Posted by on


No need to blaspheme, it’s easy to always look on the bright side of life when “Monty Python’s Life of Brian” airs on IFC. It’s on tonight at 9:45 p.m. ET


“Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai” is a surreal crime drama told as only Jim Jarmusch could. The film stars Forest Whitaker as Ghost Dog, a self-taught samurai and hitman who is obsessed with order and his strict personal moral code, drawn from the philosophies of the Japanese warriors. With action ranging from shoot outs to carrier pigeons and a soundtrack by the RZA the movie has something for everyone. It airs at 8 p.m. ET.


While Terrence Malick works on bringing two more films to the silver screen, catch up on his earlier works to impress your friends and your enemies. “The New World” airs at Wednesday, Nov. 9 at 6:45 a.m. ET and at 3:00 p.m. ET


The award-winning graphic novel “Sin City” comes to life in this live-action feature adaptation from director Robert Rodriguez and creator Frank Miller. Interweaving multiple storylines from the series’ history, this violent crime noir paints the picture of the ultimate town without pity through the eyes of its roughest characters. The movie stars practically everyone from Mickey Rourke to Bruce Willis; Rosario Dawson to Jessica Alba.Things go black and white at 8 p.m. ET.


It’s the “Onion News Network” on a new night. Expect the same slightly terrifying news delivered on a slightly different night. Get into the FactZone at 10/9c.


Just because it is cold out doesn’t mean we can’t show the screwball summer camp classic “Meatballs.” Tune in at 4 p.m. ET for the best Bill Murray performance of his career. Yeah, we said it.


It’s a call-in-sick-to-church-and-watch-IFC Sunday with back-to-back must-see movies. “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” starts at 3:45 p.m. ET, followed by “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” at 5:45 p.m. ET and “The Shining” at 8 p.m. ET. Actually, if you’re watching “The Shining” maybe you shouldn’t call out sick to church as you’ll need all the help you can get to go to sleep later.

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.
