Monk Helps Out A Different Kind Of Inspector
6 December 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

I love the opening to this. Monk is buying a shirt, his normal, customary shirt. Monk looks for "Dennis," his normal salesman but it seems Dennis has quit because some unknown customer was driving him nuts. Hmm. Anyway, Monk wants the same size, the same print - and - won't accept the shirt unless the little tag inside the shirt says "Inspected by No. 8." He knows "Inspector 8" is the best.

The salesman finds one that matches all of the criteria but there is a flaw in the shirt. Horrified, Monk winds up going to the place they make and inspect the shirts and tracks down "No. 8" to see what's wrong. He's right; there is something wrong. "Maria," the inspector, is extremely upset because her son Pablo was accused of a murder he didn't commit (so she obviously can't focus on her work.). Monk would prefer she just focus on her work so he can get his perfect shirts, but Natalie talks him into investigating the case.

This episode has a big-name guest star, Malcolmn McDowell, who plays snotty fashion designer "Julian Hodge." Monk and the crew go behind-the-scenes of high fashion modeling to find out if Maria's son is innocent. Along the way, Natalie's 13-year-old daughter Julie gets a taste of modeling.

This was a very interesting story with a neat twist at the end.
