Did You Know?


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 »


When addressing the class at Career Day, Steve Wagner (Jeffrey Donovan) says he flew the shuttle over Florida and splashed down in the Gulf of Mexico. Space Shuttles orbit the earth from west to east, so he would have had to flown over Texas to get to the gulf, not Florida. See more »

Captain Leland Stottlemeyer: Whatever it is, thank you for asking, but I can't do it.

Too Far-Fetched For Any Kind Of Credibility
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An astronaut, nearing a mission, is at a girlfriend's place where she reveals to him that he's in chapter five of her new book. Apparently, it's a sexy book. Since the astronaut may also be running for political soon, he obviously don't want this book published. I say "obviously" because he is shown putting poison in her drink.

Five days later, a maid comes in and sees the dead woman hanging. It didn't take a genius to see this wasn't a suicide. Even Capt. Stottlemeyer deduces this in a hurry. So, how do they find out it's the astronaut who killed the woman?

A so-so episode that started off very promising but wound up with a bunch of unrealistic and stupid scenes, such as the classroom scene, the exaggerated character of the astronaut (played well, however, by Jeffrey Donovan) throughout and the ending - none of which were very credible.
