    I hadn't included House. I certainly don't think that's farce, even though they may have had some comedy now & then, like Sherlock. I'm not even all that fond of House. I think Hugh Laurie does a fine job with the character, but it doesn't land with me. I think the crime/medical solving premise doesn't work for me in general, because it's so silly, but if they reflect that it's silly, I'm good with that

    Monk walks more of a line than Psych of trying to portray some realism, but deep down, it knows & recognizes its absurdity. I mean Randy Disher is Stottlemeyer's Lt. & he's an absolutely farcical idiot... nearly as much so as Shawn & Gus.

    When a show admits its absurdity, you kind of give it a bit of a pass on realism, & just hope to be entertained & amused. I honestly think there was a missed opportunity to have a Monk/Psych crossover, both having been USA network flagships around the same time. The overall tones of both shows are quite similar too

    One thing I love about House is the way it just casually drops uncomfortable truths about human behavior in a way that's just quirky and completely within the TV procedural framework.

    I'm a huge fan of both shows, and I agree that they would have fit really well together in a crossover. I'm actually kind of disappointed we never got one.

    I always thought House was more a very dark kind of humour.
    Did he and Cuddy ever get it on? She was gorgeous

    I think they did eventually get together towards the end.

    I imagine if they did, Monk would out Sean as a fraud immediately. Monk would notice the same things Sean did and be like "He's not psychic. He noticed the scuffing on the floor and the blood droplets on his shoe."

    Yes, they got together at the end of season 6 then broke up mid season 7 because when he thought Cuddy was going to die he went back on opiods, and when she figured that out it caused her to dump him immediately.

    I don't know what happened behind the scenes but I heard that they wanted to have Cuddy appear in the last season but there was some disagreement with the actress.

    Had to return a defective TV to the store. They have to open the box to make sure it's all there (and the correct TV). I tell them to open it from the bottom and they can just slip the entire box off. So what they do? Open it from the top and take forever trying to lift the TV out and then put it back in, causing a mess in the process.

    Do you ever got through a period where you can't get enough of a certain food? I'm going through that with spaghetti, right now I'm cooking my third batch in the last week or two.

    Halo. Why a game that's now over 20 years old is still more fun to play than most games that have been developed and released in just the past handful of years.

    Yeah. The cops brought in a supposed psychic in one episode of Monk. He was not amused.

    Thursday night, and there's no new Star Trek on TV for the first time in months. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself! :lol:
