Portlandia’s Top 10 Sketches
Portlandia's fourth season debuts tonight on IFC at 10/9 central, so we thought we'd take a look back at some of the best, strangest, or ironic sketches from our favorite unlikely comic duo. Here are our favorites, from an out of control game of hide and seek, to an all too familiar binge session of Battlestar Galactica, and the near-perfect introduction to the show, "Dream of the '90s."
Portlandia is one of the most unique and consistently hilarious sketch shows to come along since Mr. Show, and these sketches serve as a sampler platter of some of the best Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein have to offer. (And remember that Fred and Carrie are on the cover of Under the Radar's current issue. Also read a review of tonight's season premiere here.)
