Archer


FX is such a great network - they play movies that you have seen about a billion times (yet you continue to watch them every time they air, ahem, X-Men) and other weirdo/bizzaro shows like Nip/Tuck, Sunny, and Rescue Me.  You know you watch these shows.  Nip/Tuck is so much uncomfortable drama that you have to watch it just to see how weird it can get.  And then it gets weirder and Christian gets hotter.

Have you been watching Archer?  If yes keep reading, if NO, skip ahead to NO.  How entertaining is this show?  It is so great to me that when set as a cartoon, they can say insanely politically incorrect statements and it becomes outrageously funny a la South Park.  The characters are so wacko and well voiced, it's hard to pick a favorite.  Everyone loves Sterling Archer, but his MOTHER, geez!  She's one hard core dictator.  I love their relationship.  Lana and the ISIS team crack me up too - all the gossip of the hitman world. 

If NO - Watch it.  It's quirky, fast and funny, gross, pervy, and irreverent.  It makes me laugh out loud.

I loooooove this show. My husband DVRed it, watched it, loved it, saved it and badgered me for weeks to watch it. I grumbled about not having enough time and finally gave in. Now we're both obsessed. HiLARious. It's so, so good. It's the first show in a looong time to make me laugh out loud. And we had the exact same conversation about how cartoons somehow magically diffuse the very un-PC dialogue. SO great. :)

On your suggestion I DVRed it and just watched it last evening. Thank you. I loved it! It was cracking me up left and right. I love the very un-PC stuff, and this sure has it.

Billy really liked this show! His explanation of it this morning didn't make much sense to me (lots of cartoon s*x?), but it sounds like I should check it out.
