What drivel.

Never heard of this before, watched a few minutes of it, that was enough for me. Might be someone's cup of tea certainly isn't mine.

I gave up on Portlandia long ago, but I still like the first two seasons. I think I initially gave up on it (or should have) during season 3. Every once in a while, I'll try watching a more recent episode and decide all over again that I just don't find it consistently funny anymore. Seasons 1 and 2 may also be streamed through the OverDrive online resource available through Hennepin County Library.

For the most part, l love this series. So far, Season 4 is my favorite . Haven't watched Season 5 yet but looking fwd. to it. I love that Carrie and Fred can play so many different roles. HIghly recommended.

Ok, I get it, Millenials and the like are concerned(as am I) about things like "Fair-Trade" and "organic", etc. THOSE are merely observations, but not actually funny or clever. I'm just picturing these writers at their table reads, howling at their own comedic "brilliance".

I couldn't get this to work on my dvd. I so wanted to check it out and see if Portland was anything like Seattle's trailer trash grunge liberal population. Cos' let me tell you, there is nothing scarier than a corrupt grunge liberal - and Seattle's full of them - in the police department, the city council, and just about everywhere you look where there are people in power. Don't trust the city ranking polls or publications (like Rand McNally or those other annoying pubs). Yes, there is a lot of natural beauty here. But a group of corrupt liberals, with their own agendas, can negate the beauty. Nothing really funny about it if you live here.

Sad they don't have captions.

However, pretty funny show based on Portland. I have lived here my whole life and I don't find it offensive at all. Just good natured humor. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are hilarious in the 'Women and Women First' bookstore, filmed at the feminist bookstore 'In Other Words'.

I laughed so hard when Carrie's character said "Do I look like I work for tips?" would reccomend this if you want a good laugh.

Disappointed... This was clearly overhyped

Tired of it after 2 episodes and watched 3 more hoping it would grab me--it didn't. The rare funny moments were/are lost in a sea of overdone, forgetful silliness. It's a shame because I feel the actors are truly talented-especially Fred Armisen.

Droll Pacific Northwest PC/Scene commentary, but very few out loud laughs.
