USA (ended 2009)
|So I can't seem to find anyone else who has noticed this in the treads. But Monk graduated college in 1981. He met Trudy while in college. This is stated in the episode where he goes to his class reunion. The whole reunion he kept saying he was referred to "as the guy with Trudy" However Trudy's pregnancy happens in 1982-1983. She says in the video it was years before she met Monk, but that's impossible. This is driving me nuts! Did anyone else catch it?|
|I vote for at least one Monk movie per year. Saying goodbye to Monk was like saying goodbye to a family member.|
Overall, it was a nice ending. But my problem with it, was that it was just WAY too complicated for it's own good. It worked out okay, but I really felt it would have just gone better had it been Trudy simply found out something that could jeopardize the Judge (since she is a reporter), so he had her killed.
But that's just me.
I wasn't a huge fan of this ending episode, overall. The biggest reason for my disappointment is simply the weight of the show itself. We had this big story arc about Trudy's murder, and the little clues here and there, and you don't really get anything out of knowing about Dale the Whale, the six-fingered man, or Warrick Tennyson. It's all pretty much summed-up in this two-parter. It decreases the significance of those previously-significant events.
As a rule, I'm not really a fan of finales that damage the integrity of what came before them, when I liked what came before them (I'm sure fans of St. Elsewhere or Roseanne can agree; I didn't watch either of those shows but am familiar with the endings).
A fantastic show whose ending just couldn't live up to it.
i have one word for this final episode FANTASTIC it was gripping , well thought out the motive behind trudys death was not just a cop-out and was handly nicly , the reveal that trudys daughter was still alive was omg and the intract between adrain and trudys daughter was nice to see, i loved the stove bit because it was a referance to one of the very first things monk said in the first ever episode, overall it left with an uypset feeling because monk has ended but a happy feeling but the end was handled so well
but i admit i was surprised that dale the whale didnt come into it , and i do like the fact the killer was someone introdued in part 1 rather than one of the characters we have known since the begining it was interesting and well played out
also i know some people don't like the fact behind trudys killing just because of an affair but monk did then say it wasnt about the affair it was about the daugther overall i glad it is a simple motive than a overally coimplicated one granted it isn.t the best motive but oh well, still a great episode. Also did anyone feel abit let down the case to solving trudys murder was on monks self for 12 years and i am surprised considoring the huge deal she made about him not to open it he didnt get a little curious? , plus monk did show no anger for not opening the gift that would solve his wifes murder but tbh from the start of part one all he thought it was , was a digital watch , so for 12 yrs he kept it unopen thinking it was the watch and when he was near death he wanted to finally open it then being surprised it was a tape , i mean it not like for 12 yrs he knew it was the tape lol.
And even thought the judge was a sort of established bad guy (granted all we knew about him was his name and nothing else) it was odd that the writers didnt really use any of the clues from the prevoius seasons it felt like just a standard 2 part murder case but as trudys death but was still very awesome and i throughly enjoyed it XD
