What to watch this week on IFC: May 6 – May 12


Posted by on

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Join the manhunt at 8/7 when we show “The Fugitive.” Harrison Ford plays the titular fugitive, a doctor who is on the lam and in pursuit of the truth after being falsely accused of killing his wife. His every move is tracked by a very determined US Marshall played by Tommy Lee Jones who definitely does not have ADHD.


Uh-oh it’s magic! We’re showing Christopher Nolan’s dark and dreamy “The Prestige” at 8/7c. Grab your magic wand, top hat and white rabbit to watch Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale as two 19th-century magicians battle it out in a deadly serious rivalry. Watch for the bonus cameo by rock god David Bowie!


Get ready to scare yourself right out of your pants. We’re showing Stanley Kubrick’s terrifying masterpiece “The Shining” at 8/7c. Jack Nicholson stars as a writer, who is tired of the all work and no play writing life and takes his wife (Shelley Duvall) and son to a closed-for-the-season snowed-in lodge. It goes about as well as expected. Everybody now: Redrum! Redrum!


Arnold Schwarzenegger is coming for you at 10:45/9:45c, when we show “Collateral Damage.” In this action-filled flick Arnold plays a once mild-mannered Los Angeles firefighter who travels to Colombia to find the terrorist who killed his wife and son.


A new episode of “Maron” airs tonight at 10/9c. But wait, there’s more! In addition to Marc Maron, today’s line up includes back-to-back Bluths. Yep, we’re showing “Arrested Development” from 8/7c clear through to Saturday.


Saturday night means another dose of the Buzzfeed Block! This week we’re showing Billy Crystal in “City Slickers” at 8/7c followed by Mike Myers in “Austin Powers in Goldmember” at 10:30/9:30c. What list will Buzzfeed write this week? Check back to find out.


Happy Mother’s Day! To celebrate we’re showing that children and family classic film “Mommy Dearest.” Who says we don’t know how to show mom we care. The classic parenting film, stars Faye Dunaway as Joan Crawford the real life movie queen who was allegedly a terrible terrible mother. Tune in any time between 12/11 and 11/10c to find out what “No wire hangers!” means.

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.
