We’ve all been there: You’re parked on the couch, looking for something to watch, when all of a sudden you remember a show everyone’s been talking about and decide to give it a shot. Two days and three Chinese food deliveries later, you realize that even though you’ve been more than entertained over the last 48 hours, your eyes can no longer focus on objects and your legs have atrophied.
You have become addicted to a new show.
Maybe in your case it was Lost. Maybe it was Friday Night Lights. Perhaps it was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. For Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein of IFC’s sketch show Portlandia, it’s one of the most dangerously addictive shows of all time: Battlestar Galactica.
Funny, they seemed to be hunting down show creator Ronald D. Moore for MORE Battlestar Galactica instead of asking him to change the finale. Zing! (Confession: I never finished the series under guidance from friends who did and were very disappointed. I stopped with Season 3. And I’m happy I did.)
Portlandia returns for Season 2 on January 6 at 10pm on IFC.
