Any Monk Fans here?

I've totally got into this show recently....and have probably watched all the episodes from seasons one and two. However, I was disturbed to find out that Sharona will not be back in season three. Will this totally distroy the chemistry of the show and make it suck kind of like after Angie Harmon left Law & Order and they replaced her with that blonde that is HORRIBLE, imo. What is wrong with people that they can not have a successful show and be happy with that? How come egos always have to get involved and ruin a good thing?

the blonde chick (elizabeth rohm. she was horrid on 'angel', too) is leaving at the end of the season. phew!

monk is...alright...it was better before this season, though, since the writers are determined to devote five minutes of every episode exclusively on making fun of monk's OCD. that one where he was in new york and the jackhammer kept interrupting what he was saying to the captain...okay, it was funny the first, and MAYBE the second time, but jebus...that must've gone on fifteen times. ENOUGH ALREADY!

okay...meh. i hate sharona. she is U-G-L-Y, but they were making her out to be this chick that every guy wanted to date, and i'm like...what? guess i don't have that great of an imagination.

I loved the first season, but the second season was lackluster. It will ruin the chemistry between them. I may not watch it just for that.

i started watching season 2 first before I ever saw any episodes of season one. I will say I think they toned down the OCD in season 2 now that I've seen season 1 epi's.

yeah Sharona is average looking but I don't think they had a lot of guys drooling over her but lets face it if Monk with his crazy butt can pull a chick then I guess Sharona is a playboy bunny.

I noticed they changed Benji from season 1 to 2.....I wonder if that made them think the success is in the formula and not the actors?

I like the show a lot, I suspect I have mild OCD myself so I kinda identify with the guy!

I think its a smart quirky show and the two leads do a good job...I actually think the girl in the show was cute in an off-beat kinda way.

Oddly enough Monk is shown in a dead-end Saturday afternoon slot here in Britain, a time usually reserved for ancient Columbo or Perry Mason shows. So its a breath of fresh air!

Sorry I don't watch it but I do like Tony Shaloub from back in the Wings days. The reason I don't watch Monk is that I have a phobia against the USA network. Silk Stockings (was that what it was called?) from back in the day made me stay away forever (that and wrestling) LOL

And girl I am jealous because I started a thread about The Wire and aint nobody answered.

I love USA and that's basically because of SILK STALKINGS!!!! My gosh I love me some Rob Estes...

bump the thread for The Wire....I didn't see it I would've responded. However, I'm like 5 shows behind... I plan to catch up over the holiday break.
