I REALLY don't care about Laurel's downward spiral, and every return to her storyline took me away from the rest of the episode which I was really enjoying. If the show follows the comics, then I guess Laurel will replace Sarah and thus there is a reason for her to get her life straightened out. But since I have found Laurel a drag since episode 1, I just don't care.

Your in the wrong thread :) You're thinking Arrow.  Though he is an Archer ;)  Just not the drug running type ;)

Phrasing?

 

Pretty much anytime Krieger has to make a decision...hilarity.

A badass Kenny Loggins in the "Danger Zone" had me chuckling throughout.

I must be the only one who still wonders what the hell was in that briefcase.  :)  Great nearly pulp fiction level counter story that just stayed there

I was actually really excited by the premise of entirely shaking up the status quo on this show after the promising first episode of the season, but I've been mostly disappointed so far by everything since.  The Kenny Loggins thing was great, and a couple of twists on show convention were awesome ("are we not doing 'phrasing' anymore?"), but overall I haven't found it that funny this year.

The show was renewed for two more years yesterday.

Ironic to me that these last two episodes since I've complained have probably felt the strongest all season to me. :D

 

I feel like it's at least partly because Archer (the character)'s antics are far more amusing in the field rather than sitting in a mansion all episode.

I agree. The field two-parter had the feeling of the old show, and frankly spending half the episode back in the mansion with coke-addicted Pam, singing Cheryl, and Malory continually bitching has worn out any comic impact it might have had earlier in the season.

I loved everything in the jungle.  I tend to agree, it's strongest when they are 'out of the house', I also liked Lurlene on the road a few episodes back.

But it is interesting watching Pam slim down and become smaller and smaller as they keep playing up her coke habit.

Show's been renewed for 2 more seasons

Agreed. Possibly my favorite episodes of the season. The seemingly-never-ending tumbling jeep was amazing, as was Archer's description of why he would be scared of crocodiles (along with the over-the-top gore of them claiming the corpses).

 

The B-plot couldn't keep up, but that's because the A-plot was simply on fire.

 

("EVERYTHING!! They eat everything!  And fear is their bacon-bits!")

 

 

Lots of funny stuff this week. The running gags with Woodhouse crack me up every time.

 

"...Goddamn, Woodhouse."

 

"Only thing for a grass, mum."


"Pablo, please take Chet's corpse into the other room, and then fix Mr. Hallenbeck a drink."

Great dialogue tonight.  Most of it can't be reprinted here, but it's hilarious

"Pam, let me ask you--"
"The butthole, Lana, is what I was--"

 

That was a lot of fun. Not quite as good as last week, in my opinion, but pretty close. Loved how the cutting between present and flashbacks allowed them to fit in some great jokes and gags at Tunt Manor. Mallory was wonderfully terrifying. Jessica Walter is a national treasure, and we are lucky to have her.

 

"What the hell is the mirror for?!"

"So you can watch!"

Now that is a DEEP easter egg/inside joke.

No comments on the season finale? Looks like we're getting that reboot that Adam Reed hinted at halfway into the season. And Archer now has a little girl! Looking to see how that develops next season!

So, I rather enjoyed the "Day No Pigs Would Die" reference. And an in-charge Mallory.

 

These past few episodes have been the best thing Christian Slater's done in the last decade.

The final 3 episodes were pretty great.  

 

I hope Pam beats her addiction...she looks like she's gonna die soon!

 

The baby giving the 'hold that thought' finger we associate with Archer was classic.
