Win 'Portlandia' Season 3 on DVD from Yahoo! TV
Win IFC's 'Portlandia' Season 3 on DVD from Yahoo! TV. (IFC)
IFC's "Portlandia" is one of the strangest shows to come out of cable television, but it's also one of the funniest.
If you haven't seen the series, two hilarious comedians, "Saturday Night Live's" Fred Armisen and musician-turned-actress Carrie Brownstein produce and star in it. They take on a myriad of characters, from the feminist owners of the bookstore Women & Women First to the proprietors of the "We Can Pickle That" and "Put a Bird on It" businesses.[Related: 'The Simpsons,' 'Portlandia,' and 'Adventure Time' Among This Year's Early Emmy Winners]
Sometimes they cross-dress; other times they simply perpetuate ridiculous catchphrases; but what drives the show is its commitment to hipsterdom. The series takes place in Portland, Oregon (as its title would suggest), and it is there that the '90s are allegedly still alive.
