Thursday, January 27, 2011: Archer

Thursday, January 27, 2011: <i>Archer</i>

I've gushed about Archer before, but it really is the funniest animated show on TV -- possibly the funniest show on TV, period, assuming you like sex, violence, cartoons and dysfunctional relationships. Just imagine if M was James Bond's mother, James Bond was an A-hole, and Miss Moneypenny was a demented pervert, and you've pretty much got this show, which somehow manages to be a workplace comedy, an action movie and a sex farce all in one package. What more could you ask for?

The second season debuts tonight, and the entire cast is back: ISIS agent Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin), his mother Malory (Jessica Walter), his ex and fellow agent Lana (Aisha Tyler), accountant Cyril (Chris Parnell), secretary Cheryl (Judy Greer) and HR rep Pam (Amber Nash). The first episode finds Archer and Lana sent to Switzerland to protect a diplomat's daughter, who keeps throwing herself at Archer despite his attempts to be honorable, but future episodes will feature the return of ODIN head Len Trexler (Jeffrey Tambor) and also show the origin story of Archer's butler Woodhouse. (It's a lot more thrilling than it sounds. Also, much bloodier.)

Archer premieres tonight at 10 on FX, opposite new eps of 30 Rock (ooh, just lost a lot of people), Jersey Shore (ooh, there goes everybody else), Fairly Legal (eh, you're not missing much) and TNA Wrestling. Just... just DVR it.
