Portlandia's peculiar brand of humor might not be for everyone, but there's no denying the singular delights of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's comedic chemistry.

Audience Reviews for Portlandia: Season 1

  • Mar 21, 2020
    One of the most steadily entertaining looks at hipster culture, if not particularly scathing or deep. A great cast of rotating guest stars keeps the skits fresh, but it's Armistead's and Brownstein's delivery that you can count on for consistency.
  • Jan 04, 2017
    It's whimsical. It's absurd. Even spot-on, in its caricatures of modern Portland inhabitants -- hippies, hipsters, and beyond. All that this show needs is a full-fledged joke.
  • Nov 25, 2016
    Original and hilariously funny.
  • Aug 24, 2016
    Portlandia is an amazing show with clever humor and funny Portland stereotypes. Pros. Random but clever humor with good jokes and Portland stereotypes. Also people from Portland don't take it to personally please. Cons Humor sometimes gets so random it's not funny.
  • Jun 14, 2016
    Yet another "comedy" series that takes a handful of great talent and produces outright drivel. I for one will be delighted when this epidemic of stupidity/absurdity as comedy has run its course...
  • Dec 16, 2015
    Although it might not be as consistently funny as one might hope, "Portlandia" shines due to the creativity of its skits and the likability of its two stars.
  • Jan 09, 2015
    A biting (but loving) satire of Portland weirdness that rightly became an instant classic.
  • Apr 10, 2014
    Funny and quirky, two things I really like about a show
