Can you believe that It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia has been on the air now for nearly 9 years? I can’t even think of one good show FX aired before Always Sunny debuted, but now they have a metric crap ton of high quality shows, from The Americans to everyone’s favorite, sarcastic spy Archer. I do vividly remember however seeing the very first trailer for Always Sunny though – well before the show actually launched – and it was just one of those moments where you somehow know – for a damn fact – that whatever it was you just witnessed, be it a show or movie, is going to be legendary. Kinda like when we all saw the first trailer for the movie Taken. Yeah. So since it’s Monday, and I just came across this stellar Always Sunny montage trailer, I felt what better way to keep the nostalgia train rolling!
I still meet people who have not watched Archer, or maybe a better way to phrase it – I have still met people who haven’t even heard of Archer. Can you believe it? What’s that? You have no idea what show I’m talking about? Yes, it’s a television show; it airs on FX, and the next season is coming in two months this January. If you like sarcasm, voice-overs from Saturday Night Live actors (from when that show was actually good), and James Bond-type spy/secret agent stuff, then Archer is right up your alley. It is absolutely hilarious, and one of my favorites; the next season cannot come soon enough. As a teaser for the upcoming season, FX just released the hilarious music video spoof you see above from the movie Top Gun’s most-memorable soundtrack tune, Danger Zone. This is a must-see, and so is Archer this coming January.
According to the show’s creator, Adam Reed, “Archer” can be described as “James Bond meets Arrested Development”. As a huge fan of both, I can emphatically say that if you haven’t seen this incredibly hilarious show yet, you’re wrong. Since its inception in 2010, Archer has stormed up the ratings charts not only on FX, but on television, and just recently completed its fourth season on the air, with a fifth already signed and on the books. That’s news that makes this guy smile.
