Review of Wilfred

30 minutes

Wilfred the series was based on the original short film Tropfest winner of best comedy in 2002. This also starred its creators, Adam Zwar and Jason Gann, Gann winning best actor at the Tropfest awards. The story of Wilfred was based on a bad date that Adam went on. Each episode follows the story about a girl named Sarah, her dog Wilfred and her boyfriend, Adam. After their first date, Adam goes home with Sarah and meets her scruffy pet dog Wilfred, but Adam (as well as the audience) sees the latter as a human dressed in an unconvincing dog costume. The dog develops a grudge against his owner's new boyfriend and tests him to see if he is capable of being his new "daddy". Thus the unsuspecting Adam, who is keen on winning Sarah's heart, has Wilfred to contend with.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

This Wilfred is the predecessor of the US adaptation.
It was only two seasons that we were able to enjoy Adam Zwar as the depressed guy next door, who has great and hilarious conversations with his neighbours dog - whom only he can see as a man in a dog suit.
As this was (for my knowledge) the original version of this show, I would rate it a little higher as the US adaption. But that is just me and I give this little extra point for the idea behind it. But both versions are fun to watch and not a waste of time - especially if you wanna know what dogs really have to say!
