OK, I am super-late to this party.  However, my wife was a fan of the TV show Monk.  I had seen an episode here and there, but never got into it.  Now Ion TV - a cable station - has started showing several episodes in a row on Sundays.  It has now become a weekly event for me and my wife to watch these shows together...and I love it!

So, my apologies Monk fans for not jumping on this bandwagon until now!

Apology accepted. :D I'm a Monk fan too but haven't seen the most recent couple of seasons. I'm working my way through them on Netflix now. I love Monk and his quirks.

I missed the last couple of seasons also. One of these days I'll watch it again from the beginning. Right now, I'm working on Psych, which I never watched when it started (from Netflix, I'm currently in season 4, I think, plenty of time to finish before the new season starts), and Big Bang Theory (having to get it in re-runs, currently also in season 4), which I also missed originally. In addition to other current shows I watch regularly.

But I always liked Monk, I don't remember now why I left off watching.  I'll have to check out the books, sometimes I like books that relate to series and sometimes I don't.

Is it Lee Goldberg who writes the books? They're a nice addition now that there are no more shows. I love Monk, too!

Yes, it's Lee Goldberg. His last one has just been published, I think. Someone else is taking over the book writing chores.

Wow, I didn't even realize there are books about Mr. Monk. Now I'm curious how close they are to the show.

Steph, I've caught a couple Psych episodes and enjoyed those too. I'd like to watch more but my husband says they're too long.  :-\ Guess if I want to keep going I'll have to watch without him.

About as close as you can get. There are 15 Monk books by Goldberg. He and his writing partner William Rabkin wrote three episodes of the Monk TV show, including one of my favorites where Monk goes to Mexico. As an aside they also wrote one of my favorite episodes of the Nero Wolfe Mysteries.

Interesting.  For me, I have only started watching while Natalie was with him.  My wife, however, and some of my friends who were with the show from the beginning tell me they liked Sharona better.  Me, I sort of like Natalie.

There was something about the first episode that turned me off. Maybe it was that Monk really was irritating in that one. I'm not sure I got through the whole thing, as a matter of fact, he annoyed me so. I may give it another try and see if I can get to the part where he's "something other than annoying". LOL

Monk was one of the few shows that I legitimately felt sad it was over when the final credits rolled.  It was a show my mom and I used to always watch together.

That, and The 4400 (which seriously was canceled on a cliff-hanger)...

I have to say that seeing all of the Monk TV shows in a row on Sunday afternoons has made Sunday much easier for me to take.  Normally I am just too stressed about Monday being right around the corner.

Also, the theme song becomes a total earworm for me and my wife every Sunday afternoon.
