Chat with Fred and Carrie during “Portlandia” premiere


Posted by on

As you are well aware, “Portlandia” returns to IFC this Friday, January 6th at 10pm ET/PT. What you didn’t know is that when the show premieres, you can live chat with the show’s stars and creators Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. Ladies and gentlemen, we live in the future!

How will this trip to the future happen? This Friday, IFC is launching a live, dual-screen experience, IFC Sync, in conjunction with the second season premiere of our hit comedy series, “Portlandia.” Fred and Carrie will be online to chat with fans watching the show, share their experiences and stories from the making of “Portlandia,” and answering questions, throughout Friday’s debut.

Fans can access IFC Sync via their Facebook login and start chatting with Fred and Carrie. You can also check out the characters page meet the new and unique personalities that populate the world of Portlandia (Lance! Toni! Bryce!).

Fans can also earn points by participating in live chats and answering trivia questions that are time-
coded to scenes within each new episode every Friday night at 10 p.m., ET/PT. Points can also be
earned by completing games and creating a Portlandia avatar and posting the results on Facebook,
both part of our super awesome and time wasting Portlandia Activity Book. As participants earn more points, they will be entered into a lottery to win cool prizes, including limited-edition Portlandia posters, DVD sets of season one and show-themed lunch bags. Virtual badges can also be earned by achieving specific point levels. There will also be a Facebook-based Leaderboard which tallies users’ points and ranks them among all players so we know who are the winners and the losers. Don’t worry when you’re in Portlandia, you’re all winners.

IFC Sync is an online interactive companion that engages users in a conversation around what’s airing on the network in real time, and allows users to chat with show personalities, view video clips, answer show-specific trivia questions, and earn points to win real and virtual prizes. IFC Sync will be enabled during each of the ten episodes making up Portlandia’s second season, with future conversations hosted by an IFC moderator.

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.
