Before Wilfred came to FX, Wilfred was actually a highly rated drama/comedy on Australian TV. The show follows a man with low self-esteem named Adm who can’t believe he’s got the chance to date such a gorgeous women. The only problem is she has a dog named Wilfred. Now, the rest of the world sees Wilfred as just a dog while the Adam sees Wilfred as a man in a Dog suit.
Apparently Wilfred is around to make Adam as uncomfortable as possible so, he won’t get too close to his owner Sarah. Adam is forced to take a good hard look at his sanity. Why is he seeing a man in a dog suit when apparently no on else is seeing the same thing? It’s not long before he finds himself at war with a weed smoking, drinking, foul mouthed, but surprisingly knowledgeable 9 year old/ dog human.
This show is clearly not for those who are easily offended.While the premise does sound silly, each episode presents you with a new life lesson to be learned. While the FX series is funny, the Australian (original) version is Grade A entertainment.
Season 1 and 2 are available for streaming on Hulu.
