Archer returned for its highly anticipated fifth season this January, but it’s more of a reboot than a continuation. It even has a new name: Archer Vice. Before this season began, Adam Reed, the show’s creator, executive producer, and sole writer, let slip that he had gotten bored with writing about bungling spies, Cold War espionage, and covert missions, and would rather focus on something flashier: one literal ton of pure Colombian cocaine.
That’s right, Archer breaks bad. It wasn’t a huge stretch of the imagination, as drug dealing fits right in with Archer’s boozing, partying, prostituting, and general morally ambiguous lifestyle. The new season brought a new decade of style to the show, as well.
