    I believe Monk was dropped from Netflix a couple of years ago. It is now on Prime which is pretty cool. I thought I had seen every episode but there are quite a few that I have missed.

    Anyway, my wife and I were talking about Adrian Monk and my 16 year old daughter overheard us talking about him and thought it was someone we knew. We told her it was a show and that she would probably like it. So I recorded an episode from Hallmark and she loved it!

    Saw it on Prime and told her the best way to watch it was start at the beginning. So far we are up to season 3 and watched episode 1 last night (Monk goes to NY).

    Even our 8 year old loves it! Looks like My Three Sons is close to winding down on MeTV as they have moved to California and we DVR that and watch in the afternoon. So now our daily ritual consists of watching that and an episode of Monk.

    My 16 year old keeps asking if he ever solved Trudy's murder and we just tell her "you have to wait and see!".

    I wish they would get the gang back together and do a reunion special.

    Monk was a show I watched on a "catch as catch can" basis when it was originally on, so I probably missed a lot of the story threads and other subtleties, but I still enjoyed it. I don't currently have Prime but one of these days I'll have to watch it from the beginning. Good show.

    Great show, and ended nicely as well.
    At first, I missed Sharona, but now I much more prefer Trudy. I always seem to see more cameos and guest appearances than I ever realized while watching it during it's first run.

    Yeah, I like Sharona a lot and I knew that she left and was replaced by Natalie. I don't quite remember why Sharona left and that episode will be coming up (she leaves mid season 3). In real life I know they couldn't come to contractual terms and she ended up leaving the show. I just didn't realize how many episodes I missed! I thought for sure I had seen them all and so far there's a ton I haven't seen. And yes, there are a ton of cameos and guests I forgot about.

    Not sure why I called Natalie by the wrong name. I loved Jan(Trudy) in The Office.

    I really enjoyed Monk during its original run, and thought they closed it out just at the right time.
    A little while back they started doing weekend marathons on WeTV (I think?) so I've been grabbing those on the DVR as they're great to watch while I do my workout every day.

    Hopefully you saw Tony Shalhoub on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, also on Prime. He's marvelous on it.

    I love Monk! Though my favorite from that USA lineup was Psych...

    Not yet -- but have been wanting to see it and plan on watching it in the future.

    Monk was one of my favorite shows; it's on one channel or another always running several episodes one right after the other. Tony Shaloub was brilliant in that show. Love it.

    I haven't gotten much done the last three Sundays because I end up watching Monk reruns.

    Just finished season 8 on Prime. What a great show! They wrapped it up just at the right time before all the ideas dried up. I had seen most of them before but didn't remember them or had forgotten about plots. My 2ife and kids enjoyed it as well, especially my 9 year old. She was sad for it to end. My kids would always ask "does he solve Trudy's murder?". I would always tell them they would have to wait and see and they are both glad I never gave away the ending.

    I recently saw Jason Gray-Standford on Travellers and when I see him it's not not to think of Disher. He seems to do a lot of one-off's (last season of X-Files and he was a cop "walker" on Walking Dead but I can't remember if it was the actual show or one of the webisodes they did during the first couple of seasons).

    I love how the tied everything up nice and neat at the end. It was hard for me to believe that Randy would have gotten that promotion though, given how “dumb” a lot of things he said and did was, but of course that was a nice and often hilarious part of the show so I wouldn’t have changed him at all, but clearly there would have been more qualified people. I also never thought Sharona and him were even close to friendly enough for them to end up the way they did in the end (trying not to give anything away). But aside from that, it is my families favorite show as well and I’m glad we have the box set as it seems to jump around and/or come and go a lot on streaming.

    They planned a movie in 2012 but for some reason it was shelved. Monk is long overdue for a TV movie.

    Are you aware that the makers of Monk did another 10 part show on Netflix called The Good Cop (2018)? It was cancelled. I liked it. Solid and very, very Monk-like. Without knowing it was made by the Monk people I instantly said to myself, 'This was probably made by the people who did Monk.'
