Monk: Season 8 (2009)




Critic Consensus: Monk wisely closes the curtain just as the formula begins to grow tiresome, delivering a predictable conclusion that will still hearten fans of San Francisco's finest germaphobe.

Tv Season Info

In the eighth and final season, Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) continues to work with the Homicide Division of the San Francisco Police Department. His cases involve a murder related to a UFO sighting, victims who receive voodoo dolls before their deaths, guarding a former child star and rejoining the police force. Monk's former assistant, Sharona Fleming (Bitty Schram), returns to San Francisco, and he finds himself torn between her and his current assistant, Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard). Dr. Neven Bell (Héctor Elizondo) continues to help Monk with his OCPD and numerous phobias, especially when they threaten to derail his investigative abilities. And Monk makes a breakthrough in finding his wife's murder. Guest stars include Eric Stonestreet, Meat Loaf, Teri Polo, Jack Wagner and Craig T. Nelson as "The Judge."

It's the TV equivalent of comfort food, and there aren't many shows you can say that about anymore. Now there's one less.

The performance that Tony Shalhoub gave as a close-to-death Monk was simply amazing.

Monk slowly evolved from a tightly-constructed mystery show into a more entertaining character study.

Everything neatly wrapped up - just like Monk folding his laundry.

I won't miss Monk all that terribly, but I will miss knowing that the show was out there, creating a safe haven for people who just wanted a few smiles on a Friday night.
