Archer: Danger Island The Complete Season Nine
Get ready for a change of scenery with the semi-functioning alcoholic seaplane pilot, Sterling Archer, a lush on the lush South Pacific island of Mitimotu in 1939. While the rest of the world is concerned about the impending Second World War, Archer is only concerned with who's buying his next drink. Along with his trusty co-pilot Pam, Archer must navigate quicksand, cannibals, super-intelligent monkeys, poison darts, pirates, and did we mention quicksand?
As much as I like Archer the last 2 seasons were not great. So I'm glad to say that season 9 was able to keep me watching from beginning to end. If you don't already know Archer was shot in Season 7 leaving him in a coma. In season 8 while a coma and he dreams he's late 40's private eye trying to solve who killed his partner. Well, not much has changed medically for our hero in season 9. However, this time around he's a pilot with Pam as his co-pilot who both work for Mallory's resort.
This story takes place on the lush South Pacific island of Mitimotu around 1938. This season is styled after the 198's show Tales of the Gold Monkey where the hero a former war pilot now operates an air cargo delivery business for a fictional south pacific island named Bora Gora. Show creator Adam Reed has said that Tales was one of his favorite shows.
This season was leaps and bounds better than the past two, but I must admit I may be a bit biased since the detective stuff is not a genre I enjoy, while the action-adventure style of Danger Island was more my cup of tea. while the jokes are about the same for a season of archer the addition of a mysterious island, cannibals, pirates, and Nazis make this season totally worthwhile.
