    It lacked Monk acting like himself. The whole thing about accepting the half brother, after he broke in? Monk is paranoid. I would think nothing short of a DNA test would satisfy him. It was an ok episode but nothing spectacular.

    Maybe it lacked the other characters, cause that's what it was for me. I didn't see much Natalie, Stottlemeyer or Disher and that's what ruined it for me. I mean, the episode was okay, but it seemed like another "Mr. Monk and the Game Show" where it's just Monk and an incidental character solving the case instead of Monk and the other characters.

    Odd episode. Monk remembered seeing a man's watch in the dead woman's apartment, yet he didn't notice the inscription? That doesn't seem like usual Monk behavior. And you would think they would interview the cell mate before he got killed, which, again, is a dead giveaway that a worker at the prison is the culprit.

    I agree, it was a little off but not that much and taking all in consideration it was a good eps.

    I agree that we didn't get to see much of the Disher or Natalie, but all the Steve Zahn scenes really made it up for me. He and Monk had a great back-and-forth, and I loved how Monk kept referring to him as "my pen pal Jack." I definitely found myself laughing a lot.

    I don't think there was anything wrong with it.
