Really glad to see this show is back on track. Some of the last season was interesting, but interesting in the "let's drive the bus off the cliff to see what happens" way.

Totally jazzed for this. I already saw the episode, they showed it at Comic-Con back in July. Allegedly though, it's been altered a bit due to the fact they won't be using the name "ISIS" anymore.

Hoping it's better then last season, although the last few episodes finally felt like Archer again.

I was wondering how they were planning to respond to that. I figured some tweaks were in order so not surprised to hear this.

Maybe this show is past its prime? This was kind of a flat start to the season, though it did reset the status quo if you discount the baby.

I really liked it, felt like Archer of old. Loved the place being exactly the same (almost) and the simulation of Brett's blood Also really liked Milton the robot.

It was six months since I saw the episode, so I'm not gonna remember every detail. But the bit where the workers were blatantly rolling out the ISIS logo really seemed tacked on and would have been something I'd remember, so I think that was the change to the episode.

at Archer explaining the history - with the Bad News Bears in Japan and the Six Million Dollar man episode with the same plot.

Cheryl's response to "But why would you do this?!" was awesome. Really, the new/old office stuff was the best part of a rather flat start. Very glad to have Archer back though!

Re: Archer (FX) - Season 6 Thread - Premieres 1/8/15

So I was watching this episode, and I caught something I had missed for five seasons.

In the opening credits, you see various blueprints behind the silhouettes of the characters, right? I was paying particular attention to them for some reason, and I asked myself... "Hey! Isn't that Andy Griffith's 'Vulture' spaceship from the old 'Salvage One' show?"

Sure enough, after a little googling... it is! There are also brief blueprint snippets of the old 'Airwolf' helicopter, too.

At the end of the story, Mengele was stopped but most of the boy clones were still alive.

I thought this last episode was fantastic. Return of Conway was great (helped that I happened to watch the first few episodes of Season 1 earlier in the week), and I loved all the fight sequences. Archer turning himself in to a verb, Archerize

Col. Lando Calrissiano

Krieger's bear robot

Thank you Mr. Bearjangles!

Ramping (or should I say rampaging?) back up to standards with this episode. There is one thing that bugged me though -- Cheryl didn't seem to get any sexual gratification from Mallory choking her. That had been a long running gag.

I noticed the choking thing also, I was expecting carol to say something when it was done.

Yeah, same here about the choking. Maybe just because it was Mallory.

That is what would have made the joke so much better!

I'm glad others noticed it. I felt awkward pointing out the fact that they missed a choke sex punchline.

Is it Cheryl or Carol now?

This one was just ok for me; avalanche effects were cool, but the plot wasn't anything great this time around.

Loved Kreiger's comment in the Jacuzzi - "don't make any movements, particularly bowel."

Great seeing Barry back. Pam's sister was decent, but thought that whole thing would be a little funnier.
