Two words: False Spring. It almost tricked you didn’t it? It lured you outside with the lovely warm weather. You walked in the park, you ordered your coffee iced, you remembered what it felt like to not shiver. You may have worn shorts. Now, don’t you feel like a fool? It’s 41 degrees outside, snow flurries are expected, and your spring jacket is back in the closet with your flip flops and shorts and you’re wearing long underwear. Luckily there are some great shows on IFC this week to give you comfort in the long long winter of your discontent.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Since it is still cold out, we may as well pretend it’s Halloween, right? So we’re showing two of the scariest movies ever starting with “The Vanishing” at 11:15 a.m. ET, followed by George C. Scott in “The Changeling” at 3 p.m. ET.


Wet Russell Crowe will keep you warm on a cold “spring” day. Peter Weir’s movie based on Patrick O’Brian’s book, “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” airs at 6 p.m. ET


Sofia Coppola’s version of Versailles involves Kirsten Dunst dancing to New Order songs with Jason Schwartzman. We would hazard a guess that she didn’t get an A in French history, but we’ll take it and some cake. “Marie Antoinette” airs at 5 p.m. ET.


The Coen Brothers’ classic “Blood Simple” is the story of an unscrupulous private eye hired by Texas bar owner Marty (Dan Hedaya) to murder Marty’s faithless wife Abby (Frances McDormand) and her paramour, Ray (John Getz), one of Marty’s employees. It was the first feature film by the Coens and a must for any film buff.


Put a bird on your Friday with back-to-back-to-back episodes of Portlandia beginning at 8 p.m ET.


What’s your damage, Saturday? Nothing when “Heathers” is on. The black comedy reminds you why you hated high school but loved Christian Slater. Change your name to Heather and tune in tonight at 8 p.m. ET.


It’s Sunday, which is a great day to feel bad about things you can’t control so you’ll be ready to go back to work on Monday so you can organize your desk very neatly. Tune in to “The Last King of Scotland” to see Forest Whitaker in his Oscar winning performance as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin. It starts at 8:30 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.
