Wilfred was one of the more offbeat television shows to come out during the 2010s. Nevertheless, the series was well received critically and earned itself a dedicated fan base, which allowed it to run for a total of 49 episodes, spanning four seasons between 2011 and 2014.
Based on the Australian TV series of the same name, Wilfred follows a manically depressed man named Ryan (Elijah Wood) who, as he is about to commit suicide, is unexpectedly asked to take care of his neighbour’s dog. Postponing his self-inflicted demise, Ryan hesitantly accepts the request and takes Wilfred (the dog) in. Bizarrely, Ryan starts seeing Wilfred as a man (Jason Gann) in a dog suit. Sure enough, this talking dog-man, despite being a bit of an asshole, imparts valuable tough love life-lessons on Ryan and a weird friendship blossoms (what is it with Elijah Wood and taking advice from grown men dressed in animal cosplay?).
Wilfred is a funny, yet surprisingly heartfelt piece of television which, unfortunately, not as many people are aware of as there perhaps should be. If it sounds like the kind of show that you could get into then look no further; thanks to the fabulous people from a film company, we have a DVD boxed set to give away which contains the entire Wilfred series (Seasons 1-4) so you can experience it for yourself (or revisit it if you are already a fan).
