Critic Reviews for Portlandia: Season 3

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4)

At its best, it walks this great fine line between celebrating and satirizing a very specific niche of indie-hipster-yuppieness, one I'd consider myself right in the pocket for.

It's rare to find a sketch show that's both whip-smart and culturally prescient.

Portlandia has excelled at providing a social commentary on awkward situations...It's the little things that make Portlandia a show we come back to every week.

For a show that once displayed a knack for smiling sweetly while twisting shivs in juicy targets it all feels like evidence of slow motion decline.

I've said before that I think Portlandia has the potential to be more than a sketch show, as Armisen and Brownstein have gradually gotten better at constructing the narratives of the main sketches and building recurring characters and elements.

It's less intensely fixated on the city from which the series derives its name, and Armisen and Brownstein's willingness to expand the scope of its satire has ultimately led to something more sustainable, if a little less local.
