Great Show
29 March 2014 | by raci1350See all my reviews

It has been a long time since there has been a sit-com that I have enjoyed quite as much as "About A Boy." Firstly there is no laugh track, MAJOR PLUS (I don't need to be told when to laugh). Secondly it has found that perfect balance between humour and life lesson. I find myself laughing hysterically for the first 20 minutes straight. Mainly at the witty/naive banter between Will and Marcus, but before I know it I feel my heart being warmed by the brotherly love you can feel between a fatherless boy and his cool older neighbour. I would suggest this show to anyone who enjoys the endangered genre I refer to as "Heart Warming Comedies." I have a feeling that if you enjoy shows like Boy Meets World or Scrubs then you will certainly enjoy, About A Boy.
