Whereas series 1-3 tends to be split between some very good episodes and a few that are truly great, season 4 is great throughout. It's very hard not to feel every story here is a Columbo classic and with the addition of an such an effective cast (in particuar the murderers) it's hard to go wrong. Peter Falk plays his part to perfection, of course.
There's a nice variety of different plot locations like a military academy, health club, cruise liner and a hospital which adds considerably to the attractiveness of the stories.
The DVD extra, an episode of 'Mrs Columbo' pales by comparison but it's entertaining nevertheless.
If you only intend buying just the one Columbo DVD this is the one to get.
But, I suppose it's just down to the number of episodes in each season.
It's a shame they haven't kept the same style of packaging throughout the series - this one doesn't have the attractive multi-disc system, just three separate slim cases.
Luckiliy, the six episodes in the fourth season are some of the best, including one of my favourites where Columbo investigates a murder at a military academy. The final episode is an all star affair on board a cruise ship, starring Robert Vaughan and Patrick McNee amongst others.
Image quality is up to scratch but the sound seems very low - I had to really crank up the volume.
As I said, the bonus is Mrs Columbo. I suppose it's vaguely of interest (I hadn't realised Mrs Columbo and Captain Janeway of the starship Voyager are one and the same person) but only very vaguely.
It would be nice to have an interview with Falk or something one of these days, or some background material.
Despite all this, it's still a necessary addition to your Columbo collection. Roll on the fifth season!
Favourite episode on these DVD is the one with the wonderful Robert Vaughan 'Troubled Waters' and a 'Deadly State of Mind' with George Hamilton. 'Negative Reaction' would be my third choice. Excellent.
I love all the 70s technology - the answering machines, typewriters - that help Columbo solve the crime. Simpler times and not as many high-tech advances to help him. Can't get enough of and the vintage 70s furniture, clothes and cars.
As for the DVD quality, there seemed to be a distinct improvement in the film transfer to DVD compared to season 3 in which every scene looked rather lack lustre. The inclusion of subtitles also makes this season more attractive than the previous season. Disc 1 is rated 12 with 2 and 3 being PG so the overall certification given is a 12.
Other guest stars in this season include: Gena Rowlands, Dean Stockwell, Dick Van Dyke, Patrick McNee and Bernard Fox.
It's always nice to know who you are watching and a general summary of the plot.
Nevertheless, great films.
