Well to be fair there were some entertaining moments in this episode, however just too thin a plot to rate it a winner in my book. Tony Shalhoub is really good as Monk as he battles his disbelief that a psychic could actually find the missing women in this case. Monk doesnt fail to keep your attention with all his little quirks and Tony Shalhoub does the best he can to carry the episode along. The police were too inept to be believed here, um, check the cell phone records, everyone does that. Even the solution to the case, um, entrapment, anyone?, wouldnt hold up in court.
Seemed like a flawed episode with a plot rehashed from any other detective show you would like to name here except it has Tony Shalhoub, and that is enough to keep me from being too hard on the rating here.
