ansuz07: The show's time period is fluid - it is set in whichever year is convenient for the story that week.


They actually lampshade this:

Archer: Well, unless it was the creepy-old-people-bondage-sex police, why would anyone break in here and shoot him?! No answer? Okay, let's ask him.  [Pulls off mask]
Lana: Holy shiat!
Malory: Because he's Savio Mascalzone.
Archer: Uh...
Lana: Oh, for- The prime minister of Italy!
Archer: The what?! Wait, doesn't Italy use a king?
Lana: No, they don't "use a king!"
Malory: What year do you think this is?!
Archer: I... yeah, exactly. Good question.

DaStompa: Depending on what time archer is set in, early NV goggles would most def. blind you before the tube burned out, there was no cutoff.


Archer is quite obviously set between 1957 and 2025.

tom baker's scarf: My rewind moment was the family feude screen when he said "show me cock flavored spit"


That is definitely one of the all-time great lines.

This, however, might be my all-time favorite moment:

t3knomanser: rickythepenguin: how they jumped into various scenes on last line of dialogue

My only problem is that it's become quite the trope on the show. They've done that so often this season.

And no, the most recent one was the one where they had to go undercover on the set of "Bastard Chef". It was "meh".


I think plenty of Farkers were probably just happy to see Anthony Bourdain get dumped out of a helicopter.

ongbok: ansuz07: ongbok:
Archer's favorite actor is Burt Reynolds and they should him acting out Smokey and the Bandit in a flashback to his childhood. So it has to be set in modern times considering Archer's age.

Yes and no.

While that is true, there are multiple details that show it set earlier - Kreiger is one of the "Boys from Brazil" and Malory was said to be an aspiring actress during WWII, both of which imply that the show is set in the 80's (assuming Kreiger is 40ish and Malory was in her 20's during the 1940's).  Then there is the scene where Ron Cadillac is a young man in the 20's, which implies the show is set in the 60's or 70's.

The show's time period is fluid - it is set in whichever year is convenient for the story that week.

True that.

To tell you the truth I never really paid any attention to when it was set until it was mentioned in this thread. The only reason why I thought of the Smokey and the Bandit reference is that the Burt Reynolds episode is the funniest episode to me.


Yeah - "The Man from Jupiter" was a great episode.  I loved that they made Burt such a badass.

That's one of the things I love about the show - they play around with the technology, culture and time period to make the episode work.  It makes for a very anachronistic show, which adds to the comedy.

liam76: t3knomanser: rickythepenguin: i still remember a thread pretty recently where someone said the animation was very -- what was the wrod -- some guy said the animation was second rate or bush league or amateur hour

I recall that thread too. The animation is very static, and movement tends to look stilted. It bears obvious earmarks of being animated in Flash. That said, they've made those elements part of their  style. They own it, and structure their visuals around it. The blocking is closer to a sitcom than cinematic, but that's what the show is. It works, for that.

The animation, from a technical standpoint, is crap. Compared to something like classic Warner Brothers or Disney animation, the movement and fluidity of the characters, their expressiveness- it's crap. It's garbage. The person who was beating on the animation wasn't  wrong, but they were missing the point. "Archer" has built a style around highly detailed characters and backdrops, not around technically proficient animation. Doing more dynamic animation would distract from the show.

I avoided archer for the first two season becuase the animation was so shiatty.

After I gave it a chance, everything else you mentioned more than made up for it.


Did you avoid South Park for the same reasons? I'm actually interested.

I dunno about that "owning it" part...



Same Flash style, same voice actor.


Just discovered Home Movies (they're all over youtube, btw). That show is awesome. Episode where McGurk blows out his pecs is a riot.

I'm surprised they haven't brought Conway Stern back since "Diversity Hire".  For all the other recurring villains that received multiple episodes, they seemed to have forgotten about him completely.

Do you think we should sit out a few episodes, Barry, and give someone else a turn.
Yes I do, Other Barry.  Yes I do.

I just watched what i think was last week's episode last night (they're in the mideastern desert, arhcer gets bit by a snake and hallucinates).  farking BRILLIANT writing, how they jumped into various scenes on last line of dialogue.  i know it has been done (Austin powers to name just one example) but it was way smarter and better executed.

i freaking LOVE archer.
