I heard about Portlandia through the digital ads playing on The Onion.  It was touted to be a sketch show set in Portland, and it features SNL’s Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein doing the performing.

In all honesty, I’m only halfway through the very first episode, but one thing that immediately hit me was the opening sequence, which is such an incredibly chilled-out piece of noise.

I suppose that if it spawned a second season, it can’t be that bad.
