    sure it's funny to you if you are from portland. or any city with hipsters. this is probably the most culturally-aware (more NPR than Jersey Shore) sketch show that's on right now. really witty and sometimes silly. these are our times. might be a bit of a stretch for audiences in the "heartland."

    Now in its second season, Portlandia has matured into a comedic concoction that is consistently pleasing.

    The ratio of hit-to-miss is much better in season two, however, as musician-comedians Armisen and Brownstein have more clearly found their groove.
