  • Good episode.

    After an okay, but not mind-blowing, start to the final season of Monk we got a really good episode tonight. It was a throwback to the old days with a big name guest star coming in and having a really fun appearance. Jay Mohr (Gary Unmarried, Saturday Night Live) was excellent as an arrogant attorney, and it's a role I'd like to see him play again in the future on a legal program. His line after Natalie asked him how he sleeps at night and he responded, "Like a baby, in a very expensive bed, thanks for asking" was pure genius.

    Let's hope they can follow up on this momentum next week with another strong episode.
