Portlandia Season 2 Underway

the show with the crunchiest theme song on television, Portlandia, started their second season on IFC, last Friday. for those not familiar with this off-beat sketch comedy show, it stars SNL’s Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) adding to it’s coolness, it is shot on location, in Portland, Oregon.


Carrie runs into a guy (Andy Samberg) she used to go to camp with, who works as a bartender. he makes her a mixed drink, which Fred is convinced means that Andy’s in love with her. she makes him a mix tape, but they return to the bar, to find that Andy has taken a job in So Cal. they follow Andy to his new place of employment, Windjammerz, where Carrie reconnects with him. along the way, they attempt to order some food at a restaurant, but the waiter (Kumail Nanjiani) is more interested in telling them all about the menu.

other sketches include:
opening sketch “we can pickle that!”
Carrie and Fred’s adventures in river rafting
Carrie and Fred take an overbearing approach to their son’s “Ban the Bag” petition
the Women & Women Bookstore needs their air conditioning fixed
