“Portlandia” Is Amazing

Mark my words: Portlandia will reach the cult heights of Mr. Show. I have no shame in saying it, because I believe it. Aside from the writing and acting (which is super-sharp), I really love what they do with the story structure. Written like a sketch show, Portlandia being solely about life and times in 2011 Portland, Oregon gives it a quasi-sitcom feel, and the jokes (in the pilot anyway) never feel run into the ground. The old lady in the “Hide and Seek” is awesome…

I’m Sure MTV’s “Skins” is Going To Be Great Tonight…

And by “great”, I mean “The obnoxious grimaces on these kids’ ‘party faces’ makes me the first borns of 1995 were sucked into a blackhole.”  The reviews ain’t great, but they’re not terrible.
