It was weird. But it's also hilarious -- and even a bit insightful.

Nov 13, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a bizarre show that isn't without interest, charm or humor, but which in the end may be a little too much trouble to follow.

Jun 23, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Gann can be irresistibly gross at times while Wood is good at being hapless. Together they sometimes make quite a comedy team. Almost as good as Turner & Hooch.

He [Wood] is the perfect straight man in this offbeat, surreal, crude, and occasionally touching series

Jun 23, 2011 | Full Review…

It's crude and hilarious and clearly aimed at a young male audience.

FX likes comedies with a dark streak, and this one certainly qualifies.

It's an edgy and smart dark comedy, and after just one half-hour episode, I'm hooked. It's bizarre, but in a good way.

Though I'm intrigued by the complexities of Gann's character, I'm not entirely sold on Wilfred just yet, either. But I'll be watching nonetheless: Wilfred is too mind-bendingly strange to ignore.

After the debut episode, I was ready to drop Wilfred off at the pound.

Nov 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Practically cocking its leg and spraying its self-conscious wackiness all over you. Yet for all its over-eagerness to prove how crazy and out there it was, Wilfred has a puppy-dog charm that is hard to resist.
