Portlandia "Pickathon" Review - AVClub

AVClub: As it enters its sixth season, Portlandia finds itself in an interesting place. IFC announced a few months ago that the show would be coming to an end, but that it wouldn’t be doing so until the end of season eight, giving Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein, and Jonathan Krisel three more years to play around in the odd little sandbox they’ve constructed. It’s a smart move on the network’s part to lock down this talent (given the various other projects its creative team is busy with) and it puts the show in the position of having an end far off in sight but still in sight. Would it decide to push even more boundaries with guaranteed seasons, or will episodes be phoned in with rehashed sketches?

The story is too old to be commented.
