Archer launched in 2009 as a hysterically funny spy satire focused on “the world’s greatest secret agent” Sterling Archer, his ex-girlfriend Lana and their numerous dysfunctional co-workers. Sterling Archer, an alcoholic womanizer, often abandons missions to pursue his personal agenda, only to later save his comrades from his incapacitation through hand-to-hand combat and sharpshooting.

Sterling’s ignorance of others generated frustration and chaos amongst the team members of the spy agency, who showed their own moral culpability. The show uses vulgar jokes combined with sophisticated high-brow humour, serves a number of audiences.
