Critic Reviews for Archer Season 4

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7)

Archer and company haven't grown up so much as they've grown, slowly, richer and more rounded.

Jan 2, 2014 | Full Review…

Archer is one of the linchpins of an FX comedy lineup that rivals some of best network sitcom schedules ever constructed.

Most of the jokes still click.

Jan 17, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Like I said, this show has mastered its formula as only the best shows on TV know how to - and 'Fugue and Riffs' is a fine example of that mastery.

Feb 20, 2020 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

Season four of Archer ended on a high and triumphant note and was in keeping with a run which hasn't been perfect with an odd dud in the mix but has kept up the exceptional quality of this massively underrated programme.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Archer is a fast-paced adventure story that also manages to look at the banalities of working with the same group of people... all while making brilliant observations about the hang-ups, insecurities, and generally personalities of its characters.

Oct 30, 2019 | Full Review…

Who says they don't make tidy, innovative 20-minute TV shows anymore? FX's Archer packs so much into its small story arcs, even fans have a hard time keeping up.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

The jokes are there, and the cast as sharp as ever, so welcome back, Sterling Archer. Shazam, indeed.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

Clearly, Archer is coming for you. Phrasing. Boom!

Jan 24, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

If you've been putting it off because it's animated and you're not into that kind of thing, then you are sorely missing out on one of the funniest television shows on the air right now.

Jan 2, 2014 | Full Review… all about the funny, and kicks off its fourth season of deranged spy parody with a hilarious twist on The Bourne Identity.

Dec 19, 2013 | Full Review…

It's a strong, funny episode to open the new season, as is next week's episode.

Audience Reviews for Archer: Season 4

  • Sep 02, 2019
    If you haven't checked out this show yet you need to.
  • Feb 28, 2018
    Archer season four is one of the best seasons full of great voice acting and always the lovable cast Archer, Cyril, lana, and the crazy doctor Krieger this season is full of action and laughs 10/10
  • Jan 17, 2018
    Seamlessly building on every single character while adding new ones that don't feel out of place, Season 4 of Archer cranks the raunch up to a gleefully obscene point but never loses the intelligence and wit of its humor.
  • Sep 21, 2015
    Archer is one of the best written comedies on television and with Season 4, they remain atop the animated sitcom world.
  • Apr 23, 2014
    If Archer's 4th season is slightly less enjoyable than the previous three, then it's only because it's no longer feeling so novel (which might be why the format was rebooted for the fifth season). Plenty of great episodes here though such as Legs, Once Bitten, and the two-part closer Sea Tunt which pays reference/homage to Sealab 2021. I still can't fathom why Adult Swim passed on this series.

    I got to get back to Earth before the Stargate closes. Mother, the chevrons are locking! Such a great show with hilarious writing, pop culture references, and a amazing cast.
