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.

Everything With the Word "New" In the Title Is Begging For No Chance
10 April 2006 | by (Akron, Ohio, United States) – See all my reviews

I am a huge Monkees fan, and I loved this series as well, but yes, it was doomed from the conceptual stages.

It was obvious that someone was trying to capitalize on the renewed popularity of the Monkees due to the re-airing of episodes on MTV and Nickelodeon.

I liked this show, the music was awesome. OK, well, the acting was sub-par, but then again, so were the originals.

I still have the cassette of the album released in conjunction with the show (no small feat, considering how many times I've moved and how many tapes I've lost over the years) and the songs on it are pretty good. I still hum "Affection" every now and then.

It was too bad this show didn't get a decent shot, but they never gave the Monkees a decent shot either, so it was bound to flub.
