Dr. Lemuel Kane is a microbiologist who might get the Nobel Prize; Dr. Claudette Kane is a public policy professor with a focus on feminist issues at U.C. Berkeley. They do not know Lana and Archer are spies; they think they still working on their doctoral dissertations. Lana brings Archer and AJ to see her liberal academic parents in Berkeley. When Lemuel's home den is ransacked and his algae samples and bio-fuel research is stolen, Archer, Lana and Lemuel take off after the thieves in Lem's vintage Mustang. Archer goes McQueen in an epic car chase through the streets of San Francisco; Lana pulls out her Tec-9s. Daddy learns the truth about his little girl and the trio learns who stole the research. Meanwhile, back in NYC, Pam personally hauls a loaded Vanisphere (and ISIS crew) when they break down in a bad neighborhood en route to bowling. Written by LA-Lawyer

"Sorry I tried to spit roast your mom."
10 January 2019 | by chrisjmcnultySee all my reviews

This episode had me laughing out loud from start to finish. Like a bolt from the blue we suddenly landed back in classic Archer territory with hilarity in every scene.

Sure the,the episode begins with a steady feel but it really takes off when we get to the 'hot tub' scene. From here on the episode races at full speed and doesn't stop until the credits roll.

What can I say, the best episode of the season so far!
