    why is there no 3rd option?

    There is not one I can say I like better because both of them have strong and weak points

    I don't know I didn't make the topic and I just thought I would bring back the original topic

    I agree. Sharona was more protective. Natalie is kind of a dunce. Sharona was much more of an asset to Monk.

    I've never liked Traylor Howard in anything she's done.

    Right now, I give it to Sharona. But if the writers begin to write episodes for Natalie like they did when she was first introduced, I can easily vote for Natalie. But if they continue to write Natalie's part like they have this season, where all I see of Natalie is just Mr. Monk's assistant, than Sharona, who was much more than that, will continue to have my vote.

    Natalie is much better for Monk.

    Natalie is more.. supportive.

    Sharona was just mean and rude most of the time.

    I prefer Natalie.

    All right, as I've said before, Sharona is better. Now let me tell you a few things. Bitty Schram was fired off the show because she wanted more screen time and money which she deserved for Sharona is more like a co-star who should share the billing with Shaloub.That's because Monk needs a good foil in order to work which Sharona was and Natalie isn't. If you didn't notice, in the third season, for the most part Sharona was pushed into the background as more "Monk moments" were produced and the writing focused on the OCD instead of the mystery and chemistry of the characters. About Sharona, she was spicy, energetic, critical, but faithful and supportive too with her wide range of emotions. We got to know her and the chemistry between Monk and her was excellent. May I keep saying, she stuck up for him, but still treated him like an adult knowing when to put the kid gloves on. Natalie on the other hand is a Sharona knockoff at best which she rarely comes close to, at worst where she's most often at, she's whiny, flat, nasty, cruel, and delivers all her lines in the same dry and sugary tone treating Monk like her baby brother. I don't know about you, but I perfer Sharona for she gives Monk the chance to work on his phobias while Natalie keeps pushing him down. Oh, brother and she gets more screen time too! There's just no justice in this world today!

    Beg to differ. No way Natalie was better FOR Monk. Sharona was harsh at times, but that is because she is his nurse. When you are dealing with OCD you cannot cater to their phobias or their condition will only worsen.

    I like them both.

    Maybe I liked Sharona because I liked the actress when she was in A League of her Own and Tom Hanks yelled at her "THERE IS NO CRYING IN BASEBALL!!!" That was classic. So maybe that's why I can't dislike Sharona. Actually I missed her when Natalie started. IMO Natalie wasn't very understanding in the beginning. As each episode went on and she had been getting more air time I really like her and her daughter.

    I chose Natalie-Sharona was fun, but Natalie had more charisma, she was more three-dimensional than the Yankee-accented blond in my opinion.

    I'm split - I loved Sharona's character, it was so unique and more interesting. But Natalie was more nurturing, so I'm not sure.
