Willfred

I'm surprised there hasn't been more "furry buzz" about the new series "Wilfred" which is going to debut on FX later this month. Well, I guess I shouldn't say "new" series since it was already a show in Australia and the same guy who played the dog in that series plays it in this series. I'm just amazed that they got Elijah Wood to play the primary human character. Anyway...it looks interesting. I've watched a few clips from the Australian show on YouTube and it looks like there could be many open-faced suits used in the show. Well, that is if they keep the same format which they probably will since there is a severe lack of creativity when it comes to t.v. script writing. Does anyone remember the American version of "Fawlty Towers" with Bea Arthur playing the John Cleese character? It was horrible! The few episodes I saw were direct copies of the classic British show. I will say that we did improve the British version of "The Office" although Ricky Gervais WAS pretty damn funny. HERE is a link to the original short film "Wilfred" from which both shows were/are based. And here's an incredibly funny clip from the Aussie show with a possum suit.
