MAKING THE MONKEES
January 9, 2017  | By David Bianculli

Smithsonian, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This one-hour documentary was released a decade ago, and is somewhat superficial – but it contains enough behind-the-scenes footage, vintage interviews, and clips from the old NBC series The Monkees to explain how this fabricated music group, the Pre-Fab Four, not only copied the Beatles, but rivaled them. And, at one point in the 1960s, outsold them.
