No Childishness Left Behind, 7 March 2014
Author: borderlinefilms from Canada

When you see something as funny and, unlike other comedies, steadily improving as Portlandia, with it's good-natured ribbing of diverse and alternative lifestyles, a cultural distinction of Portland, Oregon, you wonder why... how can... Fred Armisen, the co-writer, co- creator and co-star of the show, end up as Seth Meyers' Paul Schaffer? It should be the other way around. It should be the Fred Armisen Hour with side-kick stiff, Seth Meyers. Fred shouldn't be wasting his time and talent scoring jingles for an after-midnight talk show with Mr. What-Should-I-Do-With-My-Hands Meyers.

There's nothing much to dislike about Portlandia. When two ex-punk rockers, Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, with a flair for ticklish irony, doll themselves up and paint a series of on-going comic vignettes, often as a male-female couple, sometimes lesbian bookstore owners, or swapping genders altogether (Carrie, the insensitive male, kills me!), using the city of Portland as their canvass, expectations weren't very high. What started out as a cute and clumsy IFC experiment, has become a surprisingly well-thought out, superbly executed and admirably smart program. They expertly poke fun at a full spectrum of West-Coast folk from bistro brunching hipsters to dumpster diving freegans.

This is more than just Sesame Street for stoners. Or another bright, flattering, playful satire for medicated skeptics. Fred and Carrie are on to something here, perhaps taking comedy to a new place, occupying a contemporary niche, avant-garde for millenials. It started getting better after the wonderfully neurotic Chloe Sevigny dropped in for a few appearances. Last week's episode with Oliva When-Do-I-Take-My-Top-Off Wilde had me giggling throughout. The only criticism I have of Portandia is that the two stars are front and center of every skit, at times dubiously playing themselves, and often stealing the spotlight from the city they're supposed to be showcasing/satirizing. They could make room for a couple of local Portland performers to develop their own routines. Especially now since Fred will be very busy twanging the banjo for another NBC SNL-derived star-fawning talk show.
