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.

Here's to you Mr. Monk, a small and steady light on an often blinding, hyperkinetic screen. In your own quiet way, you have changed our lives and you will be missed.

Like a great old band going for one final tour, the final season of Monk promises to play all the greatest hits and go out on a high note.

Sep 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

So, in its final season, Monk stays close to the formula that made it successful, offering more of the same.

The finale summed up the reasons why lots of people loved this series, and why I and other people thought it had all become repetitive and silly.
