Portlandia is one of those shows that people tell you about, but you never really bother to check it out.
“How good could it really be?”
Well, it can be pretty damn good. It’s a sketch-comedy show on the IFC, Independent Film Channel, that’s the channel with all those foreign movies that your hipster friends can’t start a conversation about any movie without mentioning twice. So Portlandia is about hipster life in Portland, Ore.
Characters Doug (Fred Armisen, Saturday Night Live) and Claire (Carrie Brownstein, singer, Sleater-Kinney) play a couple who choose to watch just one episode of Battlestar Galactica before attending a birthday party. Then their life begins a drastic slide.
