Portlandia is definitely a shared favorite amongst the Triple Scoop Team, but Season 6 had us holding our heads in shame. The lackluster season experimented by doing things differently, and in our opinions, it did not pay off.
Normally, the each episode is compiled of random skits featuring reoccurring characters. Season 6, however, had entire episodes dedicated to one set of characters. While this doesn’t seem so bad on paper (or online blog), it did not hold up through the television screen. The characters that Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein create are extraordinarily funny, but are not dynamic enough to be focused on for a full 20 minute episode.
But there’s good news! There’s no need to get into any more of that because Season 7 is here and we are back to square one: random skits featuring our favorite reoccurring characters (as well as some great new ones)! Portlandia hasn’t missed a beat and this season’s episodes have been very strong.
Here is a taste of some of our favorite moments of Season 7 so far:
Season 7 of Portlandia will consist of a total of 10 episodes.
As of right now, it is rumored that Season 8 will be the show’s final season and will air in 2018.
