The Birthday Boys: “Molly Ringwald” Recaps “Going All the Way”


Posted by on

By Celebrity Recapper Molly Ringwald

Hello! I’m Hollywood celebrity Molly Ringwald. The Birthday Boys asked me to recap episode nine of their show. I’m not exactly sure why they asked me. I’ve actually never heard of these guys let alone met them… Maybe I’ll understand why they asked me as I watch and recap the episode! Anyway, here it goes!

The episode starts off with a bunch of high schoolers trying to lose their virginity the day of graduation. Hmmm… Maybe The Birthday Boys thought since I used to star in a bunch of movies that take place in high school that it would be appropriate for me to recap this episode? I don’t know though. That’s a pretty weak connection.

Next, we have a piece about how the modern family continues to change. A family can consist of just ten dads. This made me smile. That’s why these guys asked me to recap this episode! Family is really important to me… but how would they know that?

Alright, now there’s a scene about sketch artists. In my free time, I love painting. But that’s something only really close friends know about me, and I don’t even know or like The Birthday Boys. Creepy. Why did they ask me to do this???

Okay… There’s a sketch about the creators of Coca Cola. Coke is known for having a red can and I’m known for having red hair. This is, hands down, the strongest connection I’ve had to this show so far. I think this is why these guys asked me to recap!

Never mind. Back to the sketch artists. Do The Birthday Boys even know who I am? Why are they doing this to me??

Oh wait… The last sketch is about a Dad that goes to prom with his son. It’s loosely based on my movie Pretty in Pink. That’s why they asked me??! Those idiots. This sketch is gross. It didn’t make me laugh once. A Dad goes down on his son. What the fuck?? The Birthday Boys wasted my fucking time! I’m a Hollywood celebrity God damn it!!!! This can’t be why they asked me to do this…. Right? No… That can’t be it. It’s gotta be cause of the Coke sketch. That’s why! Don’t forget, the Coke can is red just like my hair!

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.
