There is so much comedic creativity here. The two lead characters even do gender reversals with the woman dressed as a man with his girlfriend in her red wig played by the man. And they do it so well including the voices, that it's easy to forget who is whom and just laugh.
The people are all whacky, the situations are all outlandish, and the entire city apparently is off kilter. I can't wait to go there after watching this. While this is extreme craziness I do feel that there is a lot of truth here about how Portland actually is after knowing some charming delightful people from there. I was wondering if it was just this particular group of friends that seemed funnier than people I know on the east coast or what but now I'm thinking it's a funny place in general.
This show keeps the spacey hipster goofiness coming at you non stop. It seems like the initial burst of steam the first season displayed has quieted down several notches.
It's still funny but not hilareous like it was. And what makes it so special is it seems to frequently feature situations we are all familiar with. Waiting in line for hours at a popular restaurant for a table, overeager parents of a preschooler trying desperately to get their boy into the right preschool, the child hearing his parents making funny sounds in the bedroom, are some of the episodes.
This show is more creative than most things out there and is a breath of fresh air. Not many shows make me smile and laugh any more but this one lightens my mood better than any.
💓 💕 💞 💟 🏩 Portlandia always was and always will be 5 stars.
😠 Note to reviewers complaining about packaging 😠 Plastic Blu-ray / DVD cases take ~500 years to biodegrade, although time isn't really the problem so much as the pollutants that plastic degrades into. Unless you are planning on keeping your Portlandia seasons for a few hundred years as family heirlooms or ornamental displays (the media won't even play correctly after a few decades), then quit complaining. "The cardboard scratches the discs," you say. Even if that were true (which it isn't, from my experience), do the scratches prevent your discs from playing? I thought not. [Carrie and Fred, please feel free to do a sketch about me complaining about people who are complaining]
about the subject, so even if you know nothing at all about Portland, it's still wry and sly and funny. I'm looking forward to theother seasons. Oregonian Kyle McLaughlin is perfect as the mayor, just flaky enough, and Les Hanson as the police chief was perfect.
Thanks, Carrie and Fred, for your deconstruction of a favorite city.
God I love this show. I guess I'm kind of like the people on it, which is why I really hate it so much. I'm so confused. Inside every hipster is a lot of self-loathing, mixed with an equal amount of self-importance. I'm so confused. Great show, though!
