Portlandia’s pretty funny. Like most sketch comedy, it’s definitely hit-or-miss, but it’s still a damn good parody of the yuppiedom found in places like Portland and yes, my neighborhood, Park Slope. Also, I’ve long thought Fred Armisen to be subtly hilarious, and this is a much better medium for his talents than SNL.
I want a Bernese mountain dog. Maybe I’ll rescue one from a tsunami.
