An excellent collection of Columbo,
This review is from: Columbo, Season 10, Volume 1 [DVD]  (DVD)
The 80's/90's revival of Columbo got off to a shakey start with dull stories and pointles padding eg Columbo playing the tuba in Sex And The Married Detective. Thankfully things did improve and this collection (season 10 part 1) contains some excellent episodes which are more like the original 70's series.
The episodes in this 4 disk set are :-
Columbo Goes To College
Caution : Murder Can Be Hazadous To Your Health
Columbo And The Murder Of A Rock Star
Death Hits The Jackpot
No Time To Die
A Bird In The Hand
It's All In The Game
Butterfly In Shades Of Grey
Nearly all of the episodes are enjoyable. The only one I wasnt so keen on was No Time To Die which was more like a bad cop show than an episode of Columbo. You will see what I mean when you watch it. I really enjoyed Butterfly In Shades Of Grey, Caution: Murder Can Be Hazadous To Your Health and Death Hits The Jackpot.
The new Columbo's have been critersized for having weaker murderers but this set has some excellent killer including Rip Thorn, Faye Dunnerway and even has some actors who appeared in the original 70's series including William Shatner and Robert Culp. So if you miss the old style Columbo then why not give this dvd set a go.
