Monk: Season 1

A cute collection of episodes that made for pleasant background viewing. There wasn’t a huge amount of mystery to most of the episodes – either with the guilty party shown committing the crime at the start or through just being utterly predictable. This doesn’t really matter that much as the whole series is focussed on Monk and how he does what he does. The idea of an obsessive compulsive detective is an interesting one and well suited to a comedy-drama – but I wish it was a bit funnier or a bit more dramatic.

DVD Special Features
The small collection of featurettes on the development of the series, casting and concept are interesting to watch. Shame there wasn’t a bit more detail and a couple of commentaries.
