What to Watch This Week: July 29 – August 4


Posted by on


Do not pass go, but head directly to Middle Earth tonight at 6/5c or 9:45/8:45c with a double feature of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. Watch hobbits Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) try to destroy the One Ring. And don’t miss Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) lighten up as he becomes Gandalf the White.


Brian De Palma’s classic Scarface tonight at 8/7c. Enough said. Follow the rise and fall of Al Pacino’s Tony Montana, a Cuban immigrant from Castro’s jails who comes to America for a better life and ends up as the top man in a Miami drug cartel. It’s like if The Godfather did a whole bunch of cocaine and re-did its interiors in gold and white tiger pelts. Can’t make it at 8? We’re showing it again at 11:45 p.m. ET.


Cannibalistic mutants. Demented killers. Scalp-loving doctors. A double feature of terror tonight starting at 8/7c. First up is Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses followed by The Hills Have Eyes 2 at 10/9c, where cannibalistic mutants attack National Guardsmen (Michael McMillian, Jessica Stroup, Daniella Alonso) who are investigating a distress signal in the New Mexican desert.


It’s a miracle! The Green Mile starts at 8/7c. Michael Clarke Duncan is a death row inmate who has the supernatural ability to heal others. Tom Hanks stars as the prison guard who starts to believe in his powers and his innocence.

David Cross visits the set this week on an all-new Comedy Bang! Bang!. His interview is hijacked when Bob Odenkirk shows up as a Deputy Marshall on a mission. Look for guest appearances by Will Forte, Tim Meadows and “Weird Al” Yankovic when you tune in tonight at 10/9c.


This Saturday see two of the “worst ways to die” during the BuzzFeed Block. The dying begins at 8/7c with Poseidon and Cabin Fever back to back. Don’t miss BuzzFeed’s list “The 15 Worst Ways to Die”.


How often do you get to spend Sunday with Kurt Russell and Wilford Brimley? Not enough. Watch The Thing at 4:15 p.m. ET and see the bros battle a monstrous alien who can take on the body of anyone it engulfs.

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…
