Archer, Tuesday, June 12TV and Radio
A scene from Archer.
ANOTHER animated adult comedy, Archer, a hit in the US, features a brilliant voice cast - among them Saturday Night Live's Chris Parnell, Arrested Development's Jessica Walter and Talk Soup's Aisha Tyler - and great animation, but the writing can at times feel a little forced. A spy parody, which takes the most misogynistic and racist elements of James Bond and exaggerates them wildly, revolves around the International Secret Intelligence Service, where Archer is the star spy. There's some bawdy laughs - as is typical in adult animations - and this series is very much worth perservering with. It gets funnier with each episode.
