Storyline

Lt. Disher and Captain Stottlemeyer capture a "Most Wanted", Columbian criminal, Miguel Escobar, who's wanted for drug trafficking crimes in multiple states, and arrest him for a local homicide. Escobar is notorious for escaping custody, so Stottlemeyer must take extra precautions to ensure that this does not happen while Escobar is in his custody. Captain Stottlemeyer learns that the US Attorney General is ordering him to turn over Escobar to the Federal Government, and is to do nothing more than detain their prisoner until the hand-off, following an extradition hearing. This takes place in the same courthouse where, much to his dismay, Mr. Monk is unable to talk his way out of jury duty, and finds himself forced to hear the case of a robbery/stabbing of a man out to make a bank deposit. During the course of deliberating the robbery case, however, Monk is inadvertently pulled into the Escobar saga. Written by Lynne Boris Johnston

Funny, But A Little Too Predictable
22 December 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

You can imagine on jury duty, driving the other 11 jurors (and the judge ) nuts. Well, of course, that is the case here. It's also predictable in that he would be the only one to vote "not guilty," and, being the good Liberal-slanted show it is, would be proved correct getting an innocent black man off to boot!! This reminded me a bit of "12 Angry Men," except it's 11 angry people at Monk, and you can't blame them.

Most of the things in here, including the jokes and the dramatic ending, are pretty predictable yet despite that, it was still fun to watch. It isn't however, one of the more cerebral episodes and a little more than far-fetched....but that's Monk. To the writers' credit, the surprise among the jurors was good (one of them was rotten, and it wasn't Adrian).
