    Format: DVD
    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.

    And the first and second seasons of "Monk" succeeds in bringing an odd twist to the traditional detective TV show. 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 and had to leave the police force. 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) 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.

    The cases that follow are no less confounding -- Monk must deal with a supposed psychic, a grotesquely obese financier who is unable to get out of bed, a stabbing on a Ferris wheel, a murder in an asylum, a billionaire mugger, a marathon alibi, a vacation gone wrong, an earthquake, a date, a murderous Frenchman, and a murder seemingly committed by Willie Nelson.

    And in the second season, Monk takes a temp job at a prestigious school to see if a teacher's suicide was actually a murder -- especially since the only suspect has a watertight alibi.

    In another review I mentioned how much I appreciate individuals who bring laughter into my life. Well, my admiration for Andy Breckman and his staff of writers knows no bounds. In addition, my admiration for Tony Shalhoub is equally unbounded. The marriage of excellent writing with excellent acting makes this television show my favorite of all time. I have never enjoyed a television show more! Now I'd like to go to season one.

    I think the series starts out strong right off the bat. The characters are pretty well developed from the very first show. I do think Captain Stottlemeyer's character (played so beautifully and subtly by Ted Levine) does change a bit from the first episode. He is a little gruff in the first episode, but develops into the long-suffering-cop-with-a-good-heart-who-wants-to-do-right-by-everybody character that I have come to love on the show. In fact, my wife and I have often commented to each other how much we enjoy Ted Levine's portrayal of Captain Stottlemeyer. I think any television show has to have supporting characters that the audience cares about. All of the supporting actors on this show are terrific!

    A big part of the show's appeal is the fact that the viewer probably sees that he or she shares some of Monk's phobias. In episode one, "Mr. Monk and the Candidate", Monk is concerned that he didn't turn off his stove. He probably checked it a hundred times. I can identify with that one. Episode six, "Mr. Monk and the Billionaire Mugger", is an example of excellent writing that has some odd twists and turns in the plot. Episode eleven, "Mr. Monk and the Red-Headed Stranger", is an example of the sensitive side of the ongoing storyline about Monk's deceased wife Trudy. Willie Nelson and Mr. Monk have a touching moment concerning Trudy.

    We recently discovered Monk in reruns, and realized we missed out on seven seasons of this great show. It is a thinking persons show, with well rounded characters. It is at the same time funny, quirky, thoughtful and tragic. It is the kind of quality writing in a show that is seldom seen. We purchased these DVDS (and seasons 3 & 4) to catch up with the show before it's final season premieres in August. I would highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys a good mystery and doesn't mind thinking while watching tv.
