Archer used to be on FX.

Then FX created FXX and put Archer on that instead.

DirecTV put FXX on a higher tier with all the sports channels. When I realized I was paying over $200 a year for sports channels I never watch... I dropped the sports channels, and lost FXX which was the only way to legally watch new Archer.

I find it annoying that FX used their popular show to boost viewers of their new channel that would still sell ad time but also cost me more money to watch.

Exactly what am I wrong about, here?
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Whose fault is that? FX or FXX's? Because you blamed them.

Granted, it very well COULD be their fault (well...their distributor). People don't realize that a lot of times these channels get shoved into packages the distributor (like Viacom), NOT YOUR PROVIDER, creates. So perhaps it was packaged with some FOX sports channels? Or it was DirecTV's fault trying to pump up the number of eyes on FXX by packaging it with popular sports channels and vice versa?

So you're against capitalism? Are you honestly saying they shouldn't be allowed to grow? Do you complain to Kroger management when they move the tomatoes to where the watermelons used to be? Isn't it smart for a company to use a known product to try and sell a new product?

Does it suck? FUCK YES!!!! I didn't like it when they did the exact same thing with The League.

But aren't we wrong for condemning it? Aren't we wrong for condemning CBS for moving their new Star Trek show to a pay to watch model and off free TV? Let them figure out on their own that people aren't going to pay $15 a month for a Star Trek show, and if they do, shame on us as consumers for being stupid enough to allow this shit to continue.

They don't know that. Every cable company is different because it's a different contract.

And doesn't DirecTV offer you free access to primetime shows and whatnot? I can watch new episode of shows on channels I don't even have through OnDemand and for free. They typically go up the day after they air and are there for a month or so.

Plus, you have Hulu and Netflix, right? Archer is shown on both services. Season 8 will hit around 30 days prior to Season 9 airing.

Or you could just go to their website and watch the whole season right now for free...

Did you cut my sentence in half to remove context so you could criticize each half?

At any rate, fuck the relevant parties. I'm not paying for the sports tier to watch Archer.

Not intentionally no. I actually thought the second half was irrelevant. However, if we're being honest, the whole sentence does translate to "Fuck them for trying to make more money."

Not judging, we've all done that as I admitted to doing the exact same thing with the exact same channels.

Finally watched season 8, "Archer, Dreamland," since it aired on FXX and I wasn't going to upgrade the TV package to add FXX onto it. Reruns aired on FX, so I finally got it on the DVR.

Anyway, way to leave the big loose end, loose. I thought I was missing an episode. Looked it up, and nope. Just unresolved.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

Dreamland was shit.

They really need to get back to the basics. Wasn't there a story that they were "rebooting" or something?

I was introduced to a French man named Benoit yesterday. And of course, in my head, I immediately said "balls".

Archer Noir was mostly shit.

Just watched the entire Archer: Danger Island season, and it wasn't the worst thing ever.

Here's what's coming in Season 10:

Ok, I figure one of two things is happening during Archer 1999:

1. It isn't as funny as it used to be.
2. It is as funny as it used to be, but I've changed and no longer think it's funny.

No laughs, 5 eps in.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

TBH, the best laughs were the first season. S2 and 3 were good, but once Ron Cadillac came along, it was just mostly not funny at all.


Lol just realized I said the same thing last year :D

Probably a bit of both.

The creator really hurts the show by drastically altering characters and having gotten bored with the spy stuff. Hard to get invested in characters when they're constantly changing in every way except for their names.
