Editorial Reviews

Is there a greater love than that between a boy and his dog? Or, in this case, a depressed and lonely man-boy named Ryan (Elijah Wood) and a tall, surly Australian in a not-very-realistic dog suit--Wilfred (Jason Gann)--who everyone else perceives as a normal dog? The morning after Ryan attempts suicide, his perky neighbor Jenna asks him to take care of her dog, who steps right into the role of Ryan's mentor/tormenter. Each episode of the FX sitcom Wilfred revolves around Wilfred teaching Ryan some Zen-like lesson about trust, loyalty, respect, and more--lessons that a dog seems ideally suited to teach, if Wilfred weren't a pot-smoking, manipulative beast. Wilfred's lad-mag comedy comes from Gann's rendition of the Machiavellian hound, who persuades Ryan that a doggie daycare attendant is molesting both him and a giant stuffed teddy bear; that Ryan should woo Jenna by competing with Jenna's alpha-male boyfriend; or that he should get into a fight with a rage-driven biker to prove dominance. Some episodes push at the ambiguous boundaries around Wilfred's identity, such as when a mystery man (Dwight Yoakam) informs Ryan that he too sees the man in a dog suit. But while Wilfred drives the plots, the show's impact depends on Wood; with his vulnerable blue eyes and elfin features, Wood gives this ridiculous premise some genuine heart. In most buddy comedies, one of the friends is metaphorically a dog; Wilfred's literal interpretation turns the series into a surrealist bromance. --Bret Fetzer

Product Description

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.

I think it's fair to say that the FX network continues to push the boundaries of conventional TV fare with its slate of provocative adult programming. When I heard they were planning to adapt the Australian comedy "Wilfred" (which I knew only by reputation), it seemed like an inspired idea. Better yet, creator and star of the original version Jason Gann was along for the ride. Gann, for those new to the scene, plays Wilfred--an existentialist, pot-smoking dog. Befriending his suicidal slacker of a neighbor (Elijah Wood), Wilfred appears to the loner as a man in a dog suit. Everyone else sees a playful pooch, while Wood is left with a new best friend (and frequent antagonist) to teach him unorthodox life lessons. It is a buddy comedy unlike any other as to see life through Wilfred's eyes can make the world seem completely logical or it can be horrendously demented. It's all rather unpredictable.

As such, the television program itself can be a love-it or hate-it proposition. Those that embrace the show's lunatic wisdom will be vocal and avid supporters. Conversely, the high concept and subversive humor is likely to perplex just as many viewers who will dismiss the show as complete garbage. But if a show can elicit strong and passionate feelings, it's doing its job--and, make no mistake, "Wilfred" aims to provoke. For myself, I eagerly awaited the arrival of this show. And in truth, I didn't love the first couple of episodes which were offbeat, strange, and lacking in many of the laugh out loud moments that I expected. But I kept watching and the show really got under my skin. The humor can be so off-putting and disturbing and yet it so perfectly fits the tone of the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Man's best... uhhh... September 16, 2011
Format:DVD
It's a simple but bizarre premise -- a suicidal young man encounters a dog that looks (to him) like an Australian man in a dog costume. Yeah, that's the premise, and it didn't sound any less insane in the original Australian sitcom. But somehow "Wilfred" works beautifully, mainly from a combination of clever/dark/gross/twisted humor and the chemistry between Elijah Wood and Jason Gann.

Depressed by his joyless life, ex-lawyer Ryan Newman (Wood) tries to commit suicide... and fails miserably, leaving him with no job, a nasty neighbor and an angry pushy sister. Then his beautiful neighbor Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann) asks him to look after her dog Wilfred during the day. Everyone else sees Wilfred as a dog, but Ryan sees him as... well, a pot-smoking Australian man in a dog suit.

Ryan soon finds that Wilfred is everything he's not, and ends up being dragged into a celebration of joie de vivre by the devious canine. What comes next is vet trips, angry neighbors, a horrifying doggy daycare, insane single moms, Jenna's jerk boyfriend, Wilfred's "gift" for detecting imminent death, a ghostly dog collar, Ryan's similarly loopy mom, and Ryan wondering if he should continue his friendship with the dog.

It's never made entirely clear if Wilfred (as Ryan sees him) is real, or if Ryan's unbalanced mind is just making him up to cope with reality. And honestly, "Wilfred" is as enjoyable as it is because it leaves you wondering --
it's dark, twisted, weird, and gets pretty warped at times (the stories include suicide, drugs, assault, peanut butter, and the molestation of stuffed animals!).

And it's HILARIOUS.

Well, not all of the humor is twisted -- we have fun scenes like Ryan racing through the streets in a cape, or falling into a giant hole Wilfred dug.
