No matter how inspired you are by tonight’s brand new episode of Portlandia, don’t go pickle anything, don’t start making hand-crafted furniture and don’t put a bird on anything. Instead, get comfortable on the couch because our new original animated series “Out There” premieres tonight at 10:30pm ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes.
“Out There” chronicles the life and times of Chad who is just trying to make it through high school without anything too embarrassing happening to him. There’s nothing like the high school years when it comes to building character, right? RIGHT? By the way, have you looked at our list of the Top 10 awkward high school moments from movies and television ? Read that while you wait for Out There to premiere at 10:30/9:30c.
