At times you wonder if Wilfred has Ryan's best interests in mind
on February 16, 2016
The chemistry between Wood and Gann is clear form the first episode and this was something I found lacking in the Australian original. You want to keep watching and see how Ryan, Wood's character, adapts and grows from being a suicidal loner giving up on life, to engaging his neighbors and co-workers because of his unlikely friendship with a talking dog. At times you wonder if Wilfred has Ryan's best interests in mind, but he's always there to pick up the pieces. The way Gann acts like a dog, like when he yells at people and Ryan can hear what he's saying while everybody else hears just barking is funny, and leaves you wondering what dogs are really saying. Although sometimes dark and crude, this is the story of an unlikely friendship between a man who may or may not be insane and his neighbor's pet who Ryan sees as a man in a dog suit.
