That's what Wilfred is all about. Wilfred the dog belongs to Sarah, and when sarah brings her new boyfriend, Adam, home Wilfred takes an instant dislike to him and sets about trying to get rid of him with gusto.
That is basically the premise for this very original Australian comedy. The acting is good and script sharp, and Wilfred has to be the most evil, manipulative, passive aggressive and cunning dog around, stopping at nothing to try make his competition for Sarah's love and attention look bad.
But making his rival look bad isn't the only thing Wilfred is interested in. He is also pretty fond of drugs, booze, pizza, nachos and dip, swearing his head off and dragging his butt across the rug.
Try as he might, poor Adam tries his best to build a bond with Wilfred, but Wilfred is having none of it, and continues his attempts to land Adam in hot water or even kill him every chance he gets. And oh yeah Adam sees Wilfred as a man... in a dog suit.
The thing is, no one else sees Wilfred like this and only Adam can see and converse with him. Only Adam knows what Wilfred is really like, and so the game of cat and mouse, or rather dog and mouse ensues.
It takes an episode or two to get going, but then that's true of most things on TV. Wilfred is a very original and pretty funny comedy that is well worth a watch. If you like your humour dark and dry you'll enjoy the eight episodes in this canine comedy's first season.
