    I'm looking forward to it but you know, if you look on Amazon there are some really awful reviews for Season 5. A lot of people said the plots were terrible and it just wasn't the same show as the previous seasons. I'll have to make my own determination but for me Columbo is like pizza, it's always good...

    I would strongly disagree with the idea that Season 5 represents a decline in quality. There are some great episodes in that bunch, including...

    1) "Forgotten Lady" - Janet Leigh as the murderess and one of the best, most downbeat Columbo endings of all time.

    2) "A Case of Immunity" - A young Hector Elizondo is a criminal protected by diplomatic immunity. The thrill in this one is not only figuring out how Columbo will prove the killer is guilty, but how he will get around the immunity problem!

    3) "Now You See Him" - Jack Cassidy's final appearance, this time as a Nazi war criminal who uses his magic act to kill a potential blackmailer.

    Seasons 6 and 7 slide a little when the caliber of guest stars fades, but Season 5 is still very strong.
