Man, I saw this when you posted it, but had no clue it was from the creator of Sealab/Frisky Dingo.

What makes this far and away better than Frisky Dingo, and maybe even Sealab is the story writing. Sealab put the cast in positions to progress the batshit crazy dialogue. FD tried to make the stories better, but I think failed. With this show, the stories are very cool, the jokes are as close to as good as Sealab, and the sexual references are absolutely off the wall.

I fear they may have gotten initial low ratings and told they may pull the plug. I have no proof of this other than in episode 10, there were two scenes where people walked into Archer and Chris Parnell's character balls-deep in that French secretary. It may have been a "they are canceling us, why not show anal sex?" moment.

Worst case, Adult Swim will pick it up. It's too good not to.

It's also great to see this show keeping the 934-TXS thing running.

I didn't think I would like this show but I've been watching it through Netflix and I'm pleasantly surprised.

The show was renewed for a second season, according to wikipedia.

Also, "M" is for "Mancy".

I thought the blimp episode was their best, and the ones after that were a little less enjoyable for me. I'm interested to see how the second season pans out.

I missed all but one Season 2 episode. Season 3 has been excellent so far.
