Suave, skillful prowess in the arts of counter-espionage, Krav Maga and dumb luck form the recipe for Archer's success. At a gala in the British Embassy, a drunken Archer single-handedly thwarts a Sein Finn attack. His manly exploits churn the loins of the female guests... including those of Lana, whose date is Mr. Saran Wrap. Malory would do anything to prevent her son from getting involved with Lana again. She hatches a scheme to turn Cyril into a dashing Jr. James Bond. Unfortunately, Archer is the one who has to train Cyril. Add ice cubes, a hooker in the trunk, and then shake, do not stir.

What's in the Trunk?
16 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In order to keep Archer from re-hooking up with Lana, Mallory decides Cyril needs and upgrade so he could become Archer's peer. Unfortunately, he has none of the qualities necessary. So Archer is ordered to be his mentor. Of course, this leads to insane shootings, poison pens, and the wrath of Lana. Archer knows immediately what is going on. There is the usual sexual tension between he and Lana. Mallory ends up nearly blind because her staff gave zucchinis instead of cucumbers to put over her eyes after a facial. This whole thing is so outrageous that it actually works. The characters are constantly at odds and the trash talking really is funny. There are also references to topical things that are fun to decode.
