My friend John has a history of introducing Simon and I into TV programs he discovers. While there are a number of shows we do share a love for – Peep Show, Family Guy and South Park – which neither of us can really take the credit for discovering, the new programs John presents to us are generally poor at best. Simon is a lot more tolerant than I am; even claiming to enjoy some of John’s choice of internet downloads. He’s probably just being polite. The American comedies, with their canned laughter, which I am forced to endure on my rare visits to his Marshfield home, drive me to the brink of insanity. I normally escape to his toilet until the rubbish has come to an end and I can force my choice of television upon his eyes and ears, which, to be fair, he probably hates.

This weekend, however, while visiting my house, John brought along a memory stick with yet another program he wanted to show us. It felt ominous. John’s latest piece of television was Moone Boy. I had seen this advertised on Sky a few times and hadn’t really taken much interest. I watch far too much TV than is healthy for any human being as it is, so avoided it for the good of my well-being.

I must admit, I was wrong. John had actually discovered something rather good. Dare I say it – a gem. Three episodes were packed onto his rather small memory stick (John always reminds me that size does not matter). Once we had watched all three, I went straight onto Sky’s On-Demand service to download some more. John and Simon left, leaving me with half a dozen more episodes to watch, which I spent most of Sunday afternoon and Monday evening doing. I’ve now seen them all and have the whole thing series linked so I never miss a future episode.

Bravo, John. You, sir are a genius.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
