What, no thread exists yet for this show??

New season starts next Thursday.

Last night they had a 15-minute tease for the new season, "The Celery Incident". TERRIFIC!

This show is great. Been watching it for several seasons now. My kind of humor.

Fred Armisen is going to be the house band leader on the new Seth Myers Late Night show, with time off when he needs to shoot this show..

Welcome aboard, fellow Portlandia Fan!smile.gif

FWIW, we did have a Portlandia thread around here, but it seems to have vanished.confused.gif
Maybe a Mod can help us find it?

As an Oregonian, it's must watch TV for me.
However, the humor is perfectly transferable to other geographic locations around the country.
Its outrageous politically incorrect humor and sly social commentary is great....nothing on the tube is quite like it.

I have watched every episode, of course, and bought each of the seasons on the reasonably priced BDs.

I DVRed last night's episode and will watch tonite with my favorite amber ale.wink.gif

Different strokes I guess.  As a life long Portland Metro area resident it just seemed dumb to me.  I tried to watch it a couple times when it first came on and lots of other people apparently like it, but it was painful for me.

I can understand your sensitivity to the series.
After all, it does skewer some elements of Portland.

The "skewering" that goes on in Portlandia can, and should, be applied to other communities in the WV.
In that way, I think it's fair.

And it isn't JUST the WV, it's also applicable to other states and towns as well.

BTW, I have lived in Oregon for 35 years, mostly in the mid WV, but have spent some time in Portland too.

It actually caused us to start looking at Portland as alternative to the soul-crushing realities of the SF Bay Area (where families work 2 jobs just to afford rent on a 2 bedroom ranch house in a crappy school district, you spend 3 hours a day in traffic, and you never see your friends because they're scattered over a 50 mile radius). I've also found that the state of Oregon doesn't try to make your life as miserable as possible like CA does (car registrations that last for 4 years, friendly cops that aren't looking to pull you over for any possible cause, etc...)

Since we moved here, we've found brew pubs with play areas for the kids, movie theaters that serve food and beer/wine and provide baby sitting services, were able to buy a decent house for an affordable price, and I actually found a restaurant that served Pappy Van Winkle bourbon (if that existed in the Bay Area, all the Facebook/Google douchebags would descend en-masse, and drink it all in one night).

It's a virtual paradise for young adults and families!

I spent the first 10 years of my life in the Bay Area.
I went back for a little sightseeing this last summer and couldn't believe how horrible the place has become.
NO WAY I would ever consider re-locating there.

It's VERY laid-back here compared to other places.

Great to see another quality addition to the City of Roses....WELCOME!


One of these days us Oregon AVSers will have to get together for a toast and an evening of cinema at some place like this:

I'll have access to a 29-page .pdf beer menu of ChurchKey in a few weeks! (not to mention the draft beers.)
http://churchkeydc.com/documents/BBCKONLINEBOTTLELIST2-21-14.pdf

Sadly, the beers I'm interested in are $30 - $60/each rolleyes.gif
(I factored in a $300 bar tab for 6 beers)

Off topic. Sorry DSperber biggrin.gif

Growing up in Eastern Washington and having relatives in and near Portland (Camas) I was long familiar with the city before I spent a month in 1977 playing a gig at the "Eat Now" chicken restaurant and bar in Vancouver. So I often traveled across the bridge into Portland and saw movies at the art house near the college campus. One thing even the locals say about Portland is that it is very "provincial" and that is true indeed. Love the fun poked and the skits about competition between Portland and Seattle (another quirky city that I have lived in). In Oink territory I had relatives who lived in Albany. Some Seattle friends who loved to vacation at Cannon Beach now have bought a retirement home there.

Never lived in the Pacific northwest, but I did spend a fair bit of time in Seattle back n the 80's for work. Lovely area.

I just get a kick out of the assorted recurring characters played by Fred and Carrie, along with their costumes, hair/makeup, personalities, etc., not to mention their comedic delivery style. I'm a fan of this type of humor (also a fan of the original British "The Office").

I saw the cbs piece this morning and i will not be checking this show out now. Really does look like bad SNL skits. Not sure if that's possibly since SNL hasn't been funny for quite some time.

I beg to differ. SNL is almost unwatchable now and has been for a long time with the exception of usually some digital recordings. Portlandia is more like those digital recordings. There is some hit and miss element but some really good stuff there. It is a fairly short show (30 minutes with commercials) so not much of a time investment. The humor is a bit dry so if that's not your cup of tea . . .

Jerry. Just remember. Its not a lie . . . if you believe it. GC

I guess I should have said "the classic structure" of an SNL skit from days gone by.

FWIW, I don't think I have watched SNL since Chris Farley died.

I haven't watched SNL since even further back. Some shows just grow tiresome, even if they were really good.

Check out these skits:

Plus having Carrie Brownstein from Sleater-Kinney and Wild Flag is pretty good.

She would be the only real reason to watch for me.  I went to a couple SK shows back in their day and although Corin Tucker's unusual warbling vocals were cool, Carrie was the best thing about the band IMO.

Carrie Brownstein was born in Seattle and according to a friend played in a band out of Olympia (though IMDB sez Portland). The humor on Portlandia is very Portland so I don't see too many locals taking offense because they joke about it that way themselves. Same with Seattlelites. My experience of moving permanently to California is that people are more snobbish and uptight here.

California has NOTHING to be snobbish about.....
