Posted by on

It’s officially holiday season. Which means you will want to spend hours on the couch in your parents’ basement surreptitiously unbuttoning your pants and wishing you hadn’t eaten thirds of Aunt Zelda’s famous mashed potatoes. We can’t help you with your self-control, but we can help you plan your TV watching.

Here’s what to watch on IFC this week:


As you are aware we love Johnny Depp and movies based on graphic novels. So obviously we are excited that we’re showing “From Hell” at 8 p.m. and 12:35 a.m. ET. Here are five reasons to tune in.


Nothing says “it’s the holidays” quite like the annual airing of Stanley Kubrick’s“The Shining.” Gather the family round the warming glow of the television and wait for little Jimmy to start croaking “Redrum! Redrum!” Fun for the whole family starts at 11 p.m. ET.


“The Last King of Scotland” will remind you of all the things to be thankful for. Also, it’s a really good movie. Tune in at 10 p.m. ET.


We have three little words to make your Thanksgiving that much better: “Arrested Development” marathon. All day, all night. It’s our little way of showing that we’re thankful for YOU.


Sick of your family? Send them to the mall for those Black Friday sales while you watch back-to-back episodes of “Malcolm in the Middle” beginning at 6 p.m. ET, to remind yourself that your family just isn’t that bad. Reggie Watts knows what’s up:

Get lunch with the Pythons! Grab a plate of leftovers and settle in because “Monty Python Live at the Hollywood Bowl” starts at 1:45 p.m. ET.


If you don’t believe that the path to hell is paved with good intentions, catch Christopher Walken in Abel Ferrara’s “The King of New York” at 8:45 p.m. ET.


Final Countdown

The Best Of The Last

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

Couples Dinner

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

Cancel it!

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Forgotten America

This one’s a “Serial” killer…everything both right and wrong about true crime podcasts.

Wedding Planners

The only bad wedding is a boring wedding.

Disaster Hut

It’s only the end of the world if your doomsday kit doesn’t include rosé.

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.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas and thanks to IFC’s movie marathon all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can revel in classic ’80s films AND find inspiration for your last-minute gifts. Here are our recommendations, if you need a head start:

Musical Instrument

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.

Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…
