This review is from: Columbo: Complete Sixth & Seventh Seasons [DVD] [2006] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
If series five of Columbo shows a degree of tinkering with the formula with occasional mixed results then series six and seven proves more in the vein of typical Columbo with less deviation and plot twists. Ultimately this is for the better because minus a couple of episodes, perhaps, these later couple of seventies series are right up there on par with some of the earlier Columbo series.

These stories are typical of Columbo yet there's enough variation in the plotting to make each of them stand alone as unique in their own right. For example, the motives for the killers actions vary greatly at times (eg. old lady blames son-in-law for niece's death in 'Try And Catch Me' and IRA sympathies result in another murder in 'The Conspirators').

There is a different feel, however, to many of these later Columbo stories with a change of producer and particuarly a change in the way Peter Falk portrays his role as Columbo. Personally i don't like his portrayal as much. However, it does foretell the style in which he would be played on his return in 1989.

These last two series from Columbo's original run are strong but they aren't without a few reservations on my part. Still worth buying though and better than practically anything on TV today (including the later Columbo's).

Product arrived well packaged in a timely manner. I love Colombo; I have every episode ever made, just be aware that some of the DVD's are different region?
