This last season were the best shows of the series. Too bad Dr. Kroger was not around to see the progress Monk had made. Although there was much closure in the finale the writers left many possibiltes open for the future.

I read that Paul Richards (Kramer) had been offered the part of Monk. Difficult to imagine that the series would have came out as well with him playing Monk.

Friday nights won't be the same. I hope we continue to see Tony Shalhoub in other TV shows and movies.

I don't remember how I stumbled on MONK in the first place but for the last several years I've been glued to the TV on Friday nights. Another fantastic show. All of Monk's mannerisms still entertain but the show where Captain Stottlemeyer tries to get the chimpanzee to fire the gun is among the best television ever!

I only watched occasionally. Monk often got on my nerves (much like watching Lucy and Ethel on the pie production line) to the point of changing channels. Will this free up more USA air time for Burn Notice?

I loved the ending, I was happy to see all the threads tied up and I really thought it was well done!

I was glad everyone got a happy ending. I will miss him, though.

Monk was my favorite show. Shades of "The Fugitive" storyline in the last episodes.

I liked the first few years but then I thought they jumped the shark and the storylines got silly.

I'll have to see where I can see the last episodes, I assume his wife's murder is solved (don't tell me)

Smaug it's USA network, so they will replay it over and over. And, just so you know, it was a two part episode, two hours.

Smaug, Ok, I'll bite...where does "jump the shark" come from and what did you mean by it exactly? I can guess from the context, but would like to know. I bet having the star become the producer and/or director is a pretty good indicator, too. What was that episode for you?

You can watch it online at the USA site.

Jump the shark refers to a Happy Days episode when Fonzie jumped a shark tank on water skis. It seemed to be the point when all the story lines for the series became absurd.

The term jump the shark came to denote when a series reaches it tipping point and is on a down hill slide.

Thanks Sargon and Pennwoman, that's a funny link indeed. They need to add one more warning sign, the one where the lead character wrests control of the show somehow. That is often the start of the end.

There used to be a site called Jumptheshark.com but it appears to have been taken over by TV Guide. People would vote on when a series went over the edge. I always thought Andy Griffith show went down hill after Don Knotts left the cast.

'Dallas' was never quite the same after a dead Bobby showed up alive and well in Pam's shower (It was all a dream).

I loved Monk on Friday nights.

But if I could have Dallas back on Friday nights, I'd be so very happy! Friday has never been the same since that final gunshot.

The 2 movies just didn't make up for it.
