    Outstanding!

    Thank goodness for cable! Monk is in it's third season on the USA Network! Why a major channel hasn't picked it up I'll never know! Here's to the new one on Jan. 16!

    The Greatest Mystery Comedy Combination Since Murder By Death

    This is the greatest Mystery/Comedy show ever made. This particular one is very challenging to solve. Monk will amaze you. He is the next Hercule Poirot or Sherlock Holmes, with a humourous side to it. It is as funny as it is mysterious. Five stars to both facets.

    I agree, where is the box set.

    I do not have cable and only get to see this program at a friends house. I know a box set would really sell fast.

    Monk: The Premiere Episode

    One of the best shows on TV - if not the best. It shows, considering that in its first 2 seasons, it won 2 major awards (one Golden Globe and one Emmy)out of 2 nominated (Best Actor in a Comedy)The series pilot is the serie's best episode so far.

    Monk: The Premiere Episode

    This is an excellent show which, I agree, needs to have a box set released. Just to let you know, the show is not cancelled. The next season airs in January, 2004. Can't wait!!

    Greatest combination of Comedy and Mystery ever

    There is no substitute for this hilarious mystery show. I agree that they have to come out with a season 1 and two DVD. This particular episode is very clever with humor and mystery. Adrian Monk and Sharona solve the case with some help from captian stottlemyer and his partner. The partner is very funny, along with everyone else. The episode even has a suspensful scene near the end. But later it jokes about what happen. You have to see this cleverly funny and intelligent case combine into one of the greatest shows of all time.

    San Francisco's Obsessive-Compulsive Detective's Debut

    You heard right. Monk is a genius detective that has full potential to clean up crime in city streets. Only problem is that he's got obsessive-compulsive disorder, but he uses his skills as an ex-detective of the force and his attention to detail(being obsessive-compulsive) to solve each and every crime in San Francisco's impossible and unsolved crime folder. Every single time, he solves the murders in ways that no other detective can, and the comical situations he gets into due to his disorder are priceless! Never have I seen anything on TV like it, and Tony Shaloub is the one and only actor that can probably ever hit the character off so well. It's something anyone can get into, and hooked onto. 5 stars and going.
