Q. Right at the end of “Hell on Wheels” they
had a song that I liked very much.
A. That’s “Devil’s Waitin’,” by Black Rebel
Motorcycle Club. It was included on their CD
“Howl,” from 2005.
Q. On the series “Monk,” did Monk ever find
out who killed his wife and why?
A. Yes. (And, once again, for those you just
catching up on the series, what follows may be
a big SPOILER.)
In the series finale in 2009, Monk (Tony
Shalhoub) found a videotape made by his wife
Trudy (Melora Hardin) before she died. In it
she said she had an affair long ago with her law
professor, Ethan Rickover (Craig T. Nelson);
she became pregnant and had a child who,
Trudy believed, had died the same day she was
Rickover, determined to hide his actions as
his career advanced, killed the midwife and
arranged several other murders, including that
of Trudy, as well as trying to have Monk killed.
Instead, Monk solved the case, which led to
Rickover committing suicide; he then learned
that Trudy’s daughter was alive, and met her.
Q. Colby Donaldson hosts “Top Shot” on the
History channel. What is his own experience
A. In the series’ companion book, also called
“Top Shot,” Donaldson says this of his shooting
“I learned to shoot when I was 6 years old
and that experience is one of my best childhood
memories. My father taught me on a
Winchester single-shot .22 rifle that was the
first gun that he bought when he was a kid. .
I’ve been into guns ever since.
The marksmanship series has done well for
History, and Donaldson tweeted recently that a
fifth season has completed production for an air
date to be determined.
