Columbo Seasons 1-8Kashif Ahmed
"...Just, one more thing..." four words that have spelt the end for many an onscreen killer, four words spoken by shabby, mild mannered investigator Lt. Colombo (Peter Falk); forget your DNA sequencers & crime scene investigators, for when Colombo's on the case; its curtains for any and all wrongdoers. A great DVD set because no matter how many times you may've seen an episode, there's always something to grab your attention; with an ingenious narrative structure that reveals the murderer in the first scene, 'Colombo' is all about character and analysis. One of those rare shows that actually gets you thinking; for every crime appears flawless, every culprit elusive & Machiavellian and yet their heinous deeds are slowly unravelled by a combination of genteel persuasion and good old fashioned police work. Colombo isn't loud or uncouth, and his dogged determination draws comparisons to Jacques Vergès in that he's all about the facts, has no predilection towards egomania, never humiliates or feels the need to harass his suspects but simply lets the evidence speak for itself. As the programme ran for eleven years with seven feature length specials, they're bound to be a few duff episodes here & there, but the ratio of hits to misses is high enough to ensure the cigar chomping gumshoe gets a recommendation from me. Classic TV.
