Can you pass the mega Monk trivia quiz?

Don't be afraid of this quiz! Unless that is one of your phobias.

Adrian Monk has many, many fears but fortunately, trivia is not one of them. Tony Shalhoub played the quirky detective for eight seasons of mysteries. Monk may be the center of attention, but the show served up loads of colorful characters and guest stars.

We have several questions about them — as well as some other Monk facts. It takes a true TV trivia expert to ace this one. See if you can pass the test!

Watch Monk on MeTV!

7/22 no idea what ’Monk’ is, all I know is now Sunday night reminds me of Sunday Saved By TheBell Morning and afternoon , so crossing all of Sunday off my list, for MeTV. I guess they’re moving away from the ‘Memorable Television Shows’

17/22. Looks good, but being a perfectionist like Monk, I'm less than thrilled.

Don't *quite* have Mr. Monk's memory for details, but maybe up to Captain Stottlemeyer?
Have to ask. Are you a Star Trek fan. I remember Captain Dunsel from the episode "The Ultimate Computer"
I have been a Star Trek fan since Sept 8, 1966.

There was a great actor who played Dr. Richard Daystrom…is that the guy? I looked up the episode maybe I’m looking at the wrong episode!
Swifteagle LH 5 days ago
It was William Marshall who I keep mistaken for Percy Rodriguez who played Commodore Stone in the episode "Court Martial"
LH Swifteagle 5 days ago
I really liked William Marshall. He had such an amazing voice… The timbre of it was deep and rich. Right up there with James Earl Jones. Whenever he guest starred on something I always enjoyed the episode. I don’t think I remember that other guy you’re talking about… He looks vaguely familiar, though. I looked him up.

I just starting watching this series for the first time so I only got 10 correct. I’m currently trying to binge watch off of Netflix. Can’t wait for MeTV to air all 8 seasons. I love this show . I don’t understand why folks ‘rag’ on it.

LH Oldielover 7 days ago
