    How did I miss this show... Portlandia

    The dream of the 90s is alive in Portland.

    The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.

    OK, I just DVR'd season 1 in preparation for season 2.

    This is already one of my all-time 10 best shows.

    Four thumbs up.

    Not to be missed.

    Now that I got to watch season 1 over two nights, I'm spoiled.

    I guess I'll have to adapt to waiting a week between episodes.


    Did you know...

    That Carrie Brownstein was the lead guitarist for Sleater-Kinney? And:

    In 2006, Brownstein earned a spot on Rolling Stone's list of the "25 Most Underrated Guitarists of All-Time" as their highest-rated female guitarist of all-time.

    When she did the accupuncture scene, I was thinking, wow, she can really play that guitar. NFS.

    I just saw the "Dream of the 90s" skit on another forum and proceeded to watch every video from the show I could find. I'm definitely a fan now.

    I watched the first episode of the second season last night on IFC.com, and let me just say that if you like Battlestar Galactica, you will like this episode.

    Male or female Starbuck BG? There's a difference.

    Actually, the listing in the LA Times was in error. The 'BSG' episode of Portlandia is the second episode, airing next week. And it involves the remake: female Starbuck.
