Monk, Season 4HDTV-14Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


Emmy- and Golden Globe-winner Tony Shalhoub returns as obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk, whose all-consuming attention to detail allows him to spot the smallest of discrepancies that routine crime scene investigators miss. In Season 4, we see Monk getting closer to his new assistant Natalie (Traylor Howard), a single mother who aids Monk not only with his crippling phobias, but also with his crime-solving exploits. A showdown with rival private detective Marty Eels (Jason Alexander) sets in motion a new season in which we discover crucial details of Monk's past. John Turturro reprises his Emmy-winning role as Monk's agoraphobic brother, Ambrose; Monk's murdered wife, his beloved Trudy (Melora Hardin), will appear to return from the dead; and we meet Monk as a teen and discover the true beginnings of how he became the Adrian Monk we've come to know and love.

Monk, Season 1 and 4

I really love the show, and the price on i-tunes is really reasonable, but, um....what happened to seasons 2 and 3? I mean, I've seen every episode in these two seasons (1 and 4), and the only ones I haven't seen are in seasons 2 and 3. So if other people feel the same way, we could get seasons 2 and 3 on i-tunes. That'd be swell:)


I just started watching Monk maybe a week ago, and I have watched all of season 1 and 4. If you have doubts, just check out the first episode in Season 1. You will be hitched after that. Good show.

Monk: Still the most underrated show on TV.

Not to sound too corny, but you might say I'm a bit "obsessed" with Monk. Since my wife and I don’t have USA Network in our cable package, we’re always very excited when a new season is released on DVD. Over the course of a weekend, we sit down and watch the entire season straight trough. You can only imagine how pleased we are that individual episodes are now available for download from iTunes. Monk is one of the funniest, wittiest, best-written shows on the air today. Tony Shalhoub manages to play the title role with both comic grace and a compassionate understanding of his complex character. Adrian Monk is something of a savant. He’s a brilliant former San Francisco Police detective who is forced to offer his crime-solving skills—including an eye for forensic detail that would impress even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle—on a freelance basis. While his dream is to ultimately return to the force, his not-always-under-complete-control obsessive compulsive disorder keeps his uniforms in the closet (neatly pressed, polished, and in plastic sleeves, of course). In each episode, Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine, who artfully plays Lestrade to Shalhoub’s Holmes) is forced to reluctantly call in Monk to help solve particularly vexing cases. The cases are a little far-fetched to believe that there’s a new one every week, but what crime show doesn’t suffer from that folly? Getting back into a polyester uniform and the passenger’s seat of a police cruiser (Monk is a bit too “cautious” to drive) isn’t Monk’s only objective; he is also haunted by the one case he has never been able to solve: the murder of his wife Trudy, an investigative reporter killed several years before the first season of the show. Monk’s struggle to cope with Trudy’s death provides a central humanizing theme that is woven throughout each of episode and makes Monk’s obsessive behavior both understandable and believable. Like many fans of the show, I was disappointed when Monk’s nurse/crime-fighting sidekick Sharona (former Broadway actress Bitty Schram) left the show. She had become such an important member of the cast that it was hard to imagine Monk functioning without her as a crutch at his side. But life is like that; people leave, sometimes even when you need them the most. And in the long run, Sharona’s replacement, Natalie (played by witty and adorable actress Traylor Howard) adds more of a grounding force for Monk. Natalie is willing to tell Monk when he’s justified in his compulsiveness, and when he’s being just plain crazy. Ultimately, what makes this show work is that it isn’t played as a sit-com. Adrian Monk’s obsessive-compulsive disorder isn’t treated like a gimmick. We don’t laugh at Monk’s antics because he’s freakishly abnormal; we laugh because he’s just an exaggerated version of the rest of us. We all have anxieties. We all obsess about certain things. We all have events in our past that haunt us. And sometimes, were all step a little too close to that line, and we teeter over sanity like we’re tipping in a chair. Monk just happens to actually cross that line a little more often. If you’ve never watched this show, do yourself a favor and start from the beginning. Season Four is strong, but I can’t imagine viewing it out of context. Go rent the first three seasons and discover for yourself one of the most talented and underrated casts on television. Just be sure to bring an antibacterial Handi-Wipe… don’t you know how many people have touched those DVDs?! Better yet, why don’t you just download the episodes? It’s safe, convenient, and germ/bacteria/virus/mold/spores/and fungus-free!
