Archer is a show that heavily relies upon its references. It stars the titular agent Sterling Archer. Painted as a Bond-esque character, he is an alcoholic womanizer who thinks little of others. The satire is done well, bold enough to be obvious, while subtle enough to retain humour. The setting is intentionally vague, a mix between the 1980’s and current times, giving it an ageless feel that works well with the premise. Comedy lies in the interactions between characters, witty one-liners, and the contrast between Archer’s stupid exterior and complete knowledge of pop culture. For a good show that combines action, humor and a liberal serving of intelligent discourse, you need look no further than Archer.
