Another season of Portlandia is behind us, and oh what a season it was. We laughed. We cried. And we chuckled uncomfortably while glancing nervously around the room. Like every season before it, the latest Portlandia has held a mirror up to ridiculousness of modern American life, but more than ever that same mirror has reflected our social reality in ways that are at once hysterical and sneakily thought-provoking. Here are just a few of the issues they tackled:
So long, America, Portland is out! And yes, the idea of Portland seceding is still less ludicrous than building a wall.
We all saw this coming. Exit gracefully, dudes.
Whatever you stand for, stand for it together. Or with at least one other person.
No matter who we are or how we love, deep down we all have the ability to get stalky.
Modern self-esteem basically hinges on likes, so this isn’t really a stretch at all.
These moments are just the tip of the iceberg, and much more can be found in the full seventh season of #Portlandia, available right now #online and on the #IFC app.
