Both Dee Dee and I have tried to analyze why we attempt to carve out a space for Monk in our Friday (Or the reprise on Saturday if Friday was impossible). We have come to the conclusion that Monk takes us back to shows from our childhood - like Murder She Wrote, Simon and Simon, Scarecrow and Mrs. Kane. Granted the show usually starts with a weird and gruesome murder, but after the introductory murder, it's all a clever and rather wholesome who done it. It's such a refreshing break from the onslaught of decapitated babies found floating in the river that seem to be such common fare for the Law and Order and CSI franchises which we admittedly watch.
In June, Monk prepares to launch its last season. If you've missed the last 7 or 8 seasons, we recommend you spend the next month renting the DVDs to catch up. Our bet (HOPE) is that during this season, Monk the OCD Super Detective will finally get his man. You see, he has been able to solve every crime except the most important one - the murder of his wife Trudy.
We are wringing our wrists that this is the last season!!!
Next Blog will be back to PR Sidebars...thanks for putting up with the mini tribute to what amounts to our weekly break from the world of PR.
