Archer The Complete Season Two


Archer The Complete Season Two

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 1/5/12

I wasn't sure at first if I liked this show. I thought it would be funnier. However, I think every season it gets a little funnier. Another thing I like about Archer is how it combines lots of fun action along with the humor and word play. It not only satirizes spy and action programs; it really is a good one.

The season starts out fun as usual and then takes a bit of a dark turn when first Archer's mother, and then Archer himself, finds out that he has breast cancer.  They manage to keep things funnier despite such horrible subject matter. At the end, it leads nicely into the next season as Archer meets his future wife Katya, a Russian double agent.

There are some great extras as well on the disk. "Archersaurus-Self Extinction" is a kind of satire of E! Hollywood True Story and shows like that - about Archer if he were a dinosaur. "Ask Archer" has Archer answering questions from fans (the last one and how he reacts to it is very interesting!).  "Semper Fi" has Archer reading a special greeting for a soldier.  "L'Espion Mal Fait" is a dream Archer has about having an accident, then getting plastic surgery, where he ends up short, ugly, and with a beard (and suspiciously like the actor who voices him). They saved the best for last.  "ISIS Infiltrates Comic-Con" shows the creator and actors chatting and answering questions about the show. It is very fun.

Check out my Archer review for the 3rd season episodes!

FX’s ARCHER Season 2 with Never-Before-Seen Footage
on Blu-ray and DVD December 27

Sterling Archer, the world’s most dangerous spy, and his snarky ISIS cohorts are back for another outrageously raunchy season when ARCHER The Complete Second Season comes to Blu-ray and DVD on December 27th from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

Loaded with three exclusive top-secret animated shorts, ARCHER The Complete Second Season features all 13 episodes plus hilarious never-before-seen extras!

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.

ARCHER features the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin (“Bob’s Burgers,” “Family Guy”), Jessica Walter (“Arrested Development”), Aisha Tyler (“24,” “Friends”), George Coe, Chris Parnell (“30 Rock,” “Suburgatory”), Judy Greer (27 Dresses, Marmaduke), and Amber Nash.

Blu-ray and DVD Special Features:

·         Ask Archer

·         Archersaurus - Self Extinction

·         Semper Fi

·         L'espoin Mal Fait
