Archer on fX
« on: February 13, 2010, 05:30 PM »
I've been watching the new series "Archer" on the fX network, and it's been surprisingly good.  It's by a group that did some [adult swim] programs - Frisky Dingo and Sealab 2021.  The humor is dark and irreverent.  Lots of adult humor.  And each episode except the first has had me laughing.  It sticks to a continuity unlike Sealab, and it's more couched in reality than Dingo.  Anyway, I highly recommend it.

I've been watching this and love it.  It's hilarious.  I think my favorite eps were this week's and the one where Sterling got the call girl for Cyril.

Holy **** did last night's Archer earn a massive THUMBS UP.

"Epic poonhoundery."

That was a great episode.  Is next week the season finale for this?

Excellent.  That show is one of the funniest things I've seen on TV in a long time and it would be a shame to see it get canned.

Can't wait to see this tonight.  I almost picked up season 1 on DVD but it was kind of expensive so I'm waiting, but I'll definitely grab it at some point.

Countess Von Fingerbang! 

So, I don't think Archer missed a beat from season 1.  I thought the new ep was funny as ****.

Yeah, it was awesome...except for the glaring lack of Carol/Cheryl. And what about the crazy doctor? The supporting characters on this show are unbelievable.

I hope they play up that Cyril-is-crazy thing all season because that was some funny stuff.

Now THAT was some funny ass Archer!

"He'd suffocate..."

BRILLIANT.  I laughed out loud probably a dozen times.

"Give back the bunny, Lenny"  ;D

They are frigging roaring out of the gate this year. I can't believe I missed last week's episode.

That episode had everything - Carol/Cheryl, Pam, the Doctor, Woodhouse, pure gold.

WTF is Maggie Wheeler though?
