We finally got around to watching this week’s new episode last night (which was the last repeat showing of the week) – didn’t get a chance to tape it Friday night, and had storms and thus a bad satellite signal the other times. Like a moron I didn’t toss a tape in while we watched it, as usual. So of course the phone rang right as Monk figured out how they were cheating, and like another moron I answered the phone. By the time I got my friend off the line, we had missed it.
Mr. S thought it was something with the blinking applause light, but the Monk web site says it was something about the question cards. I didn’t notice any funny business, and I don’t have a tape to go back to. Have mercy on me, please!
(Yeah, the plots have been getting flimsy, but they were always straight out of Encyclopedia Brown to begin with. We just like the characters and we’re big Tony Shalhoub fans. )
