Product description

Product Description

The combined sixth and seventh series of investigations 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: (Season 6) 'Fade in to Murder' 'Old Fashioned Murder' and 'The Bye-bye Sky High I.Q. Murder Case'. (Season 7) 'Try and Catch Me', 'Murder Under Glass', 'Make Me a Perfect Murder' 'How to Dial a Murder' and 'The Conspirators'.

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 the complete sixth and seventh series of the show.

S7 was the last good series of Columbo. There are some very familiar faces in these episodes and some clever twists and turns in fact it's everything you would expect from the great man. It doesn't quite have the edge of the earlier series but still worth a watch.

This set contains some of the best episodes of Columbo, and as always the battle of wits between the detective and the murderer is a pleasure to watch. If not perhaps a thing of beauty, he is always a joy to watch.

In 'Fade in To Murder' Columbo has to solve a murder committed by an actor who just happens to be the star of a popular television detective series. The actor, splendidly played by William Shatner, is anxious to help Columbo solve the crime. In 'An Old-Fashioned Murder', a museum curatior murders her brother to stop him from selling off her beloved museum. In 'The Bye-Bye-sky-High I.Q. Club' the head of a society for people with very high I.Q>s quickly discovers that Columbo is smarter than he is.

In 'Try and Catch Me' Columbo is on the trail of a mystery writer (brilliantly played by Ruth Gordon) who murdered her niece's husband, believeing him to be responsible for her niece's death. 'How to Dial a Murder' contains perhaps the most fiendishly ingenious murder method ever devised in an episode of Columbo. 'Murder Under Glass' which features Louis Jordan as a blackmailing food critic who murders the chef who intends to expose him, is not an episode that should be viewed when hungry, as Columbo is offered delicious things to eat in just about every scene. However, whether you are hungry or not, this DVD set is bound to give you satisfaction.

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).

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.

Columbo has always been my favourite TV detective. I usually prefer old school 'tecs since technology does so much of the work in later series. (For example, as much as I like the CSI's there's often too much tech.)

These final series of the original runs are indeed closer to earlier Columbos in format and for the most part benefit from that.

Hours of good television viewing and one of the few programs that my wife and I *both* universally agree on.
