Archer's third season has come out of the gate running. Nay sprinting. The season opener, "The Man From Jupiter," was an unbelievable start and carried on the excellence of the previous seasons and the hilarious three-part special during the off-season. Last week's “El Contador” only added another brilliant installment in the spy spoof, playing with the conventions perfectly, as always, and having Cyril show some unsuspected skills. Well, before the weak accountant reemerged at the end of his stint in the field, ensuring that all will be back to normal for this week's trip on "The Limited."
This week's adventure brings Sterling, Code Name Duchess, on board an express train looking for both a terrorist and an ocelot. Not necessarily in that order. The synopsis suggests that the good old Royal Canadian Mounted Police (or RCMP or Mounties for us who live in the Great White North) call ISIS in to help capture a Canadian terrorist and the stray feline. However, this preview makes the relationship look a little more, uh, combative and the Mounties, for lack of a better phrase, are handing Sterling and Lana their asses. I assume these differences will be settled since Sterling eventually encounters who I presume to be the terrorist. "All I want is to fight on the top of a train, is that to much to ask?!?" Take a look.
There's also this clip that was released before the season premiere which we now know belongs the "The Limited." Instead of a preview or trailer, this video is just a uncut scene from this Thursday's episode and it shows Archer's tactful handling of the crew on the train while he tries to avert disaster. Or cause it, who knows. Here's the uncut short sequence as another taste of what's to come on "The Limited." Enjoy. I did.
Archer Season 3 returns January 19 at 10p.m. ET on FX. It stars H. Jon Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walters, Judy Greer, Chris Parnell and Amber Nash. It was created by Adam Reed
