The dream of the 90's is alive once again now that the inspired insanity of IFC's Portlandia returns on Friday.
The brainchild of Saturday Night Live's Fred Armisen, Jonathan Krisel and former Sleater-Kinney singer Carrie Brownstein, the Emmy-nominated Portlandia has amassed a loyal legion of fans who have Put A Bird On It, spent too much time in a Feminist Bookstore and fallen in love with the oversize yet understated characters that have come to life over the past two seasons. ETonline caught up with Armisen to find out what fans can look forward to this season, how he juggled Portlandia duties with his SNL responsibilities and how long Armisen plans to juggle both.
ETonline: Portlandia went from sleeper hit to full blown movement last season, culminating in a multi-city sold out tour. How exciting has it been that the quirky show has been so widely embraced?
Fred Armisen: It's like the ultimate surprise. Even though »
