Ian and I have been watching the most delightful television show. It’s called Moone Boy and it’s by Chris O’Dowd (remember him? The cute guy with the Irish accent from Bridesmaids? Kristen Wiig’s love interest? Yeah, him). He plays the imaginary friend of a pre-teen boy who lives in a small town in Ireland with his 3 older sisters, parents, and goofy best friend in the early ’90s (the costume designer NAILED it). O’Dowd created and co-wrote the series, based on his own childhood in Ireland.
The only downside is that it’s really difficult to Moone Boy. It aired on Sky in the UK, and then disappeared. We’ve been watching it on this weird/awesome channel that comes for free with our satellite package. They don’t have it at the Toronto Public Library. If you’re in the States, you can watch it on Hulu (there’s the Hulu trailer below), but it’s nowhere in Canada. If you happen to come across Moone Boy anywhere… rent it, download it, buy it. And then let me borrow it.
