ONE OF THE BEST SERIES OF ALL TIME
Verified purchase
I've been on this planet long enough to clearly recall various TV series since the 1950's - including classics such as "Gunsmoke" and "Father Knows Best" and the very first shows on "The Twilight Zone" and "Star Trek". There were 3 TV channels. Period.

Anyway, I've had many years of experience watching some great shows - and some, of course, not so great. And if I were on a desert island with only a box of DVD's as my sole entertainment, and which I had to enjoy sufficiently to stand watching over and over for many years to come.... the series "Monk" would definitely be one of my first choices for that box.

That's about the highest accolade that I can think of to bestow upon a TV series. It was continuously fresh and imaginative and entertaining, as well as being curiously warm and touching. And with characters with whom we became bonded.

"I Was Kind of Obsessed with the Show." "Really. I Can't Imagine."
Verified purchase
When I heard that season eight would be the final season of Monk, I was mostly glad. Yes, I still enjoyed the show, but it wasn't as good as it had once been. I was hoping this would give them a chance to go out with a bang. And did it ever.

For the most part, the show didn't really change a thing. Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is SFPD's secret weapon in the war against crime. When Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and Lieutenant Randy Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford) get stuck on an especially hard case, they call in Monk. Aided by his assistant Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard), Monk's obsessive compulsive behaviors and phobias allow him to see those clues that others miss.

Granted, the show was never filled with super tough cases, but this season has its share of great ones. I especially enjoyed the one that found Monk convinced he had seen a UFO outside a small desert town. They do a spot on spoof of The Brady Bunch when the now grown actress of Monk's favorite childhood show is being stalked. Monk joins a group theory group only to have the other members start to die.

But what has always made this show so wonderful is the liberal mixing of laughter and quiet, tender moments. And that is what we get here. It's like the writers knew this was their last chance to really say something with the characters, and they didn't want to miss an opportunity. Looking over the episodes makes me smile as I remember a particular line or a scene that make me laugh or a tender moment the characters shared together.

The acting is top notch as always. I've never been able to fault the cast, and they didn't rest on their laurels going into the final season. Their performances really gave wonderful life to those words.

Since this was the final season, the writers did go places they couldn't go previously. Bitty Schram agreed to come back one list time as Monk's first assistant Sharona. That episode had some of the funniest moments of the season as we got to watch Sharona and Natalie fight over Monk, almost literally at one point. Monk also was rehired by the police force. In one of the most touching episodes, Stottlemeyer gets remarried.

And the biggest question of the series is finally answered. In the two part season finale, we finally find out who killed Monk's wife Trudy. Honestly, these episodes were the weakest of the season. Yes, there were some very funny moments and memorable lines. There were also had some wonderful moments for the characters. But I was disappointed with how the mystery itself unfolded.

The box set will look pretty familiar to fans of the show. The sixteen episodes are presented in surround sound and widescreen on four discs. Extras are limited to a video commentary on the final episode and interviews with cast and crew.

I started season eight of Monk hoping it would end on a high note. Even with the disappointing final episode, it left me wishing we'd get more from this wonderful show. Thanks for the wonderful eight years, Mr. Monk. I'll see you in the tie-in novels and my DVD sets.

Mr. Monk is a Hoot!
Verified purchase
Great acting in a quirky, fun, police drama format. There is always a murder and Mr. Monk always solves it. The story of how all that happens unfolds with a great deal of obsessive compulsive diligence. If you can laugh at the oddities of human nature and just roll with it, you will enjoy it.

Kind of a modern day Sherlock Holmes with lots of laughs.

I always enjoyed this show when it was on. I gave up cable before this last season aired, so never saw any of these episodes. This was a great and original show with a great cast.

So Sad To See The Last Mr. Monk Season :(
Verified purchase
I love Mr. Monk and I don't believe television will ever have another extremely original show like this. It's a genius show and I'm not going to say it needs to come back because all good things have to come to an end. The character of Mr. Monk has helped me with some of my phobias and also the actor, Tony Shaloub (so talented), has gained a spot on one of my favorite actors lists. I look for anything with him in it now. Some movies that I already owned had him in it and i wasn't aware of it. I don't know if this is the right word or phrase, but he is an eclectic actor that i would love to see in more movies and TV shows.

I love everything the Monk Man does, but I have to wonder if ....

Maybe they should have quit at Season Seven? Because yikes, let's face it, the Monk Man finally got to be really, really irritating. Not that that blonde babe Natalie isn't the only thing I ever watched this for anyway. I always felt with her she could easily make my life miserable ... but it would be worth it.

AVID MONK FANS... AND WE MISSED THE LAST EPISODE ON TV. AND NO RERUN SCHEDULED. THOUGHT WE WERE SUNK BUT THEN WONDERED IF AMAZON MIGHT?......

YEP THEY HAD IT; IN REGULAR AND HD. AND CHEAP.

DID NOT KNOW HOW TO DOWNLOAD (AND THE INSTRUCTIONS WERE WEAK TO SAY THE LEAST)...BUT ENTERED MY CREDIT CARD AND BANG...SCREEN SAID "START" TO VIEW.

HOOKED THE LAPTOP HDMI TO THE BIG SCREEN AND GOT THE POPCORN. BUT WOW--UNEXPECTED SIDE BENEFIT. WE HAVE HD CHANNELS ON CABLE AND THOUGHT THEY WERE GOOD. BUT THIS HD EPISODE OF MONK WAS SPOOKY. SO SHARP AND CLEAR...ALMOST 3D. FELT LIKE YOU COULD WALK INTO THE SCREEN. NO OTHER SOURCE (INCLUDING BLUERAY DVD!!) HAS PRODUCED AS INCREDIBLE A PICTURE ON OUR 52' FLAT SCREEN.

SO...GOOD SERVICE. HUGE SELECTION. CHEAP. ON DEMAND. AND THE UNEXPECTED BONUS OF AN INCREDIBLE HD PICTURE. THANKS AMAZON.
