Wilfred Is An Interesting Show


 Wilfred: The Complete First Season (2011)
You'll sit up and beg for more of Wilfred, the most hilarious and daringly original new comedy on TV. Elijah Wood stars as Ryan, a down-on-his-luck lawyer who forms a unique friendship with his sexy neighbor's pet pooch "Wilfred." Everyone else sees a dog, but Ryan sees a bong-ripping, beer-chugging, foul-mouthed Australian bloke in a furry suit (played by the outrageously funny Jason Gann.) By unleashing the surly, sweet and always adventurous Wilfred, Ryan may just learn to stand on his own hind legs and embrace the insanity of real life.

The 411:

Well..OK...where should I start. I found myself completely shocked at this show. Really, Elijah Wood/Frodo wants to commit suicide and now sees his neighbors dog as a dude with an Australian accent wearing a dog suit? Umm..I watched the whole first season and must admit the first half was like watching a train wreck. Almost like I was uncertain as to whether I should be watching this. Was this for real? I can tell you now that 13 episodes in, I am hooked but The Teach absolutely thinks this is the worst show ever. He doesn't get it at all but than again, we have very different humor. I love watching comedies and stand up comedians and he, not so much.

Elijah is a big actor to me, I have watched him since, Radio Flyer in 1992 and love him so maybe I am a little biased and the show actually sucks.

Only Ryan can see Wilford in his adult wearing a dog suit form while everyone else sees him as a dog. Watching Wilford, hump legs, motorboat boobs and be forced to lick peanut butter off a perverts balls was just disturbing but I love hearing how Wilford/the dog can't help himself after all he is just a dog.

While I don't think Wilfred is for everyone, it is dark, and strange but very thought provoking. Is Ryan crazy? Is Wilford crazy? I have no idea but I am hooked.

Quotes from Wilfred
I don't know, Ryan. Why is the sky grey? Why is the grass grey? Why is a rainbow grey, grey, grey, grey, grey, grey and infra grey?"

How many innocent babies have to survive before we put an end to this senseless nurturing?

One man's trash is another man's feng shui. That's why I left that pool of yellow water by the southeast door.
I hope you're proud of yourself Ryan. I'm gonna be up all night licking Jenna's tears. Do you know what all that sodium's gonna do to my blood pressure?

Sometimes when I look at you, I can almost see a 10-foot tampon string hanging out of you.


Catch Season 2 on FX
