One day, when the Statue of Liberty has been replaced by a giant Funko Pop; when big-headed, black-eyed figures feature in all our religious iconography; when these vinyl toys are somehow made legally available to hold public office, remember this: the beginning of the end came on November 25, 2021, when an enormous …Read more...

Archer Threatens His Fellow Nerds and Fights Climate Change in an Explosive Season 12 Trailer

Let us put away all thoughts of the “coma seasons” of Archer, which were only intermittently fun—season eight’s retro private-eye Dreamland had some good moments, but season 10's 1999 got lost in space rather quickly.
