Hope it's good. My wife used to watch that show all the time, but while I tried watching it a few times, I could never really get into it.

Will he get reinstated and take Randy's  job?


The best Monk episode was when Monk was a little boy.  His cold, neurotic mom (in this episode) was a classic.

The 6-fingered guy was already killed in that show when Monk was being framed, right?

Clearly you guys are not talking about a soccer competition between rival monasteries.

I only wonder if there's a hidden pun somewhere in that message on the Egypt/Algeria rivalry Tongue

Yes - and in that show, Monk had gotten a clue (I don't remember) about who was the mastermind.

US TV show about an obsessive-compulsive private detective.  IMO, very well written & acted.

I think it was an excellent finish to the story - great resolution and whatnot.

I also thought the finale was a good finish as well. It was a great run for the show though. One of my favorites. Tony Shalhoub is a great actor.

I think it was a really good idea to have the critical realization (who did it and why) be the way it was.  I won't say more, so as not to spoil it for anyone who is going to see it.

I'm thankful this didn't turn out like a Sopranos ending.

And I agree, Tony Shalhoub has officially been one of my favorite actors (although some bias goes into that when I also found out he is an Arab American).
