    Smile Wilfred

    There is a show out called 'Wilfred', about a guy who sees his girlfriends dog as a bong smoking, beer drinking, cigarette huffing guy in a suit. There are two versions, the original Australian one that was first aired on SBS in 2007, and the US version, which has only just been released and will be playing on Channel 11, I think Tuesday nights at 9.30.

    Both shows have Aussie actor Jason Gaan (used to play the cricketer in one of those skit shows that were around a few years ago) as Wilfred, the psychotic dog.

    Whoever made this show clearly understands dogs, it's quite hilarious to have an explanation of why they do things they do.

    The two versions are different from each other in storyline, and different in general. I found the US version funnier, it's a lot lighter and more a sit-com style. They successfully transferred it over though, it's not another Kath and Kim disaster.

    Wilfred's reasoning and actions are great to watch, if you have some spare time you should check it out

    Haha, I saw this last night. It was darn funny! Plus I love Elijah Wood (who plays the human)

    Totally random but yes there are a lot of moments where you think "MY DOG DOES THAT!"

    Elijah Wood is great, I agree. There is definitely a stronger storyline in the US version.

    I love it when he digs the holes with a shovel!

    I could never work out if the girl was deluded about Wilfred or the "BF" was.

    That dog/man gets away with all sorts of things a human never would. Reminds me of David Helfgott, the mad piano player.

    Hya, there is much speculation about it. I think all interaction with Wilfred is in Ryan/Adam/the bf's head. None of it is 'real'. The gf sees an actual dog, as does everyone else. He gets away with it because he's a dog Part of the story is how crazy the gf is!! The Aussie one annoys me.

    I like the Australian one- it's quite dark at times
