Archer appears set for another stellar year.

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.

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.

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.

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…

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…

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…

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…

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.

Midlife crisis continues to be a good look for Archer.

Audience Reviews for Archer: Season 7

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The first few episodes seem reliant on abusive physical humor surpassing previous seasons; although the injuries characters sustained have always been pretty painful-looking, I don't think we really needed 15 seconds of Archer falling down a hill for absolutely no reason. The show has also added an extremely jarring screenwipe with colored silhouettes that doesn't work well with the surprisingly reserved punchlines. Occasionally there is no punchline at all; merely awkward silences or mild remarks followed by a screenwipe.
  • Mar 01, 2016
    Was worried this was going to be like Season 5 where it ends up caught up too much in the arch. But instead makes you wonder how they're going to do Season 8 without the title character. Not one of the strongest seasons, but still way better than most of television this year.
