Product Description


Peter Falk took home back-to-back Emmy Awards for his portrayal of the indefatigable Lt. Columbo during the show’s fifth season in 1975-76, and the series itself earned two Emmy nominations, which should give an indication of the quality of the episodes contained in this double-disc set. Although the fifth season only featured six episodes, the quality of writing and acting talent is impressive, to say the least: Janet Leigh, John Payne, Sam Jaffe, and Maurice Evans star in the season opener, "Forgotten Lady," about a faded movie queen who may have murdered her elderly husband to finance a comeback; Patrick McGoohan, who won an Emmy for his performance in the fourth-season episode "By Dawn’s Early Light," returns to direct "Identity Crisis", which pits Columbo against a deceptive secret agent (McGoohan, who makes slyly overt references to his Prisoner character throughout the episode), and "Last Salute to the Commodore," with John Dehner and Robert Vaughn as relatives whose disagreement over the fate of a shipping line turns deadly; and then-newcomers Steven Bocho and Steven Spielberg write and direct, respectively, "Murder by the Book," with Jack Cassidy returning for his fourth Columbo turn as a devious PR agent. As far as TV mysteries go, few have been as clever, well acted, and intricately plotted as Columbo, and home detectives should find plenty of sleuthing material to enjoy here. Unfortunately, as with all previous Columbo boxes, the supplemental material is limited; the "Caviar with Everything" episode of the Mrs. Columbo series with Kate Mulgrew is this set’s sole extra. --Paul Gaita

Is there anything better than seeing the crime and then watching how Columbo figures it out? They don't write 'em like this any more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Columbo Season Five Nov. 4 2012
Peter Falk is Inspector Columbo!
See how he solves the murder in the first ten minutes of the case,
then spends the rest of the show proving it!
This is a must have for the Columbo Fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best TV detective of all time March 19 2006
There have been many complaints (see amazon.com) about the Columbo series from various fans. Some have complained about the "two-sided" discs in Season three. I suspect that some of the problems with "skips" on these discs have to do with the DVD player's in use. I have had no problem with any of them. Others have complained about having no "extra's" on the discs.
Lighten up, guys and gals. COLUMBO IS FINALLY ON DVD!!! It is a Columbo fan's dream come true. I LOVE them all! Courts in the U.S. have declared it is prefectly legal to make "backup" copies strictly for personal use. Anyone with concerns about the double-sided discs should do so.
I have just viewed the DELIGHTFUL season FOUR, and I anxiously await season FIVE on June 27. I have all 69 of the Columbo episodes on VHS tape from TV, but what a pleasure to have them on DVD. And, of course, since VCR's did not exist for the general public when the original 45 shows aired, most of the shows were done on a re-run basis with footage cut for extra commercials. WHAT A PURE PLEASURE to see scenes not viewed since the shows were originally aired!
I heartily recommend Seasons 1 to 4 for the true Columbo fan. GET 'EM!! ENJOY then for what they are! Classic TV in every sense of the word!
