Terrible, I'm pissed at myself that I missed the interesting looking Wilfred for this. Won't make this mistake next week.

Unrelated, but Wilfred's one joke has already worn thin one episode in, I can't imagine watching this again. It doesn't help that I remember watching the original Australian short film from many years ago on Sundance, so the joke's already old now.

Wilfred was bad, which was what I expected. I liked the first few minutes before the titular character shows up, and Wood as a depressed out of work lawyer would have probably made a better series.

I thought the same thing. "Huh, this isn't too bad..." And then that obvious repeating gag shows up and in addition to the dull dog jokes makes tired pot jokes and bathroom humor jokes and... God, there's twelve more episodes of this? Really?

Loving the fact that Comedy Central's ad department is embracing this meme.

That's great.

Have the new season episodes been any good?

They've been okay so far. Nothing great though.

There have been about two truly great episodes per 13-episode season lately, and even at that percentage, it's sad to see this show go. Still a better batting average than The Simpsons since Season 11 or so.

Sad Futurama dog to become much less sad with addition of Seth MacFarlane's voice

You know, I thought that final season of 13 episodes was a great send off for the show. I wonder how clear it was that the show was going to be cancelled, because compared to many of the previous 'final' episodes of the show where the goodbye felt a little more arbitrary, really this entire season felt like an extended send off for all of the characters, even to the extent of feeling a bit fatalistic and death obsessed at times. There seemed a lot of care taken to provide fan service by building scenes to involve almost all of the significant secondary characters, from Lrrr and Jrrr to Nixon and Calculon (and even Geunter and Dr Banjo!), and there were even many nostalgic returns to familiar locations, from the sewer mutants and Robot Hell to the porn-loving alien's shop and back to New Years Eve 1999 yet again, all seeming to build towards the return trip to the Moon in the final episode, mirroring Fry's first trip to outer space.

It also has one of the best final lines for an endlessly rewatchable TV series: "What do you say? Do you want to go around again?"

In what is quite possibly the best thing Donald Trump's campaign has ever inspired, Billy West has been reading Trump quotes in Zap Brannigan's voice and posting them on Twitter.

Billy West is perhaps our nation's most underappreciated treasure.
