My wife and I had watched Monk from the beginning, and it’s been a bit of a love/hate deal. I really enjoy the show, but I can’t take too much of it at once. They have a tendency to overplay Monk’s “Monkness”, and the cringeworthy scenes get to be too much. Because of this we tend to put watching Monk on the back burner of our DVR list.
As a result, we now have a backlog of 10 episodes, including the two-part finale. It’ll be ages before we get through all these, but I know that if we wait that long, somewhere along the line someone is going to spoil the ending for me.
So I was wondering if there was a slow reveal as they approached the finale, or if the end stand on it’s own. Basically, can we skip ahead, watch the two-parter and see the rest of them later, or do we need to suck it up and watch them in order?
