Well…we either survived the Rapture, or it’s really really subtle. Either way we’re going to need some time in front of the warming glow of the television to think about what we’ve done.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


One of the best-loved films from the idiosyncratic British film studio Ealing Pictures gets an update from the equally idiosyncratic filmmaking team of Joel and Ethan Coen. “The Ladykillers” stars Tom Hanks, Marlon Wayans, and Irma P. Hall and airs at 3:45 p.m. ET.


Re-live your misspent youth through “House Party” the iconic comedy about a party gone wrong starring 80s rap sensations Kid N’ Play. the party starts at 8 p.m. ET. Don’t be late


Order some chana masala and dosas for breakfast then settle in for your Bollywood fix when IFC’s own “Bollywood Hero,” starring Saturday Night Live’s Chris Kattan, starts at 8:45 a.m. ET.


As you wait for Terrence Malick’s “Tree of Life” to play in a theater near you, brush up on his back catalogue and watch his film “The New World” at 5 p.m. ET.


The fifth and final season of the Whitest Kids U’Know continues on IFC at 10:30 p.m. ET. Tune in for the latest chapter in the Civil War on Drugs and an ode to General Electric and Citigroup.


Spend Saturday afternoon at the movies when Nicolas Roeg’s “Walkabout” airs at 1:45 p.m. ET. David Gulpilil stars as an aboriginal boy who helps two young city children after they are stranded in Australia’s outback.


We’re pretty sure it’s not heretical to watch Monty Python’s “Life of Brian” on a Sunday. And if it is? Well, you will just have to remember to always look on the bright side of life:

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.
