Season 9 of Archer is landing on FXX in the spring. The cable net said today that Archer: Danger Island will shove off at 10 PM Wendesday, April 25.

This season of the animated spy comedy finds Sterling Archer (H. Jon Benjamin) as a semi-functioning alcoholic seaplane pilot — a lush on the lush South Pacific island of Mitimotu. It’s 1939, and while the rest of the world is concerned about the looming Second World War, Archer is concerned only with who’s buying his next drink. Along with his trusty co-pilot/sidekick Pam (Amber Nash), Archer must navigate quicksand, cannibals, super-intelligent monkeys, poison darts and pirates in this dangerous and mysterious land.

Jessica Walter plays Archer’s acid-tongued mother and hotel owner; Aisha Tyler is Princess Lanaluakalani, island royalty and local revolutionary; Judy Greer is the abandoned heiress Charlotte Vandertunt; Chris Parnell is Siegbert Fuchsthe, an obvious German spy posing as a businessman; Adam Reed as the impeccably uniformed French Capitaine Reynaud; and Lucky Yates plaus the audacious scarlet macaw Crackers.

So Archer is still in a coma and this is another dream?

Ugh, was hoping they'd drop that after one season. Doubt they'll drop it partway through either.

Well, Season 9 was ok I guess (Whole thing is on Netflix now).

Looks like Season 10 is going to be an Alien/sci-fi parody. So still no sign of the coma ending.

I thought Danger Island was quite poor to be honest. If it was the first series of a new show, there would be a chance I wouldn't watch the subsequent series.

Still better than Archer Vice though :dread:

I'm really enjoying Danger Island, definitely moreso than the last season. I found it helps to not think of the show as one series anymore, but sort of like an American Horror Story setup.

EDIT: Also, Vice was the worst thing they've done. They were clearly bored of the spy storyline but didn't know how to escape it yet.

Vice completely killed my interest in Archer. Loved it before that and couldn't get back into the series after it.

I thought Vice would be awesome as it seemed like such a perfect fit but I don't think I ever finished it.

I quite liked Archer Vice, I thought it was better than the 4 seasons that have followed.

You know what, this is actually really good. It doesn't have the laugh ratio of the earlier sessions but it's a great Indiana Jones/Fantasy Island adventure tale. The constantly repeating catchphrases are a bit annoying, but it looks gorgeous and the story is a ripping yarn indeed.

It even goes a bit spaceship-Nazi/Wolfenstein towards the end!

The quality of this season, combined with the teaser for the next, actually has me hyped to see what they do with season 10, an unlikely position to be in after seasons 5-7.

8/10

I've actually enjoyed every season of Archer I've seen (1-8), obviously the quality has dipped somewhat after s4 but it still makes me laugh out loud several times per episode which is fairly good going for a US comedy show.
