Critic Reviews for Archer Season 2

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

FX's hilarious animated spy satire, "Archer," is consistently wrong on multiple levels, which accounts for much of the reason it's consistently hilarious.

Jaw-droppingly funny and brilliantly voice-acted.

"Archer" took no time at all to hook me. I loved the show.

Jan 27, 2011 | Full Review…

It's a brisk, naughty little show, among the freshest of genre parodies. Despite its vintage look, Archer feels very modern.

Jan 27, 2011 | Full Review…

"Archer" hits the comedy bull's-eye with smart, provocative writing.

Jan 27, 2011 | Full Review…

Instead, season two somehow both doubled down on what we learned about the characters and on the weird gags. This has been a good year for comedy on TV, but Archer has made a good case for itself as being one of the best ones out there, if not THE best.

Mar 21, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

The best adult-focused cartoon show that can't be found on Cartoon Networks' Adult Swim is back in all its sly glory.

Jan 27, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Archer is sleekly animated, has a cool retro design, and writing that manages to be both smart and bawdy all at once, but most of all, it has a fantastic voice cast.

Jan 27, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

As a critic, there are screeners I watch out of obligation, screeners I watch studiously and screeners I gobble up immediately upon getting them, like a starving man gorging himself on chocolates. FX's Archer is in the last category.

Season 2 of FX's insanely funny animated comedy kicks off with one of its best-to-date episodes.

Audience Reviews for Archer: Season 2

  • Jan 02, 2019
    Excellent comedy. The entire cast is a talented set of voices and the artwork is entertaining. The relationships are constantly surprising and entertaining. A must watch for the mature adult who doesn't want to be too mature. As the cast becomes better acquainted to the audience, it simply gets better. Not even the villains are lacking.
  • Jan 28, 2018
    Great season with more laughs and great episode's archer season 2 is a must see
  • Jan 17, 2018
    Archer Season 2 builds off the promise of the first season and delivers the same irreverent and raunchy humor that make the show so much fun.
  • Feb 18, 2017
    For everything in Archer that you see coming, there is something that you will never see coming. It's this sort of familiar yet surprising formula that makes archer's such a memorable and entertaining show.
  • May 06, 2016
    Perfection! The best season of Archer to date. Hilarious!
  • Sep 21, 2015
    Archer is now the best animated show on television with unmatched comedic writing and hysterical characters.
  • Apr 02, 2014
    The sophomore year for Archer is just as funny as it's freshman, and at times even eclipses it. Introducing more a sense of continuity this season, the overall feel is more dynamic, and while the episodes work great as stand-alones, audiences would most benefit from watching them in order.
