Never heard of the Monk. What channel is it on? What's it all about?
As for Dirty, Sexy, Money, I highly suggest you watch it. However, you may want to borrow the first season to get an idea as to what's going on. Great writing.
Also, do you watch "Brothers and Sisters"? Oh my gosh! This is probably my most favorite drama on regular TV. Great cast with Sally Fields, Calista Flockhart, Rob Lowe... The first time I saw it was when Rob was in NY with his dad in May. It seemed like it was the season finale. I cried like a baby when I watched it, and I didn't even know the characters very well. It's just the story line was so good that I decided to get the first season on Netflix. Wow! What a really great show! Another highly suggested show for watching.
