The comedy about a suicidal man (Elijah Wood) who befriends a dog who appears to him as a dour Australian man in a dog suit (Jason Ganz) was one of last summer's more pleasant surprises. I liked the pilot but worried it would be a one-joke series; instead, the chemistry between Wood and Ganz only got better as the series went along, and if the season also got darker in time, it was fascinatingly so. And that first season ended on a bunch of cliffhangers and questions I look forward to seeing the writers try to answer when it comes back.
