Archer is a glorious politically incorrect animated series on the FX network. If you knew that already, then you probably watch and love the show. Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) is a spy who works for his overbearing mother Mallory (Jessica Walter) and is joined by a cast a zany characters, most of which he is trying to sleep with. The show completed its 7th season this year, and hit San Diego Comic Con last weekend. Creator Adam Reed was there along with the entire cast was on hand including Benjamin, Walters, and Aisha Tyler (Lana), Judy Greer (Cheryl), Amber Nash (Pam), Chris Parnell (Cyril), Lucky Yates (Dr. Krieger), and more.
Here are some highlights from SDCC.
In the first video, there’s a short clip from a live show script read. Best line goes to, who else, Archer himself who when asked why there were two flasks of bourbon, he responds “I didn’t know if I’d have time for lunch.”
Next up, a disagreement over the band Rush causes Aisha Tyler and Lucky Yates to get into a wrestling match on stage complete with Yates slamming her and dropping an elbow before being kicked off Shatner style. The highlight is H. Jon Benjamin pouring water into her bright red high heel on the panel desk after the brawl.
The final video asks about the conflicts the executives get into with Standards & Practices. If you’re familiar with the show, you know they cross the line a lot in regards to sex, violence, inappropriate humor, racially charged material, drug use, alcohol abuse… god I love this show! Adam Reed said the only time they were told to change something was in season 1 or 2 when Archer was going to throw a baby, and FX is a NO baby-throwin’ network!
Archer seasons 1-6 are currently streaming on Netflix. Season 7 is available on Amazon Prime for $22.99 or pay-per episode.
