This Archer show is pretty damn good.

Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

They're drug dealers now. I like that.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

That's when the show started going off the rails for a lot of fans. I found that those themed seasons worked better on second viewings, but I never soured on the series at all.

It was a big change but I think one that was good overall for the show.

Given that the strength of the show is in how its characters relate to each other, the spy concept wasn't that crucial.

I love that season. Might be the last one I watched, actually.

The coma seasons are a skip for me. You could have achieved the same effect, or something very like it, and kept it in continuity. I get that we're not doing Breaking Bad here or anything and the stakes shouldn't matter that much, but there's no consequences to anything that happens in a story in a character's imagination which makes it dull for me.

I found they had their moments.

I enjoyed them more on the second watch and with some time away. No, they aren't as good as the original concept, but they're still entertaining.
