What to Watch on IFC in June

Posted by on

June is one busy month here at IFC. For starters, beginning Sunday, June 7th, our comedy series “Z Rock” make its rockin’ return, with the ZO2 boys up to more antics at daytime kiddie parties and nightly rock gigs. And look out for numerous guest appearances, including American Idol alum-turned-Tony Award nominee (for his leading role in Broadway’s “Rock of Ages”) Constantine Maroulis, Frank Stallone, the hottest of real housewives Bethenny Frankel, along with recurrent stints from Dave Navarro, John Popper, Dee Snider and Joan Rivers, and much more. The show airs Sundays at 11e/p.

Along with the return of “Z Rock,” we’re got a brand new Brit comedy that’ll leave you feeling mighty, erm, high. “Ideal” follows Moz, who’s just your average small-time shut-in hash dealer living in a run-down flat with his girlfriend and trying to get by. On a daily basis, Moz has to deal with an all-too-colorful array of customers who pass in and out of his life as he goes about “providing a crucial service to the community.” “Ideal” premieres Sunday June 7th at 11:30e/p.

There’s more! New to the Automat, an IFC Original series: “Food Party.” Follow Thu Tran as she creates eccentric dishes and finds herself in all kinds of wacky situations. Catch it Tuesdays at 11:15e/p, followed by “Wrong Door,” an imaginative UK sketch comedy show, at 11:30.

In addition to our Friday film at midnight, every Thursday this month brings on a triple threat of depravity, craziness and lurid horror sure to please the most avid genre enthusiast. Get ready for the network premiere of “The Devil’s Rejects,” Rob Zombie’s follow up to “House of 1,000 Corpses”; old-school horror classics like “Eaten Alive” and new ones like “Jeepers Creepers” (with a pre-fame Justin Long!).

See Christian Bale get almost as angry as he was in his Terminator rant in “American Psycho,” and watch the true-to-life story of a murderous Hollywood rampage in “Wonderland.” Check out the full schedule for details.

310x229_sugar.jpgAlso, we’re celebrating Gay Pride with Out at the Movies every Friday evening, kicking off with the original IFC documentary “Fabulous! The Story of Queer Cinema.”

Other equally fabulous films include Macaulay Culkin playing murderous club kid Michael Alig in “Party Monster”; Gregg Araki’s “Nowhere”; restless youths coming of age in “Sugar”; “Far From Heaven” and 1961’s “Victim,” which when it was made tackled a topic considered completely taboo. And don’t miss the network premiere of the inspired-by-a-heartbreaking-true-story “It’s My Party.”

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.

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

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.
