Hillbilly Episode
19 June 2011 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The Monkees hillbilly episode is helped a lot by the appearance of old vets Dub Taylor and Billie Hayes and especially the comely Melody Patterson who played Wrangler Jane on "F-Troop". The boys still seem to interested and engaged in the script by Peter Meyerson (who later went from writing for the Monkees to the Sweathogs on "Welcome Back, Kotter").

The choice of music is again curious. Aired in 1967, the only song is "Papa Gene's Blues" by Nesmith which had been released over a year before. Jones sings a line from "I Wanna be free" when he is being forced to marry Melody, but that's it. "Papa Gene's Blues" certainly fit the show theme but one wonders why something more current wasn't chosen to promote the albums.
