Netflix Recommendation: Archer

What the show is about: Sterling Archer (guy in the middle) is the world’s most daunting spy. He works for ISIS, a spy agency run by his mother. In between dealing with his boss and his co-workers – one of whom is his ex-girlfriend – Archer manages to annoy or seduce everyone that crosses his path. His antics are only excusable because at the end of the day, he still somehow always manages to thwart whatever crises was threatening mankind.

Why you should watch: If you’re a fan of shows like Robot Chicken and Family Guy in its prime, than Archer won’t dissapoint. Archer has a very strong cast which is full of well-developed characters and there isn’t a weak link in the bunch. The writing on the show is extremely clever and you’ll be hard-pressed to find an episode that won’t have you in tears from laughter.

Because the episodes aren’t too focused on a single plot, I would recommend watching episode 3 of season 1 entitled “Diversity Hire” to see if you will like the humor or not.

 

Show Rating: 10/10
