News & Interviews for Downward Dog: Season 1
The episodes blend Nan's issues with Martin's issues beautifully, and, for the most part, quietly. There's not much farce here; just dry, wise observations about humans and dogs.
A sweet little show, low key and more smile-worthy than hilarious, Downward Dog won't be for everyone. Animal lovers (count me in that group) are likely to find it adorable; cynics, unless they really, really love dogs, probably should stay away.
You don't need to be a dog lover to love Downward Dog. There's something universal about the sensation that comes from seeing the world a little differently.
Downward Dog obviously could have gone very wrong. Instead it gets almost everything irresistibly right.
Downward Dog is primarily for dog lovers. Only they can fully grasp what no one else does and which this new series so obviously does as well: Dogs are people, too.
