Decent episode
17 September 2020 | by paredesyanetSee all my reviews

There is one person on here that is always leaving reviews for the show calling monk a moron and hi the show sucks. It's interesting that someone that hates the show that much goes out of his way to watch and comment on every episode what a sad moron!
