Reviews

Primetime Emmy Award and Golden Globe® winner Tony Shalhoub is back for one last obsessively compulsive good time in the final season of the hit detective series Monk. From the very first moment detective Adrian Monk (Shalhoub) appeared on the scene, audiences have been hooked on this intelligent and irreverent sleuth who uses his quirky phobias and neuroses to solve crimes in a way other detectives just can’t. Join him now as he reunites with former colleagues and friends from seasons past – as well as guest stars Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Lost), Daniel Stern (The Wonder Years) and many more – for some of the most riveting cases yet, including the one that has haunted him for the past eight seasons. Critics and fans agree that “...there is something undeniably stirring about watching Tony Shalhoub’s Mr. Monk take his victory lap” (Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times).

Format: DVD
For twelve years, Adrian Monk has been hunting his wife's killer, struggling with his phobias and compulsions, and solving plenty of crimes.

But now his lonely quest is finally ending. "Monk Season Eight" is a brilliant finale for the long-running detective series -- the writers have a whole season to wrap up plot threads, sketch out futures for the beloved characters, and introduce a final round of bizarre crimes that only the OCD detective can solve. And of course, they finally address the main mystery: who killed Monk's wife, and why?

First, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is hired by a former child star who starred in his favorite sitcom, "The Cooper Clan" -- and the reality might tarnish his favorite show. Among his other problems: voodoo dolls, UFOs, a Nigerian man whose wife was killed in a hit-and-run, camping trips with surly small boys, birthday parties, the murders of Dr Bell's new therapy group, a snobby theatre critic who apparently murdered someone while he was watching Julie's play, a dog Monk reluctantly adopts, and even the possible destruction of a good friend's wedding.

A familiar face returns to San Francisco when Sharona (Bitty Schram) comes back to deal with her late uncle's legal issues, but Monk suspects foul play. And Monk's longstanding dream of rejoining the police force is realized, but turns out to be... less than ideal. Finally, his ongoing investigation into Trudy's death twelve years ago takes a deadly turn -- not only is someone trying to kill him now, but an old secret from years ago reveals the truth...

Format: DVD
I've always like Monk. Often quirky, always funny and intelligent in its own way. Its certainly more thoughtful than the average detective show. Naturally, I was gutted to hear that they were ending it. Note, I don't say cancel, and Monk wasn't cancelled. They just decided that they had done all they could do with it, and that it would be best to go out at the top. Apparantly it was also getting too expensive to make, though I fail to see how, unless the salaries went up. Lets face it, Monk was never one for excessive special effect.

So we have a final series for us to enjoy, and for the writers to tie up all the loose ends and say goodbye with dignity.

The episodes are all very strong. The later Monk series are more jokey than the earlier ones, and have less taxing puzzles. They are no less entertaining though. Randy especially is the source of many running gags. What sets this series apart though is the ending. This has just about the best finale I have ever seen. I was bitterly disappointed with the copout ending that was Lost. Without giving anything away though, I will say that you will not be disappointed in the slightest with how this ends.

Like me, you will probably be VERY disappointed that it has ended, but boy does it end on a high!

I have watched all of Mr Monk's adventures since the beginning, and we loved and cared for his caracter from the off. He has been a great entertainment in my household for so many years now, and now it has come to an end he will be sadly missed. Eight seasons and hardly a bad episode is amazing, but all thing end and this was a wonderful and well deserved end. We can still revisit him with my DVD sets, but no new Monk is a sad thought.

Excellent final season, the writers have rounded off every character's story very well. I found that overall, Season 8 was better than the past few seasons, and as a big Monk fan I'm glad that they have completed Mr. Monk's story before the plots begin to deteriorate too much. The montage scene at the end of the last episode was very moving, a fitting end to one of the best TV shows of the last decade.

As a huge fan of the Sherlock Holmes type of detective stories, I have loved Monk from the very first episode. For me a single brilliant observation is worth a thousand shoot -outs and car chases.

This final season box set features some of the best episodes of all the eight seasons, with the final two episodes being real tear-jerkers as Adrian finally gets a chance to find our the truth about his wife Trudy's death.

We started watching the box-set an episode a night, but by the weekend we had to watch the remaing episodes one after the other to the end. The way all the loose ends are tied up is inspired and it felt a fitting and respectful end to this great show.

Monk sits on my DVD shelf next to the Jeremy Brett Sherlock Holmes - the Complete Collection [16 Disc Box Set] [DVD] series and he deserves to be there.
