Columbo is all high flyers, actresses, scientists, millionnaires... lovely technicolour landscapes of Los Angeles finery and the most exotic sports cars abound.
And amongst all this is a scruffy detective driving an ancient Peugeot ("I have another car, but my wife drives it; it's nothing special, just transportation.")
As always there are big stars to watch too, like Donald Pleasance as a creepy and eccentric wine connossieur. The presence of the stars is a testament to the standing these 'films' had in the industry. They are very well made.
As usual in this series, you get nothing but the eight episodes: no special features. That's a shame. Perhaps they're saving the special features for the final DVD. Or perhaps they'll be on a separate disc, entitled 'Just One More Thing'...
But I was glad I did - and now have Season Two and Three as well!
From the fashions on display it may not be entirely correct to say the show hasn't dated but while the episodes are over thirty years old they retain their sharpness and ability to entertain.
I think this is because Columbo is not only a classic show but a show with class - from direction to script and of course the "names" that appear.But the added plus of this season is I think is Peter Falk really has the character nailed.
The best season of Columbo?Perhaps.
But in my mind its certainly contains the best guest performance - watching Falk and Donald Pleasance again in "Any Old Port in a Storm" was worth of the price of the set.Despite the lack of extras!
Also on season 3 are a galaxy of other guest stars - Martin Sheen and Vincent Price in a battle of cosmetics empires which of course ends up in murder, Jose Ferrer in a bizarre episode involving scientists and robots in a think-tank, and, best of all, Johnny Cash playing.... a country music star. This last episode is completely brilliant.
It's simple, really - if you are a fan of Columbo or even just if you have fond memories of watching him occasionally, then this is the DVD set to get. It's also great value, as you are effectively getting eight film length programmes, and the quality throughout is consistently excellent.

Great series that I followed as a kid in the 70's and has lots of fantastic stories. I think the series highlight is Double Exposure which stars Robert Culp. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Officer.T.Dibble
I like these early Columbo series however it was bought for me by my wife by mistake but at £3.99 to return too expensive so will just have to keep it. Be careful what you order.Published 2 months ago by Mr Alastair Cook
