Mr. Monk Is on the Run (2) - S6-E16

Plot hole: When Stottlemeyer is confronted by the Sheriff for not going to the morgue there are 2 plot holes in that one scene: first it is impossible for that article to be in the morning paper since the coast guard "just fished him out" last night. And secondly an article, especially a long article like the one about the body in the bay would contain a physical description of said body. That is the reason it does not make sense to even ask the captain why he did not go to check the body to see if it was Monk when the body was tattooed and had red hair. (00:13:30)

Suggested correction: The article being there that fast is a bit odd, the sheriff mentions a police alert had been put out and was why he went to the morgue. That was what he was confronting the captain about. Even without the article the point of why he didn't check is still a valid question.

Do you really believe that the police alert did not include a description of said corpse being found for the missing person's unit to combine against their lists?

Monk (2002)

Mr. Monk and His Biggest Fan - S6-E1

Corrected entry: Monk is confronted with a case where Marci's dog, which died 3 days earlier, is suspected of mauling her neighbor. Marci therefore is suspected of killing her dog after the fact to save herself from prosecution. Any veterinarian could easily determine whether a dog died today or 3 days earlier by its stage of decomposition.

Correction: While true, Marci hadn't been arrested or charged at that point. The police were still investigating the case as seen by the Captain with the file at dinner. It was only a theory at that point that she had her dog euthanised after the death.

Of course but my point is that it did not need Monk to prove her innocence as portrayed and it is highly unlikely that Monk would - according to his disliking of Marci and his genius - would not have pointed to that simple solution.

Suggested correction: Not necessarily, as in many cases when someone is trying to claim someone else's inheritance it can take years until such a case is finally resolved by a judge's ruling.

The point of the mistake is Randy said all his uncles are dead, but then later, Harvey Disher is alive. The farm wasn't in some probate court for years, Harvey had died the month before.
