I think this price goes to Peter Falk who played Columbo. He is the "father" of all detective roles on TV. May he RIP.

I’m a BIG FAN of all detective crime series and COLUMBOwould be the number one on my list. This is a very interesting show and I remember the days that I didn’t missed watching a single episode of it! The actors did a remarkable job playing their roles in this epic series and mostly Peter Falk simply amazed me everytime he solves a problem. I don’t wanna put some spoilers here for those who haven’t watched this series yet. I also wanna share that I tried to purchase the complete season of this show as I’m dying to own a copy of this. I saw this being sold at http://www.dvdbooth.com/Mystery/COLUMBO_DVD_C... which is kinda skeptical when you first enter the site. But I tried to order one and thankfully, this seller did not really give me any headaches. The DVDs I received are well-packaged and contains good quality. Furthermore, the whole episodes are there. Now, I can just sit and watch this show whenever I want. This is certainly a precious show for me and I won’t get tired of watching it repeatedly.
