Portlandia (Season 3) (2013)

This is probably my favorite season of this distinctive, downright surreal sketch comedy show. Both leads Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen are at the top of their respective games here, and the writing is some of its funniest so far. Episodes like “Take Back MTV,” “Nina’s Birthday” and “The Temp” are great examples of the show’s overall strengths, from the character work to the comedic acting to the clever writing. A parade of guest stars that includes Chloe Sevigny, Jeff Goldblum and a pitch-perfect Roseanne Barr manages to make the show even better.
