Monk and Scrubs

I have really been off my game lately. Not only did I miss the first two episodes of the revamped Scrubs, but I also forgot to watch/Tivo the final episode ever of Monk. Thankfully, most of the networks put their shows online, so if you miss something, you just have to wait a week or two and you can see it.

The new episode of Scrubs, introduced us to a few new faces; med students Lucy (Kerry Bishe), Drew (Michael Mosley), and Cole (Dave Franco). Lucy is taking over the narrator duties and crazy fantasies that we grew to love Zack Braff’s JD for. Denise Mahoney (Eliza Coupe), the ice cold intern from last season returns in a larger role, advising the new med students.  Donald Faison and John C. McGinley have returned full time, with Ken Jenkins and Sarah Chalke returning from time to time, and Zack Braff appearing whenever he feels like it (labeled as a regular, but only slated for around 6 episodes for the season so far… but that will likely increase). You can watch the two new episodes of Scrubs here, the series airs every Tuesday at 9pm.

Even though I haven’t watched Monk regularly in a while, I was interested in the final episodes and finding out the mystery of who killed his wife. You can watch the first part of the final Monk by clicking here, part two will be up later in the week.

I don’t know what I’d do without full episodes being online.

Tony Shalhoub as Adrian Monk

I gave up on Monk for a long time, it was one of those shows that I just didn’t have to watch. I’d forget when it was on, and it was so removed from other programming that I wouldn’t even know when seasons were actually going.  Last week began the final season, and I took another chance on the series. It was more of the same, but in a very good way. I’ve been so far removed that the charm is back for me and it feels like I didn’t miss a beat.

Tony Shalhoub as Adrian Monk has always been a great fit, and he still has it. Tonight, Monk has his hands full as he works on a high-profile case in which a maid’s killer tented to her wounds and he connects with a visiting African widower (portrayed by Lost‘s Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, RIP Eko) who is investigating his wife’s death.

If you gave up the show like I did, it might be a good time to check it out again at 8pm on USA.
