Season Review-Wilfred Season 1 (U.S.)

Overall: 8-great
"Wilfred" is a dark show. It's not a lighthearted, 30 jokes per minute slapstick. It's simple on the top-talking dog, dog's owner, cute girl next door. However, the show started going into darker and less funny stories. Yet, I still enjoyed it. The pilot was laugh out loud funny, and the season hit its high point with the hilarious "Respect". The show could get boring at times, and some episodes were just flat out not funny. However, the characters kept it together. Elijah Wood did a great job, and Jason Gann was brilliant as Wilfred. While the show has its ups and downs, it is definitely one worth watching.
