QUIRKY. UNUSUAL. BIZARRE. But most of all, different and unpredictable. I’ve never been to Portland, Oregon, but that doesn’t matter. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein play a number of roles in their 25 minute episodes in a send up of the people of Portland from pretentious foodies to feminism. Some skits are hit and miss, but even the ones that aren’t obviously funny still have an effect of WTF? which in itself generates amusement.

I watched the whole series on Netflix and having been a bit skeptical to begin with really enjoyed dipping in and out of it as each episode is quite short. If you’re sick of watching predictable comedy try Portlandia out, you’ll definitely maybe like it, I kind of guarantee it – especially if you like off the wall productions like Flight of the Conchords.

    I love this show! And was just going to recommend Flight of the Conchords until I saw you already mentioned it.
