Spoiler alert! This clip from the upcoming third season of IFC's Portlandia is full of spoilers… from other shows and movies. Ever sit around and try to discuss your favorite TV shows and films with other people, some of whom aren't caught up or haven't gotten around to seeing that particular film? That's what the people in this funny scene are doing. And in the process, Portlandia squeaks in some pretty major spoilers from previously aired TV shows.
So while the above spoiler warning is kind of a joke, it's kind of not. Among the shows discussed in the clip - which features TV-loving characters Doug and Claire as they throw a dinner party - are The Wire, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones and some other intense dramas. And they do slip some actual spoilers from some of those series into their conversation, which will be funny to those who have seen the show but probably a little annoying to those who still haven't made it all the way through The Wire.
That's Ronald D. Moore in the bed. Not the creator of Battlestar Galactica, the other Ronald D. Moore (see Season 2 of Portlandia), who wrote "one more episode" of the beloved Sci-Fi series for Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's Doug and Claire. But it's not really Moore at all because I'm pretty sure all of this is just a dream.
What isn't a dream is Portlandia's return, which is set for this Friday, January 4 on IFC.
