This week we are all making like Loverboy and working for the weekend. Specifically we are working for Friday night when Bunk and Comedy Bang! Bang! finally premiere on IFC. Hurry up Friday!

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

In “Lord of War” Nicholas Cage stars as Yuri Orlov an opportunistic businessman who stumbled into a gold mine after the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union. Orlov’s exploits in the arms business quickly made him a very rich man, but they’ve also led to some unwanted attention from Jack Valentine (Ethan Hawke), an Interpol agent who is convinced Orlov isn’t playing by the rules. It airs at 10;15 p.m. ET.

Tuesday

Much like The Blues Brothers Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus believe they are on a mission from God. But instead of singing the blues in matching suits, these two brothers begin killing members of Boston’s underworld, just as God wanted. “The Boondock Saints” starts at 10:15 p.m. ET.

Wednesday

On Tuesday at 8/7c we’re showing “Kill Bill: Vol. 1” and tonight we’re showing the second half. Yep start practicing killing a man with one hand, because we’re showing “Kill Bill: Vol. 2” starting at 8/7c. Watch as The Bride (Uma Thurman) takes down her former boss (David Carradine), his younger brother (Michael Madsen) and Daryl Hannah, to boot.

Thursday

The alien invasion in “District 9” doesn’t involve carving mountains out of mashed potatoes or enlisting Will Smith or Ben Affleck to save the world. Instead the aliens are all put into a refugee camp in South Africa under the control of a multinational corporation. Everything changes though when a field operative (Sharlto Copley) contracts a mysterious virus that begins to change his DNA. Tune in at 8/7c.

Friday

It’s the night we’ve all been waiting for: Comedy Bang! Bang! premieres at 10 p.m. ET followed by Bunk at 10:30 p.m. ET. Set your DVR, send your invitations, order catering, it’s all happening!

Saturday

Don’t panic and pack a towel because we’re showing “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” at 8 p.m ET.

Sunday

You don’t want to miss Good Guys Wear Black when it starts at 6/5c, because if you did miss it, Chuck Norris would hunt you and then Chuck Norris would find you. And you don’t want Chuck Norris to find you.

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.

It’s the final countdown to Christmas and thanks to IFC’s movie marathon all Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, you can revel in classic ’80s films AND find inspiration for your last-minute gifts. Here are our recommendations, if you need a head start:

Musical Instrument

Great analog entertainment substitute when you refuse to give your kid the Nintendo Switch they’ve been drooling over.

Breakfast In Bed

Any significant other or child would appreciate these Uncle Buck-approved flapjacks. Just make sure you’re not stuck on clean up duty.

Cocktail Supplies

You’ll need them to get through the holidays.

Dance Lessons

So you can learn to shake-shake-shake (unless you know ghosts willing to lend a hand).

Comfy Clothes

With all the holiday meals, there may be some…embigenning.



Get even more great inspiration all Christmas Eve and Day on IFC, and remember…
