Product Description

It's time to tidy up for another season with Primetime Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub in all 16 Season Five episodes of Monk, television's most fresh and funny series. Gumshoe Adrian Monk would never actually have gum on his well-polished shoes: in addition to intellect and instinct, he also has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Though his eccentric traits bewilder his colleagues Natalie Teeger (Traylor Howard), Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and Lieutenant Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford), Monk's attention to detail keeps crime—and grime—off the streets. Included in this highly collectible, 4-disc set are both the black & white and color versions of the noir-style episode "Mr. Monk and the Leper," obsessively good bonus features and the pilot episode of the hit comedy-drama Psych. Follow the clues to Season Five of Monk, the quirky and original show TV Guide hails as "alternatively hilarious and touching."

Format: DVD
Most cult TV dies pretty quickly, but Adrian Monk has been charming viewers with his quirky detecting for five seasons now. The fifth season occasionally crosses the line into cartoonishness, but overall it's still an entertaining, amusing little detective show... with the world's only OCD detective.

In the opening episode, a movie is going to be made about Monk's (Tony Shalhoub) life and amazing abilities, with well-known actor David Ruskin (Stanley Tucci) as Monk. But Ruskin turns out to be the world's best method actor, as he observes Monk doing his detective work -- and starts to acquire Monk's OCD and personality. Sometimes acting can be TOO good.

But Monk's problems don't cease when he's paralyzed by a garbage strike, and the strike leader is murdered. Other cases include a mysterious electrocution in a gym shower, being blinded by a murderer, a stint as a private eye, a college reunion, a disastrous rock concert, a leper, posing as a butler, a radio host whose wife died while he was on the air, and he competes against technology to find a serial killer.

On the personal front, Monk gets reacquainted with his father, who left the family when he was a child, and he also tries to deal with Dr. Kroger's early retirement, by solving the crime that prompted him to leave. And he helps Randy (Jason Gray-Stanford ) out when the latter inherits a farm -- and a mysterious death.

The fifth season does sag a little in the middle -- the retirement and rocker episodes have Monk's OCD becoming almost cartoonishly comic. But most of the rest of the episodes are quite good, with the typical unsolvable cases, unbreakable alibis, and inexplicable phobias from poor Monk.

If I had to chose between Poirot, Columbo, Sherlock Holmes and all of the other sleuths, Adrian Monk would be the one I would pick as the funniest and most tragic. His clever observations are clearly on par with all the greats, but his phobias and foibles set him apart.

The fifth season of Monk is just as excellent as the previous seasons. I've watched the episodes many times. The comic timing is right on and the writing is very good. The episodes never drag on and things are anything but boring. For sensitive viewers: there's not a lot of gore, very little swearing or gratuitous sex.

Mr. Monk and the Garbage Strike is my favourite episode in this collection but Monk also meets his father, obtains a new psychiatrist, visits a farm, suffers temporary blindness, attends a rock concert, gets a new best friend, goes undercover as a butler and becomes a patient in the hospital.

This 4 disc collection includes 17 one-hour episodes, commentary from cast and crew, webisodes and the "Psych" pilot.

I think that as the 5th and further seasons came on, I started getting irritated with the amount of time wasted on Monk's quirks. Re-editing the shows into 30 minute segments without the weirdness would make the seasons perfect. Still worth having in the collection.
