Portlandia, IFC's hipster-lampooning celebration of the titular Oregon city, returns Friday Jan. 6 for its second season.

Co-creators and stars Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein are back with more eccentric inhabitants and plenty of guest stars -- Tim Robbins, Kristen Wiig and Andy Samberg among them.

And ahead of the debut, IFC has put the season's second episode online. The previously reported ode to Battlestar Gallactica, "One Moore Episode," features Jeff Goldblum as the proprietor of a knot store, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder as himself and a slew of Gallactica alums.

Though the episode takes random turns to an "Allergy Pride Parade," a ritualistic orgy and a talking tattoo version of Vedder, the through line is Fred and Carrie's burgeoning obsession with Battlestar Gallactica. After watching the entire run of the Syfy series in a week, they enlist a man they believe to be showrunner Ronald D. Moore to right an additional episode.
