Watch Saturdays at 10:30pm beginning September 27, 2014 on WMHT TV.
This program is specifically designed to be viewed by adults and therefore may be unsuitable for children.

This semi-autobiographical series is written by and stars Chris O’Dowd as the imaginary friend of 11 year old Martin, the youngest child in the large, loud Moone family. Headed by Martin’s signwriter father, who longs to be an artist and his frazzled mother, this is a family with a lot of love where everyone tends to pull in different directions. Martin has a unique view of life, dealing with enterprising school bullies with the help of his imaginary friend, who also narrates his adventures. But while most boys would dream up a superhero sidekick, Martin’s pal is a man in his mid-30s with the most common name in Ireland.
