Perhaps what's most impressive about "Archer" is that it has managed to continually weave an intricate linguistic tapestry to go along with the "Mad Men"-adjacent visual aesthetic it had at its outset.

Suffice it to say, keep the kids away, but you will laugh - and feel guilty about it afterward.

I've seen five "Archer" episodes - and laughed frequently and loudly at all five.

I like "Archer'' because it succeeds where so many of the snarky animated series tend to fail.

FX's new animated "Archer" is one of those shows you're going to love or hate. Put me down for love.

The effect can be like some sort of engrossing hallucination you're having that happens to be killingly funny in spots.

"Archer" wins points with its observational humor about modern life and in its mocking of mundane workplace minutiae.

It's fun, but it's best in moderation.

[Archer] is relying on crude sex jokes and workplace bullying for most of its laughs. Stupid, ludicrous and occasionally quite funny, you wouldn't exactly call Archer sophisticated.

Oct 31, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It can be too much, but if you can ride past those moments - and you have a fondness for throw-away absurdities and wildly inappropriate office behavior - you'll find that Archer is just right.
