Portlandia: Amore (7.5)
Play • 1 hr 31 min

We restart our cycle once again with Portlandia's Amore! And as any episode recorded on the eve of a week off school is expected to do, it goes off the rails pretty quickly. We get to the major points of the Rachel-Dratch-starring episode, such as Fred and Giuseppina's ship name (Gred? Friuseppina?), but we also warn of the dangers of Portuguese businessmen, maybe accidentally stumble upon secret FBI codes, and talk about the crime family from the fictional Princess Diaries country. And that all happens in the sane part of the episode. Portlandia is probably the least popular of all the shows we cover on this podcast, but we can't stress enough how much we want you to listen to this episode. You don't even have to watch Amore. If you want to skip the boring on-topic bits and get right to the part of the episode that's so crazy and full of in-jokes makes you question why we even recorded it in the first place, head to 42:00 minutes and you'll find references to French reality television, Will falling out of his chair, both of us laughing so hard that there's not that much sound for a full minute, plenty of profanity, a special appearance by both of our fans (like, wind fans. Not people who are fans of us), and us recalling our very first inside joke. Not to be missed.

Join us (and Audrey!) next week for a (hopefully less hectic) episode covering "Debbie" from Brooklyn Nine-Nine! Finally, some justification for our constant mentioning of cocaine.
