Well after 14 years of crazy espionage, dysfunctional co-workers and friends, open family issues, and 3 seasons of offbeat adventures this Wednesday, we are going to say goodbye to the world’s greatest spy Sterling Archer, and everyone else at the International Secret Intelligence Service.
Archer was created by Adam Reed and premiered on FX in September 2009. The first season of Archer was nothing like that was on TV in 2009 and it became a hit. The crazy over-the-top cast of characters who are voiced by one of the best cast of voice actors in a long time. H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, Chris Parnell, Lucky Yates, and the late Jessica Walter brought to life the world of Archer to us by voicing Archer, Lana, Cheryl/Carol, Pam, Cyrill, Krieger, and Malory; hell even Reed voice Gillette for a while before being recast.
Over the year we have seen the show go all over the place and at times go a bit dark and off the rails, but at the end, the episodes that end on a funny, odd, dark comedy note often reflect what’s going on in the at the time of the episode was aired.
Throughout 14 seasons, Archer has won awards including four Primetime Emmy Awards and four Critics Choice Awards, became a part of modern-day pop culture, introduced the world to a world of crazy nonsense, gave us two of the best friends that ever graced our TV and they are Pam and Cheryl/Carol and let us not forget “phrasing”.
Thanks, Archer for the 14 years of nonstop craziness in a world we might never see in our lives but kind of wish we weren’t in, to begin with.
