SCREEN SPLURGE: Wilfred

Welcome back to another recommendation of fantastic series to sit at home and watch all at once. If you were looking for something less frenetic than Rick and Morty I'm afraid you are in the wrong place. Wilfred is almost just as strange just in the opposite direction.
Wilfred is the story of Ryan (Elijah Wood) who after a failed suicide attempt starts seeing his neighbours dog as a man in a dog suit. Things get weirder when he has to look after the dog permanently. These madcap adventures start leading Ryan spiralling into insanity unsure of what is real and what isn't.
This is a strangely terrifying idea which Elijah wood plays with greta relish. Ryan starts to become completely isolated from everyone and starts to scare his remaining family as they worried he will end up in a mental home like his mother. Don't be mistaken however this is still firmly comedy albeit a dark one.
