Recently, I’ve been getting into watching Portlandia which is a satirical comedy based out of Portland, Oregon. On the surface, the show is crude and can get a little dull at times. If you pay attention to the skits and satire associated with them, you can appreciate the genius of Portlandia, created by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. Their skits make fun of of American obsession. Americans have a tendency to be obsessed over certain things for a short period of time. If you don’t believe me think about iPhones, Gangnam style, and cats. So far I’ve only watched season one and I loved it. The skits about books, the technology loop, and bikers really say a lot about American culture in a nutshell. I personally haven’t watched the spoiler above, but I will when I’m ready.
If you get the chance, check out Portlandia on your Netflix instant que.
