Does anybody else watch this? Originally airing in Australia, it was recently adapted by FX for American tv and stars Elijah Wood as a guy who sees a dog (Wilfred, played by Jason Gann in both versions) as a grown man in a dog suit. Very absurdist comedy, each episode containing some sort of moral or overarching theme that can almost always be summed up in one word (yet the plots themselves are rarely that simple).

I think this promo pretty much sums up the feel of the series.

But if you need a bit more to understanding...

Been watching this show since it premiered on FX, and I'm hooked. I might just have to hunt down the Australian version.

I have been wondering, Ryan must be suffering from some sort of serious psychosis disorder. He has to be detached from reality to some extent, yet he is able to maintain a pretty social/normal reality life.

He hallucinates Wilfred as a man-dog, and talks to him and all that, and is even delusional. So, Ryan cant be just "lonely" he has to be suffering from some sort of severe mental disorder. Its not just him seeing a dog as some dude, there has got to be more to it than just that.

Haha i love this show. It's fuckin hilarious. I definitly wanna watch the australian version too.

And yea, I always think Ryan is insane. I mean...how does half of that shit happen anyway. Like how can a dog grab a bat and destroy his bedroom. It don't make sense.
