During Friday’s brand new episode of Portlandia, we interrupted your regularly scheduled viewing of your favorite sketch comedy show with an important message from the Portland Nerd Council. While we know that Portlandia is the land where all the hot girls wear glasses, merely wearing glasses does not make you a nerd. Neither does watching the X-Men movies on Netflix or knowing that the “Jonah Hex” movie sucked or admiring an Adrian Tomine New Yorker cover or looking forward to seeing Benedict Cumberbatch as a “Star Trek” villain. Real nerds know what red shirting is, they know who the best Dr. Who is, they go to midnight screenings of “The Avengers” in full costume, they get tans only by going eventing and they wear glasses because they need them to see in Skyrim and in the real world. In short: If you’re not a nerd, don’t call yourself one.

Watch this important public service announcement and be sure to tune in to a new episode of Portlandia on Friday at 10/9c:

As you may have heard, hockey teams in the NHL have had a lot of free time on their hands lately. While the labor dispute and resulting lock-out is finally over and teams are starting to strap on their skates, pick up their sticks and hit the ice, the teams had a lot of time to sit around and catch up on all their favorite television shows. When it comes to the LA Kings, turns out that they spent their off season watching Portlandia. Yep, Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s sketch comedy show is big in LA (we’re united in our hatred of Seattle!) The LA Kings are huge fans of Portlandia, so they joined the Portlandia Co-Op and submitted an application to be guest tweeters. Can you guess what happened next? That’s right the LA Kings are taking over the Portlandia Twitter feed this week. Byaayyy! Follow along @IFCportlandia.

When the LA Kings hit the ice and finally start their season , Portlandia fans can teach LA Kings fan how to chant “Please Please Win! Meow meow meow!”:

We all know that we’re supposed to eat healthy. Our parents have pounded Eat Your Vegetables! into our heads since we were kids. But the honest truth is that sometimes vegetables can be a wee bit hard on the digestive system and while we know dark leafy greens are chockfull of vitamins, they are also full of, well, gas. Portlandia knows your dark secrets and is willing to air them out …so long as any and all such airing takes place in the designated area a.k.a. the fart patio.

In this sneak peek clip from the brand new episode of Portlandia, which airs Friday at 10/9c, Malcolm (Fred Armisen) and Kris (Carrie Brownstein) decide to start eating healthy by having lunch at a local raw vegan restaurant. However, their lunch time suddenly becomes uncomfortable as Malcolm and Kris realize eating raw food can have some side effects.

Watch this clip and be sure to tune in this Friday and be on the look out for guest star Juliette Lewis (Conviction, Natural Born Killers) as she drops by Portlandia for a special visit.
