The Twelve Days of Judd Apatow: Day 1 Freaks and Geeks

Who would you rather have come down your chimney: An elderly obese bearded man wearing the pelts of dead animals and …velvet, or America’s number one comedy producer Judd Apatow? You don’t even need a minute to think about it, because the answer is clear: Judd Apatow, of course. Sure, Santa has a bag full of junk to stuff in your stockings and sugar plums to dance in your head, but really, who wants reindeer prancing on their roof in the middle of the night? And can you imagine the clean up required after having eight reindeer up on the eaves? You know someone named Blixen isn’t totally housebroken. Besides, Judd Apatow gives the gift that keeps on giving. By that we mean laughter, not the kind of gift that is cured with a trip to the pharmacy. Judd Apatow knows funny. And we’re fans of funny. If we remember anything from our LSAT prep class, it’s that if you like funny then logically you must like Judd Apatow, too.

Some of Judd Apatow’s new classic comedies like Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared have been in heavy rotation here at IFC. In January, our schedule fills up with even more of Apatow’s shows: The Larry Sanders Show and The Ben Stiller Show. To help ring in the new year of great programming we present “The Twelve Days of Judd Apatow”, a daily look at the comedies that spring from the mind of Judd Apatow, like Athena but without the headache. Today, a few clips from our favorite episodes of Freaks and Geeks. We Wish You A Merry Judd Apatow!

Here’s a fun and wholesome past time:

And just in time for the holidays, The Sober Student Improv Players. Don’t drink and drive, kids!

Undeclared airs Fridays at 11 p.m. ET; The Larry Sanders Show premieres on IFC January 3rd at 11 p.m. ET.

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.
