Well, I absolutely love the show. Mostly because of the banter between the main cast (and the phrasing), but also because it spoofs the whole idea of the super spy by making everything come at a real world price (tinnitus, std, pension plans, breast cancer, etc).

I'm not holding out a lot of hope for this new season after the Reed-free episodes last season, but I'll have to watch nonetheless.

Watched a couple of episodes of Archer in SPAAAACE!

- I hate what they've done to the opening music. Surely it was possible to sci-fi it without making so unpleasant.
- Something seems to have gone wrong with the visual referencing. The other series used to exaggerate the style without directly referencing stuff (or only rarely). But this seems to have loads of directly referenced stuff. Oh this is Aliens. This is Firefly. This is Thor: Ragnorak. And they don't go together very well, and it's distracting. It's a salad not a melting pot.

It leaves me with the feeling they weren't particularly enthusiastic about the sci-fi theme.

Having said that I HATE the look (and content) of anime so we probably just have completely different tastes.

what? all anime? every single japanese animated cartoon? all of em? even Totoro?!?

edit: I really don't think Archer is a good looking show, I'm not saying I hate it, I do think it's funny enough what I've seen of it.

I've now watched the first couple of space episodes since I'd never got round to it since the last 2 series bored me.

I really like Cheryl's haircut.

I guess I haven't really given it much of a chance. The bits I have seen just seem boring, weird-looking, not funny and over the top "cute". Then there's the frequent sexualising of extremely young girls.
