another technical error
13 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You really need a technical consultant, As I commented before for the episode "The Captain's Wife," I should be glad to help edit material for future shows. In the ending of the confrontation with the "bad guy" Mr Monk is using what is apparently a Russian surplus night vision device. He doesn't realize when the lights come on. That would be impossible. As soon as the lights come on, the "night-sight" would bloom out,that is the field of vision would become totally white and he would not see anything, and it would probably permanently disable the device. Other than that, excellent episode. I have ideas for future episodes: Mr.Monk solves Trudy's murder; Mr. Monk and Columbo, and Mr Monk and the Coven.
