Critic Reviews for Portlandia: Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Portlandia can be howlingly funny when it hits its targets head-on and adds an element of surprise.

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.

February 13, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

Portlandia has matured into a comedic concoction that is consistently pleasing.

January 6, 2012 | Full Review…

It's a pleasant surprise that a show as seemingly twee and niche as Portlandia could become IFC's highest rated program.

January 6, 2012 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

The show seems markedly improved from its earlier efforts and somehow more confident in its writing and sense of nuance. It's also funnier.
