You know, I don't normally put my review titles in all caps. But what can I say? This show is... well, BRILLIANT! I've always thought that there are far, far too many five star reviews here on amazon. But if there ever was a show that genuinely deserved a rave, this is it.

Archer is a wonderfully absurdist frolic for strictly adult audiences. Fundamentally this show is a giant spoof of 1960s spy thrillers; a spoof made for decidedly 21st century sensibilities. It's the show Get Smart would have been had all the characters been perpetually high on crystal meth.

In fact, the characters on Archer are all selfish, petty, and utterly and completely venal: the three great ingredients from which comedy is made. They seem to think and act more like deranged adolescents than grown-ups. Deranged adolescents with access to firearms. Add all this together and you get some idea of the flavor of the show. Archer is very much in the spirit of the original Williams Street adult swim cartoons, but is never merely derivative of them. Which of course is exactly what you'd expect, given that this show is produced by Adam Reed, whose previous producing and directing credits include both Sealab 2021 and Frisky Dingo. Indeed, Reed's voice credits go all the way back to the original Space Ghost Coast to Coast.

But while a similar sense of humor can be found throughout, Archer definitely has a flair all of its own. Visually it has kind of a pseudo-realist "ligne claire" (clear line) style that matches perfectly with the creatively anachronistic world the characters inhabit. Cell phones and other contemporary technologies may abound, but jet-age fashions still prevail, and the KGB and the Soviet Union remain major adversaries.

The cartoon itself is brilliant, demented, twisted, and hysterical. My problem w/ the dvd release is that it is marketed as having an "unaired episode" of archer. Guess what it is? It's a screaming Dinosaur in place of Archer. Not cool to do to the die hard fans who shell out good money to support physical copies in this day and age. No commentaries either? And the Archersaurus is screaming over a previously aired episode, btw. In a nutshell - buy it for the cartoon , not the extra content.

Adam Reed has an impressive resume. With each series he has gotten better at his craft and drawn a bigger following. Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Sealab 2021, Frisky Dingo. Watch some of those in order and then the extraordinary (ultra-raunchy) humor and overall quality of "Archer" won't surprise you much. The animation and production values are better. The setting ("James Bond meets Arrested Development," says Reed) is better. The stories are better (and funnier, oh are they funnier).

But none of that matters. What matters is the way the characters are hilariously brought to life through the exceptional dialog and voice acting, much of which is ad-libbed. The timing, so important to...("to what?" "First of all...") to comedy, borders on miraculous.

Never mind, forget all that pedantic nonsense. This is simply the funniest damn show I have ever seen, and if you are 18 or older you must buy it now. Go!

I love Archer, it's one of the funniest shows on TV. I was really excited about getting the DVD because of the "previously unaired pilot" and behind the scenes material. If those are your main reasons for purchasing the DVDs, skip it. The "pilot" is just an episode with Archer replaced with a dinosaur, which is funny for about thirty seconds but goes on for an entire episode. The behind the scenes stuff has some interesting concept art in it, but most of the actual information isn't even narrated - it's printed on the screen in letters too small to be read from across the room on my 48 inch HD TV. I'm still happy with my purchase of the discs because the actual show is so good, but PLEASE Archer people, do better than this on the next release!

I only rated this set a 4 out of 5 because I'm reviewing the DVD set, NOT the show itself. The show itself is just plain perfect. It has a target audience, a target feel, and it delivers perfectly. I have 2 favorite animated shows, Archer and Futurama. And while Futurama is definitely more family friendly than Archer, it features the same sort of goofy characters, and is good mainly due to the character interactions. Neither will win an animation award, nor should they. Futurama and Archer both have 2 of the funniest voice actors working today - Futurama has John Di Maggio, Archer has H. Jon Benjamin. Both of these guys can make you laugh reading an encyclopedia, just by how they use their voices. And that's what makes Archer shine - the voice actors.

The quick, ridiculously hilarious verbal sparring in Archer is what sets it apart from other shows. You watch an episode of archer, then go watch any animated show in Fox's lineup, and you'll fall asleep, they seem so slow. Archer, in some ways, reminds me of vintage Monty Python. Quick witted and hilarious, but often cerebral humor. It's adult humor, and doesn't even pretend to be anything but. The writing, timing, and presentation are just absolutely perfect. Some have compared this to Get Smart, and I find that comparison quite apt. If Get Smart were to be made today, it would be Archer. And that is High praise indeed.

As for the DVD set... It unfortunately falls flat on deliverance. Of course the shows look good, and it's great to have them at the ready, but in this day and age, one expects more extras. I'd have loved to have seen some of the recording sessions. I love watching these actors do the voices.
