Synopsis- Archer is shocked to learn that his mother is dating Burt Reynolds.
This episode is the first episode of season 3. We find that Burt Reynolds is dating Sterlings mother. Reynolds gives Sterling some sound advice when he tells him to see his mother as a human being and not always as his mother. To be honest, I first thought that Burt Reynolds may be Sterlings real father but this seems a bit far-off.
We get to see the gang back. Its appears, although still apart, Lana and Archer think a lot a like and they know each other on a whole new level. Its a wonder why Lana has yet to move on since Archer had the understanding and personality of a small child. It appears he will not be satisfied with himself until he is dying, yet again, of some terminal disease. Cyril still hates Archer. Pam and Cherly are all still up to their antics.
The funniest thing I found about this episode was Ray and his wheel chair. The constant ‘cracking’ and jokes about how he is no longer an effective field agent- was simply hilarious. He and Lana get into a huge argument, a few harsh words were thrown around like affirmative action and Lana not being all that good of an agent because she is a women.
In its entirety, this episode seemed a little rushed. What I have come to not really understand about Archer is why do the writers spend so much time setting the story, then when the action comes it usual comes and goes in the last few minutes of the show. Overall, this episode was a bit of a dud, I did not care much for the intense but not funny dialogue with Burt Reynolds. This seemed more Burt Reynolds-centric and not Archer and the Gang centric. For this reason I have to give this episode a lower rating.
Episode Grade: C-
