4.0 out of 5 stars When man's best friend becomes your worst enemy..., 5 April 2012
This review is from: Wilfred - The Original Australian Season One [DVD] (DVD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
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.

Watched this a while back when it was on TV, the episode where Wilfred falls for that giraffe, was a good watch! Tried to vote this helpful but Amazon seems to have removed my voting privilages for some strange reason...

Giraffe? Was that the English version with Frodo in it? I don't remember a giraffe and there have been a few remakes of this - this is the original Aussie version. I did enjoy it though.

Have a good Easter mate :-)

Apologies, yes it was the one with Frodo in it recently on TV. Seems I can no longer vote your reviews helpful even though they influence alot of my purchases... Amazon cracking down some more it seems. Those knives aswell Truth, awesome, I really am becoming more kitchen proud!!!

I think Amazon filters votes. If you vote on one persons reviews, say, more than three times - I think the filters delete the votes.

I think it's because they think it's 'fan voting'. Glad you enjoy the reviews. Those Khun Rikon knives are wicked - you can often find them in TK Maxx in the Toon. That's where I get mine.

I haven't seen the Frodo one, but did quite enjoy this series. It's pretty dark.

PS: if you want some more good kitchen gadgets check out the OXO good grips stuff like the salad spinner, measuring jug and best of all, the folding chopping board.
