Columbo - Season 3 DVD|
Oh, just one more thing, mystery mavens--get ready to be mystified and entertained by the award-winning third season of Columbo, starring Peter Falk as the rumpled but unbeatable Lieutenant. Having taken home Emmys for outstanding limited drama and lead actor in its '71-'72 debut season, Columbo was again named best drama for its third season ('73-'74). The reason for the repeat success? The formula remained the same: intelligent, engaging scripts and direction, guest performances by top actors, and, of course, Falk at center stage as Columbo, the most unlikely of supersleuths, but unquestionably one of the sharpest (the role would later earn Falk three more Emmys between 1975 and 1990). The 10 episodes compiled in this two-disc set again feature top talent from film and television: directors include veterans Jeannot Swarc and Boris Sagal, as well as actors Nicholas Colasanto (better known as Coach from Cheers) and Ben Gazzara (Falk's frequent co-star in the films of John Cassavetes), while the season's scripts feature contributions from Stephen J. Cannell, Steven Bochco, and Larry Cohen. And in regard to co-stars, Falk matched wits with the likes of Donald Pleasance, Martin Sheen, Vincent Price, Robert Culp (in one of four turns on the series), Jose Ferrer, Ida Lupino, and in two novel but effective casting choices, Johnny Cash and hard-boiled mystery scribe Mickey Spillane. And there's even a bonus feature in the form of an episode of the spinoff series Mrs. Columbo, starring Kate Mulgrew as the Lieutenant's oft-mentioned better half. In short, it's 11 hours of solid sleuthing for armchair detectives. --Paul Gaita, Amazon.comfrom£9.36 | RRP:

Complete third series of the popular 1970s American crime drama, following the investigations of the deceptively disheveled detective Lt. Columbo (Peter Falk), who always asks 'just one more thing' before getting his man. In 'Lovely But Lethal', Columbo investigates murder at the heart of a cosmetics company. In 'Any Old Port in a Storm', a wine connoisseur murders his brother in a fit of rage. In 'Candidate For Crime', Columbo investigates a murder during a senatorial election campaign. In 'Double Exposure', a noted doctor kills his employer when he is about to be fired. In 'Publish or Perish', a successful writer is murdered by his publisher when he threatens to change firms. In 'Mind Over Mayhem', a scientist is killed by a burglar, but Columbo suspects deeper motives. In 'Swan Song', a religious folk singer is killed in a plane crash, but was it an accident? Finally, in 'A Friend in Need', a man is drawn into his neighbour's murder plot. Guest stars in these episodes include Donald Pleasence, Martin Sheen, Vincent Price, Johnny Cash, Mickey Spillane, and Lee Montgomery.
