Customer Review

on 1 April 2009
It was such a great detective series ! Seeing who had done the murder at the start and thus knowing who had done it is interesting because then our hero has to pin it on someone who while supposedly helping Columbo is in fact leading the dogged detective on a merry dance. You get a good number of celebrities cropping up and Peter Falk does play the part in a very charming and engaging way with his dirty old mac and sense of duty making the performance a joy to behold.

Although an American production it is nice drawing-room type fare that can help pass a wet Sunday afternoon just nicely. It is gentler stuff than Kojak but has a bit more grit than say Murder She Wrote or Diagnosis Murder. The scripts are very cleverly written and it is always interesting to see what mistake led to the murderer being found out.

Columbo is smarter than people think and killers underestimate him at their peril. Amazon are selling this for a great price and this series deserves to be better regarded than it is in some quarters. I recommend this superb set of DVD's as a fine addition to a collection for any fan of top notch detective fiction.
