What to Watch on IFC: May 9 – 15

What to Watch on IFC: May 9 – 15 (photo)

Posted by on

We are all excited for our new shows to start. Between “Whisker Wars,” “Young, Broke, And Beautiful,” and “Rhett and Link: Commercial Kings,” we know that come June we will be spending warm summer days indoors watching. But for now, we wait. Luckily there are plenty of great things to watch to help us while away the hours until “Whisker Wars.”

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


“Freaks & Geeks” and “Undeclared” are even better when shown back-to-back. Tune in at 6 p.m. ET for the pilot episode and see where all the freaks and geeks started. Then, at 7 p.m. catch another great episode of “Undeclared.” You can thank us later.


Catch Julian Schnabel’s “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” at 1:45 p.m. ET. The heartbreaking and beautiful work is the astonishing true-life story of Jean-Dominic Bauby — a man who held the world in his palm, lost everything to sudden paralysis at 43 years old, and somehow found the strength to rebound.


Don’t Panic: “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” airs at 3:45 p.m. ET. If you didn’t get the joke, you should definitely watch.


The FDA is now recommending at least one dose of Quentin Tarantino a day for longevity, liver function, and bone strength. Get your RDA when “Reservoir Dogs” airs at 8 p.m. ET.


Be cool, stay in school. Or at least learn your American history. The Whitest Kids U’Know make it easy with their film “The Civil War on Drugs.” Chapter 5 airs tonight at 10:30 p.m. ET.


If you loved “Black Swan” then you owe it to yourself to watch director Darren Aronofsky’s earlier work, “Requiem for a Dream.” It’s darker, harsher, and has fewer ballerinas, but a lot more drugs. It airs at 10 p.m. ET.


Of course you’re going to watch “Alien” every time it airs, because it is one of the scariest and best horror movies ever. So don’t even bother pretending that you’re not going to watch it when it airs at 8 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.
