Monk - Season 1 Newsflash!

Posted by David Lambert
USA Network's Monk homepage has this bit of news posted:
  • NEWS FLASH! The entire first season of Monk will be released on DVD on Monday, January 13! Watch this site for more information, coming soon.

Now, we're cautious right off because they say that the release day is a Monday, and we all know that DVDs always hit the streets on Tuesdays. A quick glance at the calendar shows that Jan. 13th is a Monday in 2003, but that the upcoming Jan. 13, 2004 is actually a Tuesday. So the people who posted this probably aren't too familiar with DVD street dates, and glanced at a 2003 calendar by mistake.

We're reasonably certain that this blurb hasn't been sitting there all year, because previously that space was occupied by a note about the June 24, 2003 release of Monk - The Premiere Episode (which the Monk homepage mistakenly referred to as a Season 1 release initially).

The previous error and the Monday/Tuesday confusion make us cautious here, especially since there's been no word from Universal Home Video themselves. But in light of the show's recent Emmy win for star Tony Shalhoub, a Season 1 release seems entirely reasonable for the near future.

Our thanks to "Ashley" for directing us toward this info. Stay tuned, and we'll keep you posted.
