  • Monk scores a touchdown.

    Being a big sports fan i really liked this episode.It had a bit of everything.It had funny dialogues,a good mystery to solve and for brief periods it touched upon some of Monk's issues.Oh and it had Bob Costas obsessed with demented cats!We have seen this type of Monk episode before.They mostly take place at one outdoor scene and usually Adrian is really uncomfortable with his surroundings.I really liked his line to Leland about civilization.Another funny scene was the football team's prayer!The episode also had some good interaction between Adrian and the captain.In a sense they were both right.Leland told Adrian what he had to hear at some point concerning Trudy but Monk can't switch off his detective instincts just like that.It's what makes him so unique.So Monk came off really strong by the end of the episode,because his will to chase a weird looking case payed off and he got Leland around his way of thinking. The four characters were divided into two groups this week.We saw a lot of Monk and the captain but not so much of Randy and Natalie.However their short story in this was also very amusing.Randy in particular was very funny with his strange way of watching the game and Natalie's final line was funny as well.All in all a solid Monk episode.
