PORTLANDIA Season 4 Comes To DVD!

Portlandia-Season-4I was late to the Portlandia party, but once I began I couldn’t stop and rifled through the first 3 seasons as quick as I had the time for them.  I didn’t manage to watch Season 4 as it aired, but alas, here it comes on DVD for me to check out.  This show consists of some incredibly funny sketch comedy, rivaling that of the legendary Mr. Show series in its style and execution.  There’s some really great guest spots and super fun recurring characters that populate this show’s depiction of Portland, Oregon.  It’s coming to that former top format DVD on August 26.  Pre-order now and read the details of this release from VSC when you scroll down.

LOS ANGELES, CA – On August 26, Video Services Corp.
