It’s officially fall, which we are pretty sure means that things are falling from the sky. Whether it’s acorns or leaves or squirrels or whatever doesn’t really matter. All we know is that we’re staying inside where it’s safe and watching television.

Here’s what to watch this week on IFC:

Monday

Don’t Panic and pack a towel, because we’re showing Douglas Adams’ “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” at 8/7c. The movie stars Sherlock star Martin Freeman as a mere human who wakes to find that the Earth (and worse, his house) is about to be destroyed to build an intergalactic highway. Luckily his extraterrestrial friend (Mos Def) saves him and they begin an interstellar journey hitchhiking to the ends of the universe.

Tuesday

Clear your calendar to watch the first on-screen team-up of martial arts legends Jackie Chan and Jet Li in “The Forbidden Kingdom” at 8/7 c. In the film a teenager (Michael Angarano) travels back in time to help legendary martial-artists free the Monkey King, but most people watch to see the living legends kick ass.

Wednesday

Ready for terror? We’re showing Rob Zombie’s “The Devil’s Rejects” at 8/7c. The film follows up Zombie’s 2003 psychedelic horror flick, “House of 1000 Corpses.” Now a vengeful sheriff and two bounty hunters track a murderous family on the run. You know you want to watch.

Thursday

Tonight at 8/7c we’re showing Sylvester Stallone’s brilliantly bloody return to one of his most famous roles “Rambo”. In this installment, John Rambo (Stallone) calls upon his long-buried but lethal skills to rescue a missionary (Julie Benz) and her comrades from the Burmese army.

Friday

Watch Denzel Washington’s Oscar-winning turn as the ultimate corrupt cop in “Training Day” at 8/7c. Ethan Hawke stars as Washington’s rookie sidekick who has no idea what’s in for him when he is assigned to work with Washington, who wants to include him in his schemes.

Saturday

Spend Saturday night practicing your “Napoleon Dynamite” dance moves and shouting out your favorite quotes “Well, you have a sweet bike. And you’re really good at hooking up with chicks like this one, “Plus you’re like the only guy at school who has a mustache.” See you at 8/7c.

Sunday

Want to know how to do Sunday the right way? Watch back-to-back episodes of Arrested Development while sitting on your couch. The fun starts at noon ET.

Final Countdown

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

Rev Up

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.

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.
