In case you did not know, Archer is an American adult animated television series created by Adam Reed for the FX network. He was also a voice actor, writer, director and producer for the cartoons Sealab 2021 and Frisky Dingo, which he co-created with Matt Thompson.
The show features the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin (who has also lent his voice talents to various other TV shows and has appeared in various films), Judy Greer (who has appeared in TV shows like House M.D., Arrested Development, Californication and films like Jurassic World, Ant-Man and The Descendants), Amber Nash, Chris Parnell (who has appeared in both Anchorman movies and various other films), Aisha Tyler, Lucky Yates and Jessica Walter. It’s definitely one of the funniest shows that I’ve watched.
Stirling Mallory Archer is a secret agent who works for ISIS (A fictional spy agency) which is run by his mother. He’s good at what he does, but he tends to tell everyone that he’s a secret agent and he drinks (a lot).
In this clip from Entertainment Weekly, he reviews all the James Bond films and it’s hilarious.
Archer has already been renewed for a 7th season in the USA. Some of the seasons are available to stream on Netflix in South Africa.
Just a warning: It’s an animated show, but it’s definitely NOT for children and you should probably NOT watch it if you’re easily offended. Anything goes, and I mean anything.
