Tonight was the first of a new series of episodes of Monk, and the first without Sharona. I'm not entirely sold on Natalie (the replacement), but hopefully now that she's been officially introduced things will pick up.

I watched the new episode!

I thought that the show was going to suck without Sherona, as there would be a missing dynamic, but it didn't. I kind of like the new assistant/nurse, even if it was painfully obvious from the begining that she was gonna get the job.

Monk is one of the few shows on TV that I really, really like. The mysteries are always pretty clever (even though this week's wasn't my favorite), and Tony Shoaloub is usualy always funny in his role, deserving the awrds taht he's gotten over the last few years.

Not a big fan of the mystery in the episode, but I LOVE Traylor Howard, so the show still managed to be pretty good. I remember her as a bit of a party girl from "Two Guys and a Girl" so it's kinda tough adjusting to her as being a serious single mom.

Monk is probably my favorite show on TV (its only rivals are The Daily Show and the West Wing). I, too, was worried about the lack of Sharona, but Tony Shalhoub's proving himself perfectly capable of performing with anyone. Monk is such a defined, particular character that he has a ton to work with playing off anybody normal.

The new woman has potential, I think, and I like the idea that she maybe understands Adrian's loss better than Sharona ever could have, having lost her own husband. Her getting hired was telegraphed, but not unwelcome, I think.

This episode was worth it if only for the Miracle of Birth alone. :)

I think the dynamic will be different with Traylor Howard, but I think it will work fine.

The worst part of not having Sharona will be the loss of sexual tension between Sharona and Randy. I still think they could develop his character a little more.

My thoughts exactly! I had thought for sure Sharona and Randy would have wound up together, either as a couple or as a one night stand. That would have made for some funny scenes with Monk catching them in bed together.

Be that as it may, I loved the new episode and think the show will not miss a beat.

Monk is still in my top 5 programs, along with The Simpsons, CSI (Las Vegas, not the spin offs), Good Eats with Alton Brown and Scrubs.



I think you're an asshole. No, no, let me correct that, an immature asshole. Which is fine, except that you're marrying my daughter and I'm afraid that my grandchildren are gonna be little assholes.

It seems that Howard's and Schram's characters are quite similar: neither had a husband (one divorced, one dead), both have a kid about the same age, and both are very up-front and speak their mind.

The main difference being that Howard's character can sympathize with Monk, having lost her husband.
