The Monkees Marathon

Antenna TV is giving a tribute to David Jones with a marathon of the Monkees.

The Monkees was a sketch musical-comedy show. The band of four would go around the country looking for gigs and get into zany adventures. The great part of the show is they constantly broke the third wall. The referenced the script, the cameras, and the fact they were actors. Puns and jokes were non-stop often ending up in laughing fits by the actors. The singing and dancing often had little to do with script.

Even 45 years later this show still holds up well. The comedy is still funny and the music is great. I recommend everyone catch an episode or two.
