What to Watch on IFC: July 18 – July 24

What to Watch on IFC: July 18 – July 24 (photo)

Posted by on

It’s getting hot in here, but leave on all your clothes, please. With our unique combination of awesome original shows (Rhett & Link!) and great movies (“Thirteen”! “Pulp Fiction”!) that are 1000% guaranteed* to keep you cool. ( * Results not guaranteed, but we try hard)

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Forget the brain, the forehead is the real center of human intelligence and things only get weirder from there in this 1950s sci-fi inspired film. If you haven’t seen the bizarro camp-fest “Trail of the Screaming Forehead” don’t miss the chance when it airs at 4:15 p.m. ET.


Director Catherine Hardwicke knows how to keep parents up at night with twisted tales of troubled teens acting out. Her film “Thirteen” is horror for the parental set and just good clean fun for the rest of us. It airs at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT


The Eisner Award-winning comic series “Sin City” comes to life in the hands of Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez. Packed with more stars than you can (but probably shouldn’t) shake a stick at, the film is breathtakingly beautiful while putting the graphic in graphic novel. It airs at 8 p.m. ET.


Cancel all your plans (and your neighbor’s plans, too) because we have a Quentin Tarantino double feature: “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction” air back-to-back beginning at 8:05 p.m. ET.


New episodes of “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” and “Young, Broke & Beautiful” start at 10 p.m. ET. Don’t forget to visit at 10:30 p.m. ET for a live web chat with Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal.


Nick Nolte and James Coburn deliver some of the finest work of their respective careers in this powerful but troubling adaptation of Russell Banks’ novel, “Affliction.” It starts at 5:30 p.m. ET.


Miss an episode of “Rhett & Link: Commercial Kings” due to “work” or some other sad excuse for an excuse? Your shot at redemption starts at 1 p.m. ET when we air four episodes back-to-back on a Sunday. No excuses.

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.

Most people measure time in minutes, hours, days, years…At IFC, we measure it in sketches. And nothing takes us way (waaaaaay) back like Portlandia sketches. Yes, there’s a Portlandia milepost from every season that changed the way we think, behave, and pickle things. In honor of Portlandia’s 8th and final season, Subaru presents a few of our favorites.


Put A Bird On It

Portlandia enters the pop-culture lexicon and inspires us to put birds on literally everything.

Colin the Chicken

Who’s your chicken, really? Behold the emerging locavore trend captured perfectly to the nth degree.

Dream Of The ’90s

This treatise on Portland made it clear that “the dream” was alive and well.

No You Go

We Americans spend most of our lives in cars. Fortunately, there’s a Portlandia sketch for every automotive situation.

A-O River!

We learned all our outdoor survival skills from Kath and Dave.

One More Episode

The true birth of binge watching, pre-Netflix. And what you’ll do once Season 8 premieres.

Catch up on Portlandia’s best moments before the 8th season premieres January 18th on IFC.
