Default Wilfred (TV Show on FX)

Anyone else watching this show? I saw the trailer for it, and was instantly interested in it. I'd post it, but i'm at work and YT is disabled. After the first 3 episodes, it's even funnier than I thought it would be.

It's about a neurotic guy (Elijah Wood) who has a hot next door neighbor with a dog. Everyone else sees the dog as a normal dog, but Wood's character sees him as a talking, weed-addicted man with an English accent in a dog suit. The first three episodes have been about the dog getting him in really shitty situations. I'd post more about it, but you really need to see it to get the full effect. I highly, highly recommend it to the 420 friendly posters here...even if you don't partake, it's worth a lot of laughs.

It's on FX every Thursday at 10:00pm.

I dont see how it should be watched by stoners.I mean they do smoke weed but there is hardly any stoner jokes.

Anyways ive watched all 3 of the first episodes and they are all funny as hell.

this. i like it. it's funny how they do the contrasting reactions of everyone who sees him as a dog and how elijah wood sees him as a person.

I'm really digging it too. It's surreal. And it's a good fit with Louie. It feels like an extended version of one of Louie's surreal asides.

The thing is is that it's got enough genuine humor, and thoughtfullness in it, the dog is actually funny, and has moments of sounding like a philosopher of sorts, that it actually makes the dog gimmick seem like background, and then when it pops up, it's more funny. It's not like they're exclusive making crotch licking jokes. They have those moments, but they're spread out to the point that I almost forget myself that he's a dog until something comes up.

This show is great, well the Australian version is anyway, havent seen the new one, but the guy in the dog outfit is the same as in our version, and he was the writer too, so I imagine it will be good.


Check out the Australian version if you can track it down.

I like the show, though I don't think it's that funny. Just a good show though.

Case in point about my feeling that his being a dog isn't really a crutch.

In the episode where he tells Ryan that the girl has a dick, then passes out, only later to explain that he was gonna say that she has a dick ... boyfriend. That was funny. Regardless of him being a dog. Had he just been her jerk roommate or something, it still would've been funny. His being a dog had almost no bearing on the material. But then he'll do some dog thing too, and that becomes funnier because of it's not being the whole point of the writing.
