Trivia

USA network used the term "Monkish" to publicize the series. The word describes Adrian's odd behavior, but also is a play-on-words that relates to his monk-like isolation. See more »

A Fun, Funny, and Entertaining Show
1 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I don't have cable but I was happy when the first season of Monk came on DVD. I always wanted to see that show because I heard good things about it. I finally got to see the show. I loved it. It was funny and entertaining. There was never a dull moment in any of the episodes. It held my interest. I have heard bad things about the second season but I will still watch it. For anybody who said murder isn't funny(like the last reviewer) it is not the murder that makes the show funny but Monk himself and the other characters help too. I can't wait to see what the writers will think of next. If you like detective mysteries and you like comedy then this show is for you. I can't wait for the second season to come out on dvd.
