Let's see how this works. And where the hell did they get all that coke?
670147, This is a hilarious way to take a break from Isis
Posted by Hitokiri, Mon Jan-13-14 10:37 PM
I can't wait to see how this all unfolds.
670154, The montage may be the best thing they ever did. Certainly top 5
Posted by mrhood75, Tue Jan-14-14 01:51 AM
670156, that montage was my everything.
Posted by Mic_Specialist, Tue Jan-14-14 02:18 AM
670159, Yeah. That was amazing.
Posted by SoulHonky, Tue Jan-14-14 02:24 AM
I'm hoping someone breaks it down because I'm sure there are a ton of references in there that flew over my head. Even still, it was hilarious. The interrogation scene was also pretty great too.
670199, That was more than a montage. That's a preview of the season.
Posted by PlanetInfinite, Tue Jan-14-14 10:28 AM
I can't wait.

i'm out.
670234, Yeah, I just saw that. And honestly I gotta say...
Posted by mrhood75, Tue Jan-14-14 12:55 PM
...that I think it would have been more awesome it wasn't the actual preview. Not that I don't like that the show is going in a new direction, but the idea of them creating a fake montage where Cheryl is a country singer is more hilarious than like nine more episodes with Cheryl as a country singer.

But I'm still hyped. I know they'll pull it off.
670155, Fantastic way to reboot
Posted by mrshow, Tue Jan-14-14 01:57 AM
Im way more excited for the season now.
670160, of course thats where she is when her water breaks.

First-time watcher, enjoyed it

I'm lofty. Feel free to stay lost in your feelings.
670202, You've gotta watch the whole thing
Posted by Hitokiri, Tue Jan-14-14 10:41 AM
Not in like a Game of Thrones way where the story line is all complicated and shit, but in the "goddamn this show is funny!" way.
Plus there's a whole bunch of running gags.


But if you were gonna just jump in some place, I guess the reboot is a good a place as you could choose.
670205, I'm jealous b/c now he gets to discover how awesome Pam is
Posted by magilla vanilla, Tue Jan-14-14 10:46 AM
But yes, co-sign- it's an incredible show all the way through.
670207, I need to see her get her skrimps on again
Posted by Ray_Snill, Tue Jan-14-14 11:06 AM
can't wait to see her back in the fight club

670213, Congratz, you've made an excellent choice
Posted by BigReg, Tue Jan-14-14 11:45 AM
If you've got some spare time I would try to catch up simply because it will help you get some of the later referenced jokes (and Archer's a VERY easy and quick show to watch).
670216, yes I was dying
Posted by RobOne4, Tue Jan-14-14 11:55 AM
but yeah netflix now. Get your binge on.
670233, It was great, but it's like the 15th most awesome thing Pam...
Posted by mrhood75, Tue Jan-14-14 12:52 PM
...does in the series. And that's not me seeing it wasn't funny, but me saying that Pam is one of the great animated characters of the '00s and that you really should watch the whole series.

NetFlix instant. It's all there. You can smash through it like its nothing.
670278, Pam might be one of the GOAT female characters in TV history
Posted by Marauder21, Tue Jan-14-14 03:47 PM
670279, Yeah, her and Lana. I was hedging up there because I thought...
Posted by mrhood75, Tue Jan-14-14 04:08 PM
...there was the potential to blow it off as hyperbole if I went there. But yeah, it's true.
670281, Naw fam, You can say it. Pam and Lana are amazing
Posted by JiggysMyDayJob, Tue Jan-14-14 05:06 PM
Skinny Pam is going to be a problem this season. I can't wait for the Bandit and the Tiger.

I mean Archer has a fucking TIGER!!
670369, They actually do an absurd amount of world-building
Posted by mrshow, Wed Jan-15-14 05:08 PM
The gay character Ray started as a throw-away gag but now he's one of my fav characters on the whole show.
670378, I caught that too.
Posted by Anfernee, Wed Jan-15-14 06:49 PM
I had to rewind to see if it was what I really saw.

Shit was so quick, but awesome.
670259, Pretty pedestrian up until the end
Posted by jigga, Tue Jan-14-14 02:23 PM
Looks like the rest of the season is set up for another win streak tho
670274, Holeee shit!
Posted by gmltheone, Tue Jan-14-14 03:20 PM
Cheryl/carol sploshing after getting tased was fantastic.

And them all rolling over on each other for immunity was pretty funny.

And yes, where did they get all that cocaine. LOL
Same as it ever was!
670301, Avclub has a great interview with Adam Reed explaining WTF happened

Serious spoilers for the first ep, very minor spoilers for the future (they discuss a minor Pam visual gag you might have caught in the montage)

670341, i reflexively made a noise at this part
Posted by Selah, Wed Jan-15-14 12:18 PM
"I don’t know if they told you: We actually made a real country album to go along with this season. That was really fun to work on, and we got the actual real-life Kenny Loggins to sing on the album. He’s doing a duet of a country version of “Danger Zone” with Cherlene."

i must need have to want this. now.

673768, K-Log, this episode was great. Oh, and Swipe
Posted by Innocent Criminal, Tue Mar-04-14 01:17 AM
EDIT: K-Log discusses his role on the episode


Rev up your engines! Archer is heading into the Danger Zone on Monday's episode.

When the gang decides to throw Lana (Aisha Tyler) a baby shower, Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) decides that he's going to get her the best gift imaginable: a private performance by Kenny Loggins, who makes a cameo in the episode - in cartoon form, of course.

"I'm a total badass in this episode and it's fun," Loggins told reporters on a conference call last week. "Archer's been referring to 'Danger Zone' for a quite a while ... So I think they just finally went, 'Well, we've gone so far with this joke, we have to take it all the way.'"

Is the Archer Season 5 reboot working?

And take it all the way they do. When Archer and Pam (Amber Nash) encounter the legendary singer (who's now going by "K-Log"), they discover he's more narcissistic and jaded than they would have hoped. "I laughed out loud," Loggins said of his reaction to his egotistical alter ego. "I thought, this is great. ... I was hoping that they'd take it out of the norm, and they sure did."

Though Loggins did all of his voice work for "Baby Shower" over the phone and never met any of the show's other cast members in person, he did have a hand in creating the animated representation of himself. "There were about four different versions of me as a cartoon that they had wanted to run by me to see which one I liked the best, and the one that they used is sort of a composite of three different versions of K-Log," he explains. "They wanted a '80s version, and every shell that they sent me was a variation of the '80s Kenny Loggins because they just felt that would be the most recognizable, and I have to agree."

Regarding the final drawing, Loggins adds: "I thought I looked a little bit like a terrorist. I kept saying, 'Can we push it a little bit more towards the way I actually looked?' And they said, 'Well, we think it is.' And I went, 'OK, well let's work with that then.'"

2014 Oscars: Top Moments

Loggins said he's been a huge fan of the FX cartoon for years, ever since his oldest son introduced him to it. ("I was surprised when they decided to go into the cocaine business," he says of the current season.) And it was his son who spearheaded Loggins' cameo in the first place.

"He's been writing letters to the Archer team at FX now for a couple years, saying, 'When are you going to put my dad on the show?'" Loggins said.

Monday's episode also features Loggins and "Cherlene" (the country singer alter ego of Cheryl) performing a country version of "Danger Zone" - the quality of which was surprising even to Loggins himself. "I didn't believe that they could turn 'Danger Zone' into a country song, which makes it even funnier," he says. "That's the last song of my repertoire that you'd expect to be turned into a country song." (Though Judy Greer voices Cheryl, singer Jessy Lynn Martens handles Cherlene's vocal work.)

The cover version is available on Cherlene's self-titled debut album, which was released on iTunes this week. But will Loggins fans ever get to hear the country rendition at one of his shows? "You never know," he teases. "Stranger things have happened. I could see me doing a duet with her. It'd be interesting to do an animated version of Cherlene singing her part and I would play the video and sing live with that."

Archer airs Mondays at 10/9c on FX.

Posted by araQual, Thu Apr-24-14 05:41 AM
LOL @ Krieger implanting a STICKER into her brain. so glad he got added to the opening credits this season cos he's been KILLIN every scene he's in for a good long while now. good way to bring it back around to Isis for nxt season.

i may've missed the poast but...we all know that was Christian Slater right? as "Slater"? lol. playin opposite Gary Cole. the voice casting is so money on this show.
