While there’s plenty of
hilarious human-dog hijinks (verbalizing dog thoughts/characteristics
never gets old), it’s the deep, psychological undertones that give Wilfred a dark edge not found in many other current shows (and makes it a great lead-in to Louie). While American remakes of shows tend to dumb down or lighten up, our Wilfred
(with the same actor, Jason Gann, playing the title character) takes
even more disturbing turns than its Australian counterpart.
