Storyline

When an officer dies after drinking poisoned wine sent to Captain Stottlemeyer as a Christmas gift, the captain suspects Frank Prager, who tried to shoot him outside a bar several months earlier. Searching the crime scene for clues, Monk notes that the bullet holes seem to form a pattern, but neither he nor Stottlemeyer can figure out the message they're intended to convey. To solve the case, Monk is forced to go undercover... as Santa Claus. Written by WyattJones

Good Christmas Episode
4 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a nice - and funny - Christmas episode with some nice messages.

It opens with a Christmas party at the police station. Capt. Stottlemeyer receives a bottle of port wine as his gift from his "secret Santa" but isn't interested in it. He can't find the gift he supposed to give to someone so he gives that instead. It's poisoned and the cop who drinks it dies. I won't say anymore because this has a few twists to it that are interesting.

The funniest part of the show was when Monk went undercover as a Santa in the mall. That was only a short scene, but it was very good.

There are some warm, sentimental moments in here, too, for most of the cast members and a few others. This is an episode that leaves you with a good feeling....almost perfect for the Christmas season.
