Martin approaches Granddad for help with his school history project, the Irish Civil War, but the old man's recollection is somewhat fanciful, involving Godzilla and Napoleon, so Martin decides to stage his own re-enactment. Sean Murphy is thrilled to find that Grandadd's imaginary friend from his childhood has returned in the monochrome shape of piano-playing George Gershwin, who is keen to live out a bucket list that includes driving a tractor and being a Peeping Tom. Granddad passes away and, having attended the funeral, George moves on to complete the bucket list whilst Martin goes ahead with his re-enactment, complete with Sean Murphy as Godzilla.

Season 3: Not as tight as it could be, but still an enjoyable and affectionate comedy
24 May 2015 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

This third season of Moone Boy was already confirmed to be the last one before it screened, and I was hoping that it would give the show a chance to bow out with consistency – not with a big finish, but just keeping the standard. This is more or less what it does, and indeed those used to a series finale where things are closed out may be disappointed that the show ends like it is really any other episode (to a point). For this season there seems to be a lot more family activity; this works as a provider of regular plot devices as it has before, however in this season it did at times feel like Martin was on equal footing with some others in terms of his role, rather than really being out and out the title character.

This also contributes to the show feeling a bit looser than it has before; it was always a gentle comedy but the abundance of characters, with the house crowded and the generation above being brought into the show too, all means that there is less for great little comedy moments. It does still produce consistent amusement with an enjoyable and affectionate tone throughout, but there is a bit of indulgence in there too – and it is not as tight as the show had been at its best. The cast remain good at the core, but it is perhaps some of the additions that don't add quite as much – not to pick on one example, but the addition of Paul Rudd to the final episode seemed more about the casting rather than the character really adding much.

Although I did think the previous seasons had been generally stronger, there is still much to enjoy here and more or less it finishes with the quality being consistently amusing and the show being enjoyable and affectionate.
