Season: 3 out of 5 stars
Extras: 2.5 out of 5 stars
After I was exposed to the first season of this show, which I watched straight through in one day, I was super excited for the second season. I have to admit though, I was a little let down. When I interviewed Jason Gann (read here), he said the second season was a different, a little darker but I feel it lost a little bit from the first season. Don’t get me wrong it is still pretty funny and completely out-there. I have a feeling after interviewing Elijah Wood (read here) for season three that it is coming back with a vengeance. If you haven’t seen this show, I would recommend checking out the first season before you just into this one but it is still worth checking out.
Official Premise: Elijah Wood and Jason Gann return for another fearlessly funny season of Wilfred…the story of a dog and his man. Following the first season’s cliff-hanger finale, Season Two finds Ryan making a fresh start with a real job and a new girlfriend. But with Wilfred’s help, Ryan discovers he still has a lot to learn about life, including ‘squishy’ viral videos and the ongoing cuteness war between dogs and babies. Get your paws on Season Two — with a shocking season-ending revelation that will change everything.
The Blu-ray presentation is impressive for this season, it is on par with the first season. As this show is a straight forward black comedy, the 1080p transfer doesn’t blow you away but looks great. Same goes for the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, which works with the jokes and hilarious dialogue. The special features are a little light even less than the first season Blu-ray. We get some decent deleted scenes and a blooper reel. There are is a new short called “Stay” and a featurette “News at Noon with Jenna”. There is also a fun “Wilfred/Ryan Mash-up” included. Decent extras but I would have loved to see more specifically with commentary tracks, which I asked for in my review for the first season Blu-ray review (read here). Oh well, I can hope for season three 😉
