It’s fall! Which we’re pretty sure means stuff is going to start falling from the sky, so you should probably stay inside, where it is safe, and watch television. We are just looking out for your best interests.

Here’s what to watch on IFC this week:


His “Slacker” was the quintessential 90s movie, but Richard Linklater didn’t stop there. He gets animated in “Waking Life” at 1:15 p.m. ET. It’s pretty deep for an animated feature.


Christian Slater and Tara Reid come together to investigate the supernatural in Uwe Boll’s “Alone in the Dark.” An otherworldly investigator learns of a secret which could mean the end of civilization as we know it in this thriller based on the popular video game Alone in the Dark. It starts at 10:15 p.m. ET.


Bret Easton Ellis’ dark and violent satire of America in the 1980s “American Psycho” starts at 7 p.m. ET. This unsettling drama with black comic overtones stars Christian Bale as Wall Street’s worse nightmare. Here are some other Christian Bale movies we love.


Nicolas Cage stars as an arms dealer with an ambitious Interpol agent on his tail in “Lord of War” at 7:05 p.m. ET or 9:35 p.m. ET.


Spend Friday night on the border in Robert Rodriguez’s “From Dusk ‘Til Dawn” at 7:45 p.m. ET. Then stay tuned for the original Australian version of “Wilfred” followed by a new episode of “Whisker Wars” at 11 p.m. ET. That’s Friday night done right.


Spend all day grooming your beard, waxing your ‘stache and watching our “Whisker Wars” marathon. The facial hair face off starts at 12:15 p.m. ET.

There’s just something about Steve. Jenniphr Goodman makes her directorial debut with this film about an overweight slacker (Donal Logue) who has an unusual ability to attract the ladies. “The Tao of Steve” starts at 5 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.
