    The critically acclaimed Emmy and Golden Globe winning MONK finally gave talented character actor Tony Shalhoub a chance to shine. Shalhoub's performance as the mentally unstable title character contains just the right mix of pathos and perfect comic timing earning him an Emmy and a Golden Globe for the role. Adrian Monk (Shalhoub) is San Francisco's most brilliant detective but is unable to serve on the police force because of his crippling neuroses and obsessive-compulsive disorder. However he continues his investigations independently often solving cases before the actual police are able to do so and always seeking clues to the unsolved murder of his wife. The combination of comedy mystery and a distinctively eccentric character has led many to dub MONK the successor to COLUMBO. This collection includes every episode from seasons one through four of the series.System Requirements:Running Time 123 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: TELEVISION/SERIES & SEQUELS Rating: NR UPC: 025192669026 Manufacturer No: 26690

    4.0 out of 5 stars It's a gift... and a curse June 21, 2006
    Sherlock Holmes, Columbo, Hercule Poirot -- genius detectives are usually a bit quirky. But no other is as quirky as Adrian Monk, the obsessive-compulsive detective.

    "Monk: The Obsessive Compulsive Collection" compiles the first four seasons of this funny, likable little mystery series. Tony Shalhoub shines as everyone's favorite obsessive-compulsive detective, solving the case with his gift/curse and his willingness to go anywhere... that doesn't have germs.

    Adrian Monk's wife Trudy was killed in a car-bombing, and the devastated detective fell apart completely. Years later, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is partially recovered, but he still is obsessive-compulsive and has dozens of phobias. The only way he manages is with his assistant Sharona (Bitty Schram) -- and later her successor Natalie (Traylor Howard) -- babysitting him.

    When a politician is nearly killed in a mystery shooting, the police are baffled. So Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) reluctantly calls in his old pal to solve the case. From then on, Monk is called in for dozens of bizarre, baffling cases. His excellent memory and his OCD ("It's a gift.... and a curse") allow him to see patterns and details where other people see nothing.

    Among Monk's cases are going undercover at a prison, a killer dentist, a deadly Christmas gift, an elephant used as a lethal weapon, a billionaire mugger, saving Willie Nelson from a murder rap, trapping a black widow, the death of a 115-year-old man, the Mafia, martial-artists, murdered models, and a guy who leaped out of a plane -- and died by drowning.

    But as quirky and bizarre as the cases is, it never stops hitting the heartstrings. Monk is still passionately devoted to his dead wife; in the whole series, he goes on two dates (both disastrous).

    Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is a former San Francisco police detective. He's suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder and multiple phobias his entire life. However, after the murder of his wife, he got so bad he couldn't face the world. That's when Sharona (Bitty Schram) entered his life. She's a nurse who helps him deal with the world around him. With her help, he begins to face the world again. Since being a detective is all he knows, he assists his former partner Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and Lt. Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford) solve their most puzzling crimes.

    And they regularly seem to have some pretty puzzling cases. Why was a millionaire shot while mugging someone? How did an 800-pound man commit murder? How did a man send a letter bomb while in a coma? Why are the members of a jury being killed? Is a martial arts star alive or dead? Did a monkey commit murder? Who killed the pizza delivery guy? How did an astronaut commit murder from space?

    And did I mention this show is a comedy? Along with a great puzzle, you also get plenty of laughs. Each week, Monk must deal with some quirk in order to solve the case. Maybe it's the little things, like straightening a stack of papers while fleeing a burning building, or something bigger like chasing a criminal through the sewer.

    But there is a balance to the show. While we might be laughing at Monk in one scene, we're sympathizing with him the next. This is a real person, brought to life expertly by three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub. And he's deserved all three wins for this role. He's supported by the rest of the cast, who also shine every week.

    Along the way, Sharona left, to be replaced by Natalie (Traylor Howard).

    1.0 out of 5 stars This box is 170$ - separately 4 episodes = 120$ August 29, 2006
    Beware of multiseries on amazon, for some reason lots of them with no extra features then the single seasons are 40-60$ more expensive then if you buy the seasons separately.

    That said monk is great

    5.0 out of 5 stars Monk makes mealtimes more meaningful mostly! May 30, 2007
    Verified Purchase
    We love Monk but could not consisteintly catch his show. We have never invested in a tv series before, but this one is worth it. We try to watch an episode when we are both available which is usually at mealtimes. Each dvd has bonus features. Season five comes out soon. This is one series I hope runs a long time.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Monk - A brilliant series! July 23, 2006
    I watched afew episodes from various seasons, they are funny, entertaining and interesting with a twist.

    It was quite beneficial in terms of learning about OCD and seeing how it affects a person from day to day.

    Fun for the whole family!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Asbergers Kids should watch this! November 12, 2006
    By LBJ
    My 13 year old son has asbergers syndrome and really relates to Monk as a character. Monk is much more obsessive than our son but we all got laughs out of the "food can't touch on the plate" and "I don't have issues with change. I just don't want to be there when it happens.." kind of comments. They certainly hit home and due to the fact that Monk was able to verbalize some of these issues, we were all able to laugh about them and then talk about it afterwards. Great show. Very funny. Also, we believe the message that Monk can be successful as a human and a working professional even with all his OCD issues gives hopes to those who might exhibit some of these traits that there is life even with difficulties.

    Is the box set worth it?
    I've seen this set for about $120 at other sites (including Universal's site the makers of the series). I don't know if this set contains more or less than the individual seasons. So look around, sometimes Amazon is NOT the best deal.
