Product Description

Volume two of the tenth series of the 1970s American detective drama featuring Peter Falk's now-classic depiction of the trenchcoat-clad detective Columbo, who uses his humble ways and disingenuous demeanour to winkle out even the most well-concealed of crimes. Episodes are: 'Undercover', 'Strange Bedfellows', 'A Trace of Murder', 'Ashes to Ashes', 'Murder With Too Many Notes' and 'Columbo Likes the NightLife'.

Synopsis

One of the most famous detectives to ever hit the television screen, Columbo (Peter Falk) has become an iconic character in popular culture. Forever clad in a raincoat and chomping a cigar, the dishevelled Columbo seems as scatterbrained as his appearance would suggest. However, even when it appears that his investigation is going nowhere, Columbo's keen mind is absorbing details and clues, until finally he reveals that he knows everything that's happened. Each episode opens with a murder, followed by Columbo's investigation, and finally his revelation of how he put the events together. Columbo became popular and famous for its clever dramatic structure and Peter Falk's winning portrayal of the detective. This release includes a selection of episodes from the tenth series of the show.

Whilst the last episodes in the 35-year run of the series lack some of the precision of those in the 70s heyday, this set is nonetheless still fantastic fare for all Columbo fans. Admittedly "Undercover" is a slight departure from the original format - though it is entertaining and nowhere near as bad as the awful "No Time To Die" experiment earlier in the decade. But "Ashes To Ashes" and "Strange Bedfellows" can stand tall with many of the best in the entire series. There are even some better calibre guest stars than in much of the latterday series, with Patrick McGoohan, Rue McClachlan, Rod Steiger, Billy Connolly, Ed Begley Jr, George Wendt and Tyne Daly all cropping up here and there. All in all newcomers might be better off starting with some 70s episodes (I'd suggest Season 2 or Season 6/7 myself), but this is again an essential purchase for all Columbo afficiandos.

Columbo season 10 volume 2 is not exactly an accurate title for the episodes included in this set were tv movies and not an actual series. This is only a minor gripe as the episodes included in this 3 disk set are excellent.

The episodes are Undercover, Strange Bedfellows, A Trace Of Murder, Ashes To Ashes, Murder With Too Many Notes and finally Columbo Likes The Nightlife. As I said before I enjoyed all of these episodes especially Ashes To Ashes and Columbo Likes The Nightlife.

The guest stars are excellent and include Billy Connolly who appears in the story Murder With Too Many Notes, Patrick McGoohan makes his fourth and final appearance in Columbo in the episode Ashes To Ashes.

The picture and sound quality is pritty good. The only slight dissapointment is the usual lack of special features on the dvd. A retospective on the series would have been nice or a audio commentary track on some of the episodes would have been great. Still you can't have everything. What you do get is 3 disks of classic Columbo. A great finalie to one of the best detective series to appear on television.

To complete your DVD collection of Columbo takes just one more thing - this DVD boxed set of the final 6 Television movies. It is quite remarkable that a detective series should be so compelling when, after the first ten or fifteen minutes, one knows who did it, how they did it and why. It is, of course, down to the marvellous character creation that is Columbo. As ever, he bumbles his way through the rich and glossier parts of Hollywood society - a seeming innocent abroad amongst smooth scheming sociopaths but capable of disarming them with his rumpled raincoat, clapped out car, cigar habit and, most critically, sharp mind for those important inconsistencies of detail.

It has to be said that some of these episodes don't follow the usual formula - notably 'Undercover' - but Peter Falk remains imperious as Columbo throughout. Since the pilot all those years ago he has worn the character like a second skin and is as convincing in these final episodes as then, too. Whilst he is as dogged as ever there is, quite possibly, a more liberal dash of humour and wit to these episodes. It is also good to see Patrick McGoohan taking a hand - as both actor and director - in a few episodes because he, perhaps as much as anyone, got what Columbo was about when it came to a battle of wits between the detective and his adversaries.

Finally, a word on the final episode,'Columbo Likes The Nightlife'. In terms of structure, plot and the character of Columbo it is a typical 'Columbo' story. However, as is perhaps fitting for the final episode, it is almost like a clash of two television cultures - the old and the new.

I love Columbo and have every season. I've been waiting to get season 10 but it's not available in the US! Why?? So, I just had to buy it! From the UK! It was awesome watching these episodes again!

Have been waiting for a while for these tiles of Columbo to complete my series.
Previously had a poor VHS copy of these movies. Now I can recommend these titles without reservations. Thank you

I love the Columbo series vary much. It was simply unique in that we always knew who the murderer was and how the deed was committed. Instead, we had to watch Columbo figure it out for himself and to trap the killer into confessing. I prefer the early series, the ones made in the 70's. I can't explain exactly why but they just seemed better. There was always a host of stars who made appearances throughout the 10 series, including Donald Pleasance, Patrick McGoohan, William Shatnar, Leonard Nimoy, Roddy McDowall, and on the list goes.

There are no extras on these DVD sets, but the picture and sound quality are vary good.

I'm not sure why they split series 10 into two separate DVD sets. To make more money I guess.

This review is for season 10, Volume 1. I previously reviewed No Time to Die from that package - an episode no true Columbo fan should even THINK about watching, however, in the same package is perhaps THE GREATEST EVER Columbo episode - It's All in the Game with Faye Dunaway. This riveting episode left me emotionally drained. Can anyone watch it and not be reduced to tears at the end? Did Faye Dunaway win a deserved TV 'Oscar'? It is Peter Falk's greatest moment, and it seems he wrote it. IF season 10 cannot be regarded in the whole as the best ever Columbo season, make some allowance for this and BUY IT for NO Columbo fan should miss out on this particular episode. The greatest triumph in dramatic movie making. An overwhelming experience.
