Trivia

Captain Leland Stottlemeyer is a native of San Francisco, but moved to Los Angeles and would have moved back in 1979. This is mentioned in Monk: Mr. Monk Makes the Playoffs (2009)(#7.13) when he says, "I have not lived in Los Angeles for thirty years". He mentioned in Monk: Mr. Monk and the Bad Girlfriend (2007)(#6.4) that he was 51 years old. So he would have been 22 or 23 in 1979 when he left Los Angeles. See more »

Goofs

In the intro, Mr Monk walks out the door, then returns to adjust the position of an umbrella. Mr Monks O.C.D. would not have allowed him to hang it incorrectly in the first place. See more »

One of the best shows around...
27 August 2002 | by Rattrap007See all my reviews

Monk is one of the best new shows around.

Tony Shalhoub plays Monk perfectly. Monk isn't your average detective. His wife was killed in a car explosion 3 year ago. He suffered a major breakdown and is now trying to get reinstated on the police force with the help of his private nurse. Monk's got lots of problems. He is Obsessive Compulsive, has fear of crowds, heights, the dark, and milk. Yes milk. Yet he is the greatest detective around. In one episode he even tried to straighten up the crime scene because the mess was driving him crazy.

Here is a sample story. The chief described Monk's first day on the job in one ep. It was as follows:

They were called to a run down hotel. A prostitute had ODed on some pills. Over a dozen cops said suicide. Monk said murder. They all thought he was crazy. The chief asked "why murder?". Monk points out that if she was commiting suicide where was the glass of water needed to get the pills down..

He notices little thing no one else would.

I give this show a 10/10.
