4.0 out of 5 stars inconsistency with Mr. Monk's character, May 21, 2008
By 
This review is from: Mr. Monk in Outer Space (Hardcover)
In this novel, Mr. Monk is very afraid of revolving door.

However in episode 4-10 "Mr. Monk Goes to a Fashion Show", Mr. Monk and Natalie ran through a revolving door into a fashion show.

Also in episode 3-1 "Mr. Monk Takes Manhattan", Mr. Monk went through a revolving door when he and Sharona left their hotel at the end of the story.

Maybe also in episode 1-8 "Mr. Monk and the Marathon Man", when Mr. Monk and Sharona left Tonday's hotel, they went through a revolving door. (I can't remember this one clearly.)

Anyway, this is inconsistency between the TV character and the novel's.

P.S.
Since we are on this subject, just point out other inconsistencies I've noticed in the TV episodes (sorry I didn't bring my list with me, a lot more):
1.
In "Mr. Monk Goes to the Carnival", Mr. Monk guessed the number of Jelly beans in the jar. He noticed 6 Jelly bean boxes in the trash earlier, each of which was used to pack 1400 beans. So there were 8400 beans going into the jar. As an approximation, he told Benji to guess the number 8385, reasoning that someone could have eaten a dozen.

This number 8385 wasn't rounded to 10, which Mr. Monk is obsessed with. I remember he used to buy 10 eggs, instead of a dozen from the store. It is not even an even number, which represents symmetry that is also important to Mr. Monk.

So it is barely a number that real Mr. Monk would have told Benji to guess.

2.
In episode 2-1 "Mr. Monk Goes Back to School", there is something written on the blackboard. As Mr. Monk left the classroom, he noticed that the "i" in the word "Reminder" wasn't dotted. So he dotted the "i".

But the "i" in the word "Quiz" was also not dotted. He missed that one.

Such is a mistake the real Mr. Monk will never commit.
