Storyline

The ex-wife of a famous TV star, Brad Terry (Billy Burke), is murdered while Terry is talking to paparazzi outside the ex-wife's house. Meanwhile this same star manages to butter up all of Monk's friends and associates by giving them the VIP treatment on his TV show. However, Monk is not convinced that a crazed fan Marcy (Sarah Silverman) who confessed to the crime is guilty and must not only find out the truth, but also combat the influence and manipulation that this famous person has skillfully placed on his friends and colleagues.

Monk on great form
30 January 2020 | by kmoh-1See all my reviews

Monk thinks the TV star did it, but of course it's impossible. Is Monk just prejudiced against the popular people, who left him out of parties since the 6th grade? He doesn't seem to have much else to go on.

Monk on great form here, with the whole team playing their parts, even Dr Kroger chipping in to make him feel inadequate. But irrespective of that, the whole thing is worth the price of entry thanks to the running gag about the change of theme tune in Crime Lab SF. What Randy Newman thought about it is unrecorded.
