FOR THE WEEK OF AUGUST 21, 2006
Our latest Monk Fan of the Week, Dawn, is such a big fan that she even watched the show on a month-long camping trip in the mountains! She and her son are both proudly Monkish, because they realize that the world would be quite a mess without them. Dawn's favorite episode is the classic "Mr. Monk and The Kid". Here is her entry:
Hi, my name is Dawn. I am a mother and a 7th grade math teacher. My 11 year old son, Jackson, and I enjoy your show immensely. It would seem that we both identify with Mr. Monk's obsessive-compulsive ways. That, in addition to our love of a great mystery, makes Monk our number one favorite, can't miss an episode, show!
Even our month long trip in the mountains didn't stop us from watching Monk. After a long day of hiking, sightseeing, or boating, we would come back to our campsite, have our campfire, clean up, then retire to the trailer and watch a Monk DVD.
We are both extremely organized and we are both clean freaks. Now, we are proud to call ourselves Monkish! After all, if it weren't for people like us, the world would be a mess. Our unmonkish friends admit that they need us. Although we also admit that we need them...to help us relax a bit. So we relax with any great episode of Monk.
There are so many touching episodes of Monk. My favorite would have to be "Mr. Monk and the Kid". To watch Monk let down his defenses for Tommy was indeed a moment to be remembered. In spite of all of his phobias, he will still go the distance for whatever needs to be done. I'll take Adrian Monk in my corner any time!
If only more people were like the character of Monk, that willing to help someone in need, or just that willing to use their god given gifts in a meaningful way. Thank you USA Network for providing my son and I with some great entertainment when we finally do sit down to relax!
