  • David Hinckley

    Archer is the rare show that's in love with its own wordplay and good enough that this love becomes endearing rather than annoying.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    This spy spoof hits a bull’s-eye with risque snark and one of the best vocal casts assembled for any animated series.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    This wittily raunchy spy spoof from Adam Reed (Sealab 2021, Frisky Dingo) features intentionally stiff cartoon characters led by the title hero.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    I got many more sustained belly laughs out of the show that follows Sunny in an under-the-radar sneak preview.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Based on this preview, though, Archer gives FX something that the drama-heavy channel hasn't enjoyed for awhile--namely, a sharp comedic arrow in its quiver.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    I like Archer because it succeeds where so many of the snarky animated series tend to fail. Reed and his writers and voice actors balance all the pop satire and raunch with a strong sense of the characters.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Archer is a millennial (and very much R-rated) "Get Smart" that acerbically and hilariously plays on our post-9/ll fears that "U.S. government intelligence" might be a grim oxymoron.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    I've seen five Archer episodes--and laughed frequently and loudly at all five.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Heather Havrilesky

    Archer is funny. If you don't agree after the first episode, keep watching. You might try drinking a little coffee or having a doughnut before you tune in, though, because the zingers fly by pretty quickly.

    Salon Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    The first episode is, maybe to grab the young-guy audience, heavier on the sexplay and lighter on the laughs. But two or three episodes in, the characters and dynamics come together, and the show really begins to kill. Literally and figuratively, but mostly figuratively.

    Time Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    With its demented story lines, idiotic characters, out-of-control banter and fantastic send-ups of a spy genre that had seemingly been overspoofed already, Archer is destined to put another feather in the cap of FX.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Rick Porter

    It's fun, but it's best in moderation.

    Zap2it (Inside the Box) Full Review
  • Paige Wiser

    The show is fast, funny and smart, although it stoops a little low for punchlines; I could do without the fat jokes and the cheap shot at Indira Gandhi. But the random humor pays off more often than not.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Suffice to say that Archer will probably appeal to viewers who like their comedy literate, demented and subversive.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    Suffice it to say, keep the kids away, but you will laugh - and feel guilty about it afterward.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    While the show's humor can be raunchy or even cruel, the voice work is pure unruffled deadpan. [18 Jan 2010, p.42]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Though future episodes don't quite measure up to the brilliant pilot, Archer nurtures a collection of recurring themes that pile up and become funnier the more they are referenced through the episodes.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Archer is not for everyone, and certainly not for anyone whose idea of risque is "Get Smart." But do yourself one favor: Don't decide it's not for you until you have watched an entire episode, because you just may find the good outweighs the excessive.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Archer may be crude but it's far more clever than last fall's disappointing "Testees," and "Archer" wins points with its observational humor about modern life and in its mocking of mundane workplace minutiae, such as computer passwords and the lack of security at a spy agency.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    The new series boasts eye-catching animation and dollops of sex and violence but only enough humor to elicit occasional chuckles. If you eliminate the references to sexual perversions, even the smiles are few and far between.
