This may be blasphemous, but the current season has been a skosh below the quality of previous seasons, so far.

As promised by both last year's new FX production deal for producers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson, and this guy we met named Dave who swore he'd get it done, Archer has been renewed for another season of screwy satirical spy action

Wait, your only source for this tip is a guy named Dave? And you wrote a whole story based on JUST THE TIP!?!

I think that could be because Archer is dialing itself back after doing Heart of Archness and going to SPACE (IN SPAAAACE) in the same season. I still find it hilarious.

/archer getting rid of his voicemail so it just keeps ringing is genius, though

This, and it is early this season, so it might get as good as the other seasons.

Y'all are only saying it's not as good cuz you've had the old ones on repeat. Give it some time to digest, you'll come around.

If not, remember that it's  one guy doing all the writing. That's a helluva load for anybody. Phrasing, boom.

Fourthed. I'm thinking they need to give "shut up" a rest.

For those saying it's not as good as previous seasons, I disagree. The subtlety of some of the humor has been cranked up, and second or third viewings typically reveal things that are easily missed. For example, has anyone actually noticed that Cheryl/Carol has alternated names each episode? In the first season they'd call attention to this sort of thing, but now they just let it ride. I love those little details.

They did a little reference in Midnight Ron.

"Aw, Fat Mike, too?"

And Mr. Ford had an appearance as an elevator repairman.

I fear the crossover episode, the Bob's Burgers part of the season opener was just painful.  It picked up later, but the opening was cringe worthy to me.  What I've learned from the BB and Burt Reynolds episodes is that Archer works best when he is referencing other things or drawing inspiration from them, but once you go full crossover/guest star, not so great.

This season I see more as setting up character background for future arcs, like how they had to spend an episode establishing Ron Cadillac for example.  I'm hoping the season ends with a longer arc (more than two parts) and some Barry action.  As an example I assume Ray's legs will be key in some cyborg vs cyborg plot line later.

/FX can burn in hell for putting their ads on the iTunes downloads

Wierd. I thoughy last week's was the absolute weakest episode of the entire series.

Yep. Everyone I know says the same. It's too scattered and disjointed.

I totally agree with you.  I think Legs and Once Bitten are two of the best episodes ever

Didn't he also show up at one point just saying, "Yeah, my ass is everywhere."

Personally, I'd like to see season five turn INTO season three of Frisky Dingo.

I happen to like this season quite a bit, to be honest.

Put me on board with thinking this season is sub-par, but only by comparison. I still laugh more at Archer than any other show on television.

It's already available on the Canadian Netflix site.
