FOR THE WEEK OF SEPTEMBER 25, 2006
Our latest Monk Fan of the Week, Sandietta, is a viewer from England who keeps up with Monk on DVD. Read on to see why her mother calls her Adrienne Monkey...
I am nearly as "different" as Mr. Monk myself. I suffer from a lot of phobias he has and some of my OCD habits are identical to Monk's. I use handwipes every so often, need to run boiled water on my toothbrush and everything (e.g. knifes, forks, mugs, plates....) before I use. I use 55 degrees Celsius mega hot water for shower.
I am forensic scientist (SOCO) myself, though different from the "defective detective", the role of my job is very similar. I am not as sharp as Monk is though, but I have learnt a lot since I started watching it years back. I am always thankful for Monk because he is almost just like me. One of my middle names is Adrienne, and my mum calls me Adrienne Monkey (because I am just like him, Monkey because she thinks I am a cheeky monkey hehee).
It is such a shame in England we donít get the very very latest episodes of Monk, but I buy DVDs that are available to us (season 4 now). I wish I had the privilege of Americans who can watch Monk first hand on USA Network... I just have to wait and rewatch and rewatch and rewatch the DVDs I have.
I love all characters in Monk series... that is one of the reasons why I think the Monk series is so successful because you can like all of the characters, not just one of the characters... which is usually the case as in other different shows.
Think you deserve the honor of "Monk Fan of the Week"?
