Storyline

Krieger suspects there is something wrong with Archer's chemo medicine and Archer learns he and his new friend, Ruth, are not getting real cancer medication. Instead, Ruth and Archer are getting sugar pills and Zima. Archer and Lana go on a rampage where Archer hosts a game of Family Feud between members of the Irish mob and Honduran janitors to learn the name of the man in charge: Franny Delaney. The real cancer medications cause horrible side effects for Archer, as he mourns the death of his pal, Ruth. Cyril goes on his own rampage, tormenting Krieger about being a Boy From Brazil, just because he made Portugeuse flash cards for Archer. It's a dog's life for Krieger...and as Archer loses his hair, toenails and his mind, he gains new respect for the healing medical properties of marijuana. Written by LA-Lawyer

Stupid Bad Guys
16 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Archer has male breast cancer and his prognosis is not good. His doctor is incompetent and is in cahoots with a pharmacist. Apparently, placebos have replaced the real, expensive cancer drugs. An old lady dies and Archer gets emotional. He finds the guys responsible and threatens them. When they won't talk he simply kills them. They had their chance, didn't they. The fact that the title character is dying doesn't seem to phase anyone. They just go about their business. Archer is so arrogant that we could care less about him. Revenge is sought but the whole thing seems unsatisfying. It is good to see the human side of this guy for a change.
