With the new MONK film, MR. MONK’S LAST CASE, now streaming on Peacock, fans may be tempted to revisit the series before (or after!) watching the latest chapter in the story.

But with eight seasons to choose from, where should you start? MONK executive producers Andy Breckman, David Hoberman, and Randy Zisk picked ten key episodes to stream on Peacock…

  • “Mr. Monk and the Candidate” (S1, E1) — The pilot episode, in which Monk partners with assistant-nurse Sharona to investigate his first murder, as he struggles with OCD
  • “Mr. Monk and the Three Pies” (S2, E11) — We meet Monk’s estranged brother Ambrose (John Turturro), who’s agoraphobic, giving us more insight into the family’s backstory
  • “Mr. Monk and the Red Herring” (S3, E10) — After Sharona leaves him, a devastated Monk finds a new assistant, Natalie (Traylor Howard)
  • “Mr. Monk and the Kid” (S3, E16) — Monk enjoys taking care of a toddler who’s related to an investigation, but realizes he’s in no shape to become a parent
  • “Mr. Monk Goes Home Again” (S4, E2) — Monk makes up with his brother Ambrose as they await their father’s uncertain return
  • ”Mr. Monk Bumps His Head” (S4, E11) — Tony Shalhoub’s Emmy-winning performance as an amnesia-striken Monk whose love for Trudy is so powerful, he cannot bring himself to be with another woman (played by Laurie Metcalf)
  • “Mr. Monk and the Actor” — Monk is star-struck by an actor (Stanley Tucci), who may play Monk in a TV movie but ultimately decides Monk is far too depressing
  • “Mr. Monk Buys a House” (S7, E1) — Still reeling from his therapist Dr. Kroger’s untimely death, Monk finds a new therapist in Dr. Bell
  • “Mr. Monk’s 100th Case” (S7, E7) — While being celebrated in a TV documentary, Monk must solve one of his biggest cases yet: catching a serial killer
  • “Mr. Monk and the End” (S8, E15 & E16) — Monk finally solves the murder of his wife Trudy, and forges a relationship with Molly, the stepdaughter he never met
