Portlandia (Season 2) (2012)

It’s more of the same in the second season of IFC’s warped sketch comedy show, with leads Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen finding more gentle satirical targets for their particular brand of near-surreal humor. Brownstein is consistently funny but Armisen is hit-or-miss, which tends to drag down some of the sketches sometimes, but overall if you were a fan of the first season there’s no reason you’d dislike the second. Among many celebrity appearances, Kirsten Wiig’s contributions are the most on-point for the tone of the show, and she’s just as unpredictable here as she always is.
