    That little tweaker drives me crazy. He can sure solve mysteries though. He must be related to like, Shirlock Holmes, or Magnum P.I.

    You watch it because Monk is awesome. Out of all the mystery shows with the premise of a detective with an extraordinary gift, Monk is the only one that balances the character and actually able to relate to people. Other shows, like Psych or Mentalist or Suits, portrays the main character as this infallible uber awesome guy who gets laid by every woman in the show.

    Numbers tried to copy Adrian Monk with Charlie Epps but it failed mainly because everyone who watches TV is too stupid to understand Math, or too lazy to get off their fat asses to actually learn it, in other words, American.

    Monk also has a central plot that the whole series revolves around. I know some shows have it too, like the Mentalist, but because Monk actually tries to incorporate new things to at least one character for every episode, unlike the Mentalist (and other shows *coughs* CSI) which seems like a hodge podge plot with some minor story stream every now and then.

    In summation, Monk is the best mystery show ever, and to those who say otherwise, suck on my gargantuan gonorrhea-infested genitals.

    Shawn from Psych is not uber awesome.

    Cool guy yes, but he has a lot of epic fail moments.
