Excellent Dutch TV show
5 June 2017 | by DirkjanvanvlietSee all my reviews

Most Dutch TV-shows are mediocre at best. Toon however, is an exception to this rule. Maybe because it is an independent production, created by KPN (and you can only watch it through a KPN subscription in the Netherlands at this time).

By accident a clip of the nerdy and clumsy Toon, with whom everyone can identify at least a little bit, goes viral. In this clip Toon sings together with the beautiful Nina, who is also socially a bit awkward, and with this clip they suddenly become famous. Toon's sister starts to take care of this duo and becomes their manager. In trying to get the Toon & Nina act even more famous, Toon gets into a lot of socially difficult situations with which he almost can't cope. But every time they seem to get out of it with flying colors.

The roles are played very well by the for me unknown Dutch cast. The story lines are funny and entertaining. Well worth the watch!

(Probably only interesting for Dutchies, because of the references to Dutch locations and cultural events)
