Two monks for the price of one. A different and welcome change from the usual Monk style, with a problem for Monk! The PD is cuting back and wont hire him. What to do?
While visiting Natalies "rich" parents the suspicious deaths of their neighbours proves to much of a lure and they investigate. While their he mistakening is interviewed by the son of the death couple who inherited, and is taken on as a butler! What started as undercover work changes as Monk shows a natural application for the role!
The middle act is focused more on amusing and extruciating painful (for the staff) scenes littered with a few clues to explain the story of what happened (as we already know who the murder is)!
The scenes with a "pregnant" Natalie and the family dinner are great and lead to a very tense ending, which endings in a suitable Monk way as Stolemeyer gets his man back!
Watch just to see a brilliant performance by Sean "Sam" Astin.
