Miss Monk So Much!
7 May 2020 | by RobScott-13See all my reviews

I didn't start watching Monk until it was almost off the air but heard such good things about it that I finally thought I'd gave it a chance. So glad I did because it quickly became one of my favorite comedies/who did it shows I've ever seen! It is the perfect blend of comedy and mystery. Even though Tony Shalhoub won a ton of awards for his work as Monk, including numerous Emmy & Golden Globe awards, he still is such an underrated actor who was perfect in this as Monk! I miss this great show so much!
