Portlandia 5×10 ‘Dead Pets’: “Yes, they are weirdos!”

Another season of Portlandia has come to an end and it went out with a bang. This season was a completely different take on the traditional Portlandia sketch structure and I think the gamble paid off. Especially with this last episode which felt very cinematic and was probably the funniest episode of the season as […]

House of Lies 4×10 ‘Prasie Money! Hallowed Be Thy Name’: “We have burger lettuce.”

Marty and his gang are back in hot water this week as a deal that’s slated to go through gets the kibosh from Denna. The ugly Clyde-Doug-Kelsey love triangle comes back into focus as well, hopefully for the last time. Plus, Roscoe’s dance with the devil finally catches up with him. Sarah S. Sarah S. […]

Portlandia 5×09 ‘You Can Call Me Al’: “BEER Belly.”

This week’s Portlandia is focused on Music. There’s two bumbling installers from a company that installs speakers on literally every surface of your home. Plus, Dave and Kath get an invitation to a karaoke party and go into full panic mode. There’s also the most accurate depiction of a post office that I’ve ever seen. […]

House of Lies 4×09 ‘We’re Going to Build a Mothership and Rule the Universe’

Hey there guys! So what’s happening in the super messed up world of Marty Kaan this week? Well, despite having sold 60% of his company to Denna, his new squeeze (?), everything seems to be coming up roses. Business is booming, Gage Motors and Ellis Hightower seem to be leaving well alone (we’ll see how […]

Parks and Recreation 7×12 ‘One Last Ride’: Farewell Pawnee.

How’s everyone feeling about one of the best comedy series of all time ending? Yeah me too. It’s hard to say goodbye to a show that has brought so much positivity and joy into so many people’s lives. Hanging out with Leslie Knope and her pals got me through some tough times and made me […]

Marty and his associates gear up for some serious revenge against Ellis Hightower this week.

Portlandia 5×07 ‘Doug Becomes a Feminist’: Independent mermaids.

In the cold open of this week’s episode, Carrie and Fred talk about coming out and how you should just be yourself. There are apparently many different types of new queerness including “homo-spectacle” which Carrie demonstrates by playing a girl who makes out with other girls to get male attention. Also there’s “homo-sonic” which Fred […]

Parks and Recreation 7×10 and 7×11 ‘The Johnny Karate Super Awesome Musical Explosion Show’ and ‘Two Funerals.’

Welcome back to Pawnee, Indiana folks! Man these episodes sure are getting sad now that we’re nearing the end of the series. But there’s still a lot of laughs to go around: it’s Andy’s last appearance as Johnny Karate on the local Pawnee channel and for some reason that almost brought me to tears even […]

Parks and Recreation 7×08 and 7×09 ‘Mrs. Ludgate-Dwyer Goes to Washington’/ ‘Pie-Mary’

Hey there Parks and Rec fans! Looks like NBC decided to pair up two episodes again and like most of the season they’re directly related to big character changes. Leslie and Ben are of course being pulled in two directions: Pawnee and Washington D.C. but I think we all know where they’re going to end […]

House of Lies 4×06 ‘Trust Me, I’m Getting Plenty of Erections’: Jeannie’s gotta go.

Aaaaand here we go again with the Marty back in prison flashbacks. Just as I predicted, we get to see a lot more of Marty as a convict.

Portlandia 5×05 ‘4th of July BBQ’s’: “Wipe off this burger with your FAAAAACCE!”

Dave and Kath are back and this time they’re planning a crappy Fourth of July BBQ with the help of a punk party planner played by guest star Jane Lynch. This episode kind of reminded me of the brunch episode or the healthcare episode from earlier this season where it’s revolving around one central theme […]

Portlandia 05×4 ‘SeaWorld’: “Here we are back…mmmm…in the living room.”

Alright weirdos! Here’s your recap of this week’s Portlandia episode. We get to see the mayor finally! In the cold open we see a “shocking” art supply shop that sells all the art school clichés: beheaded baby dolls, broken TV’s you can stack and play static on, and you get a discount if you’re hunched […]

Parks and Recreation 7×05 ‘Gryzzlbox’, 7×06 ‘Rally to Save JJ’s’: “Hitch 2: Son of a Hitch.”

What up people of the internet?! Are you ready for some more awesome Parks and Rec? Me too! What a coincidence! So when we last left Pawnee, Leslie and Ron had finally made up, we learned that Morningstar was an apartment complex Ron helped develop which plowed over Ann’s old house, Tom was sad about […]
