  • Terms of EnRampagement

    Archer discovers that his supposed cancer drugs are fakes and sets out to find the people responsible. What's actually touching about this episode is Archer's friendship with Ruth, an elder breast cancer patient, and how they bonded before she died. As Archer moves through the Irish mob on a "rampage" while intermittently getting sick from his chemotherapy drugs and chain smoking marijuana to get rid of the nausea he and Lana confront the lead man, Delaney. While at the office Cyril discovers a dark secret about Krieger when he is questioned about where he grew up as a child and how German scientists are all the rage according to Malory. Good episode, with lots of laughs, perforated ear drums, and snarky possibly racist comments this installment of Archer is some good midseason fun.
