Posted by on

Monday
When the local steel mill closes, two men with nothing to lose come up with a unique way to raise money …as well as more than a few eyebrows. The Full Monty was a major box-office hit both in England and the United States and was nominated for Academy Awards as Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay. The Full Monty airs at 7:35 p.m. ET.

Tuesday
The adventures of Roy, Moss and Jen in the underbelly of the Reynholm Corporation continue in Series 4 of the BBC comedy ‘The IT Crowd’. Don’t forget to read our interview with creator, writer, and director Graham Linehan. The new episode starts at 10:30 p.m. ET.

Wednesday
Javier Bardem shot to super star status after his stunning and sobering portrayal of a quadriplegic who wants to die with dignity in The Sea Inside. It plays at 11:45 a.m. ET, so set your DVR and watch it with a box of tissues later.

Thursday
It’s Jon Favreau double feature day! The fun kicks off with Made, Favreau’s directorial debute, is a reunion with his Swingers co-star Vince Vaughn with Sean “P. Diddy” Combs and Peter Falk. Next is The Big Empty where Jon Favreau learns the hard way that money never comes easy.

Friday
Every Friday night we are showing back-to-back episodes of the Kids in the Hall’s eight-part miniseries Death Comes to Town. Wacky hijinks and cross dressing mix with murder surprisingly well. The fun starts at 10 p.m. ET. Bring your own wig.

Saturday
The glorious lovechild of writer Quentin Tarantino and director Robert Rodriguez, From Dusk til Dawn premieres on IFC tonight. The gory action flick stars George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino as the notorious Gecko brothers who are on the run from the FBI. They kidnap a family to make their escape to Mexico, but the fun really starts when the desperadoes hide out at the Titty Twister saloon, which turns out to be a haven for vampires. It starts at 8 p.m. ET

Sunday
Catch up on past episodes of Ideal. The extremely off-beat BBC comedy stars Johnny Vegas as a pot dealer who works almost exclusively out of his very unkempt apartment. A quirky cast of characters parades through the pad, entertaining the audience as much as they disturb Johnny. The Ideal marathon runs from noon to 3 p.m. ET.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.

Put A Bird On It

Portlandia enters the pop-culture lexicon and inspires us to put birds on literally everything.

Colin the Chicken

Who’s your chicken, really? Behold the emerging locavore trend captured perfectly to the nth degree.

Dream Of The ’90s

This treatise on Portland made it clear that “the dream” was alive and well.

No You Go

We Americans spend most of our lives in cars. Fortunately, there’s a Portlandia sketch for every automotive situation.

A-O River!

We learned all our outdoor survival skills from Kath and Dave.
