Archer Review: "El Secuestro"

The Archer writing staff deserves a special comedy Emmy just for the name Cornelius Tunt. And Pam's fight club background just makes a great character greater. For the curious, Googling phrases from Pam's back tattoo revealed that it's an excerpt from Lord Byron's 1815 poem, The Destruction of Sennacherib: For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast,
And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed;
And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill,
And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still! And there lay the steed with his nostril all wide,
But through it there rolled not the breath of his pride;
And the foam of his gasping lay white on the turf,
And cold as the spray of the rock-beating surf. Biblically badass, right? The full poem is here.
