'Portlandia' (IFC, 1/6)

Wild Flag guitarist Carrie Brownstein and Saturday Night Live mainstay Fred Armisen will continue to lovingly parody the quirks of hipster culture in the second season of their cult-favorite sketch comedy series. Many of their best characters from the first season, such as the feminist book store owners, will pop up again, along with a new duo who claim they can pickle anything. Also, keep an eye out for cameos from rock stars such as Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr and St. Vincent's Annie Clark.
