ansuz07: The show's time period is fluid - it is set in whichever year is convenient for the story that week.
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.
tom baker's scarf: My rewind moment was the family feude screen when he said "show me cock flavored spit"
mrmyxolodian: Not much "shocks" me on TV, but when he said that one chick was "the Pele of anal" I literally did a spit take and had to rewind it to see if I heard it correctly./Love this show.
t3knomanser: rickythepenguin: how they jumped into various scenes on last line of dialogueMy 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".
Cerebral Knievel: RoyHobbs22: I thought the HPV would get him in the end.isnt that what got Farrah Fawccet, in the end
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.
A Terrible Human: I'm so excited for the episode on 21st cause what's better than booze and Archer on your birthday?

Lady Beryl Ersatz-Wendigo: Has he mastered 'YYZ' yet?
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 hourI 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.
