  • Peter Tork accidentally sells his soul to the Devil; Mike tries to win it back.

    I have very early memories of watching "The Monkees" with my older siblings (I was born in 1964) and I still have all my original albums (actually, one of my siblings wrote that I was a fan of the Monkees in my baby book!). I catch reruns whenever I can, and am trying to get the series on DVD.

    That all said, this was, is, and always will be, my favorite episode. The harp solo of "I Wanna Be Free" is beautiful, and you're not too distracted by Peter's "finger-synching". Besides, Peter Tork was always my favorite Monkee, so a dramatic (for the series) episode featuring him is a pleasant plus.

    I will probably always love "The Monkees", Peter Tork, and this episode.
