    The second season is to explore Ryan's character and the vulnerabilities that enable him to see Wilfred as a biped.

    Wilfred, the vulgarian talking dog, [is] beginning to feel like the same lame joke repeated ad nauseam.

    The strain that comes with continuing to care about Ryan's sad-sack existence, one that's a direct result of his own insecurities and poor decisions, vastly outweighs the amusement packed away within the incidental laughs the series intermittently provides.

    Wilfred is much more pleasant and consistently enjoyable than Falling Skies, but that might be because the stakes are much lower.

    On paper, it all appears to be functional. In reality, I find myself uninterested in Ryan's minuscule problems and Wilfred's repeated attempts to hector or nag Ryan into taking more chances with his narrow little life.

    Wilfred takes the cake in comedy and adventure. Even though it has it's bad moments which puts me off sometimes, it still delivers the needed amount of good writing and nice detail. Expand

    This show is my favorite comedy on FX. It has been a great show since the first season and continues to be super funny and I am not over exaggerating. In this season Elijah Woods' character Ryan is starting to find out more of who he is by taking in Wilfred's shenanigans and applying it to what he should be doing in his outside life aside from Wilfred. Vulgar, Hilarious, and Heartfelt are what I think of when I watch this show. Buy this show on DVD it is an awesome show even if the critics don't think so. Expand

    I think most people watch this expecting comedy, and you do get comedy but there is also a dark side to this show that the comedy tends to make you forget until the question of "What is Wilfred?" is brought up. I think this is a great show and one of the more under rated ones at that. Expand

    It's not a typical comedy show. It probably won't make you cry from laughter by any means but it is definitely entertaining and different. Each episode has a main idea that it follows and most have a deeper meaning then just comedy. Expand

    Aside from the brilliant and daring opener, it is the same formula from the first season. Wilfred remains antics become a little more tiresome, but it is still often hilarious. 8.0/10 Expand

    Probably one of the best comedies on TV right now. It has dark, gross out moments. But they all feel appropriate and well timed. Still very funny and touching at times. It is dog humor for adults. If you have not seen season 1 and are on the fence about this series, buy it or at least rent it from Netflix, Redbox, PSN, etc and see for yourself. Expand

    Season 2 isn't as grounded as the 1st season; a lot of the humor is more ridiculous than smart, which isn't all bad, but I prefer quirkiness over silliness. It's still funny, Wood and Gann are still in top form as are the supporting/guest stars, but season 2 is a bit on the trippy side. Still a pretty good comedy show that definitely knows how to benefit from cliffhanger endings. Expand
