Critic Reviews for Portlandia Season 8

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Portlandia has been specific, absurdist, and often very funny; this season is no exception. All in all, though, it's probably best that Portlandia is finally ending - the way it targets its figures of ridicule has somewhat outstayed its welcome.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Portlandia captures the slightly sheepish, somewhat smug attitude of the aging hipster as only an aging hipster can. Full of absurdist commentary on "the way we live now."

Feb 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Portlandia is finally packing it in this year, and while the show's cultural impact has waned since its early 2010s peak, anyone still watching knows that it can often be quite funny.

Jan 19, 2018 | Rating: B | Full Review…

Portlandia provides wonderful cultural snapshots from a place that is also proudly a state of mind. It will be missed.

Dec 13, 2018 | Full Review…

Season 8 kicks off in that spirit, celebrating its characters as they dream, rage and chase the wild horses in their lives.

Aug 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Watching Portlandia these days is like chewing a piece of slightly stale candy; you can still taste the sweet spots, but mostly, it's just bland.

Jan 18, 2018 | Full Review…

This time out, there's a delightful take-off on true crime podcasts, and a reluctant resistance punk band...

Jan 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Armisen, Brownstein and the rest of the team intend to keep things bright as they prepare to turn out the lights.

    Sinkles was my favorite sketch of the season. Always tough to rate sketch shows....
