Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

“National Lampoon’s Adam & Eve” airs at 5:30 p.m. ET. In the movie, a college senior (Cameron Douglas) finds his patience tested when he learns his beautiful new girlfriend (“Entourage’s” Emmanuelle Chriqui) is a virgin. The horror, right? Don’t worry, in the hands of National Lampoon, it ends up funny.

Tuesday

Sick of the work-a-day life? Why not saddle up and go west, young man. To help you ride off into the sunset, we’re showoing “City Slickers” at 8/7c. The film stars Billy Crystal as the titular city slicker who heads out to a dude ranch along with his friends played by Daniel Stern and Bruno Kirby to play cowboy on a cattle drive, but unexpected circumstances test their skills and stamina.

Wednesday

At 11/10c we’re showing one of the most powerful movies of recent memory, “Mystic River.” Kevin Bacon plays a detective investigating the brutal beating and murder of the daughter of a childhood friend (Sean Penn), that may implicate another close friend played by Tim Robbins. It’s dark and stormy and guaranteed to stick with you film that is definitely worth watching.

Thursday

We’re turning this week into a Tim Robbins extravaganza when we show “The Shawshank Redemption” at 8/7c and again at 11/10c. The film stars our man Tim Robbins as an innocent man behind bars for two life sentences after he was wrongly convicted of a 1947 double murder. He lands in a corrupt Maine penitentiary where the only silver lining in his friendship with Morgan Freeman.

Friday

After back-to-back episodes of “Arrested Development,” we’re showing a new episode of “Maron” at 10/9c. This week, Marc’s assistant Kyle is trapped between his love of “Parks and Recreation” star Aubrey Plaza, who guest stars as Marc’s WTF podcast guest and Marc’s sex fest fling Jen (Nora Zehetner).

Saturday

It’s a double feature of terror when we show “The Hills Have Eyes” at 8/7c followed by “The Hills Have Eyes 2” at 10:15/9:15c. When it comes to bloodthirsty mutants living in a government atomic zone, there’s no such thing as too much. Tune in for terror! Bring your own barf bag.

Sunday

Think you have issues? Then you haven’t been watching enough “Maron.” Catch up with Marc Maron when we show back-to-back episodes of “Maron” starting at 10 a.m. ET/9 a.m.CT watch the entire season so far from “Internet Troll” with guest star Dave Foley of the Kids in the Hall fame up to “Jen Moves to LA.”

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.
