      The Columbo Mystery Movie Collection 1989 DVD set is a three DVD set that includes just five Columbo episodes. It’s not much, but that’s all of the movies that aired in 1989.

      I don’t like how the DVDs are set up, however. Universal isn’t known for providing quality sets. While season one was superb, their season 3 set for

      Columbo was dual-sided and without any artwork. This 1989 set isn’t quite that bad. However, instead of having individual holders for each DVD, one is placed alone on the left side of the disk holder, while the other two actually overlap each other on the right side.

      This means that to get to the bottom one, you have to ...

      • remove the top one first. It also allows for easier damage, via scratching and whatnot, for the two overlapping DVDs. It’s a cheap move.

        At least the DVDs are labeled Columbo, unlike that notorious third season set. Since the regular season versions (which went through the seventh season) were basically white covers and DVDs, this 1989 set is black,

        both in the DVD appearance, the disk holders, and the box that the holder slips into when not in use.

        There is one bonus item on this set. It’s from the Sleuth Channel and is called America’s Top Sleuths. It’s just a so-so offering, but Peter Falk does appear on it talking about Columbo. It was done circa 2006.
