I have missed watching Monk a lot since it did not have a regular season due to the writers strike. Sunday night we stumbled on some new (well we had not seen them) episodes "on demand" so we watched one.
I certainly hope that it was a scab writer that wrote that episode. The whole idea of Monk buying a house and then hiring "Honest Jake" and then trusting him as he tore up his house was a joke. Where was the anal Monk that we love so much?
You always know it is a not so good episode when you can guess what is going on by the second commercial.
Hopefully the other episode that was on demand will be better, but to be honest my forecast is grim.
