The second season of Portlandia, Fred Armisen’s and Carrie Brownstein’s endearingly quirky sketch comedy show, is finally out on DVD!
In the second season, some of Portlandia’s most loved and notable characters from season one return. You know, the people who brought you memorable catchphrases such as “Put a Bird On It” and “Cacao”! They are back, along with Portland’s trusty openly reggae bass playing Mayor (Kyle MacLachlan); Peter and Nance, Spyke, the militant bike messenger, Bryce Shivers and Lisa Eversman, who aren’t putting birds on things anymore, and, of course, Toni and Candace, the shopkeepers of the feminist bookstore Women and Women First.
Many new residents moved into Portlandia for the show’s season two, including the “Sanitation Twins,” some serious Battlestar Galactica fans, and Kevin the Cat. Plus a whole new crop of guest stars graced Portlandia with their presence, including Pearl Jam’s Eddie Vedder, Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig, Joanna Newsom, Annie Clark a.k.a. St. Vincent, Miranda July, Isaac Brock from Modest Mouse, Tim Robbins, and many more.
Fans also get a bunch of extras. The DVD comes with commentary with Fred, Carrie and director Jonathan Krisel over four episodes. You’ll also get behind-the-scenes footage and highlights from Portlandia: The Tour and a peek at the making of the show as well as deleted scenes. Also on the DVD are two specials: “The Brunch Village: Director’s Cut” and an “Introduction to Portlandia.”
