Archer Round Table: "The Double Deuce"
This week's Archer was another solid installment of the FX cult hit. Our staff, as always, has put together a Round Table Q&A discussion of "Double Deuce" to discuss.
Without further delay, we present this week's Archer Round Table:
What was your favorite Archer quote from last night?
Dr. Toboggan: Woodhouse: "1,200 pounds." Archer: "No one is getting killed over however much that is in real money." This just illustrates what a great international spy Archer truly is.
Mark F: Archer: "So you were a servant? Way to progress."
Eric H: Upon hearing Woodhouse might be murdered... "Oh my god... are we out of Bloody Marys?" Or were they Bloody Caesar?
Worse parent: Archer or Malory.
Dr. Toboggan: Malory, no question. Yes, Archer threw his baby in the air to create a diversion, but Malory's negative reinforcement explains a lot. Also, I think we're glossing over the fact that gunfire, in a bar, around a newborn, that can't be good for baby Archer. Surprisingly, I don't have an issue with giving babies alcohol, it's actually how my brother learned to walk.
Mark F: Malory. Archer was considerate enough to try and get the wee baby Shamus away from gunfire but when Shamus was around Archer did include him in everything from sitting at the table with alcohol, sitting on the sink with shaving cream and razor, sitting on the bar with alcohol, and being the diversion and part of a movie reference. Also, Archer let Shamus play with whatever he wanted not to mention the loving way Archer held baby Shamus when answering the door. It reminded me of a mother tiger gently carrying her cub by the collar in her mouth.
Eric H: Sorry guys, I'm giving it to Archer. Malory is great at delegating all aspects of life, including parenting.
Dr. Toboggan: Cheryl. Auto-erotic asphyxiation.
Mark F: Krieger... we didn't even see him this episode and give his track record of ISIS experiments he was probably passed out half dead in the lab for all we know.
Eric H: Archer from a brain aneurysm. You never see those coming.
What did you think of the geezer murder mystery?
Dr. Toboggan: I liked the idea of Archer getting involved because its always great when Archer and Woodhouse interact but I could have done without all the flashbacks. If I see any more Woodhouse flashbacks I want them to be about his rampant drug use and not about his weird gay crush on his army commander.
Mark F: While it wasn't the best episode I guess they did need to explain the history of Woodhouse, Archer, and Malory which did explain a lot... except the eye patch... although now i'm curious to learn at which point did Archer go from hugging Woodhouse to throwing his clothes off the balcony and not letting him sit at the table like people.
Eric H: Most of the flashbacks were fairly boring and really the highlight were the present day aspects. See: Archer kicking the old man off the roof.
Sorry, I have no more love to give today.
Dr. Toboggan: How lazy. Malory ducked out at 2:30 but it only took you until 9:45 to give up, so don't be surprised if you find yourself eating a whole bunch of spiderwebs.
Mark F: Really? Although I guess there's still plenty of time to go hang with the drones who are probably being idiots doing idiot things because they're idiots... wait a minute... wouldn't I be one of those drones?... dang it.
