FOR THE WEEK OF January 9, 2009
I am the huge Monk fan! I have every season on DVD, so I watch at least one episode of Monk every day (even though I have seen every episode)! I am responsible for making everyone I know Monk fans…mainly because I rave about how great Monk is, then I harass everyone to watch at least one episode. Of course, one episode is all anyone needs to get hooked.
I had never even heard of Monk until about a year and a half ago. That is because I don't really watch any TV. But one day I accompanied my fiancée on a business trip, and I had nothing to do but watch television. Well, there happened to be a Monk Marathon on, and I was instantly hooked. After I saw the first episode I called my mother, sisters, and best friend to tell them to tune in. I still don't really watch television…except for Monk!
My favorite episode was "Mr. Monk and the Very, Very Old Man" because I always crack up when he and Stottlemeyer argue over the vacuuming. However, I think I am making "Mr. Monk Stays Up All Night" my other favorite episode. I can't help but cry when he realizes he can't sleep because he saw Trudy's eyes. Oh I even get choked up just typing that! His love for Trudy is so beautiful; it is my favorite aspect of the show.
