Just watched the most recent episode. It was indeed excellent. The one before it was solid, too. Maybe the reboot is finally hitting its stride.
My stupid DVR only recorded the last nine seconds of this episode because my wife had scheduled a bunch of other crap for the same time. Lame.
And, yeah, I like the fact that Archer is back to being a badass. It's one thing to tinker with the characters, but making Archer completely inept was just a terrible idea.
They started this last season, the incompetence to badass ratio had slipped pretty far. The stuff with him fighting to crash planes/space shuttles never really made any sense, just being an inept asshole for the sake of it?

That sucks. You missed a good one.

My DVR did something similar with the first episode of Justified this season. I was pissed.

True. It has been a long decline. I'm glad they're mitigating it now, though. They didn't do anything about it last season, and that one was weak start to finish. This season looks like it's really coming around, which is awesome.

Did you guys notice that Cheryl was strumming on a guitar that looked just like Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar?

Great episode again. Their "editing" was perfect.

Agreed. The whole palace series has been great to watch.

They should just have spent 80% of the season in San Marcos instead of coke-Pam for 80%. Cyril as a dictator and Krieger-clones had so much more potential.

Somebody told me that was the season finale

They're probably going to go back to doing Isis now

Yeah. The Coke-Pam was fun for an episode or so, but they kind of beat it to death. There were three or four totally flat episodes in the mid-season.

They are, Adam Reed said as much in a recent interview.

I didn't know there was an Archer thread. This show is great.

My friends turned me into an Archer character!
Cifonelli bespoke suit, Charvet tie, Hermès pocket square, Corthay shoes. Very on point.

First 2-3 seasons were good, everything after that is forgettable.

They are not as good but not forgettable. They're using the freedom of animation really well to reset the universe

I'm just glad he finally woke up out of his coma.
