A new series on FX starting next year...

Plot: At ISIS, an international spy agency, global crises are merely opportunities for its highly trained employees to confuse, undermine, betray and royally screw each other. At the center of it all is suave master spy Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin), whose less-than-masculine code name is "Duchess." Archer works with his domineering mother Malory (Jessica Waler), who also is his boss. He also has to deal with his ex-girlfriend, Agent Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler) and her new boyfriend, ISIS comptroller Cyril Figgis (Chris Parnell), as well as Malory's lovesick secretary, Cheryl (Judy Greer).

Written by: Adam Reed (Frisky Dingo, Sealab: 2021, Space Ghost)

H. Jon Benjamin (lots of voice work including Home Movies, Family Guy, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force)
Jessica Walter (Lucille Bluth from Arrested Development)
Chris Parnell (SNL, 30 Rock)
Aisha Tyler (Google her. I'm sure you'll recognize her gorgeousness)
Judy Greer (Kitty Sanchez from Arrested Development)

Begins: Jan. 14th

TV Spot:

The promos for this have been hilarious. I always chuckle to myself, no matter how many times I may have seen them.

Anyone else interested?

Cronos 12-05-2009 07:07 PM

I've seen the pilot episode and couldn't stop laughing, hopefully the series will be as hilarious as Frisky Dingo.

Mr.HyDe807 12-05-2009 08:51 PM

How do you catch the pilot Cronos?

I'm with Smiert, the tv spots are hilarious. I can't wait!

Cronos 12-06-2009 06:12 AM

Appeared on the internet a few months back, probably from a screener or something.

Smiert Spionam 12-06-2009 08:28 AM

Yeah, I just downloaded it after Cronos mentioned it was out. You can find it via torrent pretty easily, just search: "Archer S01E01" (The actual title of the episode is "Mole Hunt").

I must say: this shit was absolutely hi-larious. The pace is so rapid fire, a second viewing does it even more justice. The cast is great (though H. John Benjamin really shines) and I also love the visual style, which is very early Bond/Get Smart-esque. Can't wait for the series to start. I'll need somethin' to replace the void left by It's Always Sunny, as well as somethin' to tithe me over until LOST begins in Feb...

"Just the tip!" :cool:

Smiert Spionam 01-13-2010 04:44 PM

Starts tomorrow night. Hope I can smoke a J in time for it...

jolanar 02-01-2010 07:17 PM

This show is hilarious. Funniest new show on television for sure.

Smiert Spionam 02-27-2010 07:50 AM

Are Cronos, jolanar, and I foreal the only ones watching this hilarious show?

I'm watching it as well. Every episode has cracked me up!

FireCaptain4 02-28-2010 06:11 PM

I want to watch this, but I'm not receiving FX now (which sucks because It's Always Sunny is my favorite comedy series) and I rarely visit Hulu (mostly only to watch It's Always Sunny...). So, I'll probably wait to shimmy onboard once this hits DVD.

This looks great though. I've never watched Sealab, but the bits I've seen of Archer online and on TV spots look hysterical. The positive attitude here makes me joyous as well. Hopefully it'll be a great regular animated series I can tag along and stay loyal to like The Venture Bros. and South Park--been needing another one of those for awhile.

Smiert Spionam 03-20-2010 08:05 AM

Good news: Archer has been picked up for a 13-episode second season due to premiere next year. :cool:

Buck Turgidson 03-20-2010 10:09 PM

I was a little late to the party here but I'm glad it's coming back for more.

I love that Aisha's character, like that hilarious whackjob she played on The Boondocks, is basically an animated version of herself.

I'm still coping with hearing her say "My vulva is as smooth as a veal cutlet" a week or two ago.

Mr.HyDe807 03-21-2010 07:45 PM

I've been catching up with each episode this past week, and I'm glad I did. This show is just consistently hilarious!

DaMovieMan 03-21-2010 08:31 PM

Fantastic show, saw only the first two episodes but both cracked me up like crazy. Can't wait to see more...a friend of mine is burning the whole season on disc for me :D

redfiretruck 04-01-2010 04:44 PM

This is seriously one of the funniest shows on air right now. Amazing quality, cast everything!

Smiert Spionam 12-22-2010 07:50 AM

Archer returns January 27.

Grrrr.....needs to start sooner. I've got, literally, no new shows to watch until then :(

outsyder 12-22-2010 10:43 AM

Sustain yourself on these Season 2 promos for now.

Smiert Spionam 12-22-2010 11:00 AM

Done and done :cool:

echo_bravo 12-22-2010 01:17 PM

Hilarious show. Cant wait for Season 2

outsyder 01-26-2011 10:11 PM

Mr.HyDe807 01-26-2011 11:29 PM

Well, this came out of the blue for me! This makes my Thursday night TV even more hilarious!

echo_bravo 01-27-2011 10:55 PM

Should be coming on here in about an hour. Gonna smoke some green before hand...and probably during.:cool::D

Uggghhhh so jealous :(

Hilarious ep, as per expected. Gonna have to watch it again to catch all the jokes I might've missed, as per expected :D

Buck Turgidson 01-28-2011 02:49 AM

The Johnny Storm reference really took the cake.

Smiert Spionam 02-09-2011 07:47 AM

Where's Woodhouse? :(

Mr.HyDe807 02-18-2011 01:22 PM

"You ruined it." :p

This show never fails to get a least one laugh out loud moment, I swear. The part with the dry ice killed me.

Buck Turgidson 02-18-2011 05:59 PM

Archer's hilariously cracked version of who was in The African Queen, Lana's reaction to it and his obsession with Gator and White Lightning were major highlights.

So was the outfit of the guy who they commandeered the boat from.

The Pin 03-02-2011 04:33 PM

Woodhouse is a god!


I loved the Legends of the Fall references. Archer is one of the greatest animated shows on television. Reminds me a little of the Venture Brothers.

outsyder 03-30-2011 11:06 AM

Archer renewed. Totally ninja.

electriclite 03-30-2011 02:59 PM

Term of Enrampagement another classic. I particularly loved the Family Feud inspired knee-cappings.

And after Movie Star, I now respond to anyone's criticisms with a defiant "You're not my supervisor!"

Smiert Spionam 04-04-2011 06:06 PM


So the super secret unaired pilot that's on the season 1 DVD is...
...the exact same episode as "Mole Hunt", except Archer has been replaced with a velociraptor :D

Smiert Spionam 04-23-2011 04:51 PM

So, for those that don't know, Archer was picked up for a 3rd season. There will be three new episodes airing in September with It's Always Sunny, and the rest of the season airing early next year, as usual.

zombievictim 04-23-2011 05:10 PM

Three new ones with Sunny? That pretty much made my day. I knew about the pickup but I had no idea about the September plan. That's awesome.

Anyone else watch the finale on Thursday? It was golden. After a slow start, the last half of this season has been absolutely amazing.

Smiert Spionam 05-03-2011 08:29 AM

So next season, I really hope they do more with Popeye, the former loan shark/pimp turned dry cleaner, who (if I haven't mentioned before) is voiced by Clarke Peter (Lestor Freamon from The Wire).

Buck Turgidson 05-04-2011 12:59 AM

Didn't know CP did his voice.

The_Soloist 05-04-2011 11:04 AM

^^^^ Great avatar.

Buck Turgidson 05-05-2011 01:56 AM

Blondes don't normally do much for me but she's a major exception.
