Wilfred

Anyone else been watching Wilfred on FX? I am so glad to see the show come from Austrailian TV to the US.

Elijah woods does a great job, and the guy playing the dog is genius.
Definetly , one of the funniest shows on tv since Sunny.

Re: Wilfred

I've seen lots of previews for it when I watch Two and a Half Men, but I have yet to actually catch an episode.

Red face Re: Wilfred

I've watched it since it began here...It's a strangely fascinating show! There are moments when I question why I'm watching it, but yet I can't turn it off! The whole peanut butter thing was

The relationship between Wilfred and Ryan is both calming and unsettling at the same time! The bong stuff is hilarious! I will make my decision based on the entire first season, so far though, I really like it? (yes the question mark was intentional) I must interject that Louie is AMAZING!!!

Re: Wilfred

I've watched it since the beginning in australia, The australian version is certainly alot funner!!! (was in america for 5 weeks, got back yesterday, hence no posting, but i saw the first 3/4 episodes of the american)


Australian Wilfred is a bit more "down to earth".



For everyone's sake, download or buy it

Re: Wilfred

I thought it was pretty good, but it's pretty bizarre. I like The League and Louie much better (if I had to pick a favorite FX comedy).

Re: Wilfred

Worked my way through this recently. It's genius. Hoping to check out the original Oz one soon. The guy who plays Wilfred reminds me of Jim Jeffries so much.

Re: Wilfred

99.9% of Australian TV is complete rubbish and unwatchable, but the one thing we can get right from time to time is comedy. Wilfred is one of those freak occasions.

To all those stateside please check out the original 2 Aussie seasons as they are in my eyes better than the US show. Don't get me wrong I really like what they're doing with the US version though as they're taking in a really interesting direction. The Aussie show was just a lot more laid back.

Re: Wilfred

LOL I have watched it and it is funny.

A lot of tv here in England has become formula rubbish, basicaly cheap, voting and fly on the wall shows. celebrity cooking, celebrity dancing, Celebrity x, celebrity y. Just trash.

Where can I find the original aus version? I presume it was a big hit to remake the show?

Also the end of the series seemed to be the end of the show right? probably not another series to come?

Re: Wilfred

If you're looking for DVD copies of Aussie Wilfred you could try www.ezydvd.com.au or any of the other Aussie DVD online sites.




Or there are other methods...
