Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Dorian Brown, Chris Klein, James Remar, Mary Steenburgen, Kristen Schaal Writers: Reed Agnew & Eli Jorne, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: September 5, 2013 WILFRED is a very unpredictable show – it’s not like this series about a man who sees his neighbor’s dog as a man in a dog suit is playing by any kind of rule book – but if there is one thing we could absolutely count on, it was […]Read On »

TV Review: WILFRED – Season 3 – “Stagnation”

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Kristen Schaal, Chris Klein Writer: Jason Gann, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 22, 2013 WILFRED can be gross and weird and a bunch of other stuff. Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes it’s just startling. However, “Stagnation,” an episode that combines rape jokes, eugenics and dog breeding is a bridge too far for this reviewer. Ryan (Elijah Wood) is getting enough in rent from boarder Anne (Kristen Schaal) that he’s not inspired to get […]Read On »

As Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann) and Drew (Chris Klein) prepare to walk down the aisle that’s been made for them in […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Chris Klein, Allison Mack Writer: David Baldy, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays at 10 PM Original Airdate: September 13, 2012 There are so many ways it could have happened that one hesitates to speculate, but somehow, the writers at WILFRED realized that, with characters Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann) and Drew (Chris Klein) planning their wedding, they would need a … ring-bearer. If you can’t figure out the in-joke here as it relates to Elijah Wood, who plays Ryan, […]Read On »

Exclusive Interview: WILFRED star Jason Gann talks Season 2 and more

There are plenty of other TV series with characters who are former lawyers, but FX’s WILFRED is the only one where the lead, Ryan (played by Elijah Wood), sees his neighbor’s dog Wilfred, played by Jason Gann, as a man in a dog suit. Not only that, but Wilfred keeps urging Ryan to do some questionable things – and then Wilfred generally urges Ryan to undo whatever it was before calamity strikes. There origins of WILFRED are almost as uncommon as its premise. It started as a half-hour short film written by Gann and Adam Zwar (with Gann as Wilfred […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Chris Klein, Don Swayze Writers: Reed Agnew & Eli Jorne, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays at 10 PM Original Airdate: June 28, 2012 Last week’s bridge episode notwithstanding, “Letting Go” is the official first episode of WILFRED’s second season. While we spend a fair amount of time wondering who is going to let go of whom, or what, we can actually track what’s happening here. Not only do we remain in a single reality throughout, but Wilfred […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Robin Williams, Steven Weber, Chris Klein Writer: David Zuckerman, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: June 21, 2011 Expecting answers out of WILFRED is becoming like expecting Lucy to hold the football for Charlie Brown. By the end of “Progress,” which is billed not as the start of Season 2 but as a special episode, we are as or more bewildered than Ryan (Elijah Wood). This is saying something, considering that the poor guy […]Read On »

Actually, few others got the recipe quite right, but the film brought forth two highly likable and funny sequels, 2001’s AMERICAN PIE 2 and 2003’s […]Read On »
