He's ingenious, he's phobic, he's obsessive-compulsive. Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Tony Shalhoub is a riot in Monk, the show that critics are praising as fresh, exciting and utterly original.
Monk's hilarious, offbeat antics have made him unfit for duty but he's back as a police consultant to help out on their most baffling cases.

Nothing on TV generated more fun than this and now you can enjoy the entire first season of Monk on DVD.

But his perfect upper-class American life comes crashing down when the tensions of the decade tear his country and community apart and his daughter Merry (Dakota Fanning) becomes a radical political activist, with devastating consequences.

Intricately-plotted legal thriller based on the bestseller by acclaimed crime novelist Michael Connelly. Matthew McConaughey plays criminal defence lawyer Mickey Haller, who prefers working out of the back of his Lincoln town car to sitting in an office. When Haller takes on rich young real estate broker Louis Ross Roulet (Ryan Phillippe) as a client, the case seems pretty cut-and-dried. As events progress, however, Haller starts to doubt Roulet's veracity, and echoes from past cases come back to haunt him. Before too long, Haller knows he's being played by a pro, but to what end and for what purpose? Marisa Tomei, John Leguizamo and William H. Macy co-star while Brad Furman directs.
