Was it just me Friday or did this episode of Monk just seem to be lacking something. It was funny like all the Monk episodes but the "mystery" wasn't overly hard to solve. Maybe that's why they decided to do the whole black and white versus color thing.

I liked it. I enjoyed both episodes, although I liked the color episode better, which I was not exspecting, because I love black and white TV and movies.

If it were more of drama than a comedy, I think the black and white version would have been better. Scarier movies are better in black and white, comedies are better in color.

I thought that this was one of the funniest episodes that I have seen in a while. I was kind of confused by the whole plot but who was paying much attention to that anyway when I was too busy laughing. I just thought it was funny how the leper turned out to be fake and the doctor turned out tho be the real leper and they were all freaking out cuz they touched him.

I agree, it was funny. But the mystery wasn't really that hard to figure out. I mean, the doctor managed to solve it.

I must agree with you on this one. I went to sleep before it was over; I have no clue how it ended, but it was definitely lacking something. It may have been that I lost interest because it was in black and white.

I thought the episode was easier to solve, than many of the others, but was so glad to see an episode earlier than the season is going to start. My favorite was the black and white version, as it seemed like it was lacking less than the color version and a little more challenging for Monk. This could be because I watched the black and white episode first.

I did not think it was one of the best episodes they have ever done but I did enjoy it. I thought for sure the doctor was a bad guy who was involved in the evil scheme but it turns out I was wrong. I was really excited to see if the black and white version was better but I actually liked the color version best.
