Synopsis


Having been put on administrative leave following his nervous breakdown after the unsolved murder of his wife, Trudy, brilliant homicide detective Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) returns to work as Monk begins its first season. Unfortunately, during his three years away from the San Francisco Police Department, Monk has morphed into the "obsessive-compulsive" to end all obsessive-compulsives, with a mortal fear of everything from cow's milk to unshined shoes. However, Monk's affliction has sharpened his photographic memory and attention to the most infinitesimal of details, thus his many eccentricities are tolerated by his old friend SFPD captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and his deputy Lt. Randall Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford). Still, the department balks at fully reinstating Monk until he is "cured" (as if!), so our hyper-phobic hero works in a freelance capacity. Acting as Monk's assistant is his loyal nurse, Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram). Monk's first case has him diligently determining a link between two apparently unconnected crimes, the murder of a young woman and the attempted assassination of a mayoral candidate. In subsequent episodes, Monk pulls the rug out from under a phony psychic detective; attempts to ascertain if an 800-pound man was capable of committing a murder that would have required a very slim assailant; tries to figure out how a man could be stabbed atop a ferris wheel without any witnesses; looks into the mystery of the "billionaire mugger"; struggles to clear a murder suspect who bears a startling resemblance to his late wife; hunts for clues at "the cleanest crime scene in crime history"; agonizingly endures a cross-country flight to solve a killing and unmask an impostor; and, during a brief rest stop at a mental institution, follows a trail of murder patients to the likely perpetrator -- and this while spending most of his time in a straitjacket! ~ Hal Erickson

    Used the Best Buy app to find that there was only one store in Florida that still had this series in stock. When to the store the next morning when they opened and couldn't find it on the shelf or even where it was on the shelf. Went to Customer Service and the young lady who helped us looked in the computer and then went to the back. Came back about ten minutes later and had a copy of the series. Turned out that they had pulled the last three boxes off the shelf that morning to send them back to the manufacturer as unsold stock. On top of all that, the girl was happy to price match what Amazon was selling the same set for. Was a wonderful experience all the way around and now we are enjoying watching the series again without commercials to our hearts content!!!

    Mr. Monk is a great detective. If it wasn't for his close friends he would have a hard time closing cases. The show also has some light humor that is not corny.

    Monk will always hold a special place in my heart. Tony Shalhoub first came to my attention in Wings and he is even better as Monk. Sorry this show had to end.

    Love Monk. Just introduced my 13 year old to him. We're spending time together, laughing and each show has some new issue that we can discuss. Thanks.

    I love this show, sorry that it no longer has new episodes. Around season 4 Natalie plays the part of Sharona which I prefer. But overall a great DVD to own!

    Monk is a great show that gets better as one tries to find something worthy of watching from among the shows currently offered. Nice collection of the series and economically priced.
