‘Tis the season… for TV DivaGal to get a boatload of DVDs featuring hot new shows for 2010!
I had already gotten a sneak peek of Archer last summer.
Focusing on an egotistical superspy who’s more into bagging chicks than criminals, this animated series ain’t your kids’ cartoon. So why should TV DivaGals watch?
1. It’s As Raunchy as a Mother*&#^@@#! Resident spy Sterling Archer is crude, rude and hilarious! His ex-girlfriend Lana dumped him because he tried to get it on with her while talking on the phone, to his mom!, who just happens to be their tyrannical boss at the International Secret Intelligence Agency (ISIS). Archer uses his work expense accounts to finance his expensive black sweater collection, berates his long-suffering butler daily and treats most of the women in his life like disposable razors. And yet, somehow, he still comes across as a charming rogue! Damn that smooth criminal voice of his (courtesy of series star H. Jon Benjamin).
2. Lana Is a Bad ass! Fellow secret agent Lana Kane carries pretty big guns, and isn’t afraid to use them when she needs to keep her new boyfriend, mousy ISIS accountant Cyril Figgis (played by TV DivaGal fave Chris Parnell) in line. Girlfriend also loves to dig in to her stir-fry Fridays. She got curves in all the right places.
3. Boys Dig It. Had my friend Jens visiting from Germany when my Archer DVD arrived. He stayed glued to the TV sets for two hours watching the first five episodes. Yep, if you can laugh alongside with your boyfriend on this series, he’ll think you’re the coolest girl ever!
Catch Archer beginning Thursday, Jan. 14 at 10 p.m. on FX.
