  • Monk has to pass a fitness test and solves a boxing murder.

    This was just a terrible episode. Instead of trying to solve anything or for that matter us trying to solve anything we are given the bomber's identity through obvious DNA. The whole episode is trying to stop him before he strikes again. Monk at the fitness test contained no humor and him rearranging the hurdles is one of those things that happens in every episode and is just plain old. It was rather predictable that Monk would end up on the floor with the boxer which I think is just too extreme and unrealistic, especially because he was only bothered by the sweat a tiny bit. Natalie didn't have too much to do and Stottlemeyer and Disher had just the right amount of screen time. Overall is was a disapointment especially after a 12 hour marathon leading up to it. If you get the chance to watch it, I suggest you don't.
