Storyline

The story of Ryan, a depressed man who believes he is getting nowhere in his life and plans to kill himself. In the middle of his attempted suicide, he is asked to watch his neighbor's dog, Wilfred, but Ryan can only see Wilfred as a real person instead of an animal that everyone else sees. As they begin to bond more and become friends, Wilfred teaches Ryan a life lesson about people, love, and living. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The main theme of Wilfred is composed by Jim Dooley. He chose to use broken and out of tune musical instruments as well as children and dog toys to help compose the melody. Jim received a nomination at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) in 2011 for Best Original Score for his use of unconventional devises. See more »

Quotes

Wilfred: All your questions will be answered, Ryan. Eventually. But the big answers are like those missing kids on the milk cartons. They don't want to be found. They'll turn up when they're ready.

Mind-blowing!
2 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show explores a whole new realm of comedy television. Erie, intelligent, dry, profound, thought-provoking, outrageous, subtle - all intertwined into one overall theme: PERCEPTION IS KEY; open your mind, face your fear, and take risks.

There are multiple levels of perception that come into play. The dynamics between Wilfred and Ryan are simplistic in the eyes of all but Ryan (just a man and a dog), yet complex and unfamiliar (Ryan's very personal and strange experience with hearing/seeing Wilfred's complex thoughts, moods, erratic actions, etc). Such dynamics are carefully orchestrated to depict how one's perception and outlook can truly change or save you. I have not yet seen the (original) Australian version of this show, but I must say - truly ingenious and inventive.
