  1. It’s hard to believe that the season finale is so close and as usual I feel like I’m just not getting enough Archer. The good part is that the show has been renewed and I’m not surprised. After all this is one of the best shows on TV and it’s super successful on FX. I saw a clip in my office at DISH of Archer’s latest mission and it made me laugh out loud. This show always has me laughing at the ridiculous antics of the cast and how much it is a dysfunctional version of The Office. I wasn’t able to watch the newest episode but I plan on watching it tonight on my train ride home. Thanks to DISH Anywhere and the Hopper I can watch the latest episode on my iPad anytime, anywhere. It’s a great way to keep up with my favorite show.
