The end of our beloved monk series,
This review is from: Monk: Season 8 (DVD)
WoW! I worried; I almost didn't want to see the very last installment. What were the writers going to do? Would they be out of ideas; would they disappoint us; had they gone stale; would they wrap things in cliches and unbelievable tidiness?
What writing! That was the best ending to a long-standing series that I have ever seen. The writing was superb. It could not have been any better. They brought in everyone; wrapped up everything in so funny, touching, believable, and perfect a way, that we, the fans, were almost okay with letting him go. There were so many things I was afraid they were going to do - and they didn't. I think I watched the 2 ending shows 3 times, as I watched it with various family members who hadn't seen it yet. Everyone had the same reaction - wet eyes (even some of the guys!) and a kind of warm glow as you turned off the tv and told Monk good-bye. - Perfect!

I agree. It was the perfect sendoff for Monk, and you summed it up beautifully.

So many great TV series end badly, if they even get a chance to wrap them up properly. I was afraid they would ruin the last episode with this series too, but apparently the writers liked the show as much as the fans. BIG, BIG Kudos to them! :)
