'Archer' Season 2 DVD: Archer pays tribute to the troops

Soon you'll have more of everyone's favorite super spy, Sterling Archer, at your fingertips. Not in a gross way, sickos -- in the Season 2 DVD and Blu-ray of "Archer," which comes out Dec. 27.To prepare you for the awesomeness that awaits inside those discs, Zap2it has obtained a super-secret exclusive clip from one of the set's special features, "Semper Fi." Archer, proving that he's not really that bad of a dude, totally gives a shout out to the troops when it's requested. Obviously, he does it in his own Archer way, which includes plenty of inappropriate comments and indirect insults toward our hero soldier in question.The DVD and Blu-ray set also includes features like "Ask Archer," "Archersaurus," "Self Extinction," "L'espoin Mal Fait" and "ISIS Invades Comic-con." It also has all 13 episodes from Season 2, but we thought that was kind of self-explanatory. Check out the clip above!...

Archer Cast at Comic-Con: A Press Room Photo Diary

In fact, except for "Family Guy," not one animated series submitted in that category. Instead, they're all in the outstanding animated series category.Why? Well, there's a good reason for that, something we touched on in our post from a few weeks ago about shows that never got the right kind of Emmy love, and it's a pretty simple one: Animated shows rarely get nominated -- and they never, ever win -- when up against live-action shows.Until 2009, when "Family Guy" broke through and got an outstanding comedy series nomination, almost 50 years had passed since...
