Archer, Season 5: Discussion and spoilers

Archer: 5 Teases from the Season 5 Premiere
  • Archer returns to FX on Monday [January 13], and the show is undergoing a major reboot in its fifth season, which has been dubbed "Archer Vice." The ISIS team members are forced to explore new career options - which eventually lands them on the wrong side of the law.

    "I think [creator] Adam Reed probably got very drunk one night while he was writing on his computer," star H. Jon Benjamin told reporters on a conference call this week of the revamp. "When he told me in detail what was going to happen, I was thrilled. I loved the idea. But in fairness, I couldn't reject it. I couldn't say, 'Don't do that.' I don't have that kind of power."


Some mild spoilers in the full article.

I couldn't find a thread for the new season so here we are.

And I put it in SFF because the show regularly has such SFF tropes as cyborgs, clones, space stations, artificial lifeforms, undersea laboratories, etc.

Re: Archer, Season 5: Discussion and spoilers

I heard about this a while back. Sounds like it should be a pretty crazy season, even by Archer standards. Do we know yet if the big change is going to be permanent?

I was vaguely aware it was coming back but didn't realize they had moved it to Mondays. I only found out because I wanted a pic of Sterling for the "jerks" avatar contest.

Re: Archer, Season 5: Discussion and spoilers

I'm late to the game with Archer. I watched the first three seasons on Netflix and hoped they'd have season four streaming before tomorrow, but it looks like last Tuesday they just got the DVDs.

I've been needing my Archer fix!

Not going to happen. Netflix is like a year behind all the time when it comes to Archer.

I figured, so I have disc one coming tomorrow.

The premiere tonight was great. I loved the "It was figuratively killing me" and the follow-up later on.

Re: Archer, Season 5: Discussion and spoilers

So, was that extended montage at the end of the episode a massive spoiler for the entire coming season???? Because if so, I really wouldn't want to have seen that!

Re: Archer, Season 5: Discussion and spoilers

I'm not sure what that was. Before I read this thread I thought it was just Archer's fantasy and things would be back to normal next episode. But it now appears to be a new direction in the series and they are trying to sell it. Not sure I like it, but will give it a chance.

Re: Archer, Season 5: Discussion and spoilers

The montage was definitely just Archer's imagination and not a straight preview, but it is also a hook for what this season will be about. I don't see them going back to the spy genre any time soon. At least based on the articles I have read; they stressed that it is a workplace comedy with insane people and insane situations and "Archer Vice" certainly qualifies.

Oh, p.s. I loved the montage.

Actually, it's a straight preview, made of clips from seven episodes. From the AV Club's interview with with series' creator:

AVC: The first episode ends with that lengthy montage of things coming up in episodes to be seen. Was that you trying to assure the fans that it’s still going to be basically the same show?

AR: Yes, very much so. When that was written, we wrote this trailer, and then it was all sort of place-holder stuff, and I thought, oh yeah, we’ll get to that and somebody will be kicked out of a helicopter at 3,000 feet. So we said, “We’ll wait and we’ll finish the trailer, because we’re going to need the existing footage and blah blah blah.” Then it turned out that almost none of the things in the original trailer as written wound up in the season. So we went back—and I guess how they make real trailers—watched seven episodes and used footage to put in the trailer.
Very much looking forward to seeing how the hell they work that tiger into things....

Yeah, the trailer was pretty spoilerish, but intriguing at the same time. This season should be fun, but, if anything, they didn't change things enough in the second episode.

Can you really pack cocaine into a body cast like that?
