Trivia

According to Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, the feminist bookstore scenes are actually shot at the very same non-profit bookstore that inspired the characters. The store is filmed as-is, without any additional set dressing. See more »

Solid show
11 March 2013 | by (Detroit, MI) – See all my reviews

I am very glad I started watching this show, and am also glad that it streams on Netflix as I'm not sure I even get IFC. Every episode is funny, but, as with any TV shows (especially sketch comedy) there are some skits that are better than others. Most of the characters and sketches focus on the apparent headway that the west coast is making with hipster/green/vegan/feminist/alternative transportation lifestyles. (side note- the biker skit made me laugh very hard). This show will not be for everyone, but watch the first one or two episodes and you will know if you like it or not. No shame in thinking something isn't funny. As I said, I'm not a fan of every skit, though they're all tolerable, and it's worth muddling through for the sketches that make you laugh your ass off. The only big downside is that I can see it getting repetitive if it goes too long. Five seasons at most is my prediction. WATCH IT. They are only half hour episodes, and it's a good break from big network canned laughter BS. I posted before said bike skit link below if you want a good taste.
