Title: Archer on fX
Post by: BillCable 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.

"Climb down off that rag"

"Oh my God... looks like Jonestown in here."

Just one zinger after another.  I was howling.

It is indeed... however they got picked up for a second 13-episode season.

Post by: efranks on March 13, 2010, 08:33 PM
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.

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.

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?

Damn, I missed it completely. I have a hard time remembering to watch that show live. Wish there wasn't such a delay in putting them On-Demand.

Has anyone bought the DVD of Season 1? Was the unaired pilot funny?
Title: Re: Archer on fX
Post by: BillCable on March 25, 2011, 01:56 PM
That's what DVRs are for.   ;)

Netflix has the DVD on streaming, but I didn't see any unaired pilot.  There's an episode called "Mole Hunt (pilot)" that actually did air.  Maybe they kept the other pilot off Netflix, though.

That was one damned solid episode.  I had tears in my eyes during the warehouse scene.  "Survey Says!"

Looks like they're contemplating a multi-season renewal for the show:

It was like my dream episode...Pam and Cheryl uber alles!

Glad to have caught the re-airing of last week's as well, pure comedy gold.

This show is on freaking fire this season!

Awesome!  Byron.  I didn't even think to check google for that.  Thanks, Bill.

Excellent episode again last night.

I was in Target the other day and looked at the Season 1 DVD set and listed on the package is an unaired pilot so I may have to pick that up sometime and watch it.

"My car is slowing down for no apparent reason.  Must be out of...carburetor"  And Malory's comeback to Gillette about the "two queens" in his hotel room.

Last night's episode was okay, not the best this season, but it had some great quotes and a lot of them involved Gillette.  And Benoit.  Balls.

Another strong effort last night, can't believe next week is the Season Finale already. Then again, I like the short seasons. There's nothing worse than a show treading water just to fill out the schedule. (Office, Family Guy, etc)

Not a gut-buster finale, but ended on a solid note. Kind of a screw for Sterling though. I hate that cyborg-douche.

Not sure I caught the joke with Cheryl's hairstyle that she hated - was it just like Katya's?

Loved the Creeger Rape-Van.

Archer gets a 4th season (http://www.darkhorizons.com/news/23148/-archer-scores-a-fourth-season)

I'm psyched to see the viewership growing like it is.  3.3 million is almost cracking the top 25 cable programs for the week.

FX has a good business model for their shows, modest ratings + short seasons = frequent renewals.

How many years has Always Sunny been running? Sometimes I literally feel like I am the only person still watching that show.

Archer has been solid this year, still want to see them ice Cyborg Barry though.

Archer has been killing it this season.  I think this week's was probably my favorite so far but the Burt Reynolds episode was incredible also.

Anyone care to explain "MOAB?!?!

All I get from Google is that it's a city in Utah and a Massive Ordinance Air Blast bomb. I don't think that's what Pam was talking about...


Gonna miss this show after next week, another strong season.

But seriously, you cannot take this off the air until they freaking murder that dbag Barry! Later 'tater.

It's also an acronym for "Mother of all bombs"... in this context I'm thinking maybe "Mother of all BJs".  Not sure what else the B could be.

The finale was brilliant.  So many awesome geek references.  Lana in pasties.  What the hell else could you possibly want?
