Finally saw "Portlandia"

And oh my god is it funny and right on. For some reason, I was under the impression that it was going to be a "Friends"-esque treatment of twentysomething hipsters, indie people, and alternative folks, in Portland that would be full of fawning and whitewashing. Not The Case.

I can imagine quite a few non-violent and non-confrontational Portlanders suddenly chucking all of that out the window and attacking the two main people in the streets. Then again, as the series points out, 'some' people there are willing to chuck their values and go completely against them when it serves their own self interest, so Portlanders doing so wouldn't be that much of a surprise.
