If a talking man-dog predicted your death...

Is anyone watching the FX comedy Wilfred?  It’s a dark and darkly funny show about a depressed man (Ryan played by Elijah Wood) who sees his neighbor’s dog as a man in a dog suit, even though everyone else sees him as a regular dog.  The two become friends and spend their time getting high and getting Ryan into trouble.  In last night’s episode, Ryan decides to volunteer at a retirement home, and it ends up looking like Wilfred has the ability to predict the patients’ deaths.

 ** Spoiler Alert **
After the media gets involved, there is Wilfred at the nursing homepressure for Wilfred to predict another death, and Ryan walks in on Wilfred smothering a patient with a pillow.  It was so funny (in a morbid way), especially because when Brian and I started this Saying Goodbye adventure, we discussed (half serious, half joking) turning our drama into a horror film by having the cat actually murdering the residents.  It was so great to see Wilfred actually executing (ha!) that idea.

If you’re interested in watching the episode, you can find it here.  It’s a show for mature audiences, so it’s probably not safe for work.
