|Lt. Columbo, a disheveled, cigar chomping sleuth, appears to be an incompetent bumbler. But that facade is designed to lull his murder suspects into a false sense of security. Columbo is the shrewdest, most resourceful detective in the lapd.|
Editor's NoteRaincoat-clad detective Columbo (Peter Falk) is one of television's most popular private investigators. Outwardly Columbo appears to be a pushover, a quiet man who appears to only grasp rudimentary facts concerning detective work. His mind is brilliant, however, and he always appears able to ask the one question that no one else thought to ask, leading to a string of successful cases. Each episode of the series features a careful deconstruction of events by the placid cigar smoking sleuth, aiming to keep viewers second-guessing everything until the final moments of the show. This release offers 7 episodes from the first season, as well as two COLUMBO TV movies.
