While I was home in Chicago I had a lot of time to just chill in front of the boob tube. There's a station that plays classic reruns, so I watched a lot of M*A*S*H, Mary Tyler Moore, Twilight Zone, etc. There were also a couple of PBS stations where I could watch some really interesting documentaries. When neither of those held my interest, I would resort to my laptop and Netflix on demand. While surfing around I found the series "Portlandia" which is normally shown on the Independent Film Channel. OMG! I got hooked instantly! It's done by Lorne Michaels who has given us "SNL" and "Kids in the Hall." It pokes such great fun at the hipster culture of the Northwest. I used to be a fan of "K.i.t.H." but after watching it and "Portlandia" back to back, I now found it pretty lame. If you get a chance, give it a watch.
