The Trippiest Black Comedy Starring a Former Hobbit



Dog may be man's best friend, but the relationship doesn't usually involve existential conversation and big, fat joints—except on Wilfred. In FX's remake of a hit Australian series, stars Elijah Wood as a manic depressive who believes his neighbor's pet is a beer-swilling buddy in a dog costume. It might sound like a live-action Family Guy rip-off, but in this case Fido plus Frodo adds up to an engaging, if dark, brand of comedy, and Wood's dry, damaged humor shows he's come a long way from the Shire.

Premieres on FX tomorrow, Thursday, June 23.
