Just watched the first episode of the IFC channel program Portlandia. If you have any interest in the city at all, watch. Or even if you don’t – the jokes are pretty good even if you’re not much familiar with the city.
If you are, you get the point: The image of Portland as a haven for techy and culturally outlandish sacker. A parody, pointed enough to generate some real laughs, but not mean-spirited.
Best bits: The Portland song at the beginning, and the discussion in a restaurant about exactly organic this chicken on the menu is. (And its name, and a portrait photo.)Share on Facebook
