    awesome show...and a good lead in show to Louie (which is even better).
    i thought Elijah Wood would be stupid in a tv show but he actually plays the part well.

    LOVE Wilfred!

    Great concept. They pulled it off well. If you have a dog, you can relate. :thumb:

    It never gets old watching Wilfred pull tubes in the basement. :D

    Really good, but painfully awkward too often.

    Fun fact. The dude who plays the dog is the creator and also played the dog in the original.


    I think it's damn funny and makes for a good lead in to Louie.

    Wilfred is a great show. I also think childrens hospital and workaholics are fantastic too. Television suddenly rocks.

    Wilfred is such a great show, only problem is it's on the at the same time as Futurama. Since Futurama isn't on demand I'm always a week behind on Wilfred :(

    Some good lines from the last episode:

    Ryan: Eat s**t! Eat s**t!
    Wilfred: Again, your tone says insult, but what I'm hearing is a tempting offer.

    Ryan: You son of a bitch!
    Wilfred: How is that an insult? I've never understood that.

    Ryan: I'm not crazy.
    Wilfred: Said the man to the dog.

    OK, so I got the 2 seasons of the original and it's damn funny as well. I like the US version because the premise is slightly better and the hobbit is funnier, but the original is crazy.

    The Aussie version also has a few more folks in animal suits.

    Wilfred: So you think you are Dr. Dolittle now, do you? Dr. Do as little as f-ing possible maybe.

    So the 2nd season of the original is damn funny. The US version better make it past 2 seasons.

    I watched the first few episodes, and the dog smoking the bong thing I figured producers would think it would hold the show but I lost interest in it. Wood just don't hold my interest as an actor. The show just don't do it for me. I am a dog owner and I understand some of the stuff they do because of the way dog's behave, but I still just don't find it all that interesting to watch now and I gave up on it. GREAT concept for a show but just not well enough pulled off to make it look the real deal. Maybe show a real dog going down the street with wood and then when he speaks to Wilfred, he looks like the human version or even put him on all fours but it's just asking me to stretch the imagination to far so I don't watch it anymore. I didn't even know Futurama is still on.

    I think the premise of the US version is better (Hot neighbor has dog vs. girlfriend has dog) and I really like Elijah Wood as Ryan and neighbor interactions. But the original has a few more characters in costume (Wilfred's dad was awesome) and they can show a lot more (full frontal, crack use, etc.) The original is a lot darker, too.

    While both are funny, I like the US version better. See how long they can hold it, though.

    I know, that's what's so stupid about it for Christ's sake! It's not funny at all. It's stupid.

    Aren't you 13?
    You don't think it's funny because you don't get half the jokes.

    I'm about four times that age unfortunately and to me, it's just not funny. :hmm:
    If it get's a second season I'd be surprised. Gomer Pyle, now that was funny. Hogan's Hero's, that was funny! Get Smart, that was funny. But Wilfred, mmmnaaah not for me. Although I did laugh at the bong the first night, that kind of wore off.

    Not a fan of the ''new'' version.

    So who's still watching? It's funny, but the concept's kinda worn out already...?

    This part's not bad:


    Yes, I realized I'm bumping a thread with BIGHITR posts...
