are you enjoying "archer vice" current season as much as prior ISIS seasons? i consider myself an avid archer fan but this season is kinda meh to me. there are some funny moments but overall i miss the spy gimmick. not ready to abandon the show but really not digging the new stuff. how about you?

About the same. Its watchable maybe not as good but at least theyre trying something different. I wonder if itll ever go back

I enjoy the alligators scenes because theyre my number one fear as well

I enjoy the show
as long as the writing's good then I'll go with it
but I understand what you mean about missing the spy stuff

The season started slow and Pam got pretty annoying after a couple episodes with the cocaine addiction, but the last three or four episodes have been legitimately hilarious. The Rules of Extraction is one of my favorite episodes the show has ever done, period.

Plus, it's been announced that next season they're going back to the spy format. I'm glad about that, Archer Vice is great but I couldn't see it working long-term.

Adam Reed has already stated that they're going back to the spy format next season. Very glad to hear it, TBH. This season has been painfully slow.

It's been ok. Still hysterical, but just missing something

Glad they're going back to original format next season.

Also Pam's addiction was absolutely unbearable.

I like the new season, not the latest episode but the one before it was one of the funniest in the series, IMHO. I was cracking up the entire time. This season was slow to get going, but I feel like it's found its momentum.
My God, it's full of stars!

I'm a season behind. I don't have cable so I just buy the last season on Amazon when it comes out.

I feel like Lana was a real good character and that the whole baby thing has resulted in focus shifting away from her and letting Pam, a really shitty character, to step into the spotlight.

Well I just watched episode 8 and 9 last night, and episode 8 was probably top 5 of the entire show. Anything with Archer and crocodiles is amazing

I thought the last 2 were better than the first ones this season. I like when Archer does the rampage stuff. Still one of my favourite shows though.

Yeah also not really into the pam coke thing (completely unrealistic, even 1 g of pure coke in less than an hr would send anyone to the hospital) or the country singing, have to see where that leads.

I mean, it's still good and I'm still enjoying it but it lost a lot of its original appeal for me. And not because of the lack of spy themes - I think the episodes just aren't written as well as they could be.

For starters, the entire group has become completely incompetent this season. We all know they were never a truly functional spy agency but in the first for seasons they still managed to pull of a good portion of the stuff they attempted. It kinda followed the 'Semi-thought out plan > Sterling fucks it up by being drunk and/or an asshole > Sterling manages to pull it off by being drunk and/or an asshole' and that's what made it great.

Now it's just 'Failure > Failure > Failure' which isn't bad in essence but it's just done so predictably that it starts to bore and annoy me.

And don't get me started on Pam. She's just gotten so annoying that I want to personally put a bullet in her head. She literally fucks everything up and has eaten so much of their cocaine it's unreal - most of the crew is supposed to hate her or at least sort of dislike her so there is no logical reason for why Mallory hasn't shot her brains out already, given all the money losses due to her addiction.

So far she has been the biggest thorn in their side by a long shot and they do nothing about it. And yet in the first season* Archer brought her down to the ground and beat her with her dolphin thingy just for doing her job.

I dunno, I guess a TL;DR would be:

I wouldn't mind the take they did on the series if it was done properly, but it's just executed in a way that makes me wonder what could have been if they just put more thought in the plot-line.

Edit: Oh yeah, the last couple of episodes were cool though. Loved the jungle one. And I don't know why but I'm really liking the whole country singer thing - probably because the songs she sang so far were genuinely great.

I'm a huge fan of Adam Reed and Matt Thompson. Frisky Dingo is my second favorite animated sitcom (after Futurama).

But I have to admit that they are really fucking up this Archer season. Lana having a baby is stupid and has made her take a backseat the entire time. Pam is just annoying on every level now. "Cherlene" is dumb idea and the only good part of this country singer arc has been the rocket pop up the ass. Mallory as a character doesn't really work outside the context of a spy agency, why they still take her lead when she allegedly isn't even the one that got the coke in the first place is beyond me.

The Archer, Ray, and Cyril dynamic has been really funny though. And it's good to see Ray actually get some screen time for once. Same with Krieger. This is the only season where I feel like they've utilized him enough.

So overall I'd say it's been really shitty so far. The Rules of Extraction is a great episode though.

Saw there was an Archer thread. I have never actually watched an episode but I wanted to say one thing:

I haven't seen the new season, but this is what's going to make or break it for me. I hope the writers realize that Krieger is unquestionably the best character on the show.

When Krieger was selling cocaine online and they cut to his hologram wife trying to box it up I ****ing lost it.

Oh they know. And restraining him to only a few jokes an episode is their way of keeping him mysterious.
