I am a huge fan of the show "Monk", so I was very happy to preview the disk
for their special Christmas episode. It is a great episode, and fun for the
holiday season! There is plenty of Christmas cheer (and jokes), along with
the regular Monk humor and pathos.
Monk and Trudy are caught in traffic when stuffed animals start falling from
the sky. Monk, already depressed about it being the 10th anniversary of
Trudy's death, charges up to the roof to stop the man from creating a public
nuisance. Shots ring out, and Monk is found over the Santa's body with a
gun. What follows is a media frenzy and public outcry, with poor Monk caught
in the middle. The episode shows fun and accurate commentary on today's news
and public fickleness.
Monk and the rest of the characters are played superbly by the cast as
always. It was a good, tight episode. Of course we knew Monk did not shoot
Santa, so the mystery was why did Santa attack Monk and cause himself to be
shot? As always, Monk figures it out and catches the bad guys.
It is a good holiday episode, with plenty of laughs and mystery, and it
makes us wish that Monk were back on the air every week with regular
episodes! Now I know what to ask Santa for this year...
I have never watched "Psych" before on USA, but I watched this year's
Christmas episode. This is a very fun show, and I am going to have to check
out some other episodes, since I enjoyed this one so much.
The show is about this psychic guy, Shawn, and his good friend Gus, who grew
up together. It's a kind of silly show, so they both come over as idiots
sometimes, but clearly both are very smart. They have a "psychic detective
agency", but really they are just good detectives use this as a gimmick to
In the Christmas episode, we get to see a lot of their families, and the
neighborhood they grew up in. They go Christmas caroling and find that one
of their neighborhoods has seemingly hung himself. Of course, they soon
realize it was murder.
I don't want to spoil it for you, but it was a good, fun episode. It airs
