Friday, July 20, 2012: Portlandia

Friday, July 20, 2012: <i>Portlandia</i>

If your summer hasn't been quite quirky enough, Portlandia is back for an hour-long special with enough extras and celebrity cameos to hold you over until next season.

This is no ordinary summer re-run, this is Portlandia: The Brunch Special, which will show last season's finale, "Brunch Village," followed by a behind-the-scenes look at director Jonathan Krisel's personal quest for the best marionberry pancakes Oregon can make. Krisel seems about as eccentric as you would expect someone directing Portlandia to be, and this special feature really plays as an extended sketch of its own. It's worth watching if you really miss the show and loved the brunch episode, or pancakes in general. Anyone who's not a huge fan may not really enjoy the time spent following Krisel around. Although the appearances from executive producer Lorne Michaels and Food Network's Bobby Flay, who is hilarious playing himself, are definitely something to see.

Portlandia: The Brunch Special is on tonight at 11 PM on IFC.
