I remember there being a big push for this show on USA/ABC and then I haven't heard anything since the beginning of the year. Is it dead? I think Tony Shaloub is great. Thanks.
ditch the bland Randy Newman song...there was nothing wrong with the original theme music.Hey, I figure that's a pretty good Randy Newman song. Maybe not good enough to be on "Bad Love" or "Good Old Boys", but it fits the show and is entertaining in its own right. Besides, wasn't there just a thread about how the theme song was a lost art.
Anyone else notice that Ron Underwood directed the episode? Not that it was a particularly outstanding job of direction or anything, just worth noticing that the budget has apparently increased during the second season with the move to LA.
(Or that Pluto Nash knocked Underwood's career back fifteen years, to where it was pre-Tremors)
The show's been said to be making fun of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but it actually shows it in a positive light, Monk uses his disorder to solve crimes and help people. That couldn't be more positive IMO.Not only that, it shows him working to overcome his disorder when necessary. And when you have so much affection for the character, t's hard to laugh at him. More a type of gentle laughing in sympathy with him.
