"Columbo" is a murder mystery television series, starring Peter Falk (1927 to 2011) as Lieutenant Columbo, a homicide detective with the Los Angeles Police Department.
This series popularized the inverted detective story format or "HowdHeCatchem" format where in almost every episode began by showing the commission of a murder by a killer. There is no "WhoDunIt" element.
The plot mainly revolves around the killer or killers, whose identity is already known to the audience, and how he, she, or they will be caught and exposed.
Columbo is a friendly, verbose, dishevelled-looking detective (his trademark attire is a rumpled raincoat over a suit and tie) of Italian decent who is consistently underestimated by his suspects. He has increasingly irritating, pestering behaviour with those he thinks committed the crime. Columbo has certain unforgettable catchphrases (one of which titles this review).
The episodes were broadcast from (1968 to 1978) and from (1989 to 2003). There were 69 (45 + 24) episodes in total.
This collection contains the six episodes that were televised in the years (1991 to 1993). They are presented in chronological sequence. The titles of these episodes and my brief impression of them are given below:
(1) Caution! Murder can be hazardous to your health: 1 hr, 30 min; Guest star: George Hamilton; Filmed in 1991; Excellent
(2) Columbo and the murder of a rock star: 1 hr, 35 min; Guest stars: Dabney Coleman with a cameo by Little Richard; Filmed in 1991; Excellent
(3) Death hits the jackpot: 1 hr, 36 min; Guest stars: Rip Torn and a chimp; Filmed in 1991; Excellent
(4) No time to die: 1 hr, 31 min; Filmed in 1992; Bad.Read more ›
