Who was the Episode MVP ?

No results found.
No results found.
  • The Monkees in a Manhattan hotel soundstage

    Lousy episode with no use of the city of New York aside from the episode intro for a split second. The whole show is on a soundstage in the form of a hotel room and lobby. The episode is very boring.
