I could never get past the animation style of this show to really be able to judge it.  hmpf

The animation is just eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh.....

The animation itself leaves a little to be desired, but it's perfectly acceptable given the show's low budget. The beautifully drawn backgrounds and the great character designs more than make up for the way it's all animated, in my opinion.

I actually thoroughly enjoy the animation.  It's obvious it was done in flash, but it has a high level of detail and it's clean cut.  You can tell where it originates from, and I loved the 7030 production stuff too.

Don't get me wrong, the animation's very good for what it is. But it certainly doesn't compare to the big budget major network animated shows (whereas, I think the style the show is drawn in actually looks great, which makes the rudimentary animation all the more pleasant).

To be honest, the animation looks more professional than most other animated shows...the character designs are more conventional and realistic, and the environments use more solid lines and defined objects.

That said, it is mostly computer animated, so I can get how some people might find other shows to appear more organically animated or unique. At the end of the day it's completely subjective.

Yes. Yes you are. tongue

I thoroughly enjoyed this season, though. It wasn't quite as good as 1 or 3, but it certainly made up for season 4. I much prefer the more serialised approach, and even though the plot never totally made sense (and I'm not overly excited about them returning to ISIS), it was definitely a worthwhile experiment. I hope the show retains its quality next year, given its lousy track record with even-numbered seasons.

Actually I was wondering where the Archer thread went because I just finished Archer Vice this weekend. It's not that I don't care about that baby development, it's that if you didn't see that coming you really don't understand the show. There were somethings that were left unexplained that kind of confused me: mostly the Krieger clones.

You know I love this show and I liked season 4 just fine, though I'm already blanking on what happened even though I just watched the entire thing like three weeks ago. But I did find it funnier than season 3, the episode with the guard dog alone made me laugh really hard. But it hasn't been since season 2 that this show got a huge I-have-to-pause-the-episode-because-I'm-laughing-so-hard response (that cancer arc just slayed me). Like season 5, at least I became aware of it, leaned a little too hard on call-back jokes.

Also Ron Cadillac reminds me of my math professor and that kind of makes me just love him.

Well, that season turned out to be an extended press of the reset button for a few long-running arcs, or teasers of what could have been arcs. I'm looking at you, Krieger.

I'm definitely pleased that they're returning to ISIS, and that Lana admitted to Archer she still loves him, but I don't know how I feel about Archer raising a child. It's going to be a fucked-up kid if he or his mother end up taking an active parenting role in its life, but it's going to be equally fucked up if it's left alone with Wodehouse, or raised by its gun-toting, man-handed, mother.

I suppose that it'll be funny, either way.

I love the idea of Archer Vice, but I don't think that they pulled it off particularly well.

It was an entertaining season, but I'd say that it also represents the worst season of the show to date. Also, it's not a show where I feel much emotional attachment to the characters, so I couldn't care less if two of them have a daughter, now.

A really interesting interview with the show's creator regarding season 6.

Bump!

It has been confirmed that Archer will be dropping the name ISIS this season, for obvious reasons.

Rebump! (or perhaps I should've gone with unrebump?)

Pretty decent season premiere. A few of the jokes fell flat (namely Archer and the ladyboys) but it was a solid episode nonetheless. I particularly enjoyed Archer asking the Japanese soldier if he knew how to make Eggs Woodhouse. That was so adorably "Archer."

It felt like a return to form after last season.

I love the idea of Archer Vice, but the whole thing felt somewhat dull in practise.

Mallory's voice sounded completely off in the first scene for some reason, but it soon returned to normal. So yeah, here's to the rest of the season.

Yeah, I noticed that about Mallory as well.

I enjoyed Vice for the most part and felt it was a definitely step up from the lacklustre fourth season, though I agree it could have (and should have) been far more well-executed. Reed and the gang really didn't utilise the full potential of Archer Vice's concept, and that was a tad frustrating. Having said that, I'm still overdue for a rewatch... I'd imagine it works much better in binge/marathon viewing, given the large amount of serialisation.

The most recent episode of Conan featured an Archer "crossover" skit, which was actually pretty damn funny.

It's feeling like there could be a little extra mileage in the show's premise now, which is really what Archer Vice was meant to fix, isn't it? I mean, they were sort of on the edge of losing steam. Now, they seem to be ready for a great sixth season.

Now I want a full episode of Archer with Conan, that was great.
