For twelve years, Adrian Monk has been hunting his wife's killer, struggling with his phobias and compulsions, and solving plenty of crimes.

But now his lonely quest is finally ending. "Monk Season Eight" is a brilliant finale for the long-running detective series -- the writers have a whole season to wrap up plot threads, sketch out futures for the beloved characters, and introduce a final round of bizarre crimes that only the OCD detective can solve. And of course, they finally address the main mystery: who killed Monk's wife, and why?

First, Monk (Tony Shalhoub) is hired by a former child star who starred in his favorite sitcom, "The Cooper Clan" -- and the reality might tarnish his favorite show. Among his other problems: voodoo dolls, UFOs, a Nigerian man whose wife was killed in a hit-and-run, camping trips with surly small boys, birthday parties, the murders of Dr Bell's new therapy group, a snobby theatre critic who apparently murdered someone while he was watching Julie's play, a dog Monk reluctantly adopts, and even the possible destruction of a good friend's wedding.

A familiar face returns to San Francisco when Sharona (Bitty Schram) comes back to deal with her late uncle's legal issues, but Monk suspects foul play. And Monk's longstanding dream of rejoining the police force is realized, but turns out to be... less than ideal. Finally, his ongoing investigation into Trudy's death twelve years ago takes a deadly turn -- not only is someone trying to kill him now, but an old secret from years ago reveals the truth...

The writers and the cast outdid themselves for the final season. The plot lines were fresh, witty, and hilarious. There are some big surprises in the eighth season -- not just in the individual episodes ("Happy Birthday, Mr. Monk" contains a big surprise, which I won't divulge), but throughout the season, the characters -- Stottlemeyer, Disher, and Natalie -- develop in some surprising ways that are satisfying to watch.

But it's Mr. Monk who really steals the show.

Tony Shaloub's acting as he breathes life into the neurotic Mr. Monk is always a delight to watch, over and over. And each season includes one or two virtuoso cadenzas to showcase Shaloub's talent, lest we start thinking that Shaloub and Adrian Monk are actually one in the same. For instance, in "Mr. Monk Takes His Medicine" (Season Three), Monk's new medication turns him into a completely different person, with hilarious results. ("You can't rush 'The Monk.'" "You're bringing 'The Monk' down, man.") And my personal favorite, which my wife and I have watched many, many times, "Mr Monk Goes to the Theater" (Season Two), in which we see Monk in a play within a play, where he gives a remarkably fine performance portraying a totally different character -- as long as no one is watching. In front of the audience, he becomes the painfully self-conscious Adrian Monk, stumbling over his lines. ("A man can't count on 'used to be' the way he's ... supposed to.")

The eighth season continues this tradition brilliantly with the episode, "Mr. Monk is Someone Else," in which Shaloub plays a character totally unlike Monk, as well as Monk, as well as Monk playing a character totally unlike Monk, to hilarious effect.

In "Mr.

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!

This Is A very touching show, showing the empowering affect the right woman can have on a man; And what the loss of that connection can do. It is the first half of a 2 part series finale. Anyone who had trouble with the series and its direction would be hard pressed not to get drawn into this the final installment of a moving and entertaining production.

So many TV series have unconclusive 'maybe there will be another season' endings - Monk doesn't. There is room for another season, but almost everything is wrapped up beautifully.
I won't spoil it for you; I'll just say that Monk solves Trudy's murder, we see Sharona again, and we get to see most of the major characters developed more; they persue their dreams and many of them find new love interests.
Love the show, and the ending is one of my favorite episodes! You won't be disapointed! My only complaint is that I would have liked to have seen Monk's brother, Ambrose, in the show. All the episodes are great and funny.
