Can you pass the mega Monk trivia quiz?

Don't be afraid of this quiz! Unless that is one of your phobias.

Adrian Monk has many, many fears but fortunately, trivia is not one of them. Tony Shalhoub played the quirky detective for eight seasons of mysteries. Monk may be the center of attention, but the show served up loads of colorful characters and guest stars.

We have several questions about them — as well as some other Monk facts. It takes a true TV trivia expert to ace this one. See if you can pass the test!

Don't *quite* have Mr. Monk's memory for details, but maybe up to Captain Stottlemeyer?

I just starting watching this series for the first time so I only got 10 correct. I’m currently trying to binge watch off of Netflix. Can’t wait for MeTV to air all 8 seasons. I love this show . I don’t understand why folks ‘rag’ on it.

15/22...Thrown the ol' curve ball when they went into episode titles. Rarely do I read episode titles,and if I do,they're forgotten in the next 2 minutes. lol!....Haven't read the thread yet,but I hope someone can name the third actor who played 'Dale the Whale" besides Adam Arkin and Tim Curry!

It was Ray Porter 😁

that has to be the dumbest show on metv and they do have a few. i tried to watch monk and turned the tv off after about 15 minutes. If Grit tv don't have a good western on i will just leave the tv thank you metv

I totally understand that. If you haven’t seen it before and you started with season 1 episode 1, it’s not interesting…I’d almost say, it’s boring. It’s one of those shows that the more you watch it, the more it grows on you. But like I commented before, as much as I love Monk, I still don’t think it belongs on MeTV. It’s just too new. Don’t want to set a precedent for new shows like this on a retro TV station!!

I'm a huge Monk fan saw all of them when they originally aired and now own all seasons on DVD. I've also read all the books written by Lee Goldberg and Hy Conrade.
2 of the questions on this quiz are WRONG! Mr. Monk was not the only one to do 125 episodes Randy and the Captain also did 125 and Monk DID NOT win 8 Emmys he was nominated 8 times but only won 3 times.
As much as I love this show, I don't think it needed to be added to METV, it's on so many other channels. I wish they brought us something older from the 1960s or 1970s.

You are exactly right about two of those questions!
THANK YOU!!....I missed those two,too,because of that! Kudos to you!

17/22 - not great but I'll take It - tough , for me anyway

20/22 Missed Dale and the novels. The novels had nothing to do with the show and should not have been in the questions. JMO

I dug out my black and white 12 inch tv in my basement, still works, watched monk on Sunday, now I understand why MeTV thinks it’s a classic.
