"The Monkees" Returns to DVD in September

Just a couple of weeks after the show's 45th anniversary on September 12, Eagle Rock Entertainment will be reissuing "The Monkees" on the 27th. The groundbreaking series that brought hippies into American living rooms and gave birth to the first pre-fab rock band to become real recording artists has been out of print for years. No word on extras or remastering info yet, but season one and season two of "The Monkees" are already available for pre-order on Amazon.com.

Update: This news is so lame that I didn't even want to waste a new post on it. According to TV Shows on DVD.com (which received the word straight from Eagle Rock Entertainment) these DVDs will be the exact same discs as the ones Rhino released in 2003: same lousy transfers, same censored version of the "Too Many Girls" episode, same lack of alternate song tracks, same commentaries, same extras. The only big difference is the ugly, generic packaging. What a wasted opportunity.
