Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Dwight Yoakam Writer: Jacob Young, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: August 15, 2013 There aren’t too many shows that can get away with jokes about castration. GAME OF THRONES and TRUE BLOOD show the act, but it’s not meant to be funny. To be fair, the WILFRED episode “Distance” doesn’t actually have emasculation, so levity is a little more possible here. How exactly does Ryan (Elijah Wood) get from obsessing over a crayon […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Fiona Gubelmann, Jenny Mollen 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: June 27, 2013 On the face of it, it seems like it could be risky to put the character Wilfred (Jason Gann), a dog that his human friend Ryan (Elijah Wood) and the audience see as a man in a dog suit, in scenes with real canines. The episode “Sincerity” proves otherwise, as having real dogs behaving like themselves just underscores the projection […]Read On »

Stars: Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, Dorian Brown, Barry Watson Writer: David Baldy, series created by Jason Gann & Adam Zwar, adapted for American television by David Zuckerman Director: Randall Einhorn. Network: FX, Thursdays @ 10 PM Airdate: June 27, 2013 “Suspicion” is one of WILFRED’s frequent forays into subject matter so weird and so not-to-be-found-anywhere-else that the question is less a matter of whether it’s funny or not than where it’s going. As is often the case when the show suits up and jumps out of the plane into the wild topical yonder, we get a bit more structured closure […]Read On »
