Trivia

Tom Ohmer, who played a sergeant in "Mr. Monk and the Other Detective," reprises his role in "Mr. Monk and the Astronaut." There's an interesting interview with Ohmer, who in real-life is an ex-cop, in which he talks about working with Ted Levine and other members of the cast and crew. See more »

Goofs

The astronaut is visiting his ex-girlfriend the day before he is launched for a week in orbit. Actually, astronauts who are bound to be sent into space are secluded from the outside world for a distinct period of time to prevent contamination or illness. See more »

Showdown
19 April 2008 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Monk faces a homicidal astronaut in MR. MONK AND THE ASTRONAUT. Jeff Donovan of BURN NOTICE and CROSSING JORDAN plays a hugely egotistical astronaut who murders an old flame in a truly bizarre fashion. It is up to Monk to figure out how the guy did it, since he was in orbit around the Earth at the time of the murder. Donovan steals every scene he is in, although after goading the shy Monk in a school hallway confrontation, it is plain the preening flyboy has sealed his fate. Monk does a fair amount of running around in this episode. And his run-in with the condescending astronaut is right out of an older episode where Monk confronts a homicidal doctor who thinks of himself as bulletproof and Monk as a mental midget. The ending is far-fetched, but watching Monk run all over creation in an attempt to expose the astronaut was different, I must say.
