Archer's says his big mouth gets him into trouble 1/3 of the time, but it is the kiss of death for non-Anglo agents of ISIS. Malory needs to replace them and gets a double whammy with Conway Stern, black Jew. His stuff gets way too close for Archer's comfort. Lana mistrusts Conway as much as Archer dislikes him. When Archer and Conway go on a secret mission involving Wilhelm Schmeck, Lana is determined to follow them. Why is Lana afraid... does she think Conway is a perfidious mole who will figuratively stab Archer in the back? Truckasaurus hands are finally in season. Lana gets a big hand for quick thinking and saving the mission...figuratively and literally. Written by LA-Lawyer

Searching for Diversity
16 October 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Mallory realizes that there is a lack of diversity in ISIS. So who should appear but a gigantic black man with a Star of David around his neck. He is too good to be true. An incredible agent and a killer good-looking guy. There are some really embarrassing moments between he and Archer involving male equipment. Ultimately, people come to realize that no-one hired this guy. The funniest stuff, however, comes in the conversation among the women in the office. We are set up for future episodes although something happens at the end to make it hard to imaging. We also find out that Archer throws up at the thought of anything involving Mallory, his mother.
