What to Watch on IFC: April 30 – May 6


Posted by on

It’s the week when April showers make way for May flowers a.k.a. rain is swapped for allergens. Stay inside.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:


Put on your dancing shoes and head to the “Moulin Rouge.” Yep we’re playing Baz Luhrmann’s vibrant musical dramedy at 8/7 c. We’ll be right there with you trying to figure out what gitchy gitchy ya ya hey means.


Get your American history the way it was meant to be learned: Movies. We’re showing “Last of the Mohicans” at 8 and 10 p.m. ET. Go ahead and rip your shirt open while you watch.


The men (Sean Penn, Adrien Brody, Jim Caviezel) of Charlie Company try to take Guadalcanal Island from the Japanese in World War II. It’s “The Thin Red Line” at 8/7c. You can watch the trailer here or rock out at your desk with this:


Nothing gets you ready for the weekend, like prepping for the apocalypse. Load up on MREs and watch Mel Gibson’s “Apocalypto” at 10:15 p.m. ET. As the end of the Mayan civilization draws near, a man makes a desperate bid to escape being a human sacrifice and return to his family and the woman he loves.


“Kingdom of Heaven.” is a boys club. Ridley Scott’s film stars Orlando Bloom, Liam Neeson, Jeremy Irons, and Edward Norton suit up and wage war in this epic-scale historical drama inspired by the events of the Crusades of the 12th century. Battle starts at 10:45 p.m. ET, don’t be late.


A rookie cop (Ethan Hawke) meets a corrupt Los Angeles narcotics officer (Denzel Washington) who wants to include him in his schemes in “Training Day.” It’s a film so nice, we’re showing it twice at 8 and 10:30 p.m. ET.


While we know that the first rule of “Fight Club” is that you do not talk about “Fight Club,” we can’t help but tell you that we are showing the film at 8 and 11 p.m. ET. Watch as Brad Pitt and Ed Norton create an underground club where men can compete in hand-to-hand combat a.k.a. beat the crap out of each other for fun.

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.
