The DVDs are what you expect and Columbo is a legend so no need to comment on that.
I only gave a 3-star rating because of the packaging - it is as cheap as it gets. DVDs are in identical paper sleeves, no labeling not even and indication of the season and disc number. Also I noticed the DVDs scratch easily in the paper sleeves.
I would have been happy to pay an extra fiver and get a decent box like you get with any other series.
In the end I bought some cheap plastic DVD boxes separately and this works fine.

It has been mentioned already but i am still absolutely amazed at just how poor the packaging is. I have over 300 dvds and this "boxset" is comfortably the worst packaged i have ever seen!

Basically you get a box which contains 13 plain black card sleeves just loose in the box. Inside these sleeves are the discs, mostly 2 discs per sleeve. The sleeves are just like the ones you get with a free cd/dvd from a newspaper/magazine. Only even worse because none of the sleeves has ANY writing on that enables you to distinguish between them. No episode listings, nothing that says what the sleeve contains, not even so much as the word "Columbo" on them! In short, the packaging is only fit for the bin so have a dvd folder ready to put the 25 discs in.

Columbo is surely one of the cleverest and wittiest cop programmes to come out of the US. While its heyday was the early seventies, the series still stand up superbly when viewed today. Its my favourite TV programme of all time.

You can tell there's a 'but' coming.

I bought this box set last February. As soon as I opened it I thought I should warn others about how gruesome it is.

I know others have commented on its presentation, but no matter how many times it's repeated, it's always worth doing again just to make sure the message gets through. It's awful. Shockingly bad. The only way of telling what's on each DVD is by referring to a flimsy paper index sheet.
The DVDs themselves are housed in pairs in a dozen or so nondescript cardboard jackets. The DVDs themselves come with a variety of designs printed on them. Some state the series they came from; others don't. It's such a mess that even nearly a year later I suspect I have duplicates of some DVDs and I'm missing others. But it's almost impossible to prove conclusively.
The shoddy production extends to the DVD menus themselves. Again there is no consistency in menu navigation; some DVDs have a single episode, others two or three.
Of course, the content, once you get there, is sublime. But it's a travesty that such a phenomenal and ground-breaking TV programme is treated so shoddily.

The earliest couple of Columbo episodes aren't quite so good, with Peter Falk a little too well dressed, but as the series progress and he gets more and more dishevelled everything starts to take off. This is really ground-breaking stuff with some excellent story lines, great badies, and quiky old Columbu bungling his way through to the finish post. So many of the murders seem 'perfect' but Columbo has the knack of mastering the murderer's expertise (in whatever field) and turning the tables at the end. Great stuff. The daddy of them all.

This collection is the best buy of the year for me. A gift for a detective show addict (my sister), she thanks me every week for the backlog of gripping and yet charming films contained within the purchase. Thank you columbo, RIP, thank you Amazon, for great service, great prices :)
