I've now watched 4 of the 10 first season episodes of Archer via Netflix streaming, and this is what I have to say: Why isn't everyone watching and talking about this show?

I understand that the FX factor has a lot to do with it - I wouldn't have discovered it if it weren't for the internet - but wow, this is some really fucking funny television.

If you're still confused, let me tell you everything you need to know. Sterling Archer is a spy. He's kind of a dick, but in an awesome way. His mother (voiced by Arrested Development's Jessica Walter) runs the agency. Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer and Chris Parnell also work there. Yes, it's animated. NO, it's definitely not for all.

If you like the aforementioned Arrested Development, Better Off Ted or the like, this series is for you. The writing is incredibly smart, the humor completely irreverent, and dare I say it...Archer can be kinda hot sometimes.

Apparently they've been given a second season, but no word yet on when it will begin airing. So for now, catch up with the first season on Netflix streaming and Hulu! That's an order from ISIS.
