I like archer, but 1 star for suggesting it's better than venture bros.
It's like a better written frisky dingo
Despite the fact that FX was clearly angling for their own 'Venture Bros.' (especially with the rip-off title screen), I like that the creators took the show in a different direction.
While both shows use the boys' adventure fiction of the 1960s as a jumping-off point, the shows deal with different topics. 'Venture Bros.' is more a character study on the failure of super-science, while 'Archer' deals more with the inner-office politics of a super-science spy organization. The former is all about internal development, whereas the latter is all about external development.
TL;DR: Despite the similar settings, the shows are trying to be different things, so any comparison is moot.
Extra spirit star because I strongly suspect Archer will be banging his mother by the end of the second season.
If Venture Brothers was any fucking good, it would not be on sunday nights at 10:30 pm.
Fucking SERIOUSLY, 80% of the people on this website are fuckin tards.
Maybe you should head up to that rocket science website instead.

-1 star only because Archer has yet to be as funny as Frisky Dingo, despite being written by the same people. It is getting there, however.

That wasn't funny at all. Please post a clip that has humor in it.
It is better if you know the show already.
It's not McGurk, it's not Venture, but it's alright nonetheless. Still, I trading in both venture and archer for an other season of home movies. Yeah, I said it.
I second your opinion, Aelric. I just got back from spending the weekend at an old friend's house and we probably spent 80% of it re-watching old Home Movies DVDs.
I said it before, I'll say it again: H. Jon is one of the greatest comic geniuses alive today.
H. Jon always gets 5.

Funny in the context of his massive Oedipus complex which is pervasive throughout the series.
Also the use of the term 'Sex Robe'
If I wanted context I would sure as hell not be here right now. Still, +1 for "sex robe".

This is maybe not the best intro to Archer. But Archer is very very good.

This show made me realize how much Frisky Dingo actually sucks. Adult Swim would not be able to run this.

Saying Archer is better than the Venture Brothers is like saying blowjobs are better than butt sex. Why would you ever give up either???
