Holly Richmond at Grist poses the question: “How embarrassingly accurate is Portlandia?”

Her answer: Very. But most of the satire would also skewer urban greenies in Austin, San Francisco and Williamsburg, she said. And, I might add, a slice of the population in most college towns.

She concludes on matters of local, organic food, hot beverages, green reading, animal rights and vigilante biking, the show’s got the urban green lifestyle pretty well pegged. If you haven’t yet, check out the first episode of the show, which premiers tomorrow on the Independent Film Channel.
