Based on an Australian television show of the same name, Wilfred is basically a story about a grown man who is minding his neighbour’s dog who happens to stand upright and talk. Everyone else sees Wilfred, the dog’s name, as a golden retriever while Ryan (played by Elijah Wood) sees him as an Australian man (played by Jason Gann) in a dog suit. To say this is steeped in the absurd is an understatement. It is definitely up for the award of weirdest show on television. So this is a man’s best friend or buddy show with a twist. A twisted twist.
