Did You Know?


The TV show, "The Cooper Clan" has many similarities to the TV show, "The Brady Bunch". Even the house looks similar to the Brady's house (inside and out). They even mimic Jan's "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" from one Brady Bunch episode. See more »

Natalie Teeger: Don't be mad. I know how you hate surprises. So I'm just going to warn you, I'm going to be surprising you.
Adrian Monk: Wait, when?
Natalie Teeger: In about 10 seconds. This is sort of a heads up, a sort of alert.
Adrian Monk: Wait! You can't just burst in here and say "Surprise alert." You have to give me a little warning.
Natalie Teeger: Oh, okay, sorry. This is the surprise alert warning. "This is a surprise alert!" Now... surprise!

Too goofy, even for Monk
14 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We love this character, and like other Monk fans we have been looking forward to the first new Monk show of their last season. Unfortunately, this first episode was a big disappointment due to the silly portrayal of a Brady Bunch family in which Monk was dressed in goofy clothes and sporting an Afro. There were some occasional good lines, as always in Monk episodes, but this one really fell flat compared to most other Monk shows. Perhaps the intent of the producers is to diminish our enjoyment of Monk and the show so much that by the end of the season we won't care if it goes off the air or not. Since that seems like a rather lame strategy, we're hoping the rest of the year will produce much better written episodes! If not, Monk's last season is going to make for a disappointingly long winter....
