Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn
Wilfred is an American television comedy series which debuted on June 23, 2011, and is based on the Australian SBS One series of the same name. It stars Elijah Wood and series co-creator Jason Gann, reprising his role of the eponymous dog Wilfred. The series was adapted for the American FX by Family Guy veteran David Zuckerman.
The show follows a young man named Ryan (Elijah Wood) and his neighbor’s dog Wilfred (Jason Gann). In the opening episode, Ryan concocts a drug cocktail in order to commit suicide. After this failed attempt, Ryan’s neighbor, Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann), knocks on his door to ask him to look after Wilfred, whom Ryan sees and hears as anthropomorphic.
