Critic Reviews for Monk: Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (5)

Shalhoub is the master at shading this quirky character with the uncommon combination of vulnerability, dignity and intelligence.

September 10, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

As I enjoyed this mystery series' second-season premiere, I recalled the satisfying feeling of watching Columbo in its prime.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

The comedy here has more than a hint of pathos.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Shalhoub and Schram's chemistry goes a long way in covering up the conventional plots and cases that close with a too-satisfying click. Both are outstanding, a tribute to their acting as well as the characters created for them.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Monk's charm isn't the debonair, sweep-you-off-your-feet kind... Its comedy and its drama are more genuine and more piercing than that. It's the real thing.

September 10, 2018 | Full Review…

To adore Monk is to adore Tony Shalhoub, a leading man like no other who has carried this USA fave through some of the most ridiculous plot resolutions TV has seen in some time
