First the "caveat emptor" i.e. "let the buyer beware": both series I have bought (from separate sources) are indeed Region 2 (in fact Region 2,3,4 and 5 to be precise) BUT the transmission standard is NOT the British PAL TV standard as stated in the Product Details section, but the AMERICAN/JAPANESE NTSC TV standard (bizarre or what?) so please ensure your DVD player and TV can cope with NTSC (most TVs & DVD players less than 5-6 years old will almost certainly handle NTSC OK - but check first) before you buy either series 1 or 2 - in case the box set you get is NTSC as well. I'm lucky... my system copes just fine with NTSC!

Well now that's dealt with, the series proper! I clearly remember the Monkees from my childhood and although it never realy wowed me then, when I watched the first few episodes on the DVDs I found I was almost rolling round on the floor with laughter! Their brand of quickfire, wacky, slapstick and highly visual humour has in my opinion aged very well! Sadly the all-too-obvious canned laughter hasn't!!

Humour is one of those thngs that is very personal: one man's meat is very much another's poison in this regard; but don't forget there's the music of the Monkees captured here as well, and that too has aged very well and is almost worth buying both series for on its own. "Take The Last Train To Clarkesville" and "Pleasant Valley Sunday" are still firm favourites of mine after all these years and still raise the hairs on the back of my neck whenever I hear them!

Restoration quality is pretty good considering the age of the material although there is evidence of some colour fading on the original film prints, but it's "liveable-with".

This is a very cute box - exactly as the Amazon photo. Downside is that it is a big cute box, 7cm x 15cm x 15cm, and mine got damaged a little in the post and required re-gluing. The actual DVD's are all in their own little cardboard miniature `Record' sleeves, great little facsimiles of the Monkees LP covers, fitted into a removable `record deck' outer cardboard case that slots into the portable `record player' box. All the episodes 1 to 32 from the first series are here, first aired from Sept 1966 to April 1967, and they are spread over 6 DVDs. The final DVD also has a few extras, like the Kellogs commercials, discography, play songs only, Monkees commentaries, interview with songwriter Bobby Hart, and a Monkees memorabilia gallery. The set also has little booklet of the chapter indexes and a short `behind the scenes' written piece that's quite interesting (I didn't realise Mickey and Davy were only 20 when picked or that the Monkees concept wasn't nicked from the Beatles film `Hard Days Night' - one of the creators, Bob Rafelson, had toured with a struggling young band in 1962 and got the idea then). See tvtome.com for the actual episode list. There is also a similar `record player' DVD set for season two.

This first season DVD set is great fun, if a little repetitive naturally being nearly 16h of episodes. My daughter (12) likes the Monkees and has watched most of the episodes - but not as much as her original 4 episode DVD `The Monkees our favourite episodes' - NTSC Region 1 locked as well - so perhaps she has suffered from Monkees overload fatigue (and she has since fallen under the spell of the Charmed ones). She also has the CD set `The definitive Monkees - limited edition' which she really likes. She became a fan after singing 'I'm a believer' in the school Choir.

I was getting frustrated with the lack of variety or escapist type humour shows for my children. My daughters love music and silly humour which made me think about how much I had enjoyed watching The Monkees on Saturday morning television and summer holiday television in the early 80's. So I ordered it and my kids love it! They are the proud owners of both seasons of shows and were gutted to find out that they were the only seasons made - there aren't any further shows! They do enjoy other more modern shows too but I really feel that these have given them hours of fun - and it is lovely hearing them humming some tunes that my Mum would have recognized!

I have been looking for this for years. Just as good as I remember from Saturday mornings in the 70's/80's. I still have a soft spot for Mike Nesmith!

I consider myself extremely lucky to obtain this DVD boxset which was the last one in stock by Amazon back in early March. I'm very relieved it turned out to be Region 2 as I was put off for a while by the other reviews saying it wasn't the correct region but I decided to take a risk as there was only one copy left at a reasonable price. I've been enjoying the episodes over the weeks and am currently on disc 5. I think the boxset has been done extremely well and I like the packaging a lot. Its an absolute joy to watch. However I am disappointed that Season 2 isn't available at all at present as Region 2 (well only for an unreasonable price second-hand) and wonder why this is? Naturally anyone after watching this boxset will want the next one. I certainly hope this is rectified in the future.
