Portlandia on Media Overload

Portlandia on Media Overload


Although I don’t have cable anymore, I do a pretty good job of keeping up with the TV that matters most to me. Aside from the occasional Top Chef episode that my roommates watch, I generally keep up with three or four TV shows, all of which I can watch online. One of the newer ones to enter my repertoire is Portlandia, the new comedy on IFC featuring Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen. So far the episodes have a sense of quirk and utter childishness that’s really appealing to me in a show just introduced. In today’s landscape you’ve got to swing for the fences a bit if you want to get noticed, and this show nails it for me. You can watch a bunch of free clips over at Hulu and at IFC.com.

Two of the ones that struck home most for me thus far are the “Have You Read” video…
