This Archer show is pretty damn good.

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

That was fucking great. I was wondering if someone had watched that having not seen the show before, there's no way they would have liked it, right?
Probably not. It was fundamentally one big in-joke that depends on knowing the idiosyncrasies of all the characters.

Finlly watched this last night. If I stumbled across that (elevator episode) I would have been scouring the internet for more that was fucking great.

I love it when dumb characters do something smart, like when Cheryl correctly guessed what every person was thinking or when Charlie figured out the Airline Miles scam.

Jesus Christ, it's impossible not to be in complete awe at how good this show is at rapid banter. Also: Rumplestumpskin.

I think I agree, tho Sunny is firing on all cylinders this season and, full credit to tep, Broad City has won over me and the missuz. One area of improvement for Archer this season is that Ray has become just as reliable a character for banter as the others.

Sunny and Broad City are runners up for sure. I'm drawing a blank on anything else right now. Portlandia as well I think but for me none of them tops Archer. And yeah I know what you mean about Ray's character. There were some past episodes where he was more prominent and those were good and I t doesn't take anything away from the other characters either. I had someone try to sell me on big bang theory again yesterday. The new me politely declines. The old me would have blurted out that show sucks. I like how my daughter came to the conclusion that it is horrible too without any bias from me.

With Sunny, Broad City and Archer, I am declaring this the golden age of TV comedy.

If that promo does not make you howl or at least guffaw, you're a lousy human being.
