Critic Reviews for Archer Season 3

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

I just consumed the first four episodes of the new season without taking a break, thoroughly enjoyable empty calories, and now I'm thirsty.

Good start to the third season, and from what I sampled, it builds from there.

Smartly-written, expertly performed, and perfectly structured, season three of Archer ups the series' game substantially.

Jul 3, 2018 | Full Review…

It's good to have the ISIS team back.

Jul 2, 2018 | Full Review…

If the first four episodes of Season Three are any indication, this could be Archer's best season yet.

Sep 15, 2011 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

We're off and running with another season of great animation, skillful voice acting and hilariously foul-mouthed fun.

Sep 15, 2011 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

I think its jokes are predictable and its '60s-era styling is tired.

Sep 15, 2011 | Full Review…

Smart writing, great voice cast, cool animation and, just so you understand, still more smart writing.

Audience Reviews for Archer: Season 3

  • 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. A constant improvement after each series, it makes being an adult with a sense of humor a great existence.

    If the early Archer was more scattershot and less consistent (not really a problem in my opinion though), Season 3 brings it into the consistent structure, interpreting broader narratives while never straying from the strong characters that run the show.
  • Mar 17, 2017
    Season 3 of 'Archer' doesn't deviate much from the general status quo but what it does right is keep the ball rolling with a continuous slide of gags that seem ingrained in every line of dialogue recorded.
  • Mar 11, 2016
    Hilarious show that seems to get funnier with each season. It's always outrageous and uses great guest stars (along with the regulars), to voice absurd characters. It makes for terrific binge watching.
  • Sep 21, 2015
    It doesn't get much funnier then Season 3 of Archer, thanks to outstanding writing and hilariously irreverent characters.
  • Apr 13, 2014
    Just when you thought Archer's formula would grow a little stale for it's third year, the show ranked up it's creativity and became better still. Being bookended by two series of arc episodes, the show definitely suggests it's become a bit more ambitious, yet also realizes that it's foremost a laugh-fest, which it is a mile-a-minute. Enlisting some great guest talent this season as well (from David Cross to Burt Reynolds), the show is pure medicine for those lacking an alternative comedy fix, and it's slick animation is only complemented by slicker writing. Filthy fun in the very best sense.
