Product Description

Written by and starring Chris O'Dowd, whose career has taken him thus far from The I.T. Crowd to Bridesmaids, amongst other stops, Moone Boy arrives on disc in the aftermath of heavy praise following its TV transmission.

It's set in and around the area where O'Dowd grew up, and it's thus perhaps no coincidence that Moone Bay is also described as 'semi-autobiographical'. It certainly has the feeling of a project that someone is very vested in, and here, O'Dowd plays the imaginary friend of a young boy. Furthermore, he's the imaginary friend of a young boy whose drawings have a habit of coming alive. It's a very well handled setup, too, with the show both selling the concept and earning many good laughs. There are also welcome appearances from the likes of Steve Coogan, Johnny Vegas and Deirdre O'Kane, as well.

But it's O'Dowd who particularly impresses here, in a show that's far more ambitious than it may at first appear. Incorporating pieces of animation too, it's a comedy with real heart to it, ripe for discovery on disc for those who missed it. The DVD also features a special glimpse behind the scenes, which is worth checking out. It's the episodes you'll be returning to time after time, though. --Jon Foster

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest nostalgic show in years 1 Nov 2012
Format:DVD
It is often said that observational comedy can be the funniest, and this is very true of Moone Boy's first series.
I expected Chris o Dowd to be funny, quirky, cheeky and a bit daring in his retrospective and semi autobiographical look at his 11 year old self. He did not disappoint. However, I did not expect such attention to detail about small town Ireland to be so perfect in its

5.0 out of 5 stars innocent comedy told as it is 7 Oct 2012
By bigmike
Format:DVD
Moone boy is probably the funniest of uk/ire comedy since father ted . I cant help but see my upbringing brought back to life but with a tongue in cheek approach(my god that happened to me although i wouldn't admit it). The acting from all involved is convincing and enjoyable,the leads are fantastic and believable.The only downside is its only six episodes and we have to wait probably to next year for new episodes.I have seen chris o'dowd in many things and enjoy his presence but in this i can see he is having fun and we are along for the ride

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking TV Comedy 21 April 2013
By Tommy Dooley TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A cracking TV comedy comes along every now and again bit the periods in between are as arid as any desert, Chris O' Dowd has brought us a luscious oasis of mirth based on his Irish childhood and I can't get enough of it. It is about Martin Moone played brilliantly by the young David Rawle. He has three sisters and is both the youngest and the only boy growing up in eighties catholic Ireland. In order to cope with the travails of life and the terrors of school he invents an imaginary friend.

This imaginary friend is, Sean Murphy, is played by Chris O'Dowd (`The IT Crowd, `The Sapphires' and `Bridesmaids') who is his usual entertaining self. We follow them on the ups and downs and the inevitable situations that lead to only more trouble. Over the six episodes we also have guest appearance from the likes of Steve Coogan and Johnny Vegas - playing another imaginary friend. We also have school bullies, the effects Mary Robinson had on women's rights and more importantly hair styles and a pastiche of the Berlin Wall as well as some unintentional and intentional bad make up days.

This is one of those shows that becomes addictive, like `Father Ted' or more recently `The Inbetweeners' and I absolutely loved it. It does help if you get the whole Irish humour thing, but either way the characters are so over the top and the situations just on the right side of ludicrous that it all works brilliantly. I just hope they get around to another series very soon as this is the sort of thing we need more of, a lot more indeed. I am off to watch them all again as it really is that good and I know I will have missed bits through laughing the first time round.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny! 25 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fantastically funny series and I do hope they do another one. If you've not seen it on Sky buy the DVD, it's a really sit down with the family and watch. The humour is alternative, a little rude from a boy's perspective and so some may not get why this Irishman is following this Irish lad around. I did at first then when you get it, it is brilliant. What a great concept.
