Peter Falk is back in all his rumpled, trenchcoat-wearing glory as police lieutenant Columbo in six captivating two-hour TV movies that aired between 1991-1993. Join the four-time Primetime Emmy winner for 'just one more thing' as he goes after sure-footed suspects with his offbeat wit, wily charm, and dogged persistence.

This junk from 1991-1993 is disgustingly cheap! I can not watch them because they are so horrible. Peter Falk is too old, too campy, and too many years past any entertainment values. Whoever wrote these episodes is an idiot! Shame on me for actually putting myself through watching three of them and starting a forth.

A mix of episodes using the traditional Columbo formula -- where the viewer sees the crime happen in the beginning segment, then watches to discover how Columbo figure it out -- and the more pedestrian, typical detective mystery, where the viewer discovers along with the detective. Among these six, the former method (e.g. It's All in the Game) definitely works better than the latter (e.g. No Time to Die). Besides "It's All in the Game" with Faye Dunaway, my other favorites of this set are "Murder Can Be Hazardous to your Health" with George Hamilton and "Death Hits the Jackpot" with Rip Torn. Overall, recommended.

Warning for Columbo fans: these discs contain episodes with massive (no, really, I mean it) script plot/continuity holes. I have no idea where these episodes originated, but they are utterly unworthy of the name.

Note for everyone: disc 2 is hopelessly damaged. Neither episode plays correctly.

This series has always suffered from predictability and totally unredeeming personalities.

I've watched seasons 1,2,3 it's good stuff but you really have to like Columbo because he can be a pain in the azz.

Movies and TV at its best. Columbo was as good as BBC mystery series, and for American audience maybe better. Wish Library had even more to watch.

Peter Falk plays Columbo as no one else could and was born to play this role. A charming, seemingly absent minded, A.D.D., and considerate police Lieutenant slowly unravels before your eyes how the murder was committed. The audience has already seen how, but did the audience catch the errors ?

Oh, just one more thing...
