Monk is one of my absolute favorite TV series. The eight and final season started in the United States recently, and I am eager to see if Monk will solve the crime of his lifetime – the murder of his beloved wife Trudy. Only time will tell. If you have missed the series until now I suggest you tune in.
Adrian Monk (played by Tony Shalhoub) is a former detective for the San Francisco Police Department. He was discharged after nervous breakdown due to his wife’s murder, and now he works as a private consultant for the homicide department.
Monk suffers from an obsessive-compulsive disorder and his numerous obsessions and phobias can at times make investigations difficult, but more often than not his sharp mind and unique ways of looking at things help solve the most difficult cases. Like Monk so often says: “It’s a blessing, and a curse.”
