  • Monk is Monk and does his thing as usual.

    This episode pretty much followed Monk's daily routine of how he copes with life, but as with the last episode, I figured it out long before its conclusion. The writers may be getting a little lax or just running out of ideas. In the last few seconds of the story, the writers missed a good opportunity to show even the smallest improvement in Monk's condition. He even said during the show that he has been trying for 11 years to get better, but as I said the writers didn't give him a chance. What should have happened as Monk looked out the window at the birds was for him to smile and then walk away. At least that would show a glimmer of hope for him. We understand he can't be completely cured since that would destroy the premise of the show, but at least give him a little dignity. I guess he is confined to just being Monk and that is getting mighty tiresome.
