I highly doubt the american version of this show will be anywhere near as funny as the Australian, simply because of the humor wont be able to transcribe.t That said it would be worth checking out. Also why is it that shows need to be re made?, can they not just get the rights to the original and then play them?


I remember this episode were Wilfred was just smoking cones on the couch, it was like looking into the mirror with me and my dog, chilling.

I think they remake shows to tweak the humour so it does translate...also american studios think american's are too stupid to understand other accents, according to Ricky Gervais at least.


I like the original but the US remake holds up, I think the fact they kept Jason Gann has a lot to do with that.

Its not that we're too stupid to understand other accents, I understand people's accents fine.

The slang dosent match up, as in they might say something that would be seen hilarious in AUS but over here that will go over our head.

Just like a lot of our jokes might go over their head.
