With a wide choice of “adult” cartoons about you are bound to of came across Archer -the misogynist spy show filled with booze, blood and derogatory quips. If you haven’t seen it, (where have you been hiding?) here are 10 reasons we love this highly addictive unconventional spy show.
1. Malorie’s Unmotherly Love
Archer’s mammy is one bitch. Yes, she sometimes shows her 1% loving side, but its her utter 2 fingers she throws up to her son we love. Let’s be honest, if she was loving, Archer wouldn’t be the cool spy he is. Or should we say he wouldn’t be the asshole he is today.
2. Ongoing Jokes
2 words – DAAAANNGEERRR ZOOONNNEEE. The shown has many ongoing1 jokes, however our favourite is when Archer cracks out the Kenny Loggins classic, and most famous song, Danger Zone. Priceless.
3. The Strange Attraction to Pam
So yes we have conventionally beautiful Lana, but Pam is where our heart lies. She can drink you under the table, eat into oblivion and is apparently mint in bed (according to Archer). She can also drive like a pro, wrestle for days on end and isn’t afraid to take a punch or 20. What’s not to love?
4. We All Know Someone Like Krieger
The crazed “doctor/scientist” is bat shit crazy, yet does break out some ingenious ideas. We all have that friend who is off their rocker but does speak a rare golden opportunity of sense now and again. Jazz hands.
5. Six Seasons in and We Are Still Hooked
Even when the did Archer Vice we were still hooked. The continous laughs we have even repeating and rewatching episodes, it’s a show that will never get old.
6. Brett Taking The Bullet – Constantly
This poor guy takes a beating, well, a bullet or 10 but for some reason we find ourselves shouting at the tv “God dammit Brett!”. He’s the annoying character that literally does nothing – we just shout at hm.
Aah Cheryl. Or Charlene. Or whatever she likes to be called, is bat shit crazy. However she does come out with some cracking one liners. I mean, just like the gypsy woman said.
8. Continuity Nailed!
With the running quips, jokes, and even referring back to previous episodes, Archer has one of the things adult cartoons have – continuity. Long may it continue.
9. The Powerhouse that is Lana Kane
She’s fierce. She’s hot. She’s a force to be messed with. She is, Lana Kane. Having relations with both Archer and Cyril, she has them at her beck and call. The other girls in the office also try to stay on her good side. Unless your Cheryl and enjoy being choked, then Lana’s man hands are perfect.
10. What’s Not to Love?
Booze. Sex. Fighting. Sarcasm. Need we say more really?
