What to Watch on IFC: November 1-November 7

What to Watch on IFC: November 1-November 7 (photo)

Posted by on

Pack away the costumes, the ghoulish decorations and the horror films (well, maybe not the horror films), because it’s a whole new month, with a whole new holiday looming on the horizon. Since Thanksgiving doesn’t have as many excellent movies associated it with the fright fest that Halloween requires, we’re going to do our best to not show any turkeys. This week we have something for everyone namely, Jason Statham. He stars in Crank on Thursday at 11 p.m. ET. That should put a spring in your step even as the weather turns colder.

As the seasons change, so do the television schedules and this week is bringing a lot of change. We are bidding farewell to high school with Freaks and Geeks and reliving dorm life with Undeclared on Friday at 11 p.m. ET. Hot plate top ramen, anyone?

Here is what else you need to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

It’s your final chance to watch Freaks and Geeks live with your fellow nerds, dorks, burn outs, and, of course, Matt Singer and Will Weinand. While we’re sad to see the kids of McKinley High go, we’re are very excited to start showing Judd Apatow’s Undeclared. Luckily college has a lot of familiar faces including Seth Rogen and Jason Segel, so you won’t get homesick. So crack open a brewski and tune in at 11 p.m. ET right here to bid farewell to Freaks and Geeks.

Tuesday

At 9:30 p.m. ET IFC’s original program 360 Sessions goes behind the music with Corinne Bailey Rae. During the half hour show she talks about her return to music, her influences and career at Abbey Road Studios.

Wednesday

Tuck the kids (and pervy roommates) into bed, light a candle, and pour a glass of wine, because Indie Sex 2: Censored is on tonight at 11 p.m ET. The documentary looks at the filmmakers and special interest groups who regulate and distribute the images that shock and titillate viewers.

Thursday

It’s Jason M@#erf*cking Statham! The hottest action hero in the world (don’t argue) hits the IFC air in Crank at 11 p.m. ET. Statham stars as a former hitman who is poisoned by his ex-bosses and must keep his (and yours) adrenaline pumping or else.

Friday

Between five episodes of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret airing from 7:30 p.m. ET to 10:30 p.m. ET and the first episode of Undeclared at 11 p.m. ET. You may as well glue your remote control to the ceiling because you won’t be changing channels all night.

Saturday

Hey, look! It’s Heather Graham’s Committed at 5:55 p.m. ET. We love her. If you need a palate cleanser, stick around for some serious horror with a double feature of gross when we show Quentin Tarantino’s and Robert Rodriguez’s Grindcore Presents: Planet Terror and Deathproof. The fun starts at 10 p.m. ET.

Sunday

Wake up at noon (ET), fix yourself a breakfast cocktail and stay in bed all day with our Arrested Development marathon. Lucille Bluth would approve. Don’t bother getting up, because one of our favorite Brian De Palma films Carrie starts at 6:30 p.m. ET.

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.

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…
