    Are there any Monk fans here? The final season is starting tonight at 10! I just read on the USA website that Bitty Schram (Sharona)will be coming back this season! I know I can't wait to see that, I wonder what she will be like with Natalie, you think they will get along?

    I just watched last seasons last 5 episodes that are on the website. I really, really liked Mr. Monk and the Lady next door! he was so cute with her. And TecherNY I know its kinda sad but at least they are going to wrap things up for us and some really good guest stars are coming on and send it out well.

    I think I always liked Natalie just a little bit more.

    I used to watch it when we had cable and DVR, but since we had to cancel and get basic cable, I haven't been able to watch it for a while. Someone said they've been watching it on a website??? What website is this?

    Good show.

    It got a little... shaky around season 6, but season 6 finale saved it, and 7 was a little off with the death of Stanley Kamel + Introduction of new therapist for Monk.

    8 should be interesting, since they will have to focus solely on story most likely

    I have not seen too many episodes with Sharona. I don't even know how long she was on the show. She seemed more like a "sidekick" and Natalie seems more like a "caretaker". I liked both of them though.

    OMG!!! We love Monk! We just discovered him last year, DVR'd all the episodes we could find and watched them whenever nothing else was on. We are so sad this is it :(

    When I first saw this thread I thought you were talking about Thelonious Monk.

    I love Monk. But I think we're talking about two different Monks. :)

    Did everyone like last night's episode? I thought it was good but a bit predictable.

    I was on the phone with my mom for most of the episode... toward the end, mom asked "Do you think they'll kill Monk so that he can finally be back with Trudy once he solves her murder?" I would hate to think that would happen, but now I'm almost scared to watch the last episodes...

    OMG no no no no no, That would just hurt my heart so we can't think such things! But I am sure once he findsTrudy's killer he will be at peace with it all.

    Tonights episode features Mr. Echo from Lost. I loved him so very much on that show so it will be great to see him and Monk together!

    Do you guys remember the episode where someone was posing as Trudy and Monk thought she was still alive? That was so sad when he found out it wasn't really her.

    I cried watching that episode. It's so sad that I can be this invested in a fictional character.

    Sharona was on from Season 1 through 4.

    Natalie from Season 5 through 8.

    Sharona was more of a caretaker.

    Actually, Sharona was more of a bitchy nurse who took the tough love approach.

    Natalie is nicer to Monk while pushing him slightly outside his boundaries

    Ok, I admit I started to tear up a little when he hugged Samuel and didn't need a wipe. Sniff, sniff...

    ahsila, I have to admit that I was totally tearing up too! That was such a great episode. Mr. Monk made such a great connection with "the foreign man" it was amazing to see him open up like that, a very real break through for him indeed. I also loved how funny "the foreign man" though Natalie was. I can't wait to see the new episode tonight.

    Thanks for another reminder!! I am looking forward to tonight's show. I think I might have missed a lot of episodes from the first few seasons since I only remember seeing Sharona in a handful of episodes. Well, when the show ends, I guess I can rent the first seasons!!

    LOL no problem, its what I am here for! The episode for tonight is about UFOs so that will be fun for sure. If you miss any of the episodes from this season they are up on the USA website! And USA is great for doing marathons of its shows!

    I like how the last episode started to reintroduce the Trudy plotline. This season is heading in a good direction so far.

    What did everyone think about last night's episode? I laughed and laughed and laughed. I loved when he used the last of his water in the canteen to clean off his hands because they were all sandy LOLOLOL :rofl:

    Oh yeah, that part was great too. My husband told me to stop laughing so loud or I'd wake the neighbors (they go to bed at 8pm LOL).

    OH man tell me about it! I got several really good laughs from this one, for sure! I also loved the belly button thing it made me think of Kyle XY for second and then Natalie at the end trying to check it out was pretty funny too.

    Have you guys been watching the last few episodes? What did you think of Sharona when she came back? Does anyone think Trudy's murder will be solved before the end of the season or that he will be reinstated?? I've been enjoying most of the shows. Some have been better than others.

    Last week's episode with the dog was hilarious--and so moving how he got so attached to it!

    I didn't care too much for the Sharona episode, but I never really liked her, so my opinion was a little biased :)

    I really can't see him being reinstated...
