Wilfred 206 Review- The Legend of Rex and Lady

Wilfred- "I brought dessert! I found it in the most charming little French bakery's dumpster."
Wilfred is the best comedy of the summer, and "Control" was a perfect example of why. It wasn't the funniest episode of this second season, but there were so many humorous and interesting things going on during the half hour that it was tough not to smile throughout.

Sure, you have to enjoy the awkward or the dark, like every interaction between Amanda and Jenna, or Wilfred's entire affair with a drunken Bear, but that's what Wilfred is about. That's why we love it.

Wilfred's long-winded tale about Rex and Lady was absolutely hilarious. The way that Jason Gann worked in the old "this story is actually about me" bit was perfect. I never saw it coming, and because neither Wilfred nor Ryan made a big deal about his mess up, the joke was even funnier. Calling back to it later on with Drew missing his Lady put the whole thing over the top.

At the end of his story though, Wilfred made the point to Ryan that "You can't control relationships. You have to let things happen naturally." Of course Ryan didn't understand that concept until the end of the episode, and thank God, because his lack of understanding made for quite a few hilarious situations.
To read the rest of my review of last night's Wilfred, head over to TV Fanatic.

Wilfred 206 - "Control"


  1. When you said that this is the best comedy of the summer you weren’t joking. After my coworker at Dish told me to watch Wilfred a million times I finally decided to check it out. I just watched my first episode on My Dish Remote Access app and I think I have fallen in love. I have been watching other shows with my app but this one has just moved to the top of my list. Something about a crazy man, seeing a man in a dog suit, who imagines that a stuffed bear named Bear needs a crane to sponsor him for therapy makes my cheeks hurt.

  2. You have to give credit to Dish for their creative advertising style. Comments on random blogs that actually have weight behind them? Love it.
