Critic Reviews for Archer: Season 5

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (3)

This new season has been reassuring proof that Archer can explore new territory while remaining true to itself.

It's still reliably dirty... but in the service of something much grimier and at once totally fresh. It's also very, very funny.

January 22, 2014 | Full Review…

A rare, but refreshing move for an animated series...

[Rebooting] gives the series new life. Not that it was floundering at all, but there was a certain circuitousness to the plotlines that Archer Vice not only interrupts, but short-circuits completely.

January 27, 2014 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

The episode succeeded in assuring fans things won't really change all that much, and the show is in the right hands.

January 20, 2014 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

Archer's affection for character and craft makes it more likely to be remembered as one of the great TV shows of our time, and not just another dirty cartoon.
