Monk at his soppiest
22 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Monk gets extra soppy as he goes back to his dead wife's alma mater to investigate the death of a teacher there. The police say suicide. Monk says murder. To solve the crime he decides to stay at school and teach the classes of the dead teacher. Yes, it IS a little far fetched, even for this show, to have Monk volunteer for such things given how phobic he is suppose to be. The schtick of what happens in class is predictable and drags on a little too long (and why do classes that have just started end in 5 mins?). But anyway, he solves it all, and gets the bad guy, as we know he will, and then he can be a little more soppy over Trudi's demise since she was so perfect (part of the plot that is getting a little on my nerves and I wished they'd downplay).
