    This book is exactly what I wanted it to be it had episode synopses, funny quotes, nitpicking of details like continuity errors And it wasn t overly sycophantic the author acknowledges the racial stereotyping that can take place, and the parts where plots completely fall apart.Organized in alphabetical order by episode title, but with an index to help navigate.Seems like it would have been a fun book to write.

    The Monkees is just about my favorite TV show ever I loved this book so much that I went out and bought it so that I can keep it as a reference for the TV show.

    The book itself is okaybut the author takes far too many sidetracks on needless political commentary where none is needed This, with the addition of the author s complaints about the silliest of things, really distracted from the focus of the book and made it difficult to finish Bear in mind that I do not say that she is necessarily wrong, but that this was not the proper forum for it.If you have enough of a basis of the series and four Monkees, you could simply watch the show The book, as other [...]

    Good fun it was nice to view the series through someone else s eyes, as if you were watching the episodes for the first time all over again Nothing particularly new in the way of information for die hards, but that doesn t really matter The author s obvious interest in the show and her conversational style make you feel like you re hanging with a pal watching The Monkees.

    This book should be a must read for any fan of The Monkees t.v series Written from an almost hybrid perspective, it gives you a fan s thoughts of each episode in the series while also noticing the little inconsistencies, hidden jokes gags, and head scratching moments most viewers probably missed the first or 100th time through I look forward to watching the series with this as a companion
