Maybe they should have used this clip?

This makes about as much sense as utilizing Dexter in anatomy classes.

Entertaining video though.  May just make me try the show again.

Having sat through many a government training class my guess is they're using it on class breaks for simple entertainment purposes.

Or CSI Miami to train academy classes.

Where's the outrage? Why isn't this being treated the same as the IRS?

Because the FBI catches those nasty Muslim turrists. And by "Catch" I mean "Set up with a paid informant".

Why does the IRS need to commission Star Trek parodies? Who can fathom the government bureaucrat mind?

That is pretty awesome.

IMO, nothing wrong with this at all.  If the sketch drives home the point and does so in an entertaining manner, why shouldn't they use it.

Years ago i was in the in Navy and attended a course on amphibious warfare.  After the instructor covered the basic steps of the amphibious warfare process (planning, embarkation, rehearsal, movement, and assault), he showed the landing sequence from Saving Private Ryan.

Incorrect recycling?  Like this repeated green?

They certainly aren't using "Portlandia" to teach FBI agents how to create a funny show.

/only watched one episode
//laughed exactly once
///and it was a little "heh" kind of guffaw, not actual laughter

I've forced myself to sit through two seasons, and I just don't get it.  I'm sure it's funny for people who live in Oregon.

Meh. I see why others might be amused, but I don't watch it. I've seen some of the people they satire, and they're fairly spot on. So, it's annoyingly lifelike.

I liked season one but it kind of went into Tim and Eric land after that and I gave up on it.

Too hipster.

/the show hits the sweet spot of hipsterdom
//I am in that sweet spot
///Carrie Brownstein is attractive

I farking love this show.  First season was hard to get into, but once I got into it, I like even the bad stuff, now.

Also, the show is funny because it makes fun of people LESS hardcore than I.

/Seriously, pretty much every sketch is applicable to me, in some way.
//Also, Kumail Nanjiani is much much funnier OFF the show, as he only plays annoying characters on it.

FBI Procedures For Dealing With Domestic Terrorism/Espionage/IP Theft:

Step One - Put a bird on it.
Step Two - Call it art.

I visited your fair city.  I have to say that is the whitest place I've ever been to in my life.  Embarrassingly white.   White supremacists should be sentenced to spending a month there.

But there is something endearing about it.  It's so earnest.
