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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Funniest Show on TV January 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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.

Format:Blu-ray
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Season 2. August 6, 2013

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars good May 23, 2013
By Phil
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars FRESH! October 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
See my review of Season 2. They just keep rolling along with more great witty, quirky, simultaneously hilarious and insightful episodes (a very tough combination to successfully pull off). Way better than any of the formulaic, tired, pretentious and outright obnoxious garbage currently being shilled as comedy. Hollywood hasn't managed to come up with anything remotely as clever in years despite their bloated budgets and smirking actors. I keep fearing it will end - Carrie and Fred will start taking themselves too seriously, become too famous and the magic will die; but until it does, I salivate awaiting each new episode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Odd sense of humor -- yup; that's me September 4, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I don't know why I love this show. I laugh and laugh every time I have a moment to sit on my busy bum and watch it. Many of the skits are completely idiotic, but I laugh...Says something about me, huh?!

Portlandia runs hot and cold, as does most contemporary sketch comedy. As I have remarked in reviews of the previous seasons, the fundamental problem with the show is the same... Read more

the show is totally origional...there are no "take offs" of other productions. There's nothing like it. Portland has embraced its little sister.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny stuff! I love Portlandia :-)
I live in Portland, and even though sketches progressively get more exaggerated (during each sketch, not across sketches), there is enough truth to make them hilarious.
