Here’s a little story for you: When I was around six or seven, I would race home from school in the afternoons simply so I could watch The Monkees reruns on TV. It never crossed my mind that this show was 30-plus years old, that the way-cute boy band members were almost senior citizens, or that my massive crush on Mr. Jones would never be reciprocated. I’ve had these DVDs for a few years now (actually, I have the limited edition boxed set because I’m just that dorky, but I couldn’t find a good pic online), and, as always, I maintain that this show was under-appreciated, quirky and hilarious…and these guys were way (way!) ahead of their time.
And let’s be real…how cute was Davy?!
