Wilfred Season 1

by Lyndsay Conway Google+ on Monday, 20 August 2012

If you like your comedy surreal and slightly dark, Wilfred is one TV series you should pick up on.

Elija Wood plays Ryan, a depressed young man trying to unsuccessfully make his way in the world - who just happens to see his neighbour's dog as a scruffy and slightly dubious Aussie man in a dog suit.

Perhaps best descibed by the director as 'part Labrador Retriever and part Russell Crowe on a bender', Wilfred smokes pot, likes watching Matt Damon films and doesn't mince his words. The two strike up an unlikely friendship, as Wilfred takes Ryan on an adventure that helps him to see past his own fears to the world outside. 

Originally an Australian production, the show has been remade for American TV by director David Zuckerman. Wilfred is still played by Australian actor Jason Gann, helping to retain some of the feel of the first version.

It may be off the wall, but Wilfred is also heartwarming and incredibly funny and well worth £14.99.
