What to Watch on IFC: December 13 – 19

What to Watch on IFC: December 13 – 19 (photo)

Posted by on

As we approach the end of the holiday season, your only job is to stay on Santa’s good side for just one and a half more weeks. That means no kissing the cutie under the mistletoe unless she’s your steady sweetie, no spiking the eggnog unless everyone is a consenting adult, and no singing “Winter Wonderland” unless you want to get socked in the nose. The safest thing to do is to stay inside all day, all night, and watch IFC. Luckily, we have some great shows, movies, and original programming to fill the many hours until Santa gets done checking that list (twice) and mistakes you for someone on the Nice List.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Stop studying for finals and watch Undeclared. It’s what college is all about. We have three back-to-back episodes starting at 10:30 p.m. ET

Tuesday

Joaquin Phoenix stars in Buffalo Soldiers at 11:30 p.m. ET. Awww, remember when he was all cute and professional and not completely loony tunes pulling elaborate pranks for attention publicity?

Wednesday

It shouldn’t be a surprise that the director of Bug also directed Exorcist. Watch Ashley Judd get very uncomfortable beginning at 7:45 p.m. ET.

Thursday

Bullet is on the air at 8 p.m. ET, just in time to resurrect our look at Tupac vs Mickey Rourke fan art and get some inspired Christmas ideas.

Friday

The follow up to Tobe Hooper’s “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was not a story about a adorably bunny and a clumsy kitten running away to the Land of Dairy Queen, but was instead Eaten Alive. It airs tonight at midnight, natch. (*No bunnies or kitties were hurt during the making of this movie. Just some leggy blondes. No biggie.)

Saturday

Save yourself the trouble of writing an apology letter to your boss for mistaking his potted palm for a potty by skipping the office holiday party and watching our double feature instead. Shadow of the Vampire kicks things off at 8 p.m. ET and Pan’s Labyrinth begins at 10 p.m.

Sunday

If you ignored our sage advice and went to the office party, nurse your hangover with a steady stream of Arrested Development all day and Undeclared and Todd Margaret all night. Try not to think about how disappointed Santa Claus is in your behavior and instead focus on how he is going to get your 96-inch plasma TV down the chimney.

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…
