Archer: The Complete Season One

Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin) is without a doubt the world’s most dangerous spy.  But not for the reasons you would think.  He is dangerous due to his womanizing, lack of morals and general incompetence at his job.  Luckily for him and unluckily for the clients, his mother (voiced by Jessica Walter) is the head honcho at intelligence agency (ISIS) he works at.  It is amazing that they get anything done with all the personnel issues going on at this agency.  Archer has to not only deal with his mother, Malory Archer, has sex on the brain just as much as her son does but he also works with his ex-girlfriend, Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler), who hates him and is now dating another co-worker comptroller Cyril Figgis (Chris Parnell) and has to avoid the constant and overt flirting of secretary Cheryl (Judy Greer).  To say this stuff is adult content is an understatement.
