New Brokelandia Episode Plays The Brooklyn Neighborhood Name Game

Sweet, a hilarious new Brokelandia from the cool people over at Brokelyn. This second episode of what I hope will be an ongoing series takes on the Brooklyn neighborhood name game, the G train, the East River Ferry, I think, and juicing parties. They also come up with a few new BK neighborhoods, namely, Mama Jumbo, which is “made up of all the rooftops of all the buildings in Dumbo,” and a new industrial area called Barackabilly. Classic. Now I want other cities to join in the fun. Here are cities semantically ripe for spin-offs: Oaklandia, Orlandia, Chicagolandia. And, I can’t think of anymore. Enjoy the show.

(Also, check out the article that Eric Silver — cowriter and co-star of this episode — wrote for us back in January.) TC mark

    Are the guys who produced Portlandia involved in this or something? Mucho confuso about how much it’s like Portlandia. 

    • Eric Silver

       Nope, we’re not affiliated with Portlandia. I’d call it a loving tribute/spin-off. Hopefully this isn’t TOO MUCH like Portlandia…we’re going for a similar aesthetic, but you know, Brooklyn topics and our own jokes. Thanks for watching!

        Ahhh cool! Well, well done. Definitely get the Portlandia aesthetic for sure. I enjoyed the skit, keep it up! :D

  • Leisa

    Can I call dibs on Chicagolandia? Oh man.

    With all due respect: really? Writing a TC article has been reduced down to throwing a Youtube link up?
