The 5 Funniest Moments in SNL’s Star Wars Parody


Posted by on

Another day, another Star Wars trailer parody. This time SNL gives us a glimpse of what life might actually be like for our favorite heroes from a galaxy far, far away 30 years after we last saw them. It may be time to face off against the Empire again, but it’s going to take our aging rebels a little longer to get things going this time around. Here are five things we loved about SNL‘s Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoof.

5. Taran Killam’s aging Han Solo

Han Solo SNL

The most famous scruffy-looking nerfherder in the galaxy may be older, but he still has swagger even when he’s ordering the “early bird” special.

4. Luke’s pill case

Star Wars Pillbox

Being a Jedi takes a lot of energy, and at Luke’s age, he can use all the help he can get.

3. Leia’s technology issues

Princess Leia SNL

The Princess has the same problems programming R2-D2 that your parents had with their VCR.

2. The Lightsaber walker

Sure, The Force is all powerful, but we doubt it helps an artifact like Luke with his balance issues.

1. The Falcon’s blinker

Han may not be able to do anything in 12 parsecs anymore, but that won’t stop him from flying around the galaxy in the Millennium Falcon. And so what if he forgets to turn off his blinker? He’s Han Solo.

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.
