portlAndia’s FUNny, WEIRD HIPster LEGACY

To serve as a subtle reminder about Portlandia’s eighth and final season airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. on IFC starring SNL alum Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, here’s a “Flashback Friday” interview with the wildly gifted character actor “funny Freddy” (bonus points if you get the reference).

Hipsters deserve a fair amount of societal ridicule, but the simultaneous love letter cleverly written throughout Portlandia proves the paramount truth that the communities that can laugh together can live together.

And that (forgive me) will be a pretty hip legacy for Portlandia.

Forget a Bow & Put a Bird on Season 8

What’s going on in Portland, Oregon? That’s a common question everyone asks on a Wednesday, right?

I’m actually not sure, other than it’s been raining quite a bit lately. However, in TV’s hilarious mirror-reflection of the famous hipster city, there are mixed feelings these days. And it’s all because of the attached letters “ia” at the end of Portland.

Series Finale Idea: End on a live-shot with the show’s stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein surrounded by their Portlandia crew at Portland staple Voodoo Doughnut biting into a delicious new sugary treat inspired by and named after the show.

Season 8 is Portlandia’s final season and will premiere tomorrow night on IFC at 10 p.m.
