How well do you know the opening credits of Monk?

Can you remember what happens in each quirky clip and the theme song used for just the first season?

It’s common for TV shows to switch up their opening credits depending on the season. In fact, we made a whole quiz about it!

The quirky detective drama Monk used a straightforward sequence of the title character in his apartment backed by an instrumental track. In later seasons, after he had plenty of adventures under his belt, the sequence spliced clips from various episodes in with shots from the first season. The later intros also used a theme song sung by Randy Newman.

Here are shots used in Monk credits sequences from the first season to the last. Can you correctly answer a question about each image?

11/11 I had to think really hard about the last question to remember whether it was a piano or a guitar. I haven't been watching the reruns.

I got a 10 out of 11. The last one didn’t make any sense. I thought it would be one of the first two choices but definitely not the last one. It ends with a piano not a guitar.

8/11 - actually 9/11 but the Insane amount of ads kept messing with me-kind of tough

So true. I watch and listen to the song and I always start the song with "I don't think so"

11 out of 11. Monk is a very interesting show dealing with OCD and memory retention.

You guys did a "Monk" quiz with an ODD number of questions?
I got 10 right.
I could have gotten all of them correct, but that would have been a bridge too far.
My CDO wouldn't let me.

You would’ve made Monk very happy… giving up a “perfect” score to stay at 10…like him, you rounded down!!!
