Portlandia

Just gotta say, this show is brilliantly funny.  It's a sketch comedy show about life in Portland.  It makes a lot of fun of the sort of weird, liberal culture of Portland.  Each episode has a sort of main story too, but sketches are interspersed throughout.

It's also as true-to-life as Reno 911 was (in its first few seasons)... in other words, there's no real stretch from reality; it's a spot-on accurate portrayal of Portland.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I haven't yet finished the second season but I agree it's great. I knew I'd like it after the first episode's song, "The dream of the 90s is alive in Portland!"
I didn't know that Netflix had the third season. Awesome.

I think Amy Poehler should reprise her character from the old UCB tv show... "Are you trying to read my diary?!"
