Overview

This six-disc box set includes all 32 episodes from the first season of the groundbreaking mid-'60s musical sitcom The Monkees. Unlike its VHS counterpart, the programs are presented chronologically, with the first five discs housing six complete half-hour broadcasts. The final DVD not only sports the last two shows, but also special features, such as the never-before-aired 16 mm version of the pilot, several vintage TV ads and promos, a discography (amounting to little more than a shameless plug for Rhino Records' Monkees' CD catalogue), as well as a memorabilia gallery. The multifaceted high resolution DVD format is a mixed blessing, as each disc is empowered with extras not found on the various VHS versions. There are a dozen respective audio commentaries from band/cast members, director James Frawley, and chief Monkees songwriter Bobby Hart. Other extras are a 5.1 surround-sound playback option, as well as the programmable capability that allows viewing of just the musical selections. The downside includes difficult to navigate and tedious onscreen menus, poorly remastered video, inexpensive packaging, and insignificant liner notes (that is, when compared to the oversized and fact-filled booklet that accompanied the complete VHS box set). These caveats aside, Monkees' enthusiasts will be enamored with each fun-filled episode as they remain remarkably fresh thanks to the frantically paced mix of slapstick comedy and ultimately timeless music. For the more seasoned viewer, the commentaries are particularly worthwhile as they include a plethora of behind-the-scenes insights and reminiscences.
