After many seasons of Archer talking about his man crush, it was only fitting to bring in Burt Reynolds for the show's real season three premiere, "The Man From Jupiter."

No, I'm not counting the amazing "Heart of Archness" miniseries. As hilarious as Pirate King Archer may have been, this season began tonight.

Here, we meet up with Archer at a bar, hilariously failing to pick up two chicks. Well, only one on camera. The hot one was in the powder room. That's when we met Reynolds, playing himself, and stealing every scene he's in.

Luckily, Archer got all his Reynolds movie references out of the way within the first few seconds of meeting his hero. And for those of us that never took the time to see the first two-thirds of the soon-to-be McClusky trilogy, we were treated the most hilarious self-referential news possible: there never were any airboats in Gator. »
