Archer: Season 2

Archer: Season 2:at our store, we stock over 2000 models, so if you see the manufacturer, but not the model, don't be shy - give us a call and we will be happy to check! I'm not a mean person. In my daily life I am kind, sensitive, resolutely politically correct and inoffensive, no matter how much vitriol and meanness patients hurl at me.All of that being said, I'm not a women's studies major by any means; I was always a tomboy as a kid; most of my friends were (and are) guys; and I grew up watching comedy from low-brow (Three Stooges, Benny Hill) to high brow (Monty Python; the 70s original Saturday Night Live cast), slapstick to cutting satire.I don't find formulaic sitcoms to be funny most of the time, probably because the quality of network TV shows and their writing has dropped so egregiously in the last 30 years. Given the choice, I'd rather watch Family Guy over Three And A Half Men, because Family Guy is flat-out funnier. (But, given the choice, I'd rather watch Futurama over Family Guy, because Futurama is wittier, not mean-spirited or reliant on gross-out comedy).All of that being said -- maybe because of how I grew up, maybe because Archer has some major throwback tendencies, and it is totally irreverent and politically incorrect in almost every possible way (gender, race, religion, size-ism, sexual preference) -- I LOVE Archer.I think it is hands-down the funniest, best-written animated show on TV right now, network or cable/satellite. I am SO glad I found it. (I skipped past it many times because the stupid satellite receiver guide descriptions of the show and episodes were so understated.) It wasn't until one day when I actually flipped past it and SAW it, that I was hooked.And while it manages to be totally politically incorrect, it's not completely insensitive. Underneath it all, Archer ("The spy who loved himself") has his own neuroses, the reasons for which are explored in both sensitive and insensitive ways. The fact that Lana (his ex, his near-nemesis, and his frequent temptation) is often the better spy, objectively, is not skipped past. She's more tactical, less egotistical, and generally very competent (though the ongoing jokes about her "man hands" are hilarious). The fact that Archer could not do (or get away with) all that he does without the support staff behind him, however severely twisted they may be (Cheryl, Krieger), is also not skipped past. And above it all is haughty, hilarious Mallory, who actually means the insensitive and politically incorrect things she says. Her son, Archer, master spy, is well aware of his mother's failings, and this makes him a more sympathetic character, despite being so full of himself. The times he is humbled feel deserved, but most of it is humorous without being mean spirited.The animation is better quality in season 2. I suspect the producers got higher budgets for the second season, so that's a plus that is missing from season 1. There are longer story arcs (who is Archer's real father) for the major characters and also some backstory about characters more in the background. And, despite the ongoing and cherished political incorrectness, there is more open homosexuality in guest characters and puncturing of stereotypes.That may be the best thing about Archer, the show and the character: the frequent puncturing of stereotypes in the midst of the irreverence and political incorrectness.If you want to laugh your butt off at a loving homage to old spy and scifi (and cult or B) shows and movies, set in a vague future-present-past with all kinds of old and new technology, that is very wittily written, laugh-out-loud funny, but also subtly amusing, this is a show you just can't miss.I'm reminded of a joke someone told me once long, long ago:"How many feminists does it take to screw in a light bulb?""That's not funny!"If you can't help laughing at the above joke -- male or female -- you'll probably enjoy Archer.If the above joke pisses you off, you better pass on Archer, because Archer, ISIS and crew will probably piss you off too.new york mall,choice,long beach mallArcher: Season 2

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Sterling Archer, the world’s most dangerous spy, and his snarky ISIS cohorts are back for another outrageously raunchy season of international espionage and hilarious inter-office intrigue! When he’s not busy foiling eco-terrorist threats, tracking down mysterious killers, or having sex in x-ray machines, the suave master-spy has his hands full with bikini-clad ninjas, Swiss nymphomaniacs, and paternity suits. Archer searches for the true identity of his father, battles breast cancer, and brings a sexy, ex-KGB agent home to meet his domineering mother. It’s all in a day’s work for the international man of mystery in this uproariously edgy animated farce.

He's intrepid. He's absurdly egotistical. He's obsessed with sex (although perhaps not as much as his mother, not to mention several other characters in the show). He is, in fact, described by his own mom as "a vain, selfish, lying, and quite possibly alcoholic man-whore." This is Sterling Archer, self-described world's greatest spy and the hero of these 13 second-season episodes of Archer, the irreverent, often laugh-out-loud funny cartoon series from the FX network. This season's themes are no less adult than the last one's, including the suggestion of sex with a minor, a paternity suit, irresponsible gambling, and breast cancer--make that male breast cancer, specifically Archer's. Sterling (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) and his cohorts at ISIS, the agency run by mother Malory (Jessica Walter), gallivant around the globe, from the bayous of Louisiana (where they try to thwart an eco-terrorist) to the grand hotels of Monaco (where they somehow end up in the middle of the famous Grand Prix auto race) and a dark prison cell in Russia (where Archer has gone in an attempt to locate the man he believes to be his father). The jokes and puns come at us fast and furious. Some are obvious and sophomoric, if still amusing (Archer's supposed father is named Nikolai Jakov); others are cleverer (the topless young Swiss cutie who comes on to our hero claims that "he tried to touch me with his… Wilhelm"), and still others are downright smart and funny (not many TV shows, especially animated ones, touch on the difference between perquisite and prerequisite, or bailiwick and legerdemain). The character animation is limited, to say the least--those who recall the Clutch Cargo series from the late 1950s and early '60s should feel right at home--but the backgrounds are often quite beautiful. And if there's any doubt that Archer is not for kids, the ample profanity (no F-bombs, but pretty much everything else) should convince parents to keep their young ones out of earshot. Meanwhile, those wondering what the folks behind the voices look like will want to check out the bonus feature covering several cast members' appearance at Comic-Con. "i"--Sam Graham

All Abuzz About Bugs!

We are an online community of naturalists who enjoy learning about and sharing our observations of insects, spiders, and other related creatures.

We enjoy the opportunity to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that we share for the intricate lives of these oft-maligned creatures.

Our Mission

Using the best resources we have access to, we are creating a knowledgebase to help each other and the online community.

Our Method

We collect photographs of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research.

We summarize our findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species.

Making New Discoveries

More than just a clearinghouse for information, this site helps expand on the natural histories of our subjects. By capturing the place and time that submitted images were taken, we are creating a virtual collection that helps define where and when things might be found.

We capture never-before-seen behaviors and we have photos of species that you won't find anywhere else on the web.
