Portlandia Season Two Curse

Portlandia, so over it?  Lost a little of its zshush hasn’t it?  I’ll give it a few more episodes before offering a full condemnation.  Fickle hipsters may not be so patient. 

2 Portlandia

Thank heavens Portlandia returns tonight with new a brand new season.As many of you know, Fred and Carrie churn out one of the cleverest sketch shows on the scene.  For those who haven’t yet visited Portlandia, grab your bike, catch up and catch on. New and improved formula now includes chunks of Eddie Vedder.  Yum.


Portlandia, the newish sketch show from Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen, strikes right at the heart of the Nirvana generation’s collective ennui.  My affection for this super clever show continues to grow even though I got a late start out of some misplaced sense of loyalty to Elisabeth MossDon’t miss “The Dream of The 90’s,” a nostalgic musical tribute to the most memorable qualities of last decade of the 20th century.  Portland, where “All the hot girls wear glasses.”

Enjoy a hilarious skewer of arbitrary cutesy animal placement on fashion and housewares in “Put a Bird on It.”

Portlandia.  Do investigate.  Don’t let the collective ambivalence about Fred Armisen’s short-lived marriage to our little Peggy Olson keep you from the funny.
