Portlandia - Yeah, I Get It

I love my city.  I love Portland, OR.  Grew up here (moved away to the East Coast for 4 years - liked that very much), came home, got married, started a family. 

Portland is odd.  Portland is laid back.  Portland is odd - oh wait, I said that already. 

There's a new show starting tonight on the IFC Channel called "Portlandia". (Here's a delightful picture of the statue Portlandia herself as she sits atop the entry to City Hall...)

Kinda creepy.  Kinda cool.

I think they got it.  I do believe Fred Armisen (SNL), Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) and Jonathan Krisel (SNL) feel the silliness that is Portland and portrayed it accurately.  If the "show" comes across as absurd, I don't care.  "Portlandia" is a great take on my town.  I love it.
