This could mean anything! Portlandia is unpredictable. Instead of trying to guess what the new season will include, we present our wish list for trends, thoughts, and social constructs we simply hope the show will cover: drinking vinegars, "yarnstorming," an overcommitment to Instagram, and foot prisons (a.k.a. uncomfortable shoes).

'Portlandia' Season 2: What to expect

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's hipster-skewering comedy series "Portlandia" premieres its second season on IFC tonight (Jan. 6).As evidenced from the Season 2 episodes we've screened so far, the sketches in "Portlandia" continue to straddle the line between completely outlandish and totally relatable. From DJ nights to dog parks, from ironic tattoos to "Battlestar Galactica" obsessions, Fred and Carrie manage to point out the ridiculousness of the Pacific Northwest.What else should you look out for? Well, a whole lotta famous guest stars.

'Portlandia': Straight outta Portland

Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein talk about their IFC series. Fred Armisen, who is on "Saturday Night Live," and Carrie Brownstein, who was in the band Sleater-Kinney and now leads the band Wild Flag, are the creators and stars of "Portlandia," a strange and beautiful sketch show filmed in Portland, Ore., where Brownstein lives. Its second, longer season begins Friday on IFC, even as the stars have taken their show on the road. (The Los Angeles stop, Jan. 17 at the Echoplex, is sold out.) Like the city in which it's set, the series' tone is both clouded and lovely. There is a sense of celebration that informs even its most cutting pieces, as the pair portray a range of hipsters, hippies and solid citizens grappling — sometimes aggressively, often passive-aggressively — with life in a city that has been often described as one of the nation's most livable, and knows it.
