Pam and Cheryl are gabbing on their way to ISIS and they are, once again, late for work. A van approaches the pair and men proceed to kidnap one of them. Life is so damned unfair: Cheryl did not even take time off last week when her parents were killed in a car accident... this could make her really late! When the non-kidnapped drone reaches ISIS, she receives a very lukewarm welcome until railroads and Tunts arise. Then, it becomes all about kidnappers, voice modulation software ...and how much one's colleagues value a co-worker. Perhaps perennial cheapskate, Malory, is not the best person to ask. Lana is horrified; later, she is literally wet with jealousy and the fearless ISIS crew operates with its usual efficiency to save its team member. How much of a "piece" of Malory will an angry ex-kidnap victim demand? Can Malory afford to lose it? How many times will Brett get shot before the ISIS liability insurer cancels them for good?

Good Old Cheryl/Carol
16 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The episode aside, why do these people continue to associate with each other. First of all, Archer and his mother are despicable. The women are either crazy or totally self-serving. They have no loyalty, no friendship, no morals. Yes, that's what the show is about. Yes, that's why it's different from any animation on the planet. I guess we watch it because of its irreverence and profanity. There is partial nudity and other issues. In this one, Pam is mistaken for her cohort and becomes the victim of a kidnapping. When no one lifts a hand, she must resort to her own devices. There is an insane gunfight where bullets riddle the place but after about a thousand shots, almost no one gets hit. This is an outrageous parody of every shoot-em-up we've ever seen, where the good guys never get hit.
