From LA Examiner: 'Wilfred' and 'Dexter' Advance Reviews; 'Whodunnit' Preview; 'Web Therapy' Comes to Paley...

For two seasons fans of FX's Wilfred haven't been able to shake, even if only in the back of their minds, the idea that maybe, just maybe, Ryan (Elijah Wood) as a few screws loose and that's why he sees Wilfred (Jason Gann) as a human-sized, upright, talking man in a dog suit instead of a cuddly little four-legged buddy. It wasn't until the end of season two that Ryan had to consider the same thing for himself, though, after realizing he was drawing Wilfred even as a child.

"Paley Center for Media to host an evening with Web Therapy in L.A."

On a personal level, we're not ones for therapy. But when it's Web Therapy with Dr. Fiona Wallice, we're all over it. Three minute sessions just doesn't seem like enough, so we were thrilled when Showtime picked up the online series to air as a half-hour comedy. But even still, there was something a bit impersonal about getting therapy through a screen, so the Paley Center for Media's announcement today that they're hosting an evening with Web Therapy in L.A. this July is just what the doctor ordered! ...
