      Season 2 – Portlandia

      2012 Comedy List
      100% 7 Reviews Tomatometer 83% 50+ Ratings Audience Score Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Fred Armisen and rock 'n' roll guitarist Carrie Brownstein first cracked up audiences as the internet sketch-comedy duo ThunderAnt. That led to this absurdist series set in Portland, Ore., that gently pokes fun at the laid-back Pacific Northwest city and the many eccentric characters that call it home. Among the many recurring guest stars on the series are Ed Begley Jr., Jeff Goldblum, Natasha Lyonne, Kumail Nanjiani and Kyle MacLachlan, who plays Portlandia's mayor.

      Previous Maureen Ryan Huffington Post Portlandia has matured into a comedic concoction that is consistently pleasing. Jan 6, 2012 Full Review Sarah Rodman Boston Globe Portlandia can be howlingly funny when it hits its targets head-on and adds an element of surprise. Jan 6, 2012 Full Review Christian Williams AV Club It's a pleasant surprise that a show as seemingly twee and niche as Portlandia could become IFC's highest rated program. B+ Jan 6, 2012 Full Review Jesse Carp CinemaBlend Before expanding on the surprisingly awesome, albeit few, special features, it's worth noting some of the excellent individual sketches and awesome guest spots littered throughout Portlandia Season 2. 3.5/5 Mar 27, 2018 Full Review Kristi Turnquist Oregonian And so ends what I consider an overall much-improved Season 2. I have a feeling it won't be long until we hear that IFC has plans for Season 3. Mar 10, 2012 Full Review Read all reviews Next
