    Peter Falk is great to see.However,the stories are not as compelling!

    I like this edition of Columbo but,I am not in love with it.The original Columbo series was a lot better.This is not to say that Peter Falk is no good.Peter Falk is still good in this role.However,what is lacking is great writing and direction.The series had interesting story lines.Even when the viewer already knew who the killer was in was compelling to see Columbo solve the mystery.The stories are not as compelling as the original shows.The suspects also are not as interesting as say Robert Culp was in his roles or Robert Conrad,Ross Martin,& Leonard Nimoy and etc.It is a nice addition to one's Columbo collection.It is good to see Peter Falk reprise his role and pester the suspect "Just one more thing"his key phrase.Just do not expect the great stories you fell in love with.

    A slight notch below the original series from the 1970s but a well acted and enjoyable series. If you are a Columbo junkie you will be most entertained as well a being glad that Peter Falk returned his most famous role.

    Peter Falk always delivers

    Great collection! It's wonderful to have Peter Falk's clever potrayal of Columbo on DVD. A must see for fans of the Columbo mystery series.
