Columbo is always entertaining. Although I enjoyed these episodes, I suspect that they will be most appreciated by true die-hard Columbo fans. Some may perceive his repetitive quirks and mannerisms redundant and irritating. In my mind, this is what makes Columbo the classic detective who always captures his unsuspecting criminal.

"Ok, heres the deal: Universal continues to produce bare-minimum season sets regardless of cries from Columbo fans worldwide. We fans again and again are asking for the extras that make a DVD set special. Like, for example, out takes, bloopers, promos, trailers, that NBC mystery movie intro, rare appearances with Falk, interviews with Falk or Levinson or Link, anything remotely connected to the charm of the Columbo character...HOWEVER, we get nothing but no-frills packaging and as an "extra" some lame "Mrs. Columbo" episode, which doesn't even qualify as a spin-off because the character was never in the original Columbo cast. I, like many fans, own all 4 seasons issued thus far and have yet to watch any of the lame "Mrs. Columbo" extras. Why couldn't they have done an interview with Falk while he's still with us? Wouldn't that be incredible to hear it from Peter himself...his thoughts on certain episodes or the development of his charcter? Or perhaps the origins of Columbo, which have been stated by both Levinson & Link to be that pesky and inquisitive inspector hounding Raskalnikov in Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment".
Mrs. Columbo does not interest Columbo fans. With this mismatched formula in mind, the people at Universal might also include a live performance of Wayne Newton as an extra to their documentary on Isaac Newton.
Not The Best Season, But Still Memorable

"The Fifth Season of Columbo consist of 6 Episodes.

Episode 32
FORGOTTEN LADY(An aging actress kills her husband because he refuses to pay for the production of her comeback show)
*Spoilerish* This was one of the most far-fetched episodes. The wealthy husband is shown, at first, to be heartless for refusing to finance his "famous" wife's dream of getting back into show biz. The reveal was, he knew she was losing her memory and ill(can't remember if she had alzheimer or another diagnosed illness). Her husband wanted to spend time with and take care of her. The far-fetched part was how the suspect/wife was able to commit this complex crime. The worst part was the fact she got away with it.

Episode 33
A CASE OF IMMUNITY(A foreign ambassador steals money and murder's two people. Columbo must solve the crime and find a way around his immunity)

Episode 34
IDENTITY CRISES(Espionage with a twist. A spy is killed by his contact)

Episode 35
A MATTER OF HONOR(Columbo, while on vacation in Mexico, helps the policia de Mexico solve a case where the murder weapon is a bull)

Episode 36
NOW YOU SEE HIM(A master magician kills his employer who attempts to blackmail him after discovering he was a German camp guard during WWII)*FIVE STAR EPISODE*

Episode 37
LAST SALUTE TO THE COMMODORE(Commodore Swanson attempts to sell his ship building business out from under his son-in-law)*A very interesting who-done-it episode*"

"Dear Universal:
I want you to stop editing the Columbos. I watched Troubled Waters on DVD and there is a whole scene edited out! I know it's missing because I remember it on TV. The scene is the one where the magician explains to the police that a real gun has been subsituted with his fake gun for his performance. THe way it has been cut leaves the viewer confused as to why the magician scene is in there in the first place! I love Columbo as is. We're paying tons of money for these old pictures that would be sitting around earning no money so please give us what we want. SO QUIT EDITING will you!!! We're paying for this and I thought CDs hoave so much room, why edit? Also lose the Mrs. Columbo, that'll give you more room so you won't have to edit! I will of course purchase season 5 but if anyone ever comes out with a totally unedited version of all, I will probably purchase those!"
