It would be exceptionally easy to simply describe "Portlandia" as 'one of those weird IFC things,' and while that description would be wholly accurate, it may not quite be specific enough. "Portlandia" is a show which, we're told, attempts to depict the nature of Portland, Oregon and its inhabitants via a comedic lens. Not having been to Portland nor having ever meant anyone from Portland, we can't testify about the show's accuracy, but we're pretty sure that the comedic lens is really more of a funhouse mirror. But maybe not.
