    TV's most brilliant detective is back, and he's ready to battle any crime… as long as it doesn't involve germs, heights or other people! Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub returns to DVD in all 16 third season episodes of the funny, fresh and quirky series, Monk. Rejoin Adrian Monk, the defective detective, who must overcome his obsessive-compulsive disorder and investigate the death of his wife, Trudy. Still hoping to be reinstated in the San Francisco Police Department, Monk continues to use his sharp intelligence, photographic memory and ever-present hand wipes to solve even the dirtiest cases. At his side are Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine), Lieutenant Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford), Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram) and newcomer Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard), and together they take on some daunting opponents, including the Mafia, the FBI and a possibly murderous chimpanzee. Monk's back on the case and better than ever in this hilarious third season, which includes five obsessive brand-new featurettes!

    One of the more clever television creations of the new millennium, Monk combines the high-grade suspense of a traditional TV drama with the quirky humor of a big screen comedy. Originally developed for ABC, the show became an instant prime-time lynchpin for the USA network, proving itself one of the more successful shows on cable TV...

    In Monk, Tony Shalhoub stars in the title role of Adrian Monk, a former San Francisco detective placed on psychiatric leave. A true legend in the community, Monk solves unsolvable crimes via his towering intellect, photographic memory, and meticulous observations. But the one case that alludes Monk is the 1997 murder of his wife Trudy, which forever altered Monk's capacity to perform his job. Suffering from severe obsessive-compulsive disorder and a number of odd phobias, Monk requires a personal assistant, Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram), for even his most basic daily activities. Yet Monk remains a police consultant on difficult cases, and he hopes to persuade Capt. Leland Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) to give him his old job back. But Stottlemeyer and colleague Lt. Randall Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford), harbor doubts about Monk's mental faculties. As Monk solves cases though, those doubts dissipate and Stottlemeyer and Disher learn to appreciate Monk's special talents - despite his inability to cope with the day-to-day activities of a normal detective... Nevertheless, he remains a de facto investigator as he and Sharona aid the San Francisco police department in solving numerous high profile cases...

    3.0 out of 5 stars A Quality Season With Many Shortcomings June 5, 2005
    Ignore all the overzealous praise of the show's third season, while it is enjoyable and worth a buy for fans of the series, next to the other boxed sets of the show this one pales in comparison and will not serve as the best way to get someone hooked on Monk.

    Monk's third season is most noted for the unexpected and controversial firing of Bitty Schram and the hiring of almost carbon-copy Traylor Howard for the second half of the season. Without even a goodbye Sharona was remarried and shipped across America offscreen.

    But I get ahead of myself.

    The season opened strongly enough with Monk, Sharona, Stottlemyer and, oddly enough, Randall all following a lead from the previous season to New York City, where, unsurprisingly, Monk had one of his trademark meltdowns.

    The rest of the first half of the third season had all the hallmarks of the first and second seasons: the random celebrity casting, the unbelievable explanations and Monk's continual grappling with his condition. However, because of the show's appeal to younger viewers many of the mysteries were dumbed-down and made more childish to bring in younger and younger viewers. The most notable example of this was in Mr. Monk and the Panic Room, which featured a possible killer monkey, a nice message for the kids wrapped up with a big bow, and and Stottlemyer literally acting like a crazy person in order to get a monkey to shoot a gun.

    The first nine episodes did have many high points, however. Mr. Monk and the Blackout is probably the best episode of the season, finding the perfect mix between past Monk episodes and new Monk moments. Also of note is the excellent performance of Bitty Schram in Mr. Monk and the Girl Who Cried Wolf, which deserves an emmy nod.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Monk June 13, 2005
    I have been a fan of Monk since the series initial start. I own the first season on DVD and I plan to purchase seasons two and three. I am also a huge fan of Bitty Schram and the dynamics that she brought out in her character Sharona. Season three is compiled of the last episodes with Bitty Schram and the introduction of replacement for Schram with Traylor Howard. I suggest that if you have seen an episode with Bitty Schram you should watch seasons one and two before seeing the new episodes with Traylor Howard. I am very dissapointed with the departure of Schram and the new turn of the series. I am although a devoted fan of Tony Shalhoub and Monk. Some of the crafty writing and strong character relationships that helped to develop the show have slipped with the departure of Schram. I continue to watch the series and hope the character chemistry and strong storylines will be revived or perhaps Schram will be invited back. I must also give praise to other characters that help carry the show. Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and Lieutenent Randall Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford) are brilliantly cast and bring a realization to the "Defective Detective" that made the first two and a half seasons worth watching.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Not-yet-hooked-on-Monk?...Buy Season 3 Third July 26, 2005
    By J. Dunn
    This is advice for the not-yet-hooked-on-Monk...

    I came to know Monk because of my mother-in-law's recommendation. (I have trouble believing it, too.)

    My wife and I have now been hooked for 2 years. It's the only series we watch and the only show we ever record.

    I predict Monk will be a long-lived favorite in the same sense as M*A*S*H . Characters, story, characters, suspense, characters and humor... The predictibility of the characters, their interplay, the mystery solving, the romance of Monk and Trudie and, above all, Monk's Obsessive Compulsive Disorder driven skill, draw fans even though it airs on Friday night on a non-major network.

    If you're not-yet-hooked-on-Monk, it's essential to watch Season One, first. (The boxed set includes the pilot.)

    Yes, there is a thread running throughout the life of the series. Background info is revealed from time to time. And, you get to feel the dismay over Sharona being written out of the script...

    "You'll thank me later..."
