Monk

Funniest episode ever last night. The "mystery" was lame even by Monk's Encyclopedia Brown standards, but Good Lord A-mighty, it was funny.

They didn't even slow down the show, as they so frequently do, with one of those unwatchable two-minute "comedy bits" of Monk rearranging crap. Those weren't really funny the first dozen times, and now they just grate. We get it-- he's obsessive. Move on, guys.

But man... last night had me laughing out loud.

If you don't watch the show, look for a repeat on USA. Just as a teaser: Monk, obsessively neat and with a huge pile of phobias about garbage and germs, is going a little crazy due to a garbage strike. He becomes pretty unhinged, and ultimately "solves" the mystery of a union boss' death by postulating that a random celebrity is responsible. The celebrity shows up in a cameo to illustrate Monk's absurd theory.

May not sound funny, but if I say more I'll spoil it.
