Secret Agents + Stir Fridays = Just the Tip


If Archer maintains being half as funny as its pilot, it’s gonna be perma-locked into my Tivo. Created by Adam Reed of Sealab 2021 fame, the show follows the exploits of the self-absorbed, narcisistic secret agent Sterling Archer who seems to survive on a shaky diet of lascivious ignorance and nepotism alone (his mom is the chief). Featuring Jon Benjamin — who voices a bunch of unmissable shows on Adult Swim (Satan on Lucy: The Daughter of the Devil, the coach in Home Movies, Mothmonsterman and various creatures on Aqua Teen Hungerforce…you get the picture) — Archer also hinges on the talents of the awesome Aisha Tyler (where’s she been?) and Chris Parnell. If you got 20 minutes to kill, don’t miss it.
