I didn't watch the first season of Fred Armison's Portlandia, showing on IFC, because I thought I wouldn't get it. I've never lived in Portland, Oregon. I've never even been there. But I recently saw the first episode at a friend's house, and I thought it was hilarious. (I didn't even realize it was a sketch comedy show! I thought it would be the sitcom equivalent, basically, of Reality Bites.) Now, with the second season starting up next weekend, I've added it to my DVR schedule. I find Saturday Night Live generally unwatchable, so I had no idea Fred Armison was this funny!
