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.

Rather interesting, but NOT all that bad!
25 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite the other three authors' negative comments regarding this show, I thought "New Monkees" was somewhat interesting. When the original series first aired in 1966, I was only 4 years old, so how could I possibly enjoy it until I was a teen in the 70's? (Of course, the humor was by then dated.)

The revival was more or less a case of the new meeting the old (e.g. there were some music videos along with the comedy and the scripts were in touch with the times); true, it was only mildly amusing, but the group did have some good music (I have the audio cassette of their only album, and I eventually hope to locate a CD of it - via an oldies dealer - or otherwise have the tape dubbed onto a CD).

I had also hoped to videotape the entire series, but by the time my family purchased their first VCR in March 1987 (I had graduated from college the previous year and was temporarily living at home), Sony Pictures Television pulled the plug on the show (it was syndicated to local stations to show at whatever time of the day they chose, rather than on a network). So, Sony (or perhaps Rhino, who released the original 60's "Monkees" series on DVD, if you haven't yet folded your DVD division as you said you might consider doing), if you're reading this, would you please see about putting "New Monkees" on DVD soon? It'd be nice to see the shows behind the music again; I voted for this show at TV Shows on DVD.com, which (as of this posting) has garnered 101 votes. If anyone else enjoyed "New Monkees," I urge you to go to that website and vote for it. Remember: the more votes "New Monkees" gets, the sooner Sony (or Rhino Vision) will unearth it from their vaults and put it on DVD! (The only episode I didn't like, though, was the final one where the group was searching for a lost soundtrack.)

I also discovered recently that series star Dino Kovas was once a resident of the Detroit suburb where I now live.
