Description

Multi-Emmy-winner Tony Shalhoub returns as obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk for an all-new fifth season of Monk. An impressive lineup of guest stars includes two of Shalhoub's former co-stars: Stanley Tucci (Big Night), who plays a famous actor preparing to play Monk in a movie, and Steven Weber (Wings), who plays a radio shock jock that Monk believes killed his wife. Other challenges awaiting Monk in Season 5 include a San Francisco garbage strike, a 25-year college reunion, Monk going temporarily blind after witnessing a murder in a fire station, and the retirement of his trusted therapist, Dr. Kroger.

Customer Reviews

Monk is no longer great, but I'm still watching.

While Monk is still one of my favorite shows, it doesn't feel as fresh and new this season. I love how exploration into Monk's idiosyncrasies continues to go deeper and deeper -- I love learning more and more about this character. Unfortunately, the actual crimes and cases that they are put on seem to be taking a backburner to spotlighting on the character. In the first three seasons, and even into the fourth season, the writers kept me guessing as to who was the real murderer, but not anymore. I find many of the cases simplistic; I get the impression that, whereas the cases used to be equally important as highlighting Monk's character, lately the complexity of the cases has taken a backburner; whereas the clues as to "whodunit" were challenging before, now they are just obvious and boring; whereas, in previous seasons, I had to pay attention to every scene so that I was able to follow along, lately I can put my brain on autopilot and still reach the same conclusions. My conclusion is this: either I'm getting smarter, or the writers and producers of one of my all-time favorite shows are getting lazy and/or simplistic. I ask you to keep challenging us as an audience, because that is what we've come to expect from our beloved saga of the obsessive compulsive detective.

I've said it before...

and I'll say it again. This show is quite entertaining and with all of Monk's personal 'issues', it makes for a good show. I hope to eventually see him make a triumphant return (in some capacity) to the police force. The show's writers and producers should really think of taking him in another direction to ensure the show's longevity. It's season 5 and he should at least be CLOSER to finding Trudy's murderer. I hope the show's writers will try to refrain from letting the show's popularity carry it along. (It won't work if that's what they're trying to do.) They need to step up their creativeness and keep us guessing like they did in the previous seasons.

YES!!!
