Editorial Reviews

It's time to tidy up for another season with Primetime Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub in all 16 Season Five episodes of Monk, television's most fresh and funny series. Gumshoe Adrian Monk would never actually have gum on his well-polished shoes: in addition to intellect and instinct, he also has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Though his eccentric traits bewilder his colleagues Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard), Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and Lieutenant Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford), Monk's attention to detail keeps crime—and grime—off the streets. Included in this highly collectible, 4-disc set are both the black & white and color versions of the noir-style episode "Mr. Monk and the Leper," obsessively good bonus features and the pilot episode of the hit comedy-drama Psych. Follow the clues to Season Five of Monk, the quirky and original show TV Guide hails as "alternatively hilarious and touching."

    Most cult TV dies pretty quickly, but Adrian Monk has been charming viewers with his quirky detecting for five seasons now. The fifth season occasionally crosses the line into cartoonishness, but overall it's still an entertaining, amusing little detective show... with the world's only OCD detective.

    In the opening episode, a movie is going to be made about Monk's (Tony Shalhoub) life and amazing abilities, with well-known actor David Ruskin (Stanley Tucci) as Monk. But Ruskin turns out to be the world's best method actor, as he observes Monk doing his detective work -- and starts to acquire Monk's OCD and personality. Sometimes acting can be TOO good.

    But Monk's problems don't cease when he's paralyzed by a garbage strike, and the strike leader is murdered. Other cases include a mysterious electrocution in a gym shower, being blinded by a murderer, a stint as a private eye, a college reunion, a disastrous rock concert, a leper, posing as a butler, a radio host whose wife died while he was on the air, and he competes against technology to find a serial killer.

    On the personal front, Monk gets reacquainted with his father, who left the family when he was a child, and he also tries to deal with Dr. Kroger's early retirement, by solving the crime that prompted him to leave. And he helps Randy (Jason Gray-Stanford ) out when the latter inherits a farm -- and a mysterious death.

    The fifth season does sag a little in the middle -- the retirement and rocker episodes have Monk's OCD becoming almost cartoonishly comic. But most of the rest of the episodes are quite good, with the typical unsolvable cases, unbreakable alibis, and inexplicable phobias from poor Monk.

    I have always been a big fan of the USA original series, Monk. So when Monk season 5 was released I immediately set out to purchase it and trust me, you will not be disappointed with this season. Season five comes on 4 disks and 16 episodes, including:

    Mr. Monk and the Actor:
    A famous actor plays Monk in a movie about the obsessive compulsive detective. However, the more he spends time with Monk, the more Natalie grows concerned about how the actor's behavior takes a weird turn. He also gets too involved in a murder case Monk is currently trying to solve.

    Mr. Monk and the Garbage Strike:
    When a union boss' death threatens to prolong a city-wide garbage strike in San Francisco, it's up to Monk to help end the strike by determining whether the boss' death was suicide or murder. It also is very funny to see Monk try to clean up the city by himself.

    Mr. Monk and the Big Game:
    Julie and her friends hire Monk to look into the suspicious death of their basketball coach. Monk isnt too sure and soon realizes the case may have one twist even he wouldnt have seen coming.

    Mr. Monk Cant See and Thing:
    Mr. Monk looses his eyesight after a bizarre altercation with a murder suspect in a fire station. Determined not to let it disable him, he continues on to solve the case.

    Mr. Monk, Private Eye:
    When Natalie convinces Monk to go into business as a private eye, his first case is a small fender bender that leads to a far more dangerous investigation that involves plenty of twists.

    Mr. Monk and the Class Reunion:
    Monk attends his college reunion and uncovers a complex murder plot against one of his former classmates. Pretty cool episode in my opinion.

    Mr. Monk Gets a New Shrink:
    When Dr.

    Why is it in recent years that the producers of successful television shows frequently allow writers to screw around with the successful formula which gave them a winning in the first place? We are big fans of this series, which we only view on DVD since it is the only way we can get it. We eagerly awaited the fifth season, and have gone through it one episode after the other since we received the set. It was a big letdown compared to the previous four years. There may be more to it, but it seems the major problem is a significant drop in the quality of writing. While our view at this point is that "bad Monk is better than no Monk at all," that's not much of a recommendation. It would be good if the people in charge of this show could clean up their act and get interested in it again, or turn the show over to better handlers. This show could be a cash cow for many more years in the right hands, assuming loyal followers are not driven away.

    For fans of Monk, season five is in no way a disappointment. Monk, Stottlmeyer, Natalie, and Disher are as great as ever, littering the sixteen episodes with priceless moments that will have you in stitches. (Seventeen episodes, if you count both the B&W and color versions of "The Leper".)

    Aside from a comedic make-out scene, a reference to a "sex affair" (both in "the Leper"), and some mild swearing throughout it's as family-friendly as ever. (Thank you USAnetwork!)

    The mysteries are still challenging and creative. (Keep an eye out for clues!)

    As for the DVDs themselves, the quality is excellent. All episodes are in widescreen.

    The only way at all that this product is lacking is the sparse special-features. The brief webisodes are odd and don't fit the style of normal Monk episodes at all.

    The additional Psych episode is neither here nor there unless you have a strong opinion concerning the show. (I hate it. :P)

    However, the commentary over Mr. Monk and the Leper is priceless and very enjoyable. It's worth sitting through the episode a second time.

    All-in-all, I would say that this four DVD set is worth its cost.
