simply terrific

I started watching Monk not long ago, through cable TV. At first I was just amazed watching the main character do strange things. Then I couldn't stop watching the movies because it is the only TV show that really, really, really makes me laugh. At every show I get anxious to see what "comes next" when it comes to Monk's behavior. I think one of the most hilarious act was to see Monk ironing his shoelaces in the episode where he plays his assistant's assistant at a basketball game ! that was really funny ! I would like to compliment Mr. Jack Bernstein. I admire his ideas of acts one has never heard of ! Also, a special compliment goes to Mr. Shalhoub. He is the right guy to play that role, no doubt about it.
