Review - Wilfred Season 1 Episode 8 Anger

Kristen is easily the most problematic character on the show and boy we she in full force. First off, why does she continue to ask Ryan for help? He's always a flake and screws up in one way or another, garnering scorn and angry comments each time. At the end of the episode, it is suggested that she goes to Ryan because she likes to yell at him and show how much better she is because her parents and Sneakers liked Ryan more. So basically she's a complete bitch who's been carrying problems from childhood? But these problems could be remedied if she were funny, as both Ryan and Wilfred have their unlikable traits balanced out by their funniness. Unfortunately, Kristen is hardly funny, always screeching and the like, so she's wholly unpleasant and unlikable.

Even if Kristen was annoying, the possession of Wilfred by Sneakers, Ryan's long-dead dog, pretty much made up for that. It's a little freaky, but stays true to the humor show. Things can go very bad during an episode, but everything is fine at the end of the episode--kind of.

Score: 8.5/10
