Default 'Archer: The Complete Season Two' - High-Def Digest Review

Nate has reviewed 'Archer: The Complete Season Two.' He says this season is uneven, but this is still the best show on television that you're either not watching...or haven't even heard of. Recommended. Read his review to find out why!

Another example of confusing ratings...2.5 stars - but 'recommended'...Other movies get 3.5 stars and a 'rent it' rating.
For more than 2 years I could trust you guys blind with your ratings and recommendations. Recently - maybe because of added reviewers - it's rather a gamble ....

More to a recommendation than the score on a movie or show itself. 4.5 and 4.0 presentation scores make a recommendation much easier.

Additionally, the overall recommendation does not rely on scores. A 1.0 or a 3.0 can still be a Rent It. A 4.0 can be a Recc, a Highly Recommended, or even a weaker Must Own. so...that doesn't mean a single bad thing about HDD's continued quest to continue to be the most reliable site for this kind of stuff.

While some of the episodes might have been minor letdowns, I found the second seasons jokes and dialogue to be even better than the first and more than made up for it.
Plus, Archer has made some better pop-culture references this season.

Wait, I am confused. Is this something I shoudl check our or not? It seems to be praised in the review, but he only gave it 2.5 stars.

check it out, but don't go in with high expectations. it's an up and down season. starts STRONG, then fades bad, then comes back with a hell of a vengeance.

My my opinion but I thought the 2nd season improved on the 1st season by leaps and bounds. Don't get me wrong I loved the 1st season too but in the 2nd it seemed like they really knew how to write for the characters better and fleshed them out more, so the jokes and one liners they all had really had more impact

Everyone should check out this show. It's the funniest thing on TV bar none.

I don't remember specifics about the seasons exactly I just know that every week I burst out laughing at the TV watching this.

except Cyril. it's like they forgot how to make a huge dicked sex addict incompetent ninny funny. the opening joke with him and the pills = fantastic. the rest, including his role in the virus episode...not so much. gee, a pants wetting joke. wow, no one listens to him. Woodhouse doesn't get many good jokes aside from his smack addiction.
