Archer S12 - no more coma

I thought the first dream season was alright in content, but I have never been a fan of the noir stuff.

 

Danger Island was a ton of fun. Indiana Jones meets Archer is a formula that really gels and the content was really good.

 

Archer in space was a tiny bit of a disappointment to me. Out of all the settings, it was the one most inately interesting to me, being a big sci-fi nerd. But the setting didn't gel great with the characters and the season was a bit too meandering. Still like it more than Dreamland, though.

I fell off of Archer and Always Sunny a few years back. Not really even sure why, since I always loved both shows. Guess quarantine is a good excuse to get caught up...now I just have to figure out where I was in these shows, I think I've long-since deleted the last episodes of them that I downloaded.

I also stopped watching this, before the coma stuff I guess.

 

It's weird, because I did really like it, but I just kinda stopped.

 

I do this with games too, I'll be enjoying it and then abruptly stop for whatever reason (usually something going on in my life that just eats up my attention), and then it's hard to get myself to go through the "getting back into it" phase.

This. Archer is still very funny, but the three coma seasons definitely varied in quality, with Danger Island being the best, Archer 1999 having some great episodes and some real weak ones, and then the Hollywood noir first coma season was meh.

 

This new season dealing with the passing of three years and no Archer influence looks great.

Both shows, particularly It's Always Sunny, are better than ever.

"Oh Woodhouse what I wouldn't give to force feed you gravel one last time." :lol:

 

 

Just fyi if anyone is wondering, I checked on the episode count and unfortunately the return to the real world does not get a corresponding return to a 13 or even 10 episode season. It's still just 8 like the dream seasons.

 

But I agree, the first two episodes have been solid.

Oh wow, I didn't realize it had already premiered, and it's on Hulu, and there's already two episodes up! 

 

Sploosh:dancing:

 

 

One year later and exact same thing happened.

 

Just saw a commercial for Archer and realized two episodes are already up on Hulu.

Anyone else been watching? I just got started, just finished episode 1. Four episodes are out so far. It was a solid first episode, some good lines, I laughed a solid bit. I hear the season only gets better.

 

 

The later episodes have definitely been funnier but there's an awful lot of retread humor. Cyril is back to being a candy obsessed pushover, Pam and Cheryl are pretending to be British again, Archer doesn't give a shit about AJ, etc.

Well some of that is to be expected at this point but sounds about right. I do think it's time for the show to wrap up and close out as strong as it an at this point. Maybe next season will be the last, especially with no more Jessica Walter.

Yeah. This is a weird thing to notice, but they haven't done a credit tribute to her or anything? I guess they're waiting until her last appearance or something?

That is weird - maybe building it up for the last episode? Perhaps the show addresses it directly or something meta like that.

Woodhouse is still dead and not doing any work.

 

Typical, lazy Woodhouse.....

Not sure about others but last week's flashback episode was quite good. Too many callbacks inserted into one "first mission" flashback, but otherwise I enjoyed getting into some character development again. Also, the show has been renewed for a season 13. Someone should probably update the thread title indicating we're discussing season 12 as it airs now, not season 11.

FXX has renewed its beloved animated spy series Archer for a 13th season.

  • Kal-El814 changed the title to Archer S12 - no more coma

So that was a weird end to a weird season. I assume they made it before they knew if they were going to be renewed for Season 13?

 

Also despite the episode being kinda weird (Beta Cuckington aside), that was a surprisingly sweet way to send off Mallory. Having her there with the character her husband voiced was genuinely really nice.

I really enjoyed the season finale. Very surprised by the season 13 renewal, but I felt this season was pretty good overall. Not amazing or anything but it' skind of crazy I've lived with this show since 2009. I was 23 and I'm 35 now. The fact the show is still even this good is a testament to the structure, plot, character archetypes and voice cast of this show. I wish more fans still watched, the show is better now that we're back in the real world since the stakes are higher again and the drama more palpable. This season had issues and I think the loss of Jessica Walters will be a problem next season given how integral that character is to the show but my wife and I will definitely be watching next season to see how things continue to shake out.
