"He said the Fab Four's 1964 big-screen romp, "A Hard Day's Night," was "very much a template," as was their 1965 follow-up, "Help!" Another inspiration was the Monkees, who spawned a short-lived series in the mid-1960s, delirious fans and a succession of hit singles."

I can watch them whenever, no lie. I watched aHDN like, every day for a week. I might just watch them later. If that was their template, I am SOLD. Very sold. As in, I'll promote it.
