      Season 7 – Portlandia

      2017 Comedy List
      Reviews 68% Fewer than 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 John Hugar AV Club While you could make the argument that a sketch show about how people in Portland are kinda quirky and hipster-y should have grown tiresome by now, that's just not the case. B Jan 6, 2017 Full Review Melanie McFarland Season 7 already feels as if the sketch show is settling into dusty comedic patterns and taking the audience's affection for familiar personalities and recycled bits for granted. Jan 5, 2017 Full Review Kristi Turnquist Oregonian Season 7 is the next-to-last one of Portlandia, but based on its spry start, the show hasn't yet worn out its welcome. Mar 27, 2018 Full Review Rob Owen Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Portlandia is funnier than it's been in a few years, perhaps because the focus has moved back to the sketch comedy that defined the show's early season.

      Previous Andrei D Needs more weirdness Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Possibly one of the best seasons. The male movement story line is profoundly funny, and speaks to contemporary gender roles in an absolutely fresh way. Irresistible! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member The most poignant season since the first. PortlandiA+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member still holding on strong. the rats vs squirrels skit cracked me up big time. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Portlandia was one of my favorite shows of all time, along with Arrested Development, but seasons 6 and now season 7 are on such another level of bad now and it truly saddens me. I'm the type where it takes a lot for me to laugh out loud at movies/shows, but with the first few seasons of Portlandia, I laughed so hard all the time. The chemistry between Fred and Carrie was perfection. The comedy was cutting edge, brilliant and original. Now, I don't even crack a smile, starting with season 6. The magic that was there during your first few seasons seems to have disappeared completely. I watched the first 2 episodes of seasons 7 last night; it wasn't even mediocre. It was just straight out lame and it's like you're trying too hard with no real outcome. Whoever is telling you that your ideas for a show are funny are straight out lying to you. Did you change writers? What happened??? I feel like your good days have come and gone and that makes sad. Farewell Portlandia. Fred Armison and Carrie Brownstein will always be some of my favorites (and I love the band Slater Kinney BTW). But, Portlandia needs to make some drastic changes or I feel that you'll be losing most of your fanbase real soon, like myself :( Common Portlandia, get it together.
