Okay, get this - everything here - is about me, what I'm feeling and thinking at the time I write it. I may not always be right, but if I wrote it here, it was heavy on my mind and well, there you go! So - because I'm 47, -(4 years later - 51)- growing, changing, living, learning, I may look back a year or two from now and feel differently about what I wrote, so - if I make it to the big time, end up on a talk show, Oprah's or Larry King, don't be pulling from this blog, because I'm going through menopause right now, ain't no telling what I might say, okay? Cool... ciao!

Archer & Lana

What is it? 

An incredible spoof or satire of the spy world in cartoon surrounding the CIA and KGB! Simply put, it's a rip roaring laugh a minute reason to watch a cartoon! Oh my goodness, I love it - I shouldn't I know, but I do. This is what says about it...  

"...At ISIS, an international spy agency, global crises are merely opportunities for its highly trained employees to confuse, undermine, betray and royally screw each other.-"

*Sigh* Yeah... that's pretty much it really, and while they're at it, you cannot help but laugh at the things that happen and the things they say to each other. I must admit, what caught my eye after watching a few episodes is that the primary couple is interracial! And if you know me, you know that's what I write!

Yep, that's them to the left - Sterling Archer (white man) and Lana Kane (black woman)! They are back and forth arguing, loving each other, breaking up - going for other lovers and then back again. Don't forget it's a satire cartoon but a well written one. I first encountered it while living in England - it was on Netflix and I'd watched pretty much all else I was interested in - and I kept seeing Archer and thought - what the heck, I'll give it a go!

Ha! Now, I'm looking to purchase ALL 5 seasons of it to watch over again - yes I will do the rerun because it's that funny! I don't want to like it, but I do - I just dooo! It's adult humor so the kids need to be in bed when you give it ago. Bad language and sexually explicit scenes - but not so much and so bad you can't stand to watch it. *I'm blushing* But I can't help liking it - simply speaking it's my kind of humor on my off days! Oh man the times I've laughed out loud with Sterling Archer going on and on and being stupid, as well brave, crazy - arrogant and full of himself and you won't help but love every moment of it.

Then there is Lana Kane who pretends that she doesn't give two figs for him when all along she's longing and loving him - but she's too much of a tough lady to show it. There are other characters whom I go back and forth from liking to hating and wishing they would go away, LMBO - but they are filler and at times necessary.

Since I've watched all 5 seasons I won't spoil it for those who haven't watched it yet - but it's always enjoyable - well - season 3 was iffy - I wasn't too keen on it, it was shall we say, just kind'ah so-so - if I rated season 3 I would give it 3 stars out of 5 - but the other seasons, 5 for sure - especially the way that season 5 went.

Here's a youtube's best clip scenes...

It stars the following characters from top to bottom - my favorites I put in their photos at the top!

H. Jon Benjamin as Sterling Archer
Aisha Tyler as Lana Kana  

Jessica Walter as Malory Archer
Rest of the cast....

Chris Parnell as the voice of Cyril Figgis
Amber Nash as the voice of Pam Poovey
Judy Greer as the voice of Cheryl Tunt
Adam Reed as the voice of Ray Gillette
Lucky Yates as the voice of Doctor Kriger

If you haven't started watching it yet - then hit it on Netflix and once you're caught up, it's on FX - but it's now concluding the 5th season! Here's to hoping it'll be back for a 6th!
