Product Description

Product Description

This is the detective series that inspired them all. Legendary actor Peter Falk stars in his 4-time Emmy® Award winning role, as the ruffled, cigar-chomping, trenchcoat-wearing police lieutenant who is asking all the right questions, in Columbo - The Complete Series. This 35 disc box set features every episode of the series and also includes 2 bonus episodes with Mrs. Columbo and 2 series pilots.

Note: This box set is heavier than usual, weighing approximately 2.12KG.

Format: DVD
For anyone looking to collect every Columbo episode in one go this is great. Probably a bit annoying to those who have been buying the seasons one by one as this boxset is likely to be far cheaper in the long run.

The outer "cigar box" looks great although the tight lid may burst at the corners as mine did. However, upon opening it is a little disappointing that the exact same design has been used for every single DVD case, and on every DVD disc. Given the length of time Peter Falk played Columbo it would have been nice to have a large range of covers from different publicity shots or scenes. Possibly even the use of special guests to differentiate between seasons would have been nice.

Like Columbo himself, this is a very pragmatic display. Simple but as long as the DVDs play little else matters. The information booklet is quite interesting with some amusing anecdotes about production, Columbo and Peter Falk printed in the margins.

The DVD menus are very simple. Although I'm only up to season 3 at present, I notice they have gotten a little more adventurous per season, not always adopting the same look. The visual quality and sound are very good given the age of some of these episodes. Not sure if there has been any form of remastering or clean-up prior to going on DVD, but they look very clean for 70s recordings.

Overall a great set for any Columbo fan, or Peter Falk admirer. He certainly made a great character for us to enjoy. Even if 90% of the episodes follow the same methods, he never fails to provide amusement and an entertaining style of investigation.

Highly recommended!

RIP Peter. x

I don't normally write reviews but I just had to for this item. I almost didn't purchase it because a few people were quite negative regarding the box not being well made and having to get all the DVDs out to view the one you wanted and so on... Well I can say for sure that the box is very well made and does exactly what it should do. It's very small really and it stores away easily. The DVDs inside are sat in order of series and are very easy to get in and out. The book is really great and so good to learn about the character as well as Peter Falk himself. The menus are simplistic but I mean that in a good way. They are just like any other box set I own to be honest. And it's cleaver how Columbo is facing different angles depending on where you have go in the menu itself. All in all I am so happy with this purchase, I have the entire collection and half the price of buying series individually. If you are a Columbo fan or the person you are buying for is, then you really won't go wrong with this. Love it!
R.I.P Peter Falk- you will be greatly missed x

It's taken Universal quite a while to release the Complete Columbo collection in one DVD box set. This set has all 69 episodes including the two pilots "Ransom for a Dead Man" and "Prescription Murder". It also has 2 Random Bonus Episodes of Mrs Columbo. I find that a little odd as there were 13 Episodes produced.

In this set there are 35 DVDs in 18 Slim DVD cases. All the covers have the same artwork with basic episode details for each DVD. Most DVDs have 2 episodes on each. The way they have been numbered is not great and there is no overall index sheet. Instead there is an eight page booklet with some information on the seasons.

The DVDs are contained in packaging designed to look like a Cigar box. The problem with it is that you have to take out the entire contents unless you want one from the top. There is a ribbon to help with this.
The box is quite flimsy too. It would have been much better if the DVDs had been packaged vertically spine outwards. (The new 24 - Complete Season 1-7 (Plus 24 - Redemption) [DVD] [2009]is a good example of how this can be done.)

The DVDS have very basic menus which are not consistent and mainly consist of just episode selection with the option to turn on subtitles.
The audio and video quality is excellent even on the early episodes but you can obviously see a marked improvement on the newest ones.

Overall good to have the complete collection but falls short on presentation and special features.

If you're looking at this, you have probably at least heard of Columbo, but for newcomers, the premise is remarkably simple: Lieutenant Combo is a scruffy cop with an air of bumbling that allows him to catch his criminal virtually every time. Each story begins with the viewer being witness to the crime and culprit, with the rest of the show being the cat and mouse game between them and Columbo.

Writing it down, the idea seems a little weak to have lasted thirty years, but it actually works very well; by keeping the seasons very short and the stories a little longer (each episode generally runs to around 75 minutes) you get an entertaining mini-movie that doesnt need to rush to a conclusion. The real satisfaction is seeing the 'underdog detective' outwit the generally over-confident culprit(s). The format is tinkered with occasionally, but the creativity of the denouement generally remains.

The final treat is the sheer number of famous faces that have graced the series, mostly best known from TV and films from the sixties to the eighties. I won't spoil them for you, but keep your eyes open for some unexpected names!

My only disappointment, which loses this one star, is that virtually no effort has been put into the release of this classic series. There are no extras to speak of (barring the odd Mrs Columbo episode!), which, given the cast and crew roster, is unforgivable. The fact that the first regular episode is directed by a then-unknown Steven Spielberg should at least have garnered SOMETHING, but no.
Quality-wise, the mastering is good, if unspectacular, with every episode generally looking as you would expect, given the age of some of them. As the whole thing was done on film, it isn't actually a bad transfer, just unimpressive.
