Zezen (talk) , 1 September 2017 (UTC) I think something should be said about the opening credits beyond just what *song* is used.
Something like "montage of people and places around town, both prominent and mundane" -- do we need a source to add that?

188.8.131.52 (talk) , 9 July 2015 (UTC) I think it would be beneficial to have a section on the various characters in the show, since they do have different personalities, and it would help complete the article to discuss them. --184.108.40.206 (talk) , 26 January 2014 (UTC) Yes, there should be something about what the actual citizens of Portland think of the show, and how it may be having negative local effects from more people coming here.
I am not personally qualified to write such a section, but I will include an incomplete list of characters to start some discussion. Jason Mc Huff (talk) , (UTC) I am also missing this basic info on that being a spoof of Social Justice Warriors, triggered Hipsters and such.
This point was eloquently made to me by Monica Drake, a Portland-based novelist, lecturer, and critic.
"The shallow, mocking style of humor that's the signature move of Portlandia's sketch comedy is inherently a kind of insidious way to tear down the work of people who aim for conscious living," Let us mention it.If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the ongoing discussions., 16 September 2010 (UTC) I saw hardly any mention of the slant of the show, although the blatantly anti-liberal humor of the Feminist bookstore sketches is so over the top.Saying the media can/do not explain what it is about does not answer the question, I believe it is on it's second series so something must be happening!.124 (talk) , 28 January 2012 (UTC) It's not really "about" anything, it's a sketch comedy show.I'm about as liberal as they come, and I make jokes about liberal things all the time. If they really wanted to make an anti-liberal, anti-gay, anti-feminist show, then they wouldn't make a show celebrating Portland.
