Overview

Peter Falk launches his sixth season as the world's sloppiest, most disheveled and most diligent homicide detective in Columbo, originally telecast as a rotating component of The NBC Mystery Movie. Those criminals who think they're about to get away with the "perfect murder" upon meeting the apparently scatterbrained Lt. Columbo for the first time are in for a rude awakening when the little man in the soiled raincoat probes and prods until he finally solves the case and brings the miscreant to justice -- usually by tripping up said miscreant with his or her own words. Only three episodes appeared during season six, but each one is a gem. "Fade in to Murder" stars William Shatner as the leading man of a popular TV detective show (not unlike Columbo) who uses methods gleaned from his show's scripts to bump off a blackmailer and establish an alibi. "Old Fashioned Murder" features Celeste Holm as the scheming head of a museum who cooks up a robbery/murder with a daunting array of phony clues. And in "The Bye-Bye Sky High I.Q. Murder Case, a clever businessman Theodore Bikel murders his embezzling partner and tries to redirect suspicion to the dead man's high-maintenance wife. ~ All Movie Guide

The Columbo series doesn't get much better than this set containing Seasons 6 & 7. So many superb episodes to choose from but this set contains probably the best Columbo episode ever. "The Bye-Bye Sky High IQ Murder Case" places Columbo inside a 'Mensa' type facility matching wits with the some of the most intelligent persons of our society. Columbo's methods to solve this case are pure brillance. This set is a must have for every Columbo and murder mystery fan.

This set contains the episode "Try & Catch Me" guest starring Ruth Gordon. It's fantastic - - in my opinion, the best of all Columbo episodes hands down! Ms. Gordon is superb as an Agatha Christie-type mystery writer who murders her dead niece's husband because she believes he is responsible for her niece's death and that he has gotten away with the crime. This episode is a MUST see! Any Columbo fan needs to see this one.
