*bumps old thread*
I've recently gotten into watching Monk - yeah, plotlines are kind of ehh boring, but it's a nice family show, and it's whimsical enough to grab one's attention.

Actually, I probably like the show mostly because Monk reminds me of myself.

But yeah. Go Monk. Other fans, here?

I have never seen it, but from what you describe, it sounds great! An OCD detective... it has potential. I have a friend who liked to watch it.

Is it similar to "Columbo"?

they have that so people who have never seen it can just join in. it's the exact opposite of shows that have ultra continuity and basically rely on faithful viewers.

I haven't watched it yet myself, but my girlfriend loves the show. I'm pretty sure she will make me watch all of it before too long. :D (Which I won't mind.)

I'm so happy that Monk started up again, because now I have something good to watch again. Along with Psych, Monk is the best comedy show out there. Too bad it's getting canceled. But for a show to go for 8 seasons is really an achievement. Most shows are lucky if they get two. Never fear, the defective detective isn't going away yet - last week just started the second half of the seventh season, and then there will be the whole eighth season. I'm sad, but I'm very excited to see how they end it. Surely they'll explain Trudy's murder, which will possibly be the most unbelievable mystery ever, because it will have taken Monk like 13 years to solve it.

How does the language get throughout the season? I've watched the first season, and though I'm not offended by hearing mild swear words, it gets a little uncomfortable hearing the Lord's name in vein sprinkled throughout the episode--especially by Monk...and especially when I watch it with my parents. Do they ease up on it as the show continues..?

A friend of mine loves this show. I watched a clip on YouTube (and it made me laugh), but I don't get the USA Network.

I was debating to bump this or not... but it isn't... TOO terribly long since it was last posted in... it has just... been bumped a lot over the last couple years. >_>

Anyway, great show. I never watched it once in its original run on USA but now all the seasons are available on Netflix instant streaming and we have been going through them... we are just over halfway done. \:D/

Monk is one of, if not my favorite, crime show. I own the whole series. I'll agree that some of the plots are a little weak and there are so many inconsistencies it's laughable. =p But I just love the character of Adrian Monk, I actually relate to him when it comes to his anxiety and irrational fears... BUT ANYWHO, Adrian has such a childlike essence about him I can't help but love him.

Dunno if this would be a spoiler for people or not.. but I'll put it in a spoiler anyway.
I was so sad when Sharona left the show! D= I LOVED HER CHARACTER. I couldn't stand Monk's new partner, Natalie. :x Though, after her first-second season on the show her character did improve and I started to like her more.
