    Set in Ireland Moone Boy focuses on the day to day life of a twelve year old boy, and his imaginary friend. A sweet and subtle comedy the six episodes in this first season are all well written and often pretty funny and should appeal to fans of shows like The Office (original UK version).

    Clever, comedic explorations of fragile parents and misguided teenagers that converge at the innocent happenings of a 12-year-old boy. A satisfying commentary on social cliques.

    This. Is. Hilarious. I'm Irish and this is one of the best Irish sitcoms I've ever seen. (Come to think of it, I haven't seen many but that's beside the point.) There are lots of really smart jokes and you must be a real cynic if you don't like it. I'm very skeptical about an American version though, why must they always feel the need to buy everything that looks like a moneymaking machine?

    Co-written by O'Dowd with Nick Vincent Murphy, it is a finely crafted little jewel of a show. Its humor is quiet--which is not to say polite or conventional--but nearly every laugh line delivers.

    Mostly Moone Boy is a coming-of-age story for a kid probably not yet equipped to battle the real world. But there’s so much humor and sweet-but-not-sacharrine moments (and absurdity), that it’s the kind of coming-of-age story you can’t wait to see Martin (and O’Dowd) experience together.

    Moone Boy can’t help but play like a minor trifle at best, a semi-sweet but not particularly memorable indulgence.
