Just when you didn't think Portlandia could get any better, along comes season 3. A total arc of off-the-wall humor and satire. LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!!!

As several other reviewers have stated... yes, Season 3 of Portlandia doesn't seem to compare to Season's 1 and 2 in terms of humor. Some sketches were just downright confusing, and possibly a bit boring in repetition (e.g. - the "Portland Milk Advisory Board" sketches).
Nevertheless, a few sketches absolutely hit their mark with the expected humor of Fred and Carrie.

All the recurring characters are there, including a few new ones sprinkled throughout the various episodes, as well as great guests, including Bill Hader as the overly-quirky Birdman in the "Blackout" episode. And though I've heard that Season 4 isn't too great, I'll still look forward to watching it for what it is.

Portlandia Season 3 may not be as good as the first two seasons, but I still found ample opportunities for laughs. Bill Hader's "Birdman" character was hilarious, as were the other guest star characters.

While others may think Portlandia is going downhill, I think it is finding its stride. One of the best sketch comedy shows in recent years.

Make sure you watch the "Portland Tours" special features, hosted by comedian Kumail Nanjiani.

It might be funny to watch a good 1 minute long clip on youtube.. but sitting through 22 minutes is unbearable. I was fast forwarding and couldn't finish disc 1. I hate the Women & Women First bookstore skit and some others.

There is so much more to the Portland area than the limited view of Portlandia.

The is not much to laugh at in Season 3 of Portlandia. It seems Carrie and Fred have lost their way. Some of the sketches are just dumb. There were only a couple that were funny. Most were duds. Don't think it will go much longer . . . that said I do love the looks they come up with for their characters.
