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!

Recently, I went through and purchased every season of Monk. So worth it.
However, even I'll admit that season three has the the weakest episodes of the entire Monk series, notably because of the behind-the-scenes issues (actors, producers, network).
Season three is also, sadly, where Sharona departs mid-season (ah, darn.), and we have to adjust to Natalie. I admit, it took me a few seasons to get used to her. To this day, if I happen upon a Monk conversation with a stranger, they always say something about how it was too bad that the character of Sharona was cut.
It's still worth purchasing if you're completing your collection, or buying some seasons as a gift for a Monk fan, or a fan of the murder-mystery genre.
Mr. Monk is attempting to navigate through the unspeakable tragedy of the horrific death of his beloved wife, Trudy. The phobias he experienced as a young man growing up in San Francisco seemed to be under control thanks to his remarkable spouse, but suddenly bubbled back to the surface and completely overtook his life that December 1997 day, so much so that his best friend, Captain Leland Stottlemeyer, was forced to discharge Monk from the SFPD.
Season three marks a pivotal turning point for Monk after his loyal nurse and assistant, Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram) returned to her native New Jersey. Not only was Monk's universe about to collapse inward upon him, the show was on the ledge as well.
Enter Natalie Teeger. Ms. Teeger, a military widow who is mother to brilliant 12-year old Julie, stops a home invasion by stabbing the intruder with a pair of scissors. Monk is then hired by Captain Stottlemeyer to clear Natalie of any criminal wrongdoing. During the course of the investigation, Natalie and Julie become fascinated with the "defective detective", and the Teegers are even more awed when Mr. Monk saves Julie's goldfish at the expense of a very valuable moon rock during a science fair.
Traylor Howard's arrival not only saved Monk, but it sent the show soaring to new heights. If you haven't watched Monk yet, watch season three. You'll soon want to watch the other seven seasons.
It also has "Mr. Monk and the Kid." which is probably the best Monk episode I have seen. Check out that episode even if you see none of the others.
I bought this season while it was on sale for $5. I love Monk and I am so happy I found a high quality streaming option.
However, I would not pay the normal price for the separate seasons when I could purchase the entire series on DVD for $70. For me personally, the convenience is not worth the amount they are asking.
While there are re-runs of the program, I have been buying the Season DVDs because I want to be sure that I can always watch an episode of Monk.
