Editorial Reviews

Portlandia is IFC's hit sketch comedy series created, written by, and starring Fred Armisen (SNL) and Carrie Brownstein (WILD FLAG, Sleater-Kinney). The show is driven by a series of hilarious character-based shorts all of which take place in "Portlandia", the creators' dreamy and absurd rendering of Portland, Oregon where 90s culture reigns supreme and political correctness is all the rage.

As we're already into Season Three of the IFC hit series "Portlandia," I'll just let you know what comes with the DVD release before I speak about the show itself. Most likely, you are already familiar with the idea behind the Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen sketch show, so this will save you some time if you are only interested in whether or not the DVD/Blu-ray are worth the investment.

The two disc set features the ten regular episodes of Season Three plus the Winter Special that aired a few weeks before the season began properly on IFC. In essence, therefore, there are eleven self-contained shows for approximately 4 hours of programming in total.

Included on DVD/Blu-ray:

Winter Special: Winter in Portlandia

Regular episodes: (1) Take Back MTV, (2) Missionaries, (3) Nina's Birthday, (4) Squiggleman, (5) Off the Grid, (6) The Temp, (7) Soft Opening, (8) Alexandra, (9) No-Fo-O-Fo-Bridge and (10) Blackout

Bonus Features: 2 Deleted Scenes and tours of Portland with recurring guest star and comedian Kumail Nanjiani.

"Portlandia," first and foremost, starts with a fantastic idea. Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have created a comedy that speaks to a very specific portion of the population. In a perfect recreation of indie hipster angst, the show skewers a world in which people are consumed by political correctness. The beauty of "Portlandia" is that it both embraces the self-importance, superiority, and silliness of this extreme sect while poking gentle fun with it. It really is spot-on in showcasing this dichotomy and Portland stands as an ideal muse for illustrating this too cool for school mentality.

Portlandia is brilliant fun. Fred Armisen is a comedic genius. Don't miss a single episode from the beginning, especially the one about going to the farm to see where the organic chicken at the restaurant was raised.

In an interview, Fred Armisen (one of the two stars and creators of this show) said that they were inspired by shows like 'Game of Thrones' to have an overarching narrative to the season that would keep people 'tuning in next week.' I feel like this really worked against the vibe of the show. A few narrative threads run throughout the season, like Fred & Carrie's roommate, the Bed & Breakfast, and the situation with the mayor. Not bad in and of itself, but it really undermined the past feel of the show without making up for it in some other way.

The season starts off strong. I really enjoyed the first two episodes. I didn't start thinking something was 'off' in the show until later on, but it definitely crept in there. I feel like a good batch of two or three episodes could be made from the best material of the remainder of Season 3 after the first two episodes. This isn't a great batting average for a show that was easily the funniest new show on television for the first two seasons.

I know this will be downvoted by hardcore fans of the show and hurt my reviewer rating, but the fact remains that hardcore fans of the show aren't on the fence about this - indeed they have already purchased it. I am writing this review for people who do not already own a copy and who's opinion isn't already made up.

If you want to see the cute idea of stop motion rats taken to a point where they are featured not once in a charming aside but six or seven times, this is the season for you. If you are willing to sacrifice fresh, interesting premises for the sake of filling out a bland, over-arching 'narrative,' you'll love watching Fred & Carrie deal with their new roommate.

The reason I am giving this season 1 star is not related to the shows content. As usual, Portlandia delivers non-stop laughs poking fun at the NW. I am giving this 1 star because there are COMMERCIALS in this content! Granted, they are annoying 30 second IFC ad spots for upcoming new shows, but they are still commercials. It started the same way with my old cable provider and their on-demand content. First it was these ad spots for upcoming shows, then full blown commercials. Dear Amazon.com, I am NOT paying a premium for you to stream episodes with commercials! I find this very disappointing and will likely not purchase this content in the future.

There are some great sketches in Season 3 but they are in the middle of a lot of bland, overdone scenes with the same characters.

so excited, but I m only on #2 episode...it appears a little more contrived...I know what you're thinking, it IS meant to be contrived...but I feel that it has had a subtlety that somehow gets lost when the material is under pressure to fit into expected molds...we'll see how it progresses. Of course, I love it anyway, what else can come near? Arrested Dev?

As always, Armisen and Brownstein are hilarious and flawless. Their characters and sketches keep getting better as the series evolves. And Brownstein, as a PNW native, has an uncanny knack for getting inside the heads of real Portland. As absurd as this series is at times, truth is always stranger than fiction.
