Charming little diversion with some excellent bits.
14 August 2013 | by (Richmond, VA) – See all my reviews

Moone Boy isn't groundbreaking, but it is charming.

I watched the first season over the past week and enjoyed it quite a bit. Considering his young age, David Rawle really shines as the main character Martin who has an imaginary friend, Seán(played by Chris O'Dowd).

Honestly, I was hoping for more from relationship between O'Dowd and Rawle. While the premise is set up and there are touches of what goes on in the world regarding imaginary friends, I feel like it was ultimately unnecessary to the storyline and kind of pushed to the back to make way for the rest of the characters in the real world. Even while searching for synopsis information for each episode as a refresher for this review, the thing you notice is the lack of story lines involving Seán in any major way. Given the basic premise of the show I would have expected much more storytelling involving the imaginary friend. If it weren't for the fact that I like Chris O'Dowd so much and that the rest of the cast really sold the family stories, I might have been annoyed at the under-use of the concept. The rest of Martin's family really grows on you over the first season and you find yourself connecting more with them than you would have expected. I will say that I am glad they did not go so far as to make Seán a "Drop Dead Fred" sort of character, as this would have completely changed the tone of the show.

Overall, I think Moone Boy is a show I will continue to watch when the new seasons arrive in the US. It is probably too late to really focus more on the Martin and Seán relationship at this point, so I hope they continue to make the family people I care about.
