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.

Wretched. Painful. Makes your gums bleed. The hair alone defies rationality, even for a child of the 80's, like me. I had to reset my IMDb password just to pass on how much I hated. Hated. HATED. this reboot. H-A-T-E-D. I-T.

May god have mercy on their souls.

I camped out for original Monkees concert tickets in 1986. Saw them again 1987. Pure pop cheese delight.

I was excited, as a 16 year old with no taste, to see the new guys.

May god have mercy on their souls.

There are no words adequate to express my hate. I can only say, "gag me with a spoon."
