“Archer” Animated Series Summary
The storyline focuses on a spy, named Sterling Archer, who can’t take a step without control of his mother (who also acts as his boss), and who can’t cope with even insignificant trouble without the help of his ex-girlfriend serving as his fellow spy. Sterling is surrounded by other noticeable characters, as well. It’s worth mentioning that some seasons have drastically changed the course of the storyline. Thus, originally, Sterling worked in ISIS. But in the fifth season, the series turned into a Miami Vice-style satire, due to restriction of using the term “ISIS.” So, already in sixth season Archer worked for the CIA. In its seventh season, the producers decided once again to reboot the series. Thus, currently (in Season 7), Sterling is working for a private detective agency, with a headquarter in Los Angeles.
