The season opens with Sarah Silverman reprising her role as Monk's biggest fan. She hires Monk (Tony Shalhoub) to find out who is framing her dog for murder. The catch? The dog died before the murder took place.
And there is more fun to be had. Monk suspects Captain Stottlemeyer's (Ted Levine) new girlfriend of murder. Natalie's (Traylor Howard) daughter Julie (Emmy Clarke) gets her first boyfriend and learns to drive. Monk takes a job as a security guard at his bank to catch a robber. And he must deal with the consequences of shooting Santa. And he falls under the spell of cult leader Howie Mandel.
When I reviewed season five, I did mention that they were occasionally crossing the line from character to caricature. That seemed to be more of a problem here in my eyes. In fact, there were several in a row near the beginning that seemed to be forced for laughs. The episodes dealing with the nude beach and the rapper were painful instead of funny. And some of the others had a been there, done that feel to them.
On the other hand, there are still so many good moments. This is especially true of the two part season finale which advances the Trudy storyline when Monk is accused of murdering the six fingered man.
And I can't fault the acting. All four leads (including Jason Gray-Stanford as Lt. Disher) continue to do great jobs bringing their characters to life. I was disappointed that we only got to see Julie a couple times. And it is sad watching this knowing that we won't get to see the late Stanley Kamel any more as the excellent Dr. Kroger.
Monk may be showing its age. But it is still fun and entertaining. Fans will welcome the newest season into their homes.
The show works because Tony Shaloub plays Monk not for laughs but with such sincerity that I find myself, in turn, laughing, wincing, and sometimes crying for him. I also love the supporting characters: his personal assistant Natalie, who teeters between concern and exasperation; the good egg, Captain Stottlemeyer and his dim-bulb assistant, Lieutenant Disher. And Monk's sessions with his psychiatrist, in which the neurotic patient often ends up reversing rolls with the therapist, are delightful.
My only quibble is with the settings. The show is supposed to be in San Francisco, but most of it is recognizably Los Angeles (as the commentary confirms). This flawlet, however, does not detract from the enjoyment of a series that, while it might not be on the dramatic level of the great BBC Mysteries, is just plain fun.
And in a world that increasingly resembles a "jungle out there," who can't use a little rooty-toot-toot fun?
Snoop Dogg pops up in this season and I had hoped he'd play himself as did Willie Nelson in the first season, just so Monk could tell people he'd been on stage with Snoop too but Snoop Dogg plays another character in a story that is similar to that of a real killing cases of rappers. Monk trying to be a 'Home Boy' is hilarious and had me clutching my stomach in pain !!!!
The friendship between Monk and Capt Stottlemeyer is tested in episode 4 but forgotten about in episode 5. I had hoped that the tension would have continued through, so we could explore these 2 characters deeper.
The end of the episode where Monk is hugged by a nudist is brilliant. The best ending to any TV show, ever.
I will get the rest of the MONK seasons just to see if Monk finally catches the killer of his beloved Trudy, but hope the writing gets better.
Disher is becoming a joke now constantly and its becoming boring.
The product was as a good price, (not from amazon itself- and turned out to be much cheaper). Fantastic service yet again, very speedy, and always packaged perfectly! Can't fault it!
