Terrific value for money,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Columbo: Complete Series [DVD] (DVD)
This box set is a fantastic tribute to the legendary TV detective Columbo. It features every episode and a couple of episodes of 'Mrs Columbo' which is a nice bonus although the series wasn't that great to be honest.
It goes without saying that it is the brilliant portrayal of Columbo by Peter Falk that made this series such a success. He is simply perfect as the shabby but very intelligent detective and it ranks as one of the greatest TV performances ever. Obviously some of the episodes are better than others, indeed some are MUCH better but Peter Falk is always at the top of his game and never less than watchable.
Several of the episodes are excellent, especially the earlier ones such as 'Any Old Port In A Storm', 'By Dawns Early Light', and 'A Friend In Deed'. They are a just a handful of fine stories but much later ones are also very good especially the very clever 'Columbo Goes To College'. This is a terrific box set with many many hours of entertainment.
Some people have been critical of the cigar type box that the DVDs come in but I think that it is great and quite sturdy. There is also a handy booklet included which adds to the overall value of this set.

My boxed set was shipped to me all the way to California and arrived in absolute pristine condition. I could not be happier with it. ('Any Old Port in a Storm' is my all time favorite Columbo episode.)
