The brilliance of Portlandia, and part of what I imagine will be its staying power, is that the jokes work both as insider cultural reference and rank absurdism.
A more ambitious extension of the occasional videos that Armisen and Portland resident Brownstein have posted online over the past few years under the name ThunderAnt.
Portlandia is not to everyone's taste, but it's an eccentric, surprising little microbrew of a show.
I think the show was struggling to find its footing here with a few excellent moments in otherwise slow-to-start sketches.
It has its moments, and the good news is that no Portlanders were harmed during the making of Portlandia.
