Review - Wilfred Season 1 Episode 3 Fear

I'm beginning to wonder how much Wilfred really has in terms of a solid premise for a successful show. "Fear" is a funny episode with Ethan Suplee as Ryan's crazy neighbor Spencer hanging out with Ryan. He's obnoxious and oblivious, and through Wilfred's guidance, Ryan learns to take control of the situation and strike back. This is all well and good, but part of me feels like the show could have a lot more exploration into Ryan and his condition. How much of Wilfred's behavior is completely imagined in Ryan's mind? Without explaining anything, it seems like the writers could practically have free reign on Wilfred's behavior and turn everything into a joke when there are serious problems with Ryan.

Score: 8.7/10
