    The Emmy-nominated Archer is one of the most satisfying comedies of any sort, its densely packed jokes contrasting with the airy, assured confidence a show achieves when its characters seem so three-dimensionally real to their audience.

    Adam Reed--creator, showrunner, voice actor, and writer--seems to have composed Archer both as a love letter to douchebags and as a set of instructions for destroying them. Having a baby might be the final nail in the coffin. Then again, maybe not; Sterling’s the resilient type.

    All the beloved Archer hallmarks are still there too; quick cuts, witty repartee, and recurring gags abound. But the premiere lacks that spark of kinetic insanity that made us fall in love with the slick spook in the first place. [9 Jan 2015, p.74]

    Even as the series begins to show its age, Archer's commitment to character ensures that these episodes never feel too familiar.

    Archer ditches the "Vice" cocaine smuggler angle of season 5 and returns to the world of espionage. Some new additions along the way such as aArcher ditches the "Vice" cocaine smuggler angle of season 5 and returns to the world of espionage. Some new additions along the way such as a baby and even crazier sense of humor keep things fresh even when if doesn't really break the mold at all.

    This season fires off jokes like bullets from an automatic weapon, and they entered the infinite ammo cheat. It's still laugh out loud funny, boldly goes where other shows don't have the balls to, and is somehow even more absurd than ever. It takes it's characters, jokes, and stories and takes them even more over the top. The best part is that it manages to do so without sacrificing what made them so darn lovable despite themselves in the first place.

    There isn't a category of humor that these guys don't touch on. This season regularly dives deep into risqué humor and comes out unscathed. Something most shows can't even fathom. To help offset the wide array of comedic material, there is some genuinely mature material here. Archer's new role as a father and reinvigorated romance with Lana show real growth for the character. It allows this season to break a little new ground.

    For all that's good this season it's greatest strength still lies in it's characters. The cast of Archer is on top as always, and the characters they play are just so darn alive to the viewers that it's hard to not get excited and love spending more time with them. Six seasons in and I'm still loving the show and can't wait for more.

After going changing the template all together for the fifth season the sixth season brings the plot back to its original state. All the sarcasm the fans love will still there. I find that in this season they are adding a few unneeded characters. Christian Slater plays a more prominent role that is unnecessary and also the season is still pretty funny but I think the humour was on a decline from last season. However I did enjoy the finale and it leaves you unaware of where the gang are going next. I'll be tuning in for the next season. Expand

From enriching the characters in the last two seasons and one-upping the climatic zaniness one season to the next; the writing is trying to back-peddle to earlier seasons of Archer dialogue. Archer seems to be written into a corner as the writers seem to be making a choice between further character development or losing the one-liners, rapid-fire dialogue, rampant references, word play, and running gags.

    I raise my fuzzy navel that you may find the light at the end of the tunnel, Archer writers.

    Not sure how there are reviews for season 6 in 2015. since it was released 2 days ago.

    this season is pretty meh. to much of bad characters from the cia guys. there annoying unfunny, and not memorable at all. cyril is barely in ths first 6 episodes. that actor needs to stop working on that other show rick and morty, an unfunny show. and stick to archer. he does it way better.

    what happened in this season? nothing. they established int he last episode that they 'want to return to who they are' and are going to. but why couldnt they have just returned to who they are immediatly instead of wasting an entire year on this crap. season 5 was fun. good changes. but then they stagnate and slowly transition back. should have kept getting more ridiculous or just gone straight back to normal.

    and the decision to make boris an idiot. that was idiotic. boris was smart. as identified in the earlier seasons.

    humor was there. but it wont be anything except a faint memory. because the story is bad. the season is just sex for views and cheap laughs.
