Critic Reviews for Archer 1999

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

When you choose to redefine your show every season, there's going to be a season or two that just doesn't work. "1999" may be that season for Archer.

May 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Archer: 1999 is very much what "Archer" has been for the past three seasons and change: filled with lush visuals, quick wit, and inventive, genre-inspired storytelling.

The noir "Dreamland" season, though beautifully drawn, is more somber than the colorful "Archer: Danger Island" Each had their charms, but neither could match the original's level of humor. But "1999" comes pretty close.

[It's an] introduction to the show's highest-concept production to date.

Possibly the highest praise I can give 1999, as the return to an episodic format suggests, is that the team behind the show seem to have learned their lessons from the mistakes of the past.

Nov 4, 2019 | Rating: 7.5/10 | Full Review…

Archer 1999 is a delight, [and] putting the beloved dysfunctional crew in all sorts of retro sci-fi scenarios fits well into the show's framework.

Sep 2, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

My only gripe with Archer: 1999 is that there's no bigger plot to the season; it's just a collection of episodes that are loosely tied together through the space-travel setup.

Jul 10, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

1999 is the first season in a while to throw off later seasons' serious underpinnings and return to Archer's typically irreverent, weird, and raunchy self. And if feels great.

Jul 10, 2019 | Full Review…

Archer: 1999 is an exciting addition to the series and it seems like it has more energy to it than Archer: Danger Island. That being said, it also feels like it might be time to put this show and these characters into cryo-sleep for good.

May 30, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Though it's not a complete return to form, 1999 does take Archer to absurd new heights.

May 30, 2019 | Full Review…

The best thing to come out of the show's shifts in focus is the way Archer can now reinvent the central characters every season, while still maintaining their dysfunctional dynamic.

Audience Reviews for Archer: 1999

  • Apr 10, 2020
    Several of the episodes dont make any sense at all, one even basically cuts off half the episode and plunges into a completely different story with no warning or tying up loose ends. And the last episode, finally bringing archer back to life like the fans have wanted since the beginning of these three idiotic seasons, but doing it in a disappointing and boring way, now that was a massive letdown. At least next season couldnt possibly be worse.
  • Jan 08, 2020
    A welcome return to form after a few disappointing seasons. While still not as good as the first seven seasons, a drastic improvement over "Danger Island" and hopefully a sign for things to come.
  • Nov 21, 2019
    This show hasn't been great since Season 7. While better than the previous season, 1999 still pales in comparison to the originals. They just seem to have lost some of what made the early seasons so great. I probably won't even bothering finishing this season.. 7 episodes in, and I can count the number of times I've laughed on one hand.
  • Oct 10, 2019
    Nothing has changed: "Archer" still contains some of the wittiest dialogues there are out there. And still stubornly refuses to go back to its golden era of spy story parodies. Maybe next year...
  • Oct 10, 2019
    I'm waiting for the original show to come back.
  • Sep 26, 2019
    I absolutely loved archer 1999. It was a lot of fun to watch and in my opinion had some very creative and funny new ideas for a space adventure.
  • Sep 09, 2019
    This is my favorite of the 3 dream seasons.
  • Sep 06, 2019
    Derivative and try-hard, season 10 lacks the wit and pacing that made the first seasons fresh and entertaining. The central plot is lackluster and uninteresting, lacking so much originality it regurgitates a space theme already followed in a previous season. Unfunny, unoriginal and uninspiring. The entire season felt as if it were scripted by teenage writing interns.
  • Sep 02, 2019
    Wasn't my favorite season but I still enjoyed it and can't wait for season 11 to come out
  • Aug 16, 2019
    Archer 1999 (Season 10)- 6/10 Archer still has its moments, but it feels like it's running out of steam. This season takes place in a spacebound, sci-fi universe, but I ask what was the point? The last two alternate universe kept things interesting by having the characters put into new roles and the audience was kept guessing what happens next with the intertwining storylines. Here the characters are mostly back to their old dynamic: all working in a team in a series of mostly episodic plots. So, why does this need to be in space? Why not do just regular Archer universe episodes? Sure there are a couple neat ideas they couldn't do previously, especially the episode "Mr. Deadly," but overall the science fiction stuff isn't justified enough. The characters and the show's trademark back-and-forth digs and squabbles feel worn out by now. Not that there aren't any funny bits, but they aren't as common. Archer and Cheryl especially feel like caricatures of themselves. On the other hand, Krieger as an android produces a lot of fun material. The new setting does cause the animators to be more ambitious. This is definitely the best looking season of Archer. I'd still recommend this to Archer fans, but just don't expect the show's A-material.
