USA (ended 2009)
|i am just starting to watch the show so can anybody tell me if monk and natalie are together as a couple or if they ever will be or better the name of the episode where they get together please.|
NO! i think thats would ruin the show for me I hate that type of thing with Monk/Natalie its annoying and it will never happen so dont hope for it
|I like natalie best. She seems to actulally care about monk, sherona treated it more just like a job, natalie seems to see him as more of a friend. Also we get to see them from the very beganning when they first met, sherona was already situated with monk when the show started.|
agreed sharona also dresses liek a hooker
I like Natalie.
I agree with some of the comments that said about how Natalie was more sympathetic to Monk's issues than Sharona seemed to be.
Also, regarding Sharona calling Monk "Adrian" and Natalie called Monk "Mr. Monk", I think part of it has to do with the fact that Sharona started as Monk's nurse and then became his assistant. So obviously a nurse would refer to a patient by their first name. However, when Natalie first met Monk, it was as an investigator, and then he hired her, so it's a little more formal. I don't think it's entirely strange. I know some people that once they refer to someone in a particular way, it's hard to break the habit.
|I've been watching the show since the first episode, and I definitely prefer Sharona. Natalie is just too transparent and lacks substance. Natalie can be funny sometimes, but she doesn't have the same amount of character that Sharona had. Also, Sharona had better chemistry with Monk.|
Agreed. I like them both, but htey are entirely two different charcters. That being said. I have to go with MY SHARONA! (Surprised no one did that).\
She was edgy, spunky, funny, and they had wonderful chemistry. I LOVED the way she used to say ADRIAN! Lol, she was his nurse and his friend and they had a deep connection.
Natalie is cool, and she grew on me . I really didn't like her at first. Her personality is a bit dull at times. Sharona stood out more and I loved how she was so cool with Stotlemyer and Randy. I just loved her attitude.
|I agree with some of the comments that said about how Natalie was more sympathetic to Monk's issues than Sharona seemed to be.|
I think a lot of people on this board confuse sympathy with coddling. Sharona wasn't unsympathetic towards Monk. In fact she constantly defended him from others. She simply did not coddle him either. And as his nurse that is understandable. The worst thing you can do to someone in Monk's position is cater to their fears (something Sharona never did for Monk but Natalie always does). In the long run, the way Sharona treated Monk is much much healthier for him from a medical perspective. All Natalie's actions do are is encourage his disorder.
As I've said before, I prefer Sharona. Her brother/sister relationship with Monk gave a lot more heart to the show than Natalie's Employer/Employee relationship
