Television is terrible lately. Terrible. Between these pseudo-reality shows following individuals that aren’t capable of handling small life problems, fucktards competing on some of the most asinine game shows ever created, the rapid decline of former favorites (ahem, The Office, 24) and a whole slew of horrible new sitcoms that are mere illusions of what quality programming should be, it’s gotten to the point where I want to physically harm my television.
Amongst this digital fecal matter being touted as new programs, Archer has risen to the challenge of providing us with a sharp, well-written, entertaining comedy with one of the best casts in the business. I know I’ve been on the Archer wang all season, and the amount I’ve talked about it on here and to my friends every time I’m drunk and television comes up is reaching a dangerously annoying level. Regardless, I shall proceed. From Warming Glow:
“Executive Producers Adam Reed and Matt Thompson are delivering a hilarious series and it truly earned a second season,” said Grad. “H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell and Judy Greer comprise one of the best voice casts of any animated series on TV. We’re very happy with the audience response and critical acclaim for Archer and are excited to move forward with it.”
“We are incredibly excited about the opportunity to make a second season of Archer,” said Reed, “and grateful that FX has enough faith in the show to allow it to build an audience. Excelsior!”
In what I’m assuming is a celebration, FX is running a 4-episode half-marathon on Thursday night. I’ve put the promo video at the top. Get familiar.
