Sketch comedy featuring a SNL player and a musician. Interesting trio of entertainment, I say. This is the brainchild of Fred Armesin of Saturday Night Live and Sleater-Kinney member Carrie Brownstein. Portlandia is an altered reality version of the town of Portland, Oregon. That is if Portland was stuck in the 90s and filled with politically correct people. While watching it you’ll almost feel like you are having a weird dream. Whatever you think of it you have to admit that there is nothing like it presently on television. Keep your eyes peeled for plenty of guest star appearances like Jason Sudeikis and Tim Robbins.
