A big disappointment--possible spoiler
6 December 2009 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

I, on the other hand, have to agree with Shaver Dave. The finale of Monk packs an emotional wallop without a doubt. There were some very sweet and touching moments, and I was sniffling and teary-eyed all the way through it. But, afterward when I had time to think about it, I really felt let down--not only the details brought up before, but why all the fuss in the first place? Even 25 years ago (and I'm in my fifties, I was around back then), I don't think an extramarital affair would have ended a state-level judge's career. Sure, there'd be an embarrassing press conference but that would be the end of it. And Trudy was married to a cop. Leaving alone the plot hole that first she was parked there to pick up medication and now all of a sudden she's there to meet the judge, if she thinks somebody's stalking her and threatening to kill her, what's she going to do--ask her husband to have the guy picked up (or at least follow her to the meeting), or leave this touching videotape saying, "Oh, by the way, let me explain why I was murdered?" Oh, and by the way, how many of us still own VCR's?

To be honest though, didn't the last couple years of Monk seem like the writers were struggling for plot ideas anyway? I think it's going to go down in television history with MASH as having lasted a few seasons too long.
