Viewing Habits - Archer
I've started binge-watching FX's animated spy comedy, Archer, on Amazon Prime. I'd caught a couple of episodes over the years and knew I'd enjoy it, so I started watching it last week. I'm up to the third episode of Season 3 and really loving it. I like the ambiguous timeline of mashed up 60's/70's/80's/90's fashions and technology, the colorful (but static) animation style and backgrounds, and the fantastic voice work. Plus, it helps that the show is just really funny.
I think this is the first show I've ever binge-watched, actually. I rewatched several seasons of Battlestar Galactica on DVD with Rachel until she caught up, but I don't think I've ever watched an entire series in this way. (Although I will soon catch up, the show is still airing new episodes with its seventh season to premier next year.)
