This is a yawner. Some of it was for the first show in the last season they should have at least given us something well done. The writing was subpar, the comedy was worse, very little real Monk character except the obsessive.
If this what we have to look ahead to in the next 15 episodes they should have stopped a season or so ago.
What happened here? Where did the good scripts and comedy go? Maybe they should hire Monk to find it.
The rest of the cast just phoned it in, what a real disappointment. Some shows make recoveries after bad starts, Stargate Atlantis started off bad in the last season and finished strong, we can only hope that the writers read more blogs telling them to give us something good for a change.
