Season 3 of "Portlandia" kicked off Friday on IFC with two back-to-back episodes, "Take Aback MTV," and "Missionaries." Of the two, I adopted the additional one, which featured a clever, beautifully edited stand-alone account -- a banquet affair that starts with altercation of admired TV shows -- "Breaking Bad," "Game of Thrones," "Downton Abbey," "True Blood," etc. -- and devolves into a choir of "Spoiler alert!" and "No spoilers!" objections. The abstraction is absolutely relevant, as anybody who has approved to allocution about "The Wire" and agnate obsessively adored alternation knows. And the accretion was funny, as anybody went abysmal into Spoilerville: she's her sister and her daughter!

Carrie Brownstein (unsurprisingly, because her music background) agreed: "Certainly MTV was an important allotment of my childhood, and it helped affectionate of breeding and augment my attraction with music as a kid... I don't begrudge or accept any abrogating animosity appear MTV now. I anticipate it's affectionate of a altered time and a altered era, so it's fine."
