Here's an article about it: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-monk-idUSTRE5B60YM20091207 Only one thing bothered me about the show and that was Randy Newman singing the theme song from Season 2 to the end. I just can't stand his voice, but the song itself (music) is great. However, I actually loved his "We're gonna miss you" song he wrote for the ending, coinciding with the montage of clips from the show throughout its 8-yr. run. Very well-done. Yes, I saw it myself for the first time yesterday, although I have seen many of the episodes previously! I completely enjoyed the closure at the end, and the final montage. But I have to gripe about some of the plot holes in the finale -- Trudy thought her baby had died, so why would the judge contact her and *kill* her to shut her up twelve years ago, fifteen years after the birth? He had to know she was married to a detective by then, and you would think he would avoid drawing any attention to himself. And he *hired* underworld characters to carry it all out! That only draws attention to something that was long over. And how did the judge know that Trudy had not told others, including her husband, about the affair and baby? And why did the judge say "take care of her" right before he killed himself? The "baby" was 26 years old and had been adopted years ago -- even if he knew where she was, it was not like the judge was taking care of her -- she had adoptive parents. I was so pleased that Natalie came back to work for Monk again, although her music promoter job suited Natalie's brand of cool. And it was lovely to see tiny Julie and her goldfish again in the montage, and realize how much she had grown up on five seasons of her appearances. But it was a good conclusion for Monk himself -- I am very fond of the character. 3 Link to comment
