I really enjoy watching Monk and preferred the earlier episodes to the latest ones.

As the opening credits roll, there's a pic taken at the top of a hill (hard not to do that in SF, I know) looking down at a street - there's something beautifully still and peaceful about it. Reminds me alot of some of Edward Hopper paintings.

Ooo - I've just realised I've touched the computer keyboard with my BARE HANDS - and it's not been sterilised for at least 15 minutes !!!


Yours, having a touch of the vapours.

That is a very pretty scene. I've never been to SF, and when I first saw it, I thought he was standing on top of a building. DH is the one who told me it was a hill.

I used to watch Monk faithfully until Sheronah left the show . Now I watch it when I can catch it. I personally do not like Natalie and I don't like the chemistry between Monk & Natalie.

I watch it when I see it on TV here. They had it on BBC1 a while back but I must have noticed too late because I only managed to watch a few episodes.

I really enjoy Monk! I haven't caught it in a long time though! Monk is actually from a city very close to where I live. It is no surprise that he can play an OCD character so well - I think that behaviour is a big part of Wisconsin culture, believe it or not. Maybe not in the ways that the Monk character plays, but in others.

Haha, I think of that sometimes when I'm watching.

Yes! I love the show. Been watching from the beginning, and rarely miss an episode.

When Sharona (first assistant) left, I wasn't pleased, but when Natalie (new assistant) showed up, I loved her so much more! I watch older ones now and wonder why I was so sad, heh. I really like Natalie. I even like her daughter, Julie, so much more, too. There's something with her that makes Monk almost paternal, much moreso than with Sharona's son Benji. I love all the characters, and even though some things have changed, even personality or origin-wise, it's been rather slight, and this show is consistent with so much more than alot of other shows are.

...Though, really. Could it be any other way?

I Monk. I like his new assistant better, she's less irritating. But, I would love to see an episode where the first assitant came back for a visit.

He's such a great character, and Tony Shalhoub plays him perfectly. He was born to be Monk.
