Animated spy spoof will amuse older viewers; not for kids.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Great for adults, too much for kids.

Might be okay for mature teens, but unless one has the ability to distinguish that what the characters are saying needs to not be taken at face value, there can appear to be condoning of racist, homophobic, etc. messages in the show. That’s besides the casual sex, drugs and glamour. Love the hell out of (most of the seasons) if this show, but save it for much later.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
age 11+


I noticed some people saying archer should be 17+ which I think is absurd, I know a 10 year old who has seen archer. Although this 10 year old is mature I think archer should be rated more like 12+
