Nine years on the air and Monk is still the gold standard for comedy. After a great episode last week we get one equally as entertaining this week. Featuring a great line of comedy veteran guest stars including Bradley Whitford (Billy Madison, The West Wing), Pamela Adlon (Californication) and Michael G. Haggerty (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and another fresh storyline this was as funny as an hour long show could possibly be.
Supporting cast Ted Levine and Traylor Howard shined here, but it was the Emmy-winning star Tony Shalhoub who made this such a great installment. His antics are as good as ever, his phobias as entertaining as ever and he's just more in character than anybody else on TV. His flawless execution of Adrian Monk is truly a sight to watch.
