Let's just get this out of the way right now

***SPOILERS AHEAD. DO NOT PROCEED IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED!***


Loved everything about the episode, from the very beginning with the Bob's Burgers tie-in, to the ostrich at the end.

Ohh and did anyone else notice when Archer slaughtered the KGB agents in the burger joint, the two "somewhat normal" kids (Tina & Gene) were horrified, but the bunny ears one, Louise, was almost giddy at the all the gore?

Yes, and the only thing I would have wanted that didn't happen was to have a Kristen Schaal cameo. Apparently it's happening later, but damn it, I would have loved Louise and Archer interacting.


Also, Krieger's tiny pocket pig?? No good comes of that.

Everything about the premiere was awesome. I went to the live show in NYC last weekend. They gave some teasers for the season finale, which may or may not have some connection to one of the creators' prior television projects.

That Sheen show has got to be headed straight into the abyss, right? "Summer of Sheen" proved that most of us have only a limited appetite for this kind of stuff.

What is it now, 89 more episodes to go? Good move there FX.

I was trying to do that yesterday (I wanted to rewatch it), but I couldn't find it anywhere (I didn't want to mess with torrents with this bandwidth I have).  Let me know if you do find it somewhere though.  Otherwise, I will just have to wait until I get home next week to watch it on my DVR.

Try watcharcherfree.com, they have everything else. They try to get you to download a video player that you don't need, but you can make the popup go away with the web inspector.

My favorite part was the "well, there goes the frying pan theory..."

Awesome. Yeah, the fight in the beginning was awesome, especially juxtaposed with the "Bob's Burgers" meme.

Shoving the spray can in the agent's mouth and shooting it was priceless (in a cartoony violence way).

Trollin4Colon: Anyone notice krieger sticking a (presumably) live pig in his pocket at the beginning of the episode?


Yep. Any other show, you'd expect that pig to be important to the plot later. With Krieger, you just notice the pig and move on.

it was pretty meh, actually. the pacing was way off between the good parts and they really dragged out the jokes. I didn't care for the bobs burgers spoof, it was too obvious. They could have done a much better job. I was halfway through a quart of bourbon by the end of it though, so my night turned out pretty good anyway.

FX generally reruns the previous week's episode late the same night as new episodes.

It was a brilliant episode, and I can't wait to see the next Bob's Burgers to see if they do something to allude to it.

Archer is farking awesome.

And Lana is hot.

This episode continued a running gag that's underappreciated, but I've always enjoyed: Archer still has the tattoos of Dicky and the wee baby Seamus' names on his back. So many shows would have declared that irrelevant and discarded them as soon as that plotline was over, but they've stuck with it every time. It's so small a thing, but one of the things that makes this show great is the way they actually keep continuity.

They won't, unless the producers of both shows have been planning something for a long time. Most animated (or even live-action) shows can't make references that topical the way South Park can.

Never seen any of Bobs Burgers, so I have a feeling I was missing the gist of half of the episode. Stupid way to start a new season IMO; with a crossover episode that many won't 'get'. Still, a funny episode.

One of the reasons I love this show so much is that in the same scene it will have a joke about rubbing someone's testicles AND a pun involving obscure British spy novelists.

I noticed this last night as well. That is dedication to a joke.

Reminds me of the old Police Squad episodes where at the end of each episode Drebbin would say that so and so would be spending their time in prison along with Sally Decker and ...

I'm guessing most Archer fans are familiar with Bob's Burgers since Jon Benjamin is the star of both shows.

Wasn't Mr. Ford at the end of the one where Archer gets the spy car for his birthday?

I've seen about 3 episodes of Bob's Burgers and all of Archer. I got it, but I'm not a fan of the other show. I knew Bob's Burgers existed long before I knew it was the same guy.

I didn't know it was the same guy until I looked up his IMDB after reading this thread.
