Storyline

At an international spy agency, global crises are merely opportunities for its highly trained employees to confuse, undermine, betray and royally screw each other. At the center of it all is suave master spy Sterling Archer, whose less-than-masculine code name is "Duchess." Archer works with his domineering mother Malory, who also is his boss. He also has to deal with his ex-girlfriend, Agent Lana Kane and her new boyfriend, comptroller Cyril Figgis, as well as Malory's lovesick secretary, Cheryl. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Creator Adam Reed has admitted in interviews that the show isn't set in a realistic time period. The geopolitical Cold War situation doesn't align with the technology being used, or Woodhouse's (George Coe's) age. See more »

Goofs

In "El Secuestro" (Season 2), Brett's voice match on the call with the kidnappers shows his full name as "Brett Buckley." In "White Elephant"(Season 5), Brett's last name is stated by the FBI as "Bunson," causing Archer to remember the Muppet character Bunsen Honeydew. See more »

Archer is magically raunchy
15 January 2010 | by athomedSee all my reviews

In only 22 minutes, Archer gets away with referencing dirty sex every scene, showing off the backside of a woman with the sting of a ping pong paddle still red, and being a very funny, witty new show! It gets away with them because it is funny and also happens to be animated. The animation really works with the style of the show.

Who said comedy is best when it's offending at least one body of people? There's something for everyone to love in this show and probably something for everyone to hate in this show. The first episode I saw last night was very promising. I haven't seen a quirkier show in a long time. It really moves to the beat of its own drum. The pace is very fast and what struck me was, besides the absurd situations and hilarious dialog, the basic plot line has actually been very coherent and interesting.

Don't miss this show. It's got a lot going for it.
