  • Monk goes underwater in a submarine.

    "I'm not even sure I know how to swim. I did some lessons once, but not in water."

    Not a great episode of Monk, but it was certainly an entertaining one. Tony Shaloub completely escaped into his character and his comedy was top-notch this week. I loved the ongoing bit with him thinking he could see his therapist.

    Traylor Howard is starting to grow on me as well. She complements Monk well, and her Natalie character is both funny and does a good job of advancing the story.

    This was a well-written episode that moved at a fairly reasonable pace. Some of the scenes were not really needed and I could have done without the forced romance between Natalie and the navy officer. Still, the pros outweighed the cons and this turned into a decent episode of Monk.
