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".Read more ›
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.Read more ›
It certainly has the charm and simplicity of an earlier time, but for me it just consoles me that having missed the swinging 60s was maybe not such a loss. Hard to imagine a 12-year-old of today being massively entertained by this kind of corniness.
And the music... I remember hearing at some point that the Monkees were a much better band than they were given credit for. Maybe. In the first 3 episodes, each of which contains two song set pieces, 'Last Train to Clarksville' one of their biggies, gets two airings, and the other four songs featured are very routine hack work.
If you want to see what the Monkees shows were like, my suggestion would be to try to find one online or something before committing to this marathon set. You might love it. I'm going to offer mine to a friend with a toddler.
