60 Favorite Television Characters: 27

I never thought that one of the deepest, most layered characters in the history of my television knowledge (and television in general, really) would be played by an Australian man in a dog suit. But that's just how it was. Not only was Wilfred, the character, incredibly entertaining to watch - but he was also so psychologically fascinating. That scene in the penultimate episode of the show when he is a completely devastated wreck because he thinks he failed Ryan and he eventually drives himself to death in the rampage he embarks on is a piece of acting that will always stay with me. You really felt for Wilfred because Wilfred felt for Ryan. And he felt for all of us.

  1. He was weird one, but he always looked out for Ryan, even if Ryan didn't realize it all of the time. Sad. :(
