Show just got cancelled. One of the top critical shows of 2017.
A sweet little show, low key and more smile-worthy than hilarious, Downward Dog won’t be for everyone. Animal lovers (count me in that group) are likely to find it adorable; cynics, unless they really, really love dogs, probably should stay away.
You don’t need to be a dog lover to love Downward Dog. There’s something universal about the sensation that comes from seeing the world a little differently.
Downward Dog obviously could have gone very wrong. Instead it gets almost everything irresistibly right.
Downward Dog is primarily for dog lovers. Only they can fully grasp what no one else does and which this new series so obviously does as well: Dogs are people, too.
The show has its fair share of problems out of the gate, but there’s an earnestness and sweetness to this story of a woman and her four-legged best friend that serves it well.
I don’t know how Downward Dog found its way onto a broadcast TV network’s comedy slate, but after steamrolling through the four episodes made available to critics, I’m just thrilled it did.
