Product Description

He's intrepid. He's absurdly egotistical. He's obsessed with sex (although perhaps not as much as his mother, not to mention several other characters in the show). He is, in fact, described by his own mom as "a vain, selfish, lying, and quite possibly alcoholic man-whore." This is Sterling Archer, self-described world's greatest spy and the hero of these 13 second-season episodes of Archer, the irreverent, often laugh-out-loud funny cartoon series from the FX network. This season's themes are no less adult than the last one's, including the suggestion of sex with a minor, a paternity suit, irresponsible gambling, and breast cancer--make that male breast cancer, specifically Archer's. Sterling (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) and his cohorts at ISIS, the agency run by mother Malory (Jessica Walter), gallivant around the globe, from the bayous of Louisiana (where they try to thwart an eco-terrorist) to the grand hotels of Monaco (where they somehow end up in the middle of the famous Grand Prix auto race) and a dark prison cell in Russia (where Archer has gone in an attempt to locate the man he believes to be his father). The jokes and puns come at us fast and furious. Some are obvious and sophomoric, if still amusing (Archer's supposed father is named Nikolai Jakov); others are cleverer (the topless young Swiss cutie who comes on to our hero claims that "he tried to touch me with his� Wilhelm"), and still others are downright smart and funny (not many TV shows, especially animated ones, touch on the difference between perquisite and prerequisite, or bailiwick and legerdemain). The character animation is limited, to say the least--those who recall the Clutch Cargo series from the late 1950s and early '60s should feel right at home--but the backgrounds are often quite beautiful. And if there's any doubt that Archer is not for kids, the ample profanity (no F-bombs, but pretty much everything else) should convince parents to keep their young ones out of earshot. Meanwhile, those wondering what the folks behind the voices look like will want to check out the bonus feature covering several cast members' appearance at Comic-Con. --Sam Graham

As some of you, know that I am a totaly blind person, so, I am some what not in my comfort zone to review a film, but the reason I am doing it is if in case that other blind persons like me are thinking to get it and are wondering if it is good for me being blind if the person didn't see it alreaday on tv. because of course, when you are totaly blind, the reason for the person to like this or that film will be base on totaly different reason than a sighted person. And of course, one of the biggest reason is, can I follow the story line and actually get enough jokes without seeing it? and without description video? and in this case the answer is a big yes, of course I am aware that I miss a lot and the reason I am sure of it is that my friend is kind enough after the show, we watch it a second time, I mean an episode, and the second time, he tells me , like he will say stop it, and he tells me what is actually happening and to be honest I had no idea at all. but the good news if you are a blind person that live alone and you did ear people talking about Archer but you never had the chance to get it on tv, don't be afraid to get it, you will get enough jokes, even without noone to tell you about it, me, I don't care that someone tell me what I have miss, I am totaly happy just the way I get it. and not to many actually make me laugh! and it get better, every time you will watch an episode for a second time or third, I am always amaze to realise that I had miss this joke or that, but this is also true for everyone I guess blind or not.Read more ›

The creator of this series called it 'Arrested Development meets a spy spoof'. a pretty good sun up. This has some of the absurdist, insane
feel of 'Sealab' or 'Venture Brothers', but also grounds it in richer characters.

By nature this kind of wild, raunchy, ribald, gross, un-PC, very clever joke a second romp is going to be a hit or miss affair, but the batting average in 'Archer' is surprisingly high, and a lot of the wordplay is really sharp.

The show grows each season, getting ever funnier, and having the characters and situations branch out in some great unexpected ways. From what started out in season 1 feeling like it would be a one joke idea that would quickly wear out, this somehow found a way to transcend and use the audience familiarity with the characters not to just repeat the same jokes, but to walk a great tightrope of giving what is expected, but then finding a way to just push it one step further.

Another big plus here is the voice acting. The whole cast is terrific, as are the many guest stars that show up. The fun they all seem to be having doing the show is infectious, and they manage to give their characters a surprising amount of range. Special credit has to be given to H. Jon Benjamin, along with the writers, for making the egotistical idiot of a lead not only very funny, but somehow also likable enough that he never wears out his welcome.

If you like animated insanity, this is very much worth checking out to see if it's for you.

By Theo TOP 500 REVIEWER on April 5 2013

Archer is a wonderfully absurdist frolic for strictly adult audiences. Fundamentally this show is a giant spoof of 1960s spy thrillers; a spoof made for decidedly 21st century sensibilities. It's the show Get Smart would have been had all the characters been perpetually high on crystal meth.

However you felt about season one, you'll probably feel the same way about season two. Personally, I love it! I don't think season two is actually any better than season one, but I don't think the quality has dropped at all either. So long story short, what we get here is more of the same. But without, I should stress, the show becoming merely repetitive.

If you haven't seen season one yet, I would suggest you begin at the beginning rather than just plunging in here. Season two does pick up pretty well exactly where season one left off. It'd be overstating things to say that this show is story-driven; it's more like a comedic improv act than that. But unlike most of Cartoon Network's [adult swim] cartoons, Archer does have a definite continuity. It's not like Aqua Teen Hunger Force where characters regularly die or get horribly mutilated only to be back again as normal the very next episode. In this universe when things happen, they've happened, and subsequent episodes do build on what's gone before.

In fact, in many ways this show is a whole lot like a more grown-up version of the original [adult swim] lineup. The sense of humor is certainly no less deranged. Things are as amoral and as brutal as ever. The difference is that the descent into anarchy is now played out on a much larger, more elaborate stage. What's more, given the success of the [adult swim] franchise, we're now watching shows with real budgets.
