Since Monk landed in a Top Three Thursday post a while back, I thought I’d narrow down my three favorite episodes. Share your favorites in the comments!
3. Mr. Monk Visits a Farm- Season 5 Episode 14
For some reason this episode makes me laugh out loud more than any other. Maybe it’s Monk’s constant references to ‘Fields of Reefer’ and his over the top fear of getting high by exposure. Or maybe it’s the fact that the poor man has literally no business on a farm. Either way, this one’s a gem.
2. Mr. Monk and the Kid- Season 3 Episode 16
This episode tore me apart. When Monk took little Tommy in after he discovered some severed fingers, the OCD detective bonded with the boy in a way that surprised me. And the grief when he had to return Tommy to foster care made my eyes sweat.
- Mr. Monk Gets Jury Duty- Season 4 Episode 16
Can you imagine being on a jury with a man who notices literally everything? It would stress and wow me in equal measure. Also, the way he convinced the other jurors to see things his way was impressive.
