Talk about why/what you like about the show 'Monk'.
If you don't know what Monk is then this might help.

It's one of my favorite shows, although I haven't watched it much lately.

Monk is so totally awesome. I can't get enough of the show very good writing and a very positive show for those with disabilities. particularly how they take his disability and turn it into a great asset. but more than that also balance it with the downsides. a lot of it is way exagerated but I feel they do it in a way that it doesnt detract form anything at all.

I like it, I like it for the story of it. The OCD and phobias is a plus

LOL i love the show monk ! !! I mostly like it because I myself have OCD . I had a very very bad case of it. At one point it was so bad I would just stand I one place for hours at a time so I wouldn't have anything to trigger my repetitively behaviors . (on a more positive note ) :D I got over it , not on any meds for it ether 8) which by the way I'm very proud of! I like the show because it makes people more aware about OCD . And there for more people are more likely to get help for it at an earlier age. And you don't have to wait till your standing in the middle of the playground like a statue for an hour every day till someone notices somethings wrong lol :roll: :wink:

I love that show! It is one of my favorites. His OCD is so severe and he has 9504 phobias, the most ever by a human being. There can't be someone as crazy as Monk in real life. One of my favorite episodes is where Mr. Monk goes to the mental hospital because I can relate. I always go to the mental hospital because I'm that crazy! Oh no! Something isn't even! Its not perfect! We all going to die as a result! At least in Monk world. Another one of my favorite episodes is Mr. Monk and the earthquake. In that episode he starts speaking gibberish because of the earthquake. The stress was too much for him to handle. I like it because I do the same thing! Both of these episodes were in the first season.
