I finally saw the finale! "The Monk" was pretty darn funny, although there's not really a medication like that is there? I'm sure certain meds could tone down the OCD, but it wouldn't make your whole personality do a 180 degree change like that or make you do things you wouldn't remember later, would it? At any rate, I was so relieved to have old Monk back by show's end. The show just wouldn't be the same if he wasn't all obsessive compulsive.
Speaking of the show not being the same, I'm also upset at the thought of the show without Sharona! I hope the rumors are just that--rumors!--and that she stays.
