Editorial Reviews

The critically acclaimed Emmy and Golden Globe winning MONK finally gave talented character actor Tony Shalhoub a chance to shine. Shalhoub's performance as the mentally unstable title character contains just the right mix of pathos and perfect comic timing earning him an Emmy and a Golden Globe for the role. Adrian Monk (Shalhoub) is San Francisco's most brilliant detective but is unable to serve on the police force because of his crippling neuroses and obsessive-compulsive disorder. However he continues his investigations independently often solving cases before the actual police are able to do so and always seeking clues to the unsolved murder of his wife. The combination of comedy mystery and a distinctively eccentric character has led many to dub MONK the successor to COLUMBO. This collection includes every episode from seasons one through four of the series.System Requirements:Running Time 123 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE Genre: TELEVISION/SERIES & SEQUELS Rating: NR UPC: 025192669026 Manufacturer No: 26690

    By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 21, 2006
    Sherlock Holmes, Columbo, Hercule Poirot -- genius detectives are usually a bit quirky. But no other is as quirky as Adrian Monk, the obsessive-compulsive detective.

    "Monk: The Obsessive Compulsive Collection" compiles the first four seasons of this funny, likable little mystery series. Tony Shalhoub shines as everyone's favorite obsessive-compulsive detective, solving the case with his gift/curse and his willingness to go anywhere... that doesn't have germs.

    Adrian Monk's wife Trudy was killed in a car-bombing, and the devastated detective fell apart completely. Years later, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is partially recovered, but he still is obsessive-compulsive and has dozens of phobias. The only way he manages is with his assistant Sharona (Bitty Schram) -- and later her successor Natalie (Traylor Howard) -- babysitting him.

    When a politician is nearly killed in a mystery shooting, the police are baffled. So Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) reluctantly calls in his old pal to solve the case. From then on, Monk is called in for dozens of bizarre, baffling cases. His excellent memory and his OCD ("It's a gift.... and a curse") allow him to see patterns and details where other people see nothing.

    Among Monk's cases are going undercover at a prison, a killer dentist, a deadly Christmas gift, an elephant used as a lethal weapon, a billionaire mugger, saving Willie Nelson from a murder rap, trapping a black widow, the death of a 115-year-old man, the Mafia, martial-artists, murdered models, and a guy who leaped out of a plane -- and died by drowning.

    But as quirky and bizarre as the cases is, it never stops hitting the heartstrings. Monk is still passionately devoted to his dead wife; in the whole series, he goes on two dates (both disastrous).

    Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is a former San Francisco police detective. He's suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder and multiple phobias his entire life. However, after the murder of his wife, he got so bad he couldn't face the world. That's when Sharona (Bitty Schram) entered his life. She's a nurse who helps him deal with the world around him. With her help, he begins to face the world again. Since being a detective is all he knows, he assists his former partner Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and Lt. Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford) solve their most puzzling crimes.

    And they regularly seem to have some pretty puzzling cases. Why was a millionaire shot while mugging someone? How did an 800-pound man commit murder? How did a man send a letter bomb while in a coma? Why are the members of a jury being killed? Is a martial arts star alive or dead? Did a monkey commit murder? Who killed the pizza delivery guy? How did an astronaut commit murder from space?

    And did I mention this show is a comedy? Along with a great puzzle, you also get plenty of laughs. Each week, Monk must deal with some quirk in order to solve the case. Maybe it's the little things, like straightening a stack of papers while fleeing a burning building, or something bigger like chasing a criminal through the sewer.

    But there is a balance to the show. While we might be laughing at Monk in one scene, we're sympathizing with him the next. This is a real person, brought to life expertly by three-time Emmy winner Tony Shalhoub. And he's deserved all three wins for this role. He's supported by the rest of the cast, who also shine every week.

    Along the way, Sharona left, to be replaced by Natalie (Traylor Howard).

    Beware of multiseries on amazon, for some reason lots of them with no extra features then the single seasons are 40-60$ more expensive then if you buy the seasons separately.

    That said monk is great

    We love Monk but could not consisteintly catch his show. We have never invested in a tv series before, but this one is worth it. We try to watch an episode when we are both available which is usually at mealtimes. Each dvd has bonus features. Season five comes out soon. This is one series I hope runs a long time.

    This show was so awesome - you can watch these episodes over and over and not get tired of the story - and notice more details and quirks of Monk or the other characters with each time you watch. Hilarious and touching and entertaining mystery fare. These writers had it going on when they wrote this show - the character of Monk is like "everyman" - he represents in hyperbole the fears and insecurities that are the human condition. But the reason i LOVE this show is that it is not just a laughable picture of neurosis - every episode is a hopeful story of prevailing in spite of our weaknesses (not prevailing over weakness...because his weaknesses remain.) but prevailing in spite of them because he always wins anyway. In spite of himself. It's an awesome message. A very positive show in that way - a huge message of underdog hope. It's one of the most refreshing and entertaining shows that this era of TV has produced. I WISH these writers would put together another show. I don't think they could fail! Great writing, great (great) acting. I will always love Tony Shalhoub because of Monk!
