(aka 'Columbo: The Complete First Season')

directed by Richard Irving, Steven Spielberg, Bernard L. Kowalski, Jack Smight, Hy Averback, Norman Lloyd, Edward M. Abroms, and Peter Falk
USA 1968 - 1972

 

From a stable of directors including luminary Spieleberg as well as casts that included Jack Cassidy , Martin Milner, Robert Culp, Ray Milland, Suzanne Pleshette, Ross Martin, Kim Hunter, Don Ameche, Roddy McDowall, Anne Francis, James Gregory, Ida Lupino, Lee Grant, Susan Clark, Leslie Nielson etc., Peter Falk's enduring character of slovenly Detective Lieutenant Columbo was born on network television. Right from the first episode there was little tinkering to do and the success would flourish for years to come. Formulaic, but continually intriguing the series developed a following almost unheard of. This was intelligent and well-acted TV - what has happened since?  out of

Comments:

Yes, I have read the complaints - no extras... and fans have a right to shake their fist. As a moderate fan, certainly not die-hard, I am simply happy these are finally available. I almost considered the Japanese 21 disc boxset that was available of ALL of Columbo. I'm glad I waited - this is very reasonably priced for over 11 hours of solid entertainment. Nothing appears to have been done to the image, but like the Star Trek (original episodes) these are quite acceptable with great colors and relative tightness. Sure, commentaries and Falk interviews would have been nice, but it might have been overkill for the legions of buyers who just want to nostalgically look back at this 70's TV icon and enjoy. I'm content -out of
