Developed from one of Sky's Little Crackers comedy shorts, the Chris O'Dowd and Nick Vincent Murphy-written series tells the story of loveable lad Martin Moone, and his travails growing up in late eighties/early nineties Ireland with a houseful of sisters and an imaginary friend (played by O'Dowd himself). The show features a many great guest stars, super cute animated sequences and a whole lot of heart, served with a heaping dose of painfully awkward secondary embarrassment.
In short: It’s so much fun.
They pretty much had me at the use of House of Pain’s “Jump Around”, to be honest.
The first two seasons of Moone Boy are available to air on local public television stations around the country – so check your TV schedule and/or ask your local station to see if it’s on the air near you. If not, the first two seasons are also available to stream on Hulu if you fancy watching that way.
Moone Boy Season 3 is set to debut on UK network Sky beginning March 2.
There is no official American airdate for Moone Boy Season 3 as yet, but since the first two seasons were originally screened as Hulu exclusives, it seems a safe bet to assume the same pattern will hold true here. But, if previous patterns hold, that means the comedy should probably be available to screen on public television toward the end of the year. So, fingers crossed!
