I watched the first couple episodes on Comcast's OnDemand.  It was funny, but didn't blow me away.  I've been a fan of H. Jon Benjamin since Dr Katz so I was really looking forward to this one, but I don't think I'll be going out of my way to see it.

I watched the first two episodes. Some of it was funny.
My feeling is that I could take it or leave it.

I watched the pilot when it aired awhile back and didn't care for it.  I might try to catch an episode if it's better.

I love the show, but appear to be an in ever shrinking minority. The show is shedding viewers by the hundreds of thousands every week. Episode 4 only brought in like 620,000 viewers, which is low even for a cable network.

I suspect it would be doing far better on a different night, perhaps not running against relatively huge shows like The Mentalist.

Just caught most of a couple episodes tonight. Pretty funny stuff. Hopefully it will stick around for a bit. Maybe get picked up by Adult Swim or something.

I love this show. It gets funnier and funnier.

The fact that every character has hilarious lines shows its not just a one track wonder like Frisky Dingo (which was pointless if a scene didn't have Xander, Killface, or the X-tacles).

yeah, I went looking for it last night.  I got a feeling they took it down to try and spur DVD sales since season one just came out on DVD.

I just got the DVD, myself.  I wasn't sure it would hit me the right way.  I liked Frisky Dingo at first, but got tired of it part way through.  Something about Archer elevates it, though.  It may be that the animation is a little better.  It may be that the setting and characters are a little less bizarre and give them a better playground.  I think it's the quality of the cast, though.  Benjamin has perfected his unique style, of course, but Aisha Tyler (especially), Chris Parnell and Jessica Walter are phenomenal.  Judy Greer is always good.  And I don't know the girl who plays Pam, but she's good, too.

It's back up on Instant Watch.  I watched the pilot last night, which I had seen before, but I've been enjoying the ones I've caught so far from Season 2, so I'm going back to get caught up.

Last week's episode, Terms of Enrampagement, was so over the top dark and wrong that I'm surprised it hasn't sparked at least one hate letter story in the news.  I thought it was hilarious, but I also love South Park.

Agreed. I rewound the scene with the Irish mob to watch it again just because of his delivery of the Family Feud sequence.

It was a masterpiece.  Wrong, dark, yet serious and rather touching.  Really a whole other level beyond the other 4-5 eps I have watched so far.  I'm glad Season 1 is back on instant so I can catch up.

The sound editors do such a good job on this show--the comedic timing on the dialogue is stellar.

There was a scene in one of the recent episodes that had me laughing hysterically for a few minutes.  It was just a throwaway scene...something playing in the background that wasn't the focus of the scene.  It was Archer shaving, and sitting on the sink next to him, the wee baby Seamus was just flicking a straight razor up and down repeatedly.  For some reason, I just couldn't stop laughing at that image.

Another excellent episode.  Pam has always been one of my favorite characters and it was great to see her featured.
