Caution: Murder can be Hazardous to Your Health. Guests: George Hamilton, Peter Haskell, Marie Chambers, Nick Najera.
Columbo and the Murder of a Rock Star. Too many guests to name, including Dabney Coleman as the villain and a cameo by Little Richard. The real Mrs. Columbo appears (that is, Mrs. Falk, a.k.a. Shera Danese), but not as Columbo's wife, of course.
Death Hits the Jackpot. Rip Torn, Gary Kroeger, Jamie Rose, and others.
No Time to Die. This one breaks the Columbo mold and is a bit outside the formula. Guests: Joanna Going, Daniel McDonald, Don Swayze, and others.
A Bird in the Hand. Guests: Tyne Daly, Greg Evigan, and others.
It's All in the Game. Guests: Faye Dunaway and Claudia Christian. Again, this one wanders outside the standard Columbo formula a bit.
Make sure to check all titles guys. I have found quite a few duplicates with the 5 seemingly separate dvds. Oh. One more thing... you might need a DVD player.
DVD collection-5 stars..you will save at least $10 if you buy this set rather than buying separate 1991-1993,1994-2003 collection
DVD-5 stars--clear pictures,full screen with crisp sounds and one-sided DVDs
Episodes-3 stars---very few good episodes in 1991-1993 collection (3 episodes), 1994-2003 collection (2 episodes)
Mr Falk as Columbo -2 stars--the producers should have retired him and replaced by a younger Columbo..he looks older and doesn't seem to fit his character anymore....anyway it was still fun to watch him crack his murder cases 100%
my collection is now complete!
Thank you Amazon.com
"No Time to Die" doesn't follow the pattern, with a kidnapping as the central focus of the plot. While this is different, the installment is rather slow-moving, with several questions left unanswered. However, it's still "Columbo" and any time a viewer gets to see Falk in his trademark role, it's worth a look.
With that said, the remaining episodes feature great performances from guests Emmy-winner-for-the-show Faye Dunaway, Tyne Daly (deserving of one), Greg Evigan, Steve Forrest, George Hamilton (second time as a murderer), Dabney Coleman, and a deliciously-evil Rip Torn.
The one with Daly, Evigan, and Forrest, by the way, features more than the usual single death, making it a landmark one in the long-running series' history.
No extras on the disc but each episode is presented in widescreen format, something that no previous compilation had.
1. "Caution: Murder Can Be Hazardous to Your Health" - Feb. 20, 1991 (with George Hamilton)
2. "Columbo and the Murder of a Rock Star" - April 29, 1991 (Dabney Coleman, Little Richard cameo)
3. "Death Hits the Jackpot" - Dec. 15, 1991 (Rip Torn, Gary Kroeger)
4. "No Time to Die" - March 15, 1992 (Joanna Going, Thomas Calabro)
5. "A Bird in the Hand" - Nov. 22, 1992 (Greg Evigan, Tyne Daly)
6. "It's All in the Game" - Oct. 31, 1993 (Faye Dunaway)
The next episode, "Butterfly in Shades of Grey" with William Shatner, was shown in Finland in Nov. 1993, but not in the US until Jan. 1994. I'm guessing it will appear on the final set, 1994-2003.
Of the above six, my favorites are 1, 3 and 6. But all of them are entertaining.
