I'm a nostalgia buff and most of the shows and movies I love date back to the late 1980's or the 1990's. Great DVD buys help feed that habit. This set of late Columbo movies is helping build my collection.
Not as good as classic early vintage Columbo, these 6 movies feature a gray and ageing Peter Falk reprising his classic role as the bumbling-but-brilliant cop. Lovably rumpled, still driving his classic clunker and living out predicable plots.
If you're new to Columbo, this collection gives you a fair taste of this poor man's pre-Monk detective. For seasoned veteran fans carving a dose of good old dependable entertainment, this may hit the spot.
With neat plot twists and fun guest stars like William Shatner, George Wendt, Tyne Daly, this is a fairly good entertainment investment for the money. TV mystery-movie nostalgia to be enjoyed on a rainy lazy day. Or if you're home sick with the flu.
