Recommended Posts

Deep in space, Archer and the crew encounter a terrifying cosmic beast; even deeper, they encounter a self-aggrandizing life coach.

Oh, Carol is called Cheryl again. And still goes by both.

"YOU'RE NOT MY SPACE SUPERVISOR!"

This was an odd episode, it's like the entire plot happened in the last five minutes. I pegged Captain Price being responsible for her crew dying. But not so...brutally.

Ray is still useless.

Another fun episode, with more Cheryl/Carol being Cheryl/Carol . . . delightfully insane. Also, a few jokes with the word "space" crammed in there. I still found it funny.

Not as much as Cyril, though. I bet that cracked captain barely had to convince him to commit suicide. Once again: Chris Parnell is so good at voicing pathetic men.

Krieger trying to create offspring . . . that's "on brand." Remember, Crackers probably didn't get to do any mad science stuff next season. Krieger Head isn't the anime bride, but it's a step in the right direction.

Didn't see the twist coming, where the crew didn't have to go through bullshit to escape. And, of course, Archer doesn't record Glenda's last words. She was a cannibal, so I guess he gets a pass this once.

Cheryl/Carol was the highlight of the episode with her brand of crazy.   I would LOVE to see Cheryl and Malory be space pirates.  That would actually be fun.   Cheryl pros and cons list on if she should try to save the gang was funny.

Yeah Captain Price bring the cause of her crew’s death was kind of obvious but I kinda liked how pretentious she was and how easily she brainwashed Cyril.  

Archer is s bit of a dick for not taping price’s big speech but that is so him and not really surprising either.

I really liked this episode. Maybe 3 is the magic number, the season has definitely improved starting with episode 3 even if I didn't fall in love with that episode.

Cheryl/Carol was great. She's not high on my list except for crazy country singer Cheryl but, so far she's been the highlight of the season.

I normally love Pam, Coked up Pam  Danger Island Pam and, Archer Noir Pam have been highlights of those seasons. However, I'm not digging Rock Alien Pam at all.

Still want more Ray but, this episode was a good start.

Archer not taping the Prices last speech was so dickish, but...she DID eat people. 

That episode had legitimately creepy moments, and while I saw most everything coming (once great captain finding the heroes and being shown to be evil is a pretty common trope) it was still a fun ride. 

Cyril is so easy to convince to kill himself, poor sad sack Cyril.

He was probably the closest to dying here than in the entire series up to this point.

I really wish that Captain Price had been voiced by Carrie Brownstein who was Dr. Sklodowska in Drastic Voyage.

Chris Parnell has many different voice acting gigs. I swear he is everywhere and I am surprised by where I find him. Also, I agree he does seem to be good at voicing pathetic men. Jerry from Rick and Morty is a prime example.

Heh. "I ate my crewmembers. If that is shocking to you, so be it."

So...when we first saw the captain, was I the only one who thought it was Xander Crews from frisky dingo?

Lana usually gets the better of Archer, but she didn't have anything glib to say when Archer reminded her that the Captain killed and ate the crew. 

Ray has cake somehow so he isn't as useless as Cyril.

Not really . . . but I can see how that connection could be made.

”Ronnie, is that your rape wig?” “Is one of them.”
