For some reason, I talked myself into buying the "Portlandia, a Guide for Visitors" book a while back, and it wasn't especially entertaining. Just felt like a watered-down rehash of the show.
I suppose there's a joke in there about hipsters and "Portlandia's so over, man!" but I can't quite figure it out.
EDIT: Wait a minute, there's also a Portlandia cookbook coming out this fall? How many tie-in books are they going to squeeze out of this show? I hope that Spike at least gets one chapter in the cookbook that's a little anarchy-ey.
