Towards the end of the first season of Portlandia I felt like they were beginning to miss the mark. Not only that, but it seemed like they were making a lot of crazy things up towards the end. Interestingly enough, Netflix recently updated to season 2 of Portlandia and I was very hesitant to watch, but I did anyway.
To be honest, I’m kind of glad that I did because I got to see that they were beginning to capture some of the truth of how “weird” Portland really is. The video above just made me laugh because this is almost guaranteed to happen to anyone that lives or commutes through a Portland neighborhood. I know that I’ve seen this happen to two vehicles and I just cut through since they were so hesitant.
I guess we’ll see how the rest of season 2 turns out. ;]
