    I chose Natalie, Sharona just didn't seem like a good assistant

    Sharona was more fun.

    but she was a crappy assistant who really didnt care after him.

    She was sort of irresponsible and sometimes ignored monk.


    Natalie definitely cares and understands more, and tries to teach Monk things about how he should behave.
    I like Natalie.

    Obviously, this topic strikes a nerve with most Monk fans, and will not die. But as Natalie appears in more and more episodes, her character is developing. Two seasons from now, she will have been in a big majority of the episodes. But some fans will still be wailing on about Sharona. Hey, she wasn't Emma Peel.

    I like Sharona, she was alright. But I think that Natalie is doing great, better then Sharona. Her character has really become alot better and I think will continue to do so. She seems so caring, and she seems to really understand why Monk is the way he is.

    Sharona wasnt as good as Natalie's character that is very clear to me.

    Not cause she is in more eps but she is more interesting and she is alot more like a sidekick to Monk than Sharona ever was.

    Sharona used to make me mad with the way she would always yell at Monk. She seemed to really resent him and resent working for him.

    Natalie is much nicer and sweeter. She gets annoyed with him, but generally respects and cares about him.

    I liked Sharona a lot. I really missed her when she left. But now I love Natalie. She's so nice and it shows that she cares about other people, not just Monk, a lot.

    Natalie is a treasure. Sharona was played very well, but her character became too harsh for my taste. Natalie is strong, smart, patient, and cute. I take that over brashness and insensitivity in anyone, especially someone taking care of our Mr. Monk.

    I'm a Natalie fan. She's definitely the nicer of the two, and seems to be more sympathetic to Monk's problems. I think this is for two reasons - one, she lost her spouse as well so she knows how much it hurts. And two, she isn't as jaded as Sharona was by Monk's neurotic behavior. After all, didn't Sharona work with Monk for a few years before she left? Natalie's barely been there two years. Give her time and maybe she'll end up with a little of the Sharona spunk as well

    she wanted more money, and said she would leave if they didn't give it to her. There are also rumors that she was unbearable to work with and was incredibly rude to the other cast members.

    As for me i love Natalie. She is so much more professional but also a friend. Sharona just treated Adrian as a friend and was a whiny brat

    Totally Natalie. At first, I was furious at Sharona's departure. But, after the end of the first episode with Natalie, I was hooked. She rocks!

    I liked Sharona better. She was way more fun. But I don't hate Natalie, her daughter Julie is kind of annoying though.
