Laugh out loud comedy
19 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Below is summary if TLDR: I've been perusing some TV shows online that are from all over the world but mostly English speaking ones unless there are subtitles; even ones that are no longer airing. I've been out of work due to illness for a while now & well I'm BORED. I stumbled on this great show "Moone Boy" & it is not only hysterical but really witty too. I love Martin (David Rawle)the kid this show centers around on. He has great comedy timing & his expressions are priceless. He reminds me of when Jake (Angus T. Jones) was young on Two & Half Men. The writers always gave Jake the best lines especially the one liners & he was adorable. Martin's character is the same. I also love his relationship with his family but most of all his imaginary friend Sean played by Chris O'Dowd; who BTW is hysterical in his own right but plays such a great character, friend, confident & partner in crime to Martin's naive, funny, witty kid. Plus they are both smart-asses & have some of the best exchanges. I highly recommend this show. It is based in Ireland & takes place in the 1980s. What more could you ask for? The retro look w/the 80s props are the best. I am a child of the 80s as I was born in 1975 so this brings back a lot of memories. There are only 6 episodes for the 1st season but I guess that is common for shows based out of the UK & Ireland but it has been picked up for a 2nd season. I can't wait to watch the rest of season 1 & looking forward to season 2. Hope you laugh & enjoy this show as much as I do. Cheers, BGG TLDR: Great funny show about a kid named Martin & his "friend" Sean living in Ireland during the 1980s. A must watch, very funny.
