Primetime Show Reviews

Rip Riley and a vacationing Archer

"Archer" review by Suzanne
Airs Thursdays, 10:30pm on FX

This show is pretty's not the funniest show in the world, but it seems to get a little better every time I see it. This three-episode arc they're doing is really good. Last time we saw "Archer", he was upset because his fiancee was killed, and he left ISIS. This arc is all about how ISIS - specifically, his mom -- tracks him down and tries to bring him back. Of course, there are many adventures along the way!

Patrick Warburton, who's does a lot of animation and has a fantastic voice, does an excellent job in his guest-starring role as Rip Reilly. Check it out, you won't be sorry you did!

"Heart of Archness: Part I" (Airs September 15, 10:30PM e/p) Archer, in hiding since the murder of his fiance, is finally tracked down in the South Pacific by handsome adventurer Rip Riley. To get Archer safely back to ISIS, Riley will have to survive the elements, a plan crash, a shark attack, starvation, drowning, exposure, and possibly pirates. Oh, and Archer. Guest voices include Patrick Warburton and David Cross. Archer will officially launch its third season in early 2012 with a 10-episode run.

"Heart of Archness: Part II" (Airs September 22, 10:30 pm e/p) Archer deals with the trials and tribulations of being Pirate King while ISIS remains semi-committed to his rescue.

"Heart of Archness: Part III" (Airs September 29, 10:30 pm e/p) Archer and his fellow prisoners attempt to escape the Pirate Fortress, as Malory hardballs the negotiation for their ransom.

UPDATE: The show returns January 19. It's really good. the first one has Burt Reynolds as a guest star. They're all good, though. I love this show. I wasn't sure at first if I did, but it has really grown on me. Cyril gets more to do now in the show. I think the third one is my favorite, though. The show is great because it combines humor with a lot of high-octane action like you might find in any action movie.

Read my review for The Archer Season 2 DVD. Also, there is a new book coming out "How to Archer" January 17th! We hope to review that, too.

Update: FX sent me two more episodes, and they are very good.  The first one "Drift Problem" is pretty standard for the show. Archer gets a cool spy car for a birthday present from his mom.  Of course, it gets stolen.  The second episode is even funnier. In "Bloody Ferlin", Archer goes with Ray to visit his hick home town, to help his drug dealer brother. I enjoyed both, and it left me wanting more! "Drift Problem" airs this week, 2/9, and "Bloody Ferlin" airs 2/14. A perfect Valentine's Day gift.
