"Nobody wants your your mustache rides around here, buster!"
12 January 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Man from Jupiter" is probably one of my very favorite pieces of television ever, not just as an episode of "Archer". It's got the show's signature snarky sense of humor, speedy dialogue Cuban hit squads and even Sterling's sweet Challenger in a climactic car chase. Strong episode is an understatement, this is bloody hilarious.

And that doesn't even cover the pièce de résistance: it's a guest star episode, and it's as good as they come. Archer finally meets his childhood hero/man crush Burt Reynolds (cue the references to all of his movies), and I love that Burt was good-natured enough to be here. It works best as a one-off, but the stars aligned on this one.

10/10
