Goofs

It could be an astonishing coincidence that Sharona married a man with her maiden name, but if she's divorced, she would be addressed by her EX's last name, not Gail's. 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.
