I know you need to be watching Archer

It’s created by the one of the guys who created Sealab 2021, Adam Reed. It’s similar in tone to that show, but apparently on the FX channel you can curse. Judy Greer and Jessica Walter from Arrested Development (Kitty and Lucille Bluth, respectively) do voices, as does Chris Parnell from SNL and 30 Rock (Dr. Leo Spaceman). The writing is hilarious and whip-smart, the show is fast paced, and they clearly have no qualms about pushing racial and sexual comedic boundaries. As far as what the show is about, it’s about Sterling Archer, who works for a private spy organization called ISIS. Archer is like James Bond, if Bond was a lazy, privileged rich boy. He’s a dick, and a bit obsessed with getting his ex back, a fellow agent named Lana Kane. Lana Kane is tough as nails, but has a soft spot for her current boyfriend: wimpy, insecure ISIS accountant Cyril (Chris Parnell). ISIS is run by Sterling’s mother Malory Archer (Jessica Walter), who is domineering and constantly on the lookout for a new man. There’s a few other characters, like sexual freak secretary Cheryl (Judy Greer) and sexually frustrated and overweight HR specialist Pam. Often the assignments given to the agents seem besides the point, and much of the humor comes from the interplay between the characters.
