Archer is from the creators of Frisky Dingo and Sealab 2021, two hilariously raunchy [adult swim] shows. Not to mention, Archer is on FX. Doesn't that tell you something? Hmm...let's see...Archer's not suitable for children? You've got it. But for older teens, this show is awesome. The titular character, who has an unflattering codename ("Duchess") is a jerk by day and a spy/woman-catcher by night. His mother is his boss and, like everyone else around him, always bickers at his sharp comments about...everything. The frequent verbal clashes are hilarious, but sometimes they can contain strong language ("f**k" and "c**t" are bleeped, but since this is the FX network, nothing else is). There's also some animated sex and nudity, but it's not as graphic as some other shows. Quite a bit of innuendos are exchanged, some of them graphic. The violence is not as bad as Frisky Dingo (no blood splattering everywhere), but bullet holes can sometimes be seen. Overall, what Frisky Dingo and Sealab 2021 did for superheroes, Archer does for James Bond. And that's exactly what I wanted. Thanks, FX, for making a show that isn't a drama.

Vey Good. Very Funny. Very Likeable.

This show is great, but has some very raunchy material. Sh*t is said quite often, as well as other swears. Sex is often, pretty graphic, but no genitalia is shown. Violence in every episode. Drinking often too.

Great show

Its funny and very entertaining. I would say people who are children or not mature should not watch this, but for everyone else its a damn good show.

Great show for teens and young adults

Anyone who is under the age of 15 will probably not understand the more mature humor that this show contains. It also has a copious amount of violence, drugs, sex (though not overly explicit) and other adult themes. Otherwise, it is a pretty awesome show with likeable characters and a perfectly-sized, 21-minute dose of action, adventure, drama and general hilarity.

Best show on FX, but not for high schoolers and under

Bloody,profane,and darkly hilarious. Their are no positive role models or messages and it's just for comedy. Dark,crude,violent and most of all funny. Arrested development meets James bond in a workplace comedy setting.

Great show, for mature teens and adults.

This is a very funny show, one of the best animated comedies I've ever seen. There was barely a time where I wasn't laughing. That being said, this show can get pretty inappropriate. Almost every episode contains references to sex, and the sexual dialogue can get pretty explicit. The language in general is pretty bad, with sh*t, a*s and b*tch in almost every other sentence. There isn't much violence, and even when there is, it's not that bad.

Archer rated TV-MP for Master Plan. Perfect spy spoof.

It may have violence, strong language, and mild drinking of alcohol or tequila, but ISIS agent Sterling Malory Archer gets my perfect approval when it comes to spy parodies of Mission: Impossibe: The Quadrilogy and The James Bond Quad-Quintilogy. Okay Quadrilogy and Quad-Quintilogy are not real terms. But other than THAT, Archer is so great, it makes me laugh so hard, I want to just commit suicide by falling out of an open window. It's like ''H. Jon Benjamin, meet FX.'' It's SO incredible. It may be created by Frisky Dingo and Sealab 2021's Adam Reed, but it rocks!

FX did the right thing putting this show on their channel. This show is one of the reasons why I even watch FX. It's very funny and all the characters have their own kind of humor. It does have a lot of sexual references in it and it does show some of the characters in sexual poses, implying they had sex, and it does show a lot of partial nudity in it. The language is very strong and the violence isn't really bad, but still pretty violent for a cartoon show. Reccommend this to anyone who loves spy type shows and very raunchy cartoon shows
