Has anyone seen that show? Adrian Monk played by Tony Shalhoub is about detective who suffers from OCD and MANY phobias. They were all brought on after the murder of his wife. He has been put on leave from the police department, but is still hired to help as a consultant. Tony Shalhoub plays the character very well. My husband and I quite enjoy watching the show. It's an interesting way to bring his issues forward but with humour.
