After being teased with an amazing three-part mini-series back in September, Archer is finally coming back to FX to start it’s 3rd season. If you have yet to watch it you should probably yell at a friend who has watched it and has not forced you to do so.
ArcherÂ is an animated,Â half-hour comedy that revolves around the International Secret Intelligence ServiceÂ (ISIS)Â and the lives of its employees. Although their work of espionage,Â reconnaissance missions,Â wiretapping and undercover surveillance is daunting and dangerous,every covert operation and global crisis is actually just another excuse for the ISIS staff to undermine,Â sabotage and betray each other for personal gain.
Archer has become one of my favorite shows on television and there is no other network I would rather the show be on. FX seems to be a youth-minded network that takes chances on risky shows like such. Archer itself is in my opinion pretty ahead of it’s time much like Family Guy was when it first aired before it got cancelled. When FX picked up It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, all FX had was a short skit that cost the gang only about $85 to create on a home video camera. Why it is important to have a solid network behind a show is so we don’t have good shows cancelled like How To Make It In America and Party Down.
Along with the return of Archer is a new animated series airing after Archer. Unsupervised is a new animated series that also comes from the producers of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Needless to say, I am looking forward to the premieres this Thursday night!
