The holiday season means friends, family, food — and stress. The closest many will come to relaxing will be vegging out in front of the television. Luckily IFC’s That ’70s Show Christmas Fez-tival offers the perfect assistance with digestion, as well as advice for dealing with your nearest and dearest. What tips can Eric, Kelso, Red and the rest of the gang offer for  the holiday season? Grab a mug of egg nog (and a cold beer for Red), and take a look below.

1. Remember the importance of family.

Red Forman may be the greatest advice-giver of all time. Not only does he give good advice but he’ll make sure you listen — even if that means shoving his foot so far up your ass he can wear you like a winter boot. Here he reminds us all that no matter how obligated we feel to spend time with people, we have a greater obligation to ourselves.


2. Keep your friends (and frenemies) close.

Christmas dinner means you can combine this advice into a single step and still be right. Because at Christmas dinner the line between friends and enemies is blurred all over your family tree. And if your greatest attack is feeding people with cookies, one way or another you’ll quickly find you have no enemies.


3. It’s never too late to tell someone you care.

Eric understands the most important part of the holiday season: appreciating those close to us. Take a moment to make sure they understand how you feel.


4. Watch the holiday classics on TV.

Fez’s education in all things Christmas consists mainly of television specials. It’s an excellent academic program and one we recommend everyone study this year.


5. Be open to change.

Donna identifies a slight gender imbalance in most traditional Christmas tales. The implication is that it’s better to consider the feelings of the friends and family you’re actually spending time with than the exact details of old traditions. Make sure everyone feels included!


6. Give the gift of face-melting rock.

Gift-giving is truly the spirit of the season, and Hyde arrives with an excellent combination of traditional items and something that anyone who wants to rock should own.


7. Be kind to those who want to watch their favorite TV shows (like That ’70s Show!).

This is advice we can get behind 100%. Our ideal Christmas is a roaring fire, a That ’70s Show marathon, an endless supply of snacks, and enough couch space for the whole family.

Happy holidays!

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.
