"OBSESSIVE. COMPULSIVE. DETECTIVE."
The series centers around Adrian Monk (Tony Shalhoub) a fairly 
prominent law enforcement officer with the San Francisco Police 
Department, his world turned upside down when his wife 
dies under mysterious circumstances in what appears to be a car 
bombing.  From that moment on Adrian's life changes.  Suffering 
from OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) - Adrian has 
phobias real or otherwise to everything from germs,
heights to the strange affliction to milk.
With the assistance of his personal nurse, Sharona Fleming 
(Bitty Schram) and his dedicated psychiatrist, Dr. Kroeger - Adrian hopes 
in time he will be reinstated  with the force, but it looks like a long hard
road ahead of him, as every time he makes progress, he suffers
setbacks right along with them. 
Yet, he manages to assist his ex-boss, Captain Leland Stottlemeyer 
(Ted Levine) of the SFPD in solving murders that the police 
themselves have been left stumped by.  With meticulous attention 
to detail, he is able to step into the shoes of the criminal and track them 
down, only problem is - he has trouble apprehending them at times. 
It's enough to leave Stottlemeyer indebted to him, and he often helps 
in cases.
There are only two passions in Adrian's life, trying to find out what 
happened to his wife Trudy and getting back on the force - but as 
long as the hurdle of his OCD stands in his way - it's a long road to 
get there.
As serious as the subject matter sounds, Tony Shalhoub does a 
marvelous job of making Adrian Monk's plight at times seem 
humourous and sympathetic, that's why this site was created - hope 
you like your stay!
