Monk:

Figured we needed a thread for this. Y'know, just in case there were some fans who still wanted to talk about it.

But really, I just had this thought and had to share it:

Is it just me, or did the murderer from "Mr. Monk And The Magician" think he was a supervillain or something? I kept thinking "Batman" every throughout the whole episode. I liked it, but it was a little tacky once or twice. It kind of showed me how gimmick villainy played straight in a different genre kind of courts incredulity unless handled perfectly.

A lot of them were crazy smug pricks, like the radio DJ and the astronaut.

But this guy... it was like: "magic is my thing... so I'm going to do magic every waking moment, use misdirection based crimes, use a magician's tool as a murder weapon, theme my gloating around magic, make deals with my mob contacts by doing magic, and even use stage magic to put my nemesis in a deathtrap (though thankfully the deathtrap itself wasn't magic based)."

The whole time, I was like "this guy is hilarious."

Does anyone know if Wordof God ever confirmed what was written on the page Natalie ripped off in "Mr. Monks Favorite TV Show" ?

Now that I think about it, Monk riffed on Columbo a bit. The bad guys act like bullies and taunt Monk's neuroses. And both dectectives use their weaknesses as advntages.
What I lacks in brains I make for in…um…I make up for in…in…um…gummy bears. Yeah, that's the ticket.

I love this show to death but it really does bug me that 90% of the humor is derived from the fact no one will just spit out "HE HAS OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER ANDA GERM PHOBIA!"

Those 2 are nothing compared to the guy that played chess.

[up][up]That would require use of Common Sense/Logic and that would take away the humor.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
