The Good Day Meme
Every day for 30 days, people should post one thing about their day that was good. No bad things should be mentioned in the vicinity of the meme. Even if your day was rubbish and all you've got is "I saw a pretty flower on my way home," then you still post about it in all of its pretty flower glory and forget the rest.
Part of why I'm not around LJ much is that this is really a fandom journal, and ever since Heroes imploded, I haven't had a single TV show that I've really been a fan of. Yes - it has seriously been YEARS since I've cared about a series. However I saw a commercial for a new show today that I can't stop thinking about. It's an FX series called Wilfred
which stars Elijah Wood, though I didn't recognize him at all now he isn't all Frodo-y. It's based on an Australian series of the same name, about a guy dating a girl with a dog named Wilfred. Everyone else in the world sees a regular dog when they look at Wilfred...but the guy sees another guy in a dog costume, who talks and behaves just like a person.
I cannot stop thinking about this show. IFC must have aired the original at some point, because you can watch full episodes of it here
. I'm sure the American version will be much sanitized; the first episode has an uncomfortable edge and the first two minutes involve Wilfred offering to share his bong. However, Jason Gann, who created, wrote and played the title character in the original, is also starring as Wilfred in the American version and has written at least one episode. And the Australian producers are involved along with David Zuckerman, who was with Family Guy
and King Of The Hill
, which I both like, so there's a chance it will wind up being different but good. So I'm happy to have something to actually look forward to watching!
