I've only seen a few episodes, and I think they're all fairly funny. It could actually be "Bloomingtonia" for my town.

I really loved seeing Aimee Mann as a housekeeper.

I've watched the whole season now and I just love it. The last episode wasn't great, I'll admit, but it had its moments. I'm also kind of in love with Sparkle Pony.

The image was lovely, but was it cliché? In a post-”Portlandia” world, I couldn’t show up to a party of design-savvy women with a gift upon which someone had put a bird. What would that say about my taste? That it was stuck in last January? The pang in my gut was so specific and acute that I felt only Germans could accurately name it. Did I just experience der Vogelschäme?


I don't care what anyone says, I still like things with birds on them.

If you liked it then you should have put a bird on it.

I would pay money to hear Carrie Brownstein sing that.

It's on iTunes. It's pretty good. A little hit or miss, but they always were, and when they're on they're on. But they pronounce "Willamette" wrong in the song. Thumbs up aside from that.

I thought the mispronunciation was on purpose because when you do that you get yelled at?

That episode wasn't bad, especially compared to some of the episodes from last season.

I find NO HUMOR in the mispronunciation of the RIVER UPON THE BANKS OF WHICH I GREW UP. Thank you VERY MUCH.

I quite liked it! I thought the Allergy Pride Parade was pretty genius, and I think I laughed out loud at one of the jokes (though now I can't remember which).

Good to know; I might check this out. I only really liked the first two episodes from season 1 though.

It seems to be more consistent than the first season so far. I loved the AC repair man and 80 Plates Around the World.

I'm pretty mixed on the new episode. I liked 80 plates around the world but it was identical to the cellphone skit from season 1. If they repeat the formula that often it's going to get old fast. I think they could have played up the whole pilgrimage from Portland to LA thing much more as it was hilarious for all 60 seconds of it.

I really liked that article! It did an effective job of getting me psyched up for this season.

I died laughing when they go to LA and can't take the bright sun!

There were a few things that made me laugh this last episode, but I'll be darned if I can recall what those things were! Off topic I guess but I do know that I'm not watching any more Todd Margaret episodes.

I loved the Jack McBrayer bag skit. And he had almond milk!

The first person called to be Carrie's friend in the gym was vegan comedienne Virgina Jones!
