Portlandia Season 2

Portlandia is the show about hipsters who move to Oregon and the locals who politely put up with them. The first episode started like “Invasion Of The Body Snatchers” where no matter where a couple goes, they just can’t get away from DJs. (Naturally I thought this was funny.)

The strong point of the show is making fun of people who cannot take a joke. The humorless couple at the bookstore is back, giving a hard time to an old guy just trying to make a living. An upscale couple put on an remarkable presentation to get their unremarkable kid into the right private school. The people I know in Portland are always trying to top it with something they really experienced.
