Trivia

The main theme of Wilfred is composed by Jim Dooley. He chose to use broken and out of tune musical instruments as well as children and dog toys to help compose the melody.

I find it brilliant, but it isn't for everyone
21 August 2011 | by galaxygirl62296See all my reviews

Let me just say that this show gives me hope for humanity. With a creative and entertaining premise, "Wilfred" promises many great episodes to come. That being said, I can see why it may not agree with everyone, most notably the faint of heart. It is vulgar and offensive at times, I won't deny it. However, for anyone not offended by it's over-the-top, raunchy humor, it's pretty sure to please. Despite what less favorable reviewers seem to think, it does have it's moments of unexpected punch-lines and biting wit. While it's still early on in it's run, when it finds its footing I have little doubt it will become a cult classic.
