Re: Columbo complete series under $80 Amazon

This is why Amazon is pissing me off more and more. This thing was a LIGHTNING DEAL for over $100. Now a day or so later it;s actually $25 cheaper.

And if you PM them, they "might" make a "one-time" exception .. I think they should do some PM's for their customers, especially those that monitor prices and are the most upset at large discounts after purchasing a "Lightning deal".

Frakkin' ridiculous.

That's exactly why I avoid buying from amazon whenever I can now that they charge me tax. Buy it at bestbuy or target, and if this happens just take it right back to the store with no shipping cost.

Re: Columbo complete series under $80 Amazon

Even with the aspect ratio problem, this is a good price...

I feel for you TAF; but must admit that I almost bit on the $100+ price, decided to wait, and just bought it.

I already owned a few of the sets, but it looked like it would have taken me at least $80 to complete the collection, so just took the plunge here. Will give some of my old Columbo away this Christmas.

I decided to cancel my order after I read about the Aspect ratio change and ordered the Region 2 UK set for just a few dollars more which does have the correct aspect ratios as mentioned above. Glad I did! I also did like that packaging better as well. Its like a cigar box!

Hmmm, between these mysterious aspect ratio problems, the UK bonus disc, and the Japanese BD set; I've decided to cancel my order.

Anyone have any concrete links or info on the above three items?

What I know about the Japanese BR release is based on the Amazon Japan listing. Most of the extras are geared towards the Japanese fan base because the Japanese voice actor who dubbed Falk became as popular as Falk himself. That said,
