Chris O’Dowd’s Moone Boy is one of the comedies of the year: TV review

Tuesday, February 25, 2014/Categories: Moone Boy Articles, What's Happening

In Moone Boy, David Rawle’s Martin Moone took us back to the painful days of the school disco with a Dirty Dancing routine that managed to be funny and touching and sweetly embarrassing all at the same time. You don’t get that on Strictly...


It’s only two episodes in but Chris O’Dowd’s memoirs-of-an-adolescence sitcom set in a rural Ireland backwater at the end of the 1980s is already shaping up as one of the comedies of the year.


It’s a long time since I had a crush on a teacher but it’s a blush you never quite lose and, as Moone got caught up in the wafting skirts of his dreamy new art teacher (not literally, that would be pervy), I was right back there in second-year geography, puzzling over the miracle of how terminal moraine could be so darn horny.


No names, not even now, my cheeks are burning up.
