I love Monk. I don't love a lot of shows, some are ok, some are eh, but Monk is such a good show. It amazes me how the character of Adrian Monk, who is neurotic, obsessive, pretty selfish and annoying can be so lovable! Now before I go on, I have to say that here, we're still on the last season and I haven't seen the conclusion so please no one spoil me. I'm excited to watch the finale and see how it ends. I wonder if Mr. Monk will ever get to re-join the police force? If he gets better? If he gets over his wife's death? It's heartbreaking when the story line turns to his wife and how it was the case he couldn't solve and how he kind of blames himself.
I like that I can watch the show with my kids around. There's nothing explicit or gory. I love the dynamic between Mr. Monk and Natalie but liked Sharona better. Randy is funny but annoying at times and Captian Stotlemeyer reminds me of Cheif Quimby from Inspector Gaget but that's neither here nor there.
I only started watching recently on re-runs, but now I know why Tony Shaloub got all those Emmys, year after year. He makes Adrian so believable and hilarious. Aside from being funny, you have the great mystery aspect and it always leaves me guessing. It's always interesting to see how Monk solves the case by noticing little things that most people don't.
So do you like Monk?
