Archer a.k.a funny as heck show

I have to admit i thought archer was going to go downhill with all its cheesy moments and concepts. But to be honest This show deserved its mature rating and should be watched by mature teens 13+ . This show has many sexual humor and partial nudity and sex scenes like in James Bond but at a comical and hilarious level. Also there is crude language Sh*t c**k ass damn, hell, asshole, or using the lords name in vain. also there is bloody violence but used comically and to a extremely sense of the violence be unrealistic but the violence is brutal and gory especially with guns and weapons. Also archer is a womanizer and has a bad role model. But all the other characters have role models. But shows bad role models of ISIS agency and HR related cases. Finally characters drink excessively and used drinking humor in some of the episodes. Overall Mature teens should watch the show with parents or alone 13+ 9.5/10

Fine but pointless for anyone younger to watch this

The thing that makes Archer really good is all of the references it makes to a lot of things only older adults will understand, not sexual or violent things but just older pop culture references, and history etc. However, it's still a good show and I would recommend it, though for younger children it would be better to watch it with them, as it paints all of the drugs and alcohol in quite a positive light. Drugs that show up in the show include LSD injected gummy bears, cocaine (fashioned into plaster and whipped cream ''whipped cocaine''), heroine, weed, etc. Alcohol consumption is constant throughout the show and there is a lot of almost nudity (fully nude but averted via props) although I wouldn't really worry about that too much. Overall if your child is smart and doesn't have access to hard drugs, it shouldn't be an issue, but if they're too young they are unlikely to enjoy it anyway.

Archer-how to react.

Hello. I'm from Australia. I know that Archer exaggerates the male stereotype, and he gets slammed because of it. This is possibly the most real cartoon version of spy cinema that exists. They drink. They swear, not over the top mind you. If your children attend elementary school they will hear worse on a daily basis. I work within a catholic school with autistic students. Much worse is said in the playground. Fun for mature teenager's. If they don't get the jokes don't worry. They will eventually, like watching The Simpsons. Several layers of jokes. If you don't find it amusing, you're either devout to whatever religion you adhere to, or you have no sense of humour. If you chuckle as an adult, that means you are probably human.
