Season Six went back to the formula that made the show one of the highest rated cable shows ever. Adrian's character went through a few new wrinkles (as it did every season) but the show was classic Monk. It works because the show offers a crime, puts Monk in uncomfortable situation which, whether the viewer has OCD or not, can relate to. We have all been frustrated by situations where we feel uncomfortable but there is really nothing we can do about it.

Several of the episodes have quickly become fan favorites. Mr. Monk and the Rapper (not one of my favorites) is off the charts on the USA/Monk website as one of their favorites of all time. Mr. Monk and the Bad Girlfriend gave the relationship between Monk and Captain Stottlemeyer a great deal of tension before it was resolved. Fascinating plot lines were developed in Naked Man, Birds and the Bees, Daredevil, Goes to the Bank, Three Julies, and Joins a Cult.

In the end, Season Six was one of the best because there were no weak episodes and it was capped off with a real barnburner in the two-part finale, Mr. Monk is on the Run. I'm hungry for Season Seven.

It must be admitted that the fifth season of "Monk" had some rough patches, where Monk's OCD was overwritten and the plots got a bit limp.

But the obsessive compulsive detective is still going, and fortunately "Monk" is still one of the best shows on television. And the sixth season continues "Monk's" grand tradition -- solidly-written mystifying stories, quirky detecting, and some excellent acting from Tony Shalhoub. Even better, the two-part finale really shows "Monk" off at its absolute best.

As the season opens, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) finds that his obsessed groupie Marcy Maven (Sarah Silverman) needs to hire him, despite a restraining order. So she "buys" him at a bachelor auction and makes him work on a bizarre case -- her dog is being accused of killing someone, but the dog died before the murder took place. Needless to say, there's more than meets the eye.

Among the other cases the OCD detective has to deal with: a framed rapper, murder on a nudist beach, an investigation overlapping with Julie's love life, stolen safety-deposit boxes, treasure maps, a daredevil who might be his archnemesis, insomnia, going undercover in a cult, a newfound painting hobby, and a shot Santa. He even has to investigate Stottlemeyer's (Ted Levine) girlfriend.

But the story takes a darker turn toward the end of the season. Monk finds a lead for the "six-fingered man" who killed Trudy, and confronts him... and after a struggle, the six-fingered man is dead. A rural sheriff arrests Monk, but Monk insists that he's innocent -- and he's determined to find out who is framing him. But with the police after him and a conspiracy in motion, can he solve the murder before he's caught?

This review is dedicated in the memory of Stanley Kamel who played Dr. Charles Kroger in the first 6 seasons of Monk. Stanley Kamel sadly passed away in April of 2008. He was a deeply talented character actor and he will be missed on Monk.

In general as a show goes on it doesn't get better, but there are exceptions; some shows like The Shield seem to get better each season and Monk while maybe not getting better is still just as good now as it ever was. After the first half of season 3 ended Sharona was out as Monk's assistant and Traylor Howard as Natalie was in. I thought that gave Monk a much needed jolt and helped keep things fresh. In many ways it was like starting over again.

A lot of critics felt season 3 was a letdown, I disagree; the 2nd half of Season 3 are in my opinion some of the best episodes of the series. After that the 4th and 5th seasons while very good and had some of my favorite episodes of the series also featured some of the weaker ones as well, but I still liked both those seasons as a whole more than the first and 2nd. Season 4 & 5 are excellent they just lacked slightly despite being every bit as good as the previous seasons. The best way to put it I suppose is Seasons 4 & 5 had some of the best episodes, and a few that were excellent that just fell slightly short of greatness and a few sub-par episodes. But again I loved both those seasons and liked them more than the first 2 Seasons, which were also great.

But Season 6 of Monk really gets things back on track and features some of the very best episodes of the series. Each season of Monk has that one or 2 episodes that are sort of duds.

This is by far one of the best seasons of this incredibly awesome series to date! Adrian Monk (Tony Shaloub) continues to use his Sherlock Holmes-like abilities to solve interesting and often complex murder cases. His sharp eyes for detail and his deductive reasoning still continue to intrique his colleagues, his beautiful and long-suffering assistant, Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard), the straight-laced Captain Leland Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine), and the always eager-to-please Lieutenant Randy Disher (Jason-Gray Stanford).

As the season opens, we see the defective detective being pursued once again by his overly-obsessed fan, Marci Maven (special guest star Sarah Silverman). This time, she needs Adrian's help in clearing her dog of a murder charge. Next, special guest star Snoop Dogg potrays a successful rap artist who needs Monk's help in clearing his name after he is accussed of killing a rival. As the season progresses, we continue to get an array of interesting mysteries, which include a murder at a nude beach, a shot Santa Claus, a possibly murderous girlfriend, and a cult that has more going than they let on. The season ends with the best season finale for this show and two of the best episodes ever! In this 2 parter, Monk is accussed of a murder and must quickly find the evidence that will prove his innonce. Ever since I got into this series, I had hoped for an episode like this. It's a beautiful mix of comedy, drama, and suspense, as the entire series has been.

By now, all of you Monk fans probably know that next season, the 8th overall, will be the last one. I will surely miss "Monk" when it is over. It is one of the best shows to come on television in a while. For all Monk fans out there, owning Season 6 is a must (along with all the other seasons).
