Archer: The Complete Fourth Season – Blu-ray Edition

Just like South Park this is an animated series which is definitely not suitable for kids. Sex jokes, adult situational humour and downright offensive stuff are all to be expected from this thoroughly enjoyable series. The premise is a spy named Sterling Archer (voiced by H. Jon Benjamin), who really is terrible at his job but doesn’t really know it and somehow manages to come out on top, works at an agency in which his mother (voiced by Jessica Walters) is the boss and his ex-girlfriend (voiced by Aisha Tyler) is a colleague. Every show involves him getting into situations and somehow bumbling his way out of them. It is the type of series which is great to own because it gets better and better each time you rewatch an episode. Trust me this is a great watch!
