TV First Impressions: Archer

Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size Text Size Print This Page

I missed the whole first season of this show, here are the reasons, it’s on FX, I didn’t know it was animated, and well, I ignored it when someone was gushing about the show. How stupid I was for doing those things.

I’m going to keep this short, because I’m still getting used to the show and don’t have a whole lot of knowledge about everything or even everyone’s names. I do know Archer though, who apparently is an assassin of sorts. This show is just wickedly funny and over the top. The animation is great and the voice acting is well done. How can you not like a James Bond type who has no remorse about taking contracts to kill people, try and sleep with hot chicks all while delivering some extremely witty lines? The office staff that supports him are hilarious in their own right, and the bombshell co-worker/rival is deadly sexy.

Then you top it all off that his mom is the boss of the company and has extremely extravagant tastes.

I can’t really put into words how funny and well done this animated show is on FX. All I can say is that if you’re not watching it already; don’t be like me, start watching it now. Its spies, bad guys getting slaughtered, sex, guns, and comedy, what is there not to like?
