Archer Vice

God, the latest season of Archer (or Archer Vice as this season has been dubbed) is fantastic! In the last episode, Archer, Cyrill and Ray are in Bolivia trying to find La Madrina, the godmother of the Cali Cartel in order to sell their “shit-tonne” of cocaine before Pam uses it all (and turns into a slender woman with massive breasts.)

Here Archer befriends a bunch of locals in his attempt to make contact with El Madrina. It looks to be somewhat successful as they attract the necessary attention. The greatest exchange of the episode:

Cyrill: I have a question; since we’re now essentially captives of the Cali cartel and being dragged off to god knows what terrible fate, WHY THE HELL ARE YOU SMILING!?
Archer: a) We’re not their captives, we’re about to be their business partners, b) I bet there’s a pretty descent chance La Madrina owns a tiger, and c) guapo means handsome.

Of the inevitable sex scene between Archer and La Madrina, we only see the conclusion:

I can’t wait for next week’s episode. :)

Person of Interest s03e10 – The Devil’s Share

The opening scene to episode 10 of season 3 of Person of Interest, titled The Devil’s Share, is probably the show’s highlight so far. The mid-season climax was devastating, to say the least, and the fallout is summed up nicely in the first scene while Johnny Cash is doing his famous cover of Nine Inch Nails’ Hurt.

I thought The Walking Dead’s mid-season climax was hardcore — and it certainly was hardcore — but this just strummed all the right emotional snares.


The subject of spoilers has come up a few times in the last few days and as a result, I came to the realisation that I don’t mind spoilers because almost all film and television is so incredibly formulaic that I don’t need the spoilers to know what’s going to happen and how it’s going to happen. Very few things are a real Usual Suspects, Sixth Sense type twist for me anyway.
