Has anybody ever seen Monk? It's an awesome detective show! The best ever! :D My favorite episode is, "Monk vs. Cobra." What's everyone else's favorite episode? Character? My favorite Character is Monk, but I like them all. Sharon or Natelie? I personally like Natelie better than Sharon. But all in all Monk rocks! \:D/

My Monk Autographs

http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v642/james4theLord/MyAutographs/TV%20Shows/Monk%20TV%20Show/

I have seen them all. I have all 4 seasons on DVD, and watch season 5. HE is hilarious, his phobias and I love how he solves the cases. It is so cool to watch, and I love the show.

Monk is an excellent show and I've gotten into them more lately, but I also like Psyche too. I watch them both through the weekends.

My wife and I just started watching monk a few months ago. We are watching through the series on DVD and the EP we'll be watching tonight is "Monk vs. Cobra."

I've got season 4 on request from Blockbuster Online right now. Hopefully it will show up shortly after we finish Season 3.

As far as the Sharona vs Natalie as Monks assistant goes, we've only seen a couple of EPs with Natalie, so it wouldn't be fair to weigh in yet. It surely is a cleverly written show and we enjoy it a lot.

There is a cleverly written and very enjoyable older show called Columbo, featuring, Peter Falk as Columbo, a quirky detective.

Columbo is currently being released on DVD, season by season (they may all be out already, but I'm not sure).

Columbo is extremely observant like Monk and asks people difficult questions like Monk, but doesn't have OCD like Monk. Columbo's biggest quirk, is that he is this great detective who gives unusual attention to detail, but has a hard time keeping track of his own pen.

Monk is totally cool. My family always watches it. Psych rules also. My family love trying to guess who did it. Somone metioned Columbo, my sister has all the seasons, it has its own humor and I like his dog.

Monk and Psych are the best shows ever! (Of course, I might be sort of biased, since those are the only shows I watch). I've been watching Monk ever since the second season, and I have all the DVD sets.

About the Sharona versus Natalie thing. At first I didn't like Natalie because she was mean to Monk, but now I really like her a lot. She really stands up for him. And if nothing else, she dresses more modestly.

Tony Shaloub is totally perfect as Monk. This is one of my favorite shows, although at times it seems like they're running out of ideas. I really liked the one 2 weeks ago when he was a butler for Sean Astin. :lol:

Sharona vs. Natalie? Hmm... It's just a totally different relationship now. I think it's hard to compare the two. I think Sharona's character was more interesting, with a fully defined personality due to the way the show was originally conceived. Natalie had to warm up a bit to having a complete character and backstory and all. Now that they've defined who she is a bit more, I can like her as the sidekick a bit more than I did originally. I kind of wished they'd kept the neighbor guy that won all that money as the sidekick. That would have been entertaining, but I can see that they would have wanted a female instead.

I will do this quote no justice but here it is:

Monk: It almost made me LOL out loud. :lol:

Randall didn't sound too bad as a street performer! That was funny too!

Finally a TV show I've seen! \:D/

When I was in Chicago last month, I was introduced to Monk via a friend while I was at her house. I love the character of Adrian Monk; Tony Shalhoub does a great job! The mysteries are usually pretty good too, though my favorite parts are probably Monk's OCD issues ;)

As far as Natalie and Sharona...I only saw one or two Sharona episodes, so I can't really judge between them. From what I saw, though, both did a good job.

*threads merged*

Has anyone ever watched Monk? I was just introduced to it a while back and I just fell in love.

The whole story of Monk begins when his wife is killed by a car bomb meant for him. He locks himself away for nearly 3 years and won't come out until he has a nurse hired to take care of him. He's got a huge list of phobias, including milk, but is the most brilliant detective in San Francisco.

Give a few decades, and Monk will be considered one of the most memorable, classic TV shows of our time. Tony Shalhoub is brilliant. \:D/

It seems to have good characterization. ...although it might work out better if they didn't use the Reset Button quite as often, I suppose it's necessary to maintain the basic premise.

Tony Shalhoub is amazing in the role. It's too bad the writing has gotten so formulaic and predictable.

Darcie is correct. I'm certain that the show will be completely forgotten shortly after it goes off the air; I've seen it on occasion, and while it has its moments, there are certain things the writers consider unimportant, among them coherent plotlines, believable dialogue, and consistency.

Yeah, some of the stuff is predictable. But I do love these type of detective shows because I enjoy looking for the clues myself and trying to pick out the criminal. :3
