Martin is the lonely, philosophical type. Martin is also a dog. That doesn't stop him from making observations on the life of his owner, struggling millennial, Nan, and the complexity of relationships in the 21st century.
Downward Dog taps into the soul of an animal, illustrating the frustration, the confusion, and the wonder of a (talking) house dog. Made to entertain the kid in all of us, this story line is all grown-up. It's a bowl-of-Cheerios for dinner and a what's-on-tv kind of entertainment. 5* if you love talking dogs and regular normal people.
Maybe make it a little more kid friendly. But I love the series! Really funny 😂👍
Funniest show in years!

This might be the funniest show on the planet. If you have ever owned a dog, this will have you laughing out loud. It is brilliant and perfect.
Just...yikes. How did this drivel end up on the air?
i love the "talking dog genre" but this show has major issues. out of the gate it failed in a formal level because of the vfx animation of the dog's mouth moving as it speaks. are we supposed to think the dog is literally speaking? no, because his human, played by the talented allison tollman, can't hear him speak. mr. ed is the only taking animal that ever pulled off speaking irl (i.e. allowing the audience to suspend their disbelief in order to go along with the premise that, not only is this animal thinking like a human, but also speaking like one too.) it also just looks really cheesy. can't get past it.
