Monk: Season 7
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
"Mr. Monk Falls in Love" is one of the more poignant stories in season seven, in which Monk is thunderstruck by a beautiful social worker who also happens to be the lead suspect in a cab driver's murder. Denying his feelings (fearing he is being unfaithful to the memory of his late wife, Trudy), Monk springs into action when it looks like he might lose a second chance at love. "Mr. Monk's Other Brother" offers a very funny performance by Steve Zahn as Monk's long-lost and very much alleged brother, an escaped convict. Deeply dubious, Monk nonetheless hides him and openly lies to his cop friend, Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine), while trying to prove the fugitive is innocent of murder. "Mr. Monk and the Bully" is a dark episode in which the detective is hired to follow the wife of a former school bully who made Monk's childhood hell. When the husband is accused of murder, Monk savors the thought of his nemesis being convicted, even if he knows the villain is innocent. Finally, "Mr. Monk Fights City Hall" concerns Monk's frantic efforts to stop the demolition of a garage where Trudy was murdered. Touching but funny, the story is a fitting end for Monk: Season Seven. --Tom Keogh

In the meantime, the seventh season of his dramedy/mystery series holds up well and shows little signs of its age. It's got everything you'd expect of "Monk" -- new phobias, personal crises (shot in the leg!), lots of hilarious writing, bizarre mysteries, and the celebration of Mr. Monk's one-hundredth case.
Monk is having more trouble than ever after Dr. Kroger unexpectedly dies, and the neighbor girl starts playing the piano. So he decides to buy the house of an old man who recently fell down the stairs. Unfortunately, some creepy people want to get their greedy hands on whatever is hidden in that house -- and they'll destroy his dream-house to do it.
Unfortunately (for Monk) it's the least weird case he encounters this season. He has to deal with (in no particular order): a murdered homeless man, miraculous fountains, lottery murders, a stolen bike at a biotech lab, submarine "suicides," exploding grills, protecting a boxer, the impossible murder of Monk's annoying neighbor, and a manly-bonding football game with Stottlemeyer.
And Monk struggles with his own problems, with the help of his new therapist Dr. Bell (Hector Elizondo) and his assistant Natalie (Traylor Howard: bad hypnosis, a kindly old lady, a crush, a looming physical, and a half-brother escaped from prison. And Monk tries to stop the parking lot where Trudy died from being demolished, only for the council-woman involved to be found murdered in the bay...
Most quirky TV series don't survive past the first few episodes, or the first season at most.Read more ›
**** Out of 5
Tony Shalhoub, Traylor Howard, Jason Gray-Stanford and Ted Levine
Here we are with the 7th season of Monk and it was yet another strong season in this truly excellent series; the later seasons seem to get some mixed reactions from fans, but I personally thought season 4-6 were among the best of the series.
With that said though I do think there might have been a couple of more duds per season, but as a whole I thought they had the strongest of episodes. The 7th season of Monk got off to an ok start and I started thinking it seems age has finally fully caught up to the show, but soon the series works itself out well and became a fantastic season and provided some great moments.
Ted Levine returns as Capt. Leland Stottlemeyer and Jason Gray-Stanford as Lt. Randy Disher; both Levine and Stanford really help elevate this show and both actors work so well together and work well with the rest of the cast. But of course Tony Shalhoub as Monk is the reason for tuning in.
Tony Shalhoub has won numerous awards and plenty of critical acclaim for the role of Adrian Monk and Shalhoub is more than deserving of all the credit he gets. Tony Shalhoub is no doubt of the greatest comedic actors of all time and just might be the best to ever grace the small screen; as Monk, Shalhoub is funny, tragic and quite sad and more often than not, Shalhoub mixes all these together at the same time. As great as Tony has been through the years I think this might be the best work he's done during the run of the show.
The actors really work so well together and even in the weaker episodes they still have funny moments thanks to the very talented cast.Read more ›

|Any news yet about a complete Monk boxed set?||
I bought a complete boxed set at amazon.co.uk. for all 6 seasons. Check it out there - and it was dirt cheap too. The only thing is that it will be region 2. The seventh season hasnt been released yet.
