He is a product of his environment!
What's that? I can't hear you over the sound of Archer's tinnitus. And in case you point out the obvious, that you're communicating via text instead of voice, then I'm sorry but I can't read you over the exploding grenade that Archer mistook for a flash-bang... again.

Totally worth checking out. If you ever got around to trying out Sealab 2021, it's made by some of the same creative team.

I don't know if I know yours SUPER well (I know you like Rick and Morty and Beavis and Butthead), but I think you'd like it.  It is a really strong show with a great cast of characters.  It starts off as relatively standard spy spoof stuff (albeit, still funny) and slowly grows its cast into people you really want to spend time with.  There are detractors who complain it is the "characters always yelling" at each other show.  There is definitely that, but it is also a show with a lot of fast-flying barbs and references and such, but the show is all about a VERY good cast working at the top of their game.  You also learn to genuinely care about the outcomes of certain storylines (so much so that it was a bit of a surprise they intentionally did an entire non-canonical season last time out, though it was mostly pretty damned good) and characters.

It also gets CRAZY bloody at times, but I have a feeling that probably wouldn't bother you.  I'll also say, don't try to cherry pick best episodes and watch from the beginning.  Not only because it is that good, but because over the years it basically develops it's own language based on catchphrases.  Usually, I'm a guy turned off by excess of catchphrases, but it happens so organically over the course of the series that it was basically the logical next step.

Also, despite starting with some relatively limited animation, the show is REALLY good with action.  Like, it often is an action comedy and the action is fast, fierce and visceral.

This. I'd compare the use of catchphrases and running jokes to Arrested Development as far as building them up and using them at perfect times.

I love how it's all been condensed into a shorthand to where they don't even need to complete the catch phrase. They can just vaguely suggest it, or start and not finish it.

So I've started this week on Seasons 1 & 2 already and I find this show funny as hell!!
How anybody gets anything done and not killed as dimwitted as they are is just hilarious!! :D :D

Also Netflix seems to be purposely slowing down my disc shipments since I got back from Mexico when I paused my account as I can usually turn them over same day I get them..
I get 3 dvds at a time but instead of being able to get up to 9 discs per week (no holidays), I'm only able to get 6 per week now! :grr:

I'm not sure I can watch Archer anymore. It's not that I don't like the show anymore or anything, it's just that Anais.Butterfly got me into Archer and I'm not sure I can watch the show anymore without getting all weepy.

Okay so I went ahead and bought the digital version of Archer Season 8 on Amazon so I can watch it anytime I want now... it's just a matter of getting myself braced for the possible downpour of various emotions.

Okay so I just binge-watched Season 8 over the last day and... I thought this season was good. I had one big problem, that is since the events take place while

, nothing that happens this season really matters in the grand scheme of things. However, the jokes, the humor, all kind of make up for that.
