Archer appears set for another stellar year.

The season concludes on a slightly off-key note. So what? Forget it, readers. It's Archer.

Mar 21, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The work is different, but personality-wise, Archer and his comrades are much the same. At least at first. The show seems to be giving itself license to explore.

Mar 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Archer the TV show is a lot like Sterling Archer the man: charming, more interested in cracking needlessly obscure jokes than in having deep, emotional conversations, and aggressively resistant to change.

The show doesn't even bother justifying the switch anymore; we've all become so accustomed it no longer needs justification. It doesn't really matter where they are or what they're doing. Wherever they are and whatever they're doing, they're funny.

Oct 19, 2018 | Full Review…

I do love how the creators aren't scared to play with the presentation or promos for the show, depending on the theme of the season like they did for Archer Vice.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

But the continued centrality of that fourth and final cornerstone - the show's unfailing energy, and subsequent enthusiasm for self-modification - is what makes it, above all else, the medium's ballsiest and most intrepid offering.

Mar 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

And now it's Sterling Archer becoming an unlicensed private investigator living in Los Angeles. It's so brilliantly obvious, and it pays off remarkably well in Archer season seven.

Mar 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Comedy is hard, callback and self-referential comedy is harder and animation is harder-er. It's a small miracle that Archer has been able to turn in the beginnings of a solid season seven years in.

Mar 21, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's a testament to Reed and his writing team that, like Archer himself, the show's jokes may be off-color, but they always hit their target.

May 5, 2016 | Full Review…

Midlife crisis continues to be a good look for Archer.

Apr 12, 2016 | Full Review…

Archer is consistently in the moment and garners many of its still plentiful laughs by focusing on the immediacy of the world that Reed has created.

Audience Reviews for Archer: Season 7

    There's really not a season of Archer that I don't like. That being said this is a great one.
  • May 16, 2019
    Excellent, except the last episode, which didnt make much sense.
  • 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. While the baby gets annoying after a while, it is not enough to deduct a perfect score in entertainment and value. Absolutely fantastic cast. The finale is the best to date as well, and fills you with suspense.
  • Dec 28, 2017
    Destroying beloved characters one episode at a time.
  • May 14, 2017
    Not quite the low point of Season 5 Archer Vice but still not the best outing this show has given.
  • Apr 05, 2017
    loved the story line. Didn't like that it was a short season.
  • Mar 29, 2017
    SEASON 7 on NETFLIX! :D :D Archer is hands down one of the FUNNIEST shows in the history of television. I'm not exaggerating. Literally laugh every 5 seconds.
  • Mar 23, 2017
    Another incredibly clever season of one of TV's best running shows, Archer: Season 7 delves deeper into its memorable characters' hilarious relationships to one another and makes for an almost perfect season of television.
  • Dec 11, 2016
    The seventh season of Archer fell short. The continuation and connectivity either was too obvious or felt incomplete. Archer's character development seemed to be a little disregarded in this season, which was disappointing. That being said the FX series was still able to make me laugh out loud and come back for more.

    Seven years in and Adam Reed's imaginative spy sit-com has hardly shown the need to shake up its formula, yet it always manages to surprise, and find new ways to keep itself fresh. By relocating the series to LA this year, Reed explores humor relating to Hollywood, while also seamlessly including noir tropes into the narrative that will really appeal to fans of classic Hollywood. The character dynamics are on-point as ever too, with even the most crass dialogue landing as natural for the world that Reed's created. This season even carries better animation than previous ones, with really fluid character movements and action scenes that are as vibrant as they are violent. Still one of the sharpest comedies on television, animated or otherwise, and if the show does get picked up for another season (it hasn't been confirmed), then there's no doubt that it will remain so.
