Archer Season 5 does not get underway until January. But to get fans of this animated hit in the mood for this spy's hilariously ridiculous actions, FX has released an extended promo for the series, one that imagines Archer like Maverick from Top Gun. He's playing volleyball. He's riding a motorcycle. He's exchanging an awesome high-five on the runway. He's being all-around awesome. In his head, that is.

Those fans who came to the "Archer" San Diego Comic-Con panel to hear discussion about "Archer" were likely sorely disappointed. Barring a satellite appearance from Sterling Archer himself and a quick Isis training video that revealed more about Pam than Isis as a corporation, much of the panel was spent with the cast just goofing off and talking about penises and anal sex. But that might have been the most "Archer" part of the panel, as the cast really does embody the characters they portray in the FX animated comedy. In previous years, the "Archer" panel has usually shown a new episode from the upcoming season. But apparently that was impossible for 2013. "This season is so explosive we can't show you anything and instead we just underwhelmed the f*** out of you for an hour," Aisha Tyler explains at the end of the panel. At least the cast did a panel read where each... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/07/archer-panel-at-comic-con-2013-no-episode-but-plenty-of-laughs.html
It took me a very long time, but I finally caught up with the latest season of Archer this week. As such, I have the show on the brain, and my internal monologue constantly sounds like H. Jon Benjamin. Which is awesome. READ MORE...
FX is bringing its usual suspects to San Diego Comic-Con this year. Returning fan-favorites "Wilfred," "Archer," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and "Sons of Anarchy" will be having panels and booth signings throughout the four-day event.

Both "Wilfred" and "It's Always Sunny" will premiere new episodes, while "Archer" and "Sons of Anarchy" are showing first-look clips and footage. Here's the full information released by FX about the network's Comic-Con presence: Thursday, July 18 "WILFRED" FOX Booth Signing - 1:00-2:00pm Panel - 4:00-5:00pm: Screening and Q&A: Elijah Wood stars as "Ryan," a young man struggling unsuccessfully to make his way in the world until he forms a unique friendship with "Wilfred," his neighbor's canine pet, played by Jason Gann, who co-created and starred in the Australian version of Wilfred in 2007.... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2013/07/comic-con-fx-bringing-sons-of-anarchy-archer-its-always-sunny-wilfred.html

Archer 's fourth season concluded last night with the ISIS gang trying to save the world from a mad man in the Bermuda Triangle. Just another day on the job. Thwarting apocalypse in exotic locales has become the specialty of Sterling Archer and his band of inept secret agents. In an effort to find out everywhere they've been and exactly who went, we went back through 48 episodes and assembled this list: Berlin "Job Offer" (Season 1, Episode 9), when we see a flashback of Archer failing to help Barry, leading to two steel rods and sixteen titanium screws having to be placed in Barry's leg. Bermuda Triangle "Sea Tunt, Parts I and II" (Season 4, Episodes 12 and 13), when Archer, Cyril, Lana, Malory, Pam, Ray, and Cheryl go off in search of a misplaced nuclear warhead. http://www.vulture.com/2013/04/archer-all-the-countries-characters-have-been-to.html
After Frisky Dingo's brief Mr. Ford cameo, Adam Reed finally got to do his big crossover episode with Sealab 2021 during tonight's " Sea Tunt: Part 2 ". So how did Jon Hamm do in filling the shoes as the voice of Captain Murphy? Murphy, like many villains in the Archer-universe, was hardly the most dangerous man of the night. Even as the captain threatened to unload nerve gas missiles against the eastern seaboard, it was Randy Magnum and his 3.5 gallons of booze that really got in the way. That and Krieger's cocaine-induced gun mods. Hamm's Murphy, despite holding a knife to Lana's neck, certainly redeemed himself when it was revealed he merely had a psychotic breakdown, lacked any actual missiles, and even helped the ISIS plan their escape Sea Lab. But honestly Hamm never quite captured the ridiculousness that was the real Captain Murphy . Nor did he really sound like himself. Luckily, there was some good entertainment back on board the biodiesel floating hotel room, where Malory raided Pam's TEOTWAWKI bug out bag. Back down in Sealab, the big reveal of the season, of course, was that Ray looked gayer without a mustache Lana was pregnant. Even bigger? The fact that Archer was selfless enough to give up his SCUBA gear to the obvious weakest swimmer. Maybe I just wasn't a big enough Sealab 2021 fan, but I definitely prefer last season's space to this season's sea. Though I gotta tell you, poor Ray probably equally hates both. Until next season, I'll leave you with my favorite Archer quotes as I enjoy the rest of my Kentucky Moon Bellini: Something, something danger zone. Great, the world's first DSVUI. Who are you, Earl Butz? You say that like it's a bad thing...

H. Jon Benjamin may not actually be an international super agent playboy with narcissistic personality disorder, but he sure knows how to sound like one on FX's animated cult favorite "Archer."The comedian fielded questions during a conference call to promote the show's ongoing fourth season, which continues tonight with a strong episode involving Archer reluctantly bonding with his new stepfather, and addressed what it's like to be the voice of both Sterling Archer and "Bob's Burgers" patriarch Bob Belcher. Highlights of the call follow:How do fans react when they realize you look nothing like Archer?H. Jon Benjamin: There's been a bunch of people who have not done well to disguise their disappointment.
