What to Watch on IFC: December 27 – January 1

It’s that magical week between Christmas and New Year’s when anyone who is working is wildly unhappy about it. So let’s all shut our computers and go sit on the couch with the television turned to IFC while our moms bring us snacks when we yell really loudly. A (lazy) people united, will never be defeated.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Tuesday

If you like Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” you’re sure to like “The Boondock Saints.” In this wild vigilante thriller, two Catholic men acting on God’s will, set out to kill pretty much everyone. Brothers Conner and Murphy MacManus (Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus) take to performing their divine duty against the Russian mob. They massacre a bunch of unsuspecting Mafioso in a scene of absurd violence, then they let more blood in a mass killing of porn-shop customers. Instead of getting thrown in jail, they are dubbed “saints” by the Boston Herald, and they are praised by brilliant, tortured, and gay FBI agent Paul Smecker (Willem Dafoe). The fun starts at 8 p.m. ET.

Wednesday

In from “From Dusk Till Dawn,” which airs tonight at 8 p.m. ET, director Robert Rodriguez and screenwriter Quentin Tarantino, Tarantino stars with George Clooney as a pair of bad-to-the-bone brothers named Seth and Richie Gecko. After a string of robberies that left a river of blood in the Geckos’ wake, the sadistic siblings head to Mexico to live the good life. To get over the border, they kidnap Jacob Fuller, a widowed preacher played by Harvey Keitel, and his two children, Kate (Juliette Lewis) and Scott (Ernest Liu). Once south of the border, the quintet park their RV at a rough-and-tumble trucker bar called The Titty Twister, where Seth and Richie are supposed to meet a local thug. After a couple of drinks, they realize that they’re not in a typical bar, as the entire place begins to teem with vicious, blood-sucking vampires. And then the fun really starts.

Thursday

When you watch “Scary Movie” you’ll die laughing. From the mind that brought you “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka” comes this parody of the teen slasher flick. As you might expect, a group of teenagers — not-terribly-bright Buffy (Shannon Elizabeth), her best friend Brenda (Regina Hall), stoner Shorty (Marlon Wayans), fey football player Ray (Shawn Wayans), loudmouthed Greg (Lochlyn Munro), sexually overexcited Bobby (Jon Abrahams), and his prim girlfriend Cindy (Anna Faris) — are on the run from a maniacal killer who is looking for revenge after the kids accidentally kill a man following an auto accident. It airs at 8 and 10 p.m. ET.

Friday

Look, we know that some people like to go out on Friday nights, but we all know that is amateur night, right? We know that real professionals go out on Tuesdays and stay home on Fridays. To revel in that life choice, we are showing back-to-back episodes of “Arrested Development” beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, followed by two episodes of David Cross as “Todd Margaret.” We now what’s up …and it’s staying in on Fridays.

Saturday

It’s New Year’s Eve, which around these parts means one thing: Three Stooges marathon! Starting at 6 p.m. ET and running until the wee hours of the new year, we will be airing nothing but the best of Larry, Curly, Moe, and sometimes Shep. It’s an IFC tradition!

Sunday

Happy New Year’s Day! You may have made some poor decisions last night (tequila, spray cheese and gummi bears never mix, okay?) so to help nurse the first hangover of 2012, we’re showing an all day marathon of “The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.” You know that leaving the couch would be the worst decision of all.

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.

Catch up on Portlandia’s final episodes on demand and at IFC.com

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.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.
