Description by OLDIES.com:
Television's favorite defective detective returns to DVD to solve a new batch of baffling mysteries with his trademark wit, wisdom .. and handwipes. Join Emmy Award and Golden Globe winner Tony Shalhoub as the quirky obsessive-compulsive detective in all 16 brilliantly funny second season episodes of the widely acclaimed series, "Monk".
His extensive dossier of phobias may keep him from working on the police force, but Monk's not about to let that stop him from solving crimes. Accompanied by his loyal (and infinitely patient) assistant Sharona (Bitty Schram), by-the-book Captain Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) and eager-to-please Lieutenant Randall Disher (Jason Gray-Stanford), Monk's unconventional methods may just be what's needed to crack some of San Francisco's most puzzling and unusual cases. Join "TV's most original sleuth ever" (Los Angeles Times) on all of his suspenseful second season adventures in the series that USA Today raves is "hilarious" and Entertainment Weekly proclaims one of the "Top 10 Best Things on TV."
Character actor Tony Shalhoub finally found his perfect role on the television show MONK, winning both an Emmy and a Golden Globe for his performance. Shalhoub plays Adrian Monk, a neurotic, obsessive-compulsive former police detective who now solves crimes in his spare time, but secretly hopes to be reinstated on the force. However, as valuable as Monk's brilliant, deductive mind is, it is matched only by the depth of his obsessive fear of germs, heights, and crowds, ultimately rendering him unfit for duty. The highly acclaimed detective-comedy has been called the successor to COLUMBO. MONK: SEASON TWO features episodes with guest stars as diverse as Andrew McCarthy, Amy Sedaris, John Turturro, Sarah Silverman, and SNL's Rachel Dratch.
