    Hey guys. I was wondering if anyone else watches the absolutely HILARIOUS show on FX called Archer. They're on the third episode of the second season now, and I'm loving the new episodes.

    I do. Funniest show on TV. Very sharply drawn characters, which is why the humor works.

    As for the videos, I think there's a {yt} {/yt} tag, but use the ['s not the {'s.

    Fantastic show. I watched the first season on Netflix, but unfortunately I haven't caught the new ones yet.

    Love this show. The first two episodes of this season I found a bit disappointing (not bad, just not as funny as they should have been), but this week's episode was back in top form and amazing. I wish the seasons were longer.

    I saw the first season, haven't seen any new ones yet, but I loved it.

    This week's episode wasn't even about the spy biz, which shows how strong the comedy is. They can ditch their premise entirely and just have a character-centric story.

    This is great news! Not the Bob's Burgers part. That just drags me way down. But I'm glad Archer is renewed. Season 2 has been even better than season 1, especially thanks to more of the supporting characters (Dr Krieger!!!).

    Yeah, I think they're expanding the cast's role quite well.

    Ray is rapidly becoming my favorite character, although I'm also very curious to learn why Dr. Krieger doesn't look much like Adolph Hitler.

    I especially loved when the "Placebo Effect" episode a couple weeks ago parodied my favorite scene from Magnum, P.I. ...

    Sweet! Archer is one of my favorite shows, so this makes me really happy. I agree about the bigger roles for the other characters, especially Krieger, Pam, and Carol.

    I just watched the episode where Archer has to babysit the hooker's son and Woodhouse thinks he's going to get murdered. Whole thing had me in stitches.

    "You want me to take a baby to a murder?" "Wherever, just not here!"

    "I'm all out of love today." "What, is it 2:30 already?"

    Yeah, I just watched that one a couple weeks ago. I loved how every time someone saw Mallory do something with the baby, it ended up "explaining alot" for them.

    I loved that Benoit(Balls!) joke. Archer managed to fit it in during the whole chase.

    I love shows that are a bit off center. Archer is getting better as this season is going on. Started slow but the last 3 or 4 episodes have been truly classic Archer. Needs more Kreiger, though.
