Storyline

Formulated because of the '80s resurgence of the popular Monkees phenomenon, the New Monkees show saw four teen-ish boys - this time Larry, Jared, Marty, and Dino - sharing a wild & spacious house together as their aspiring band attempted to land a recording deal, and in the meantime kept falling into one crazy situation after another. In keeping with the earlier Monkees format, each episode also featured music videos and silly sketches aimed at its target audience, with material updated appropriately for its decade.

I may be the only one?
7 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, I may be the only one willing to admit it but, I liked the short-lived show. I am an (original) Monkees fan and had also thought the same way everyone else did--only negative. However, I decided to give them a chance. I liked it. It was silly, the guys were fun and I loved the music.

In segments where the guys were performing musically, they seemed to show more of themselves then the character they were playing. I enjoyed that.

I really do feel sorry for these guys, the odds were stacked against them before they even began.

I can only say, I hope they had fun while it lasted and I am still in support of them!
