I've missed him so much!

Although Monk is not appointment television for me, I have seen quite a few episodes thanks to USA's constant need to rerun their original programming a million times.  It's a cute show...the storylines are rather predictable, but it never fails to make me giggle. 

I haven't actually watched a full episode of Monk since...um, last summer, maybe?  So I had forgotten how great Tony Shaloub is.  He really does a great job with all of Monk's weird OCD quirks.  My favorite line in the ep, when Monk is eating the square tomato:  "I can taste the symmetry!" 

Traylor Howard is so perky and cute.  Every time I see her though, I'm transported back to 100,000 Airplanes when she guest starred as Sam's bitchy ex-fiancee ("If we had gotten married your name would have been Lisa Sherborn-Seaborn." Hee.).  She's quite adorable as Natalie, though.  Also, I wish I could get my hair to look like hers.  It's kind of messy, yet it still looks good.  Whenever I try to style my hair like that, it ends up looking like I just rolled out of bed.  If only I could afford my own personal stylist. :-(

Now, on to the most important part of this episode:  Brad!  YAY!  I didn't realize until tonight how much I have missed watching him act!  The last time I saw him do anything new was last year when I went to Boeing-Boeing.  The great thing about Brad is that no matter what kind of role he's in, even if it's small, he always gives a quality performance.  I can't remember ever seeing him phone it in.  Tonight was no exception...even though the part wasn't exactly Emmy-caliber, he still knocked it out of the park, in my opinion.  A biotech CEO trying to save the world is actually a really fitting role for Brad.  I wonder if the producers thought of him for the part because he's become so environmentally conscious over the last few years? 

Oh, about that mustache -- I was distracted by it for the first couple of minutes, but as the episode progressed, I got used to seeing him with it and it didn't really bother me anymore.  However, my previous statement does NOT constitute an endorsement of the 'stache.  No way.  I would much prefer him without it.  I'm just saying, it didn't ruin his performance for me or anything.
