IMO the best detective TV series ever! Even though you witnessed the killer committing the crime in the beginning, you couldn't wait to see how Colombo would bust the wealthy, arrogant criminal.

That Sly Fox!
What can I say about a detective that managed to fool the murderers into thinking that he was so off track and slow that he would be unable to solve the crime. Colombo was a sly to say the least. It didn't take him very long to piece together the evidence and set the stage for the criminal to bust him or herself. I have enjoyed this sly fox for many years and I even purchased the series.
~Well worth the money~

best detective in the whole world
i have never seen such a wonderful character in my life. if i have a second birth, i would be born like colombo. he is simple,down to earth ,genius and dresses so casually and talks sooo politely and clearly, there are no words to my admiration to that character. peter falk lived in that role. no other person can do justice to that role as peter falk did.
