oh wow, how cool
I didn't know 'til I saw.
It was quite good, but Monk usually is.
Catch one of the other airings, if you have not seen it.
I'll catch the repeat, but Monk used to be *so* much better. I can't really figure out what happened (maybe it lost something when the budget got bigger), but it's not as cool as it was when it started. The last episode was good, though.
I've put a link to the official website.
Thanks, Simon. USA hadn't yet put up any info about the episode when I posted, and I couldn't find another relevant link.

(BTW, anybody notice that USA and the folks at Monk spelled Emma's name "Caufield" in all the show credits and web info? Oops.)
Monk was better first season, when it was about the mystery, and Monk's quirks kinda helped him solve them. Now it's about all the jokes they can make about Monk's problems, and the mystery takes a back seat. But - still better than most anything on network tv.
I caught the Emma episode of Monk this morning. That was the first time I'd seen the show, and I'd heard good things about it. I was very disappointed. It was a _dreadful_ episode. The plot was full of holes, and reminiscent of the worst of "Murder She Wrote." The jokes about Monk's quirks were the best part of it, and the only thing to make it even slightly distinctive (I liked the dominoes thing), but I would imagine that line of jokes would get tiresome eventually. (And the substitute nurse was like fingernails on a blackboard.) Emma's role was uninteresting; she's a fine actress but Meryl Streep couldn't do anything with that part.

This is the show that gets nominated for Emmys? The lead is a fine actor, but this was pretty awful.
I have watched Monk since the start and like others I have to say this season hasn't been good. There are moments that are amusing, however the overall stories are sloppy. I liked seeing Emma, however it is amazing that this show gets Emmys while the cast of Angel didn't even get a nomination.
