Storyline

Archer is tortured by Crenshaw, an ISIS agent who sounds German, Russian and American in rapid succession. Malory, the head of ISIS deems the performance of her agent son "unsatisfactory." In his terraced penthouse, drunken Archer "ping-pongs" a French stewardess, marvels at her dog, Abelard, and harasses his ancient British valet, Woodhouse. At ISIS, Archer is an HR nightmare who does not play well with office staff: Pam Poovey, portly head of HR, who dresses like Malory; Dr. Krieger, the mysterious "food rapist," and probable Nazi scientist; Carol (soon to be Cheryl) "Gimple," doe eyed, attractive, space cadet secretary to Malory; Lana Kane, huge green-eyed field agent (and angry ex-girlfriend of Archer); and Cyril Figgis, meek comptroller and Lana's new f-buddy. Discrepancies arise with Archer's operational account; he is determined to bury the evidence. Sterling Archer may not have the password to the ISIS mainframe, but he does have sturdy rappelling gear, tactalnecks...and a ... Written by LA-Lawyer

Trivia

During the scene where Archer is in the simulator, Malory holds up a picture of her with her dog Duchess. It is a parody of the famous photograph of John Lennon and 'Yoko Ono' taken hours before Lennon was murdered. See more »

Goofs

At approximately the 19:29 run-time into this show, after Archer has grabbed Lana from behind with his arm around her neck while he points his firearm at her head, the scene shifts to a low camera shot of Malory and Kremensky. This is after Archer says, "Looks like we've got a Mexican standoff, Kremensky." The low shot shows from between Archer and Lana both standing side by side in the spots they occupied before Archer put Lana into a hold. Then the scene shifts back to a side view, and Archer is again standing behind Lana. See more »

The ultimate James Bond animated parody for adults
15 April 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Who's sexier, better and stronger than Sean Connery as James Bond ? Jean-Paul Belmondo as Bob Saint-Clar in Le Magnifique ? Too Jackie Chan ! Jean Dujardin as Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath in OSS 117 ? Too frenchie ! Sterling Malory Archer of course ! The spy of spies has it all, from black (or slightly black) suits to gadgets that can even be used as sextoys ! As in the famous spy franchise the episode began with the protagonist in distress. In less than thirty seconds you know that Archer is no Bond ! He looked more like a kid trapped in an adult body with crazy ants commanding his every moves. Then came the inevitable opening credits with the dancing silhouettes and funky colors. Considering it's a cartoon I couldn't help comparing it to Cat's Eyes but James Bond is undoubtedly the reference in the genre. Even if the visuals are minimal the rest was an endless series of irresistible gags, hilarious jokes and cult dialogs. The first viewing should have a delirious impact on your mind but be aware that the second could alter your brainwaves and turn you into an unstoppable laughing barrel of monkeys. A whippong of mass humor ? Even stereotyped characters, from the charismatic mother to the innocent secretary, were turned into funny controversial personas. Archer and his mother ? A job for Sigmund Freud ! Archer and his mistresses ? How not to treat women. Warning : Plush animals were harmed. Dolphin ? Checked. Duck ? Checked. So wrong that it's good, specially because it's only animated. The guilty pleasure you always wished for but was too afraid to ask. Most retorts are comedic homeruns that should send you rolling on the floor. Impossible ? Not for Archer ! He's so mean and the characters revolving around him like bugs so disturbed, kinky and wicked that you should instantly fall in luv with them. Happy Tree Friends + James Bond + Sexymmorality ? I don't know its magick formula but Mole Hunt was animated comedy for adults at its best !
