What to Watch on IFC: September 19 – 25

What to Watch on IFC: September 19 – 25 (photo)

Posted by on

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

In our hit comedy series “Portlandia” life in Portland, Oregon seems to involve asking, “Is it local?,” playing hide and seek and wearing a lot of fleece. Get a different version of life in the Rose City when Gus Van Sant’s “Drugstore Cowboy” airs at 8 p.m. ET and wonder when Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein will do a hilarious drug-store robbing junkie sketch.

Tuesday

If you were disappointed that no one at this year’s Emmys stood on stage only to have a bucket of pig’s blood drop on them mid-acceptance speech causing them to unleash their psychokinetic powers, do we have the movie for you. Brian de Palma’s “Carrie” starts at 8 p.m. ET. Make your teenage daughter watch it with you!

Wednesday

As far as we’re concerned, the only way to get through a mid-week slump is with a healthy dose of “Vice Squad.” Tune in at 9 p.m. ET for your recommended daily allowance of pimps named Ramrod, prostitutes with a heart of gold named Princess, and hard-nosed detectives working together to make the streets safe.

Thursday

We don’t want to stress you out, but there are only nine weeks until Thanksgiving. Before you pull out your decorative gourds and animatronic pilgrims, settle into your couch and watch Daniel Day Lewis in “Last of the Mohicans” at 7:05 p.m. ET or 9:35 p.m. ET.

Friday

Tonight at 11 p.m. ET, it’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for: The season finale of “Whisker Wars” at the World Beard and Mustache Competition in Trondheim, Norway. That’s right, the competition that Beard Team USA and the yearning-to-be-free Austin Facial Hair Club have been working to get to is finally happening. Watch Jack Passion, Aarne Beilefeldt, Myk O’Connor, and team Texas as they go head to head, beard to beard in the final competition of the season.

Saturday

There are many questions to ask yourself on a Saturday morning. For example, coffee or tea? Chicken fried steak or a fiber rich smoothie? Why did you stay up so late watching “Black Sheep”? Put off these challenging by watching a marathon of The Three Stooges. Whatever choices you make are undoubtedly better than the decisions made by Larry, Curly, Shep and Moe. The fun starts at 10:15 a.m. ET.

Sunday

Got the Sunday blues? Tune in to our life of crime double feature to make you really appreciate your cubicle. “Layer Cake” starts at 8 p.m. ET and “Boondock Saints” starts at 10:15 p.m. ET. After watching these two films, come Monday morning you’re going to want to hug your boss.

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
