I'd heard a lot of rumblings about some new TV show on cable/satellite called "Archer" that was new this past year. The animation looked meh, but a lot of people were saying it was pretty funny.
I saw that it was available on Netflix a couple months ago, but I was deep in another TV series at the time, so I didn't have time to watch. It recently became available again, and I have to say, I'm really surprised at how much I enjoy this show!
Archer is about the international world of espionage. The main character, Archer, is a dimwitted buffoon, but always seems to be able to play every situation perfectly. Though, he very often gets his "coworkers" in very testy situations (aka killed) by drunkenly doing something incredibly stupid.
The story works, and once I started watching the pilot, I knew I had to finish the entire series. It's very rare that I can find a comedy that legitimately and literally makes me laugh, and this is one that does so.
I'd recommend starting from the pilot and going forward from there, because the inside jokes become that much better if you fully understand the source. But the show's not entirely based on inside jokes, as it's absolutely full of one-liners that I've already started repeating outside of watching the show.
