Goofs

After Sharona discovers Monk in his aphasic condition she calls his therapist. He tells Sharona that the aphasia is centered around the occipital cortex of the brain. This is incorrect. Aphasia is due mostly to damage or stress to the brain's language center, Wernicke's Area in the cerebral cortex. The occipital cortex is the vision center of the brain, and damage to this area typically leads to blindness or other vision issues. See more »

Average episode
20 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This has the Australian actor Cameron Dado in it - one of the famous Dado brothers (Andrew is one but I forget the other ones name) - who plays the villain. He's a looker and his acting is pretty good, but the script is so predictable. The problem with this episode is that the exact timing of the crime and the follow up crimes is too unbelievable, but I do like the interaction between Gail (Sharona's sister) and Monk (who Gail clearly has a problem with). I did wonder how Gail had such a hot pad given her personality (it looked like the decor was out of a ritzy apartment interior design mag) but otherwise I have no problem with the characters. It is the banal murder crimes that remind me too much of Murder She Wrote.
