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.
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.
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.
