Post Final Monk Season Begins Tonight 
http://www.usatoday.com/life/television/news/2009-08-06-monk_N.htm

The final season of "Monk" starring Tony Shalub begins tonight. If you haven't watched it, give it a try. It's a clever detective series that centers around an obsessive-compulsive whose own foibles actually help him solve crimes. Shalub plays the character perfectly, and between the action, comedy and suspense there are actually a few bittersweet and touching moments as Monk and his friends and coworkers wrestle with the stubborn limitations of his very real personality disorder.

The "back story" is that Monk was a San Francisco police detective whose wife was brutally murdered, and his reaction to that trauma was the development of OCD which pushed him over the line into emotional illness and made him unable to continue to work as a cop. Nonetheless, his talents are such that the SFPD regularly reaches out to him for help on their most difficult cases.

Shalub is one helluvan actor, and has a very good supporting cast too. Enjoy it while you can.

I'm a big Shalub fan. First thing I remember seeing him in was The Seige. Good movie.
