Wilfred Review: Love Is a Wrecking Ball

by at .

Wilfred took a week off from evoking questions from the audience, and instead just let the viewers take in a fun half hour of laughs in "Stagnation."

Any time you let Jason Gann sing it's going to be funny, but Wilfy's love song for Phyllis, and subsequent hate song towards Ryan - "love is a wrecking ball" - was above and beyond normal hilarity.

Say Anything

It took until the second act for Wilfy to slide into his character for the week, but once he got there, the head over heels in love version might have been one of my favorites yet.

What wasn't to love anyway? Apparently her paws smelled like corn chips!

Comparing the breeding of dogs to inbred humans was brilliant. For dogs it's thought of as the highest of the highs to be bred with similar kinds. For humans, it's the lowest of the low, and sometimes in our history it's been joined at the hip with racism.

My favorite moment regarding that plotline was when Wilfy started comparing himself to Joffrey. They're both Mongols! You had to know it was coming, but still, hearing Wilfred's reaction to Phyllis once she wasn't in heat anymore was priceless. Yeah, she must look different in the daylight big guy.

I won't be sad to see Anne go. I wonder if I would enjoy Kristen Schaal more in live action if she wore a pink bunny ears hat? It certainly couldn't hurt.

With only two episodes left in the season, I'm looking forward to the writers getting back to the main arc of Wilfred Season 3. Give us some answers on that drawing, the symbol, and Wilfred in general, and we will be happy campers.

Don't give us anything, and we'll still be happy, because this show is darn hilarious every time out.

Check out our Wilfred Quotes section for our favorite lines of the series.  And then let us know what you thought of "Stagnation" in the comments section.
