    Archer
    Episode 309 –Bloody Ferlin
    Aired February23rd, 2012
    10 PM, FX

    Although the title of this episode may make you think this episode is a parody of FX's other really great show, Justified, it's not. Well, it is if you limit it to the episode's title alone. No, as Archer says, it's closer in spirit to White Lightning, an old Burt Reynolds film (well of course). Archer and Lana respond to a break in at ISIS's armory,only to find the person responsible is Ray … who is no longer confined to a wheelchair. Seems he never needed it at all, it was just that everyone assumed he was since he left the hospital in one,and he figured he'd play along, if only to screw with them. Kind of a cheat, but I'll allow it, because everybody in ISIS is a vaguely horrible human being in some respect. (Malory may have no redeeming qualities whatsoever.)


    Anyhoo, it seems Ray's brother down in West Virginia is a pot farmer, and a dirty local Sheriff is threatening to kill him and take over his operation, so Ray is going to help him, because that's what family does. Even though Ray isn't all that wild about his brother, who also thinks he's straight and married to a woman. Archer decides to help because it sounds a bit like the plot of White Lightning, and because he's thinking of moonshine and hot to trot farmer's daughters.

    Supernatural
    Episode 715 – Repo Man
    Aired February 17th, 2012
    9 PM,CW

    There has to be an interesting story in the aftermath of Sam and Dean's methods, and their effects on the innocent people caught in their war on demons. This isn't it, but for a moment, there was promise.


    We open on a flashback that never actually happened (but could have),with Sam and Dean and a woman (a psychic or a witch? I wasn't sure …) violently interrogating a demon which has possessed a man and madehim violently kill a few women. After getting the okay from the human, they proceed to torture the demon until it tells them what they want to know, and then they exorcise the demon from his body.They drop the injured man off at an ER and leave.

    The cast of a reality TV show survives a disaster – but now they’re living on borrowed time.

    The latest season of the reality TV show “Challengers,” a survivalist program, is hoping to find the spark that it used to have with a crew of “celebrity” contestants. Like most reality shows, the “celebrities” seem to be a mixture of has-beens and wanna-bes, but unlike most reality shows, the whole thing is derailed when the plane transporting them to the filming location crashes into a mountain. Everybody but the pilot, miraculously, wakes up unharmed in the land of Nanda Parbat. And from there, things get interesting.

    Thus far, Infestation 2 has felt somewhat more forced than the original. The zombie premise of the first one has been abandoned, this time with creatures from the Cthulhu mythos breaking the veil between realms and causing trouble. To my surprise, the introduction of the monster to this Dungeons and Dragons setting has given us a really entertaining comic book.

    Title: Executive Decisions & Where Have You Been, Dilton Doiley?

    On Earth-Veronica, Archie faces his marriage’s collapse, while on Earth-Betty he’s finds himself torn between two futures. And in both worlds, the elusive Dilton Doiley finally makes his move.

    Publisher: Archie Comics

    From the beginning, both universes featured in this title have been split between two different (but equally entertaining) tracks. On the one hand, we had the character drama about Archie and his respective wives, with the changes for their friends that came with it. On the flip side, there’s been the slowly-simmering B-plot about the missing Professor Dilton Doiley and his search for a way to travel between multiple dimensions.

    Archer
    Episode 308 – Lo Scandalo
    Aired February 16th, 2012
    10 PM, FX

    Archer bounces back with an episode that spends time with Malory, and discovers many twisted layers in the show's grande dame. And also muddies the supposed time frame of this series, which has never quite been determined. It seems contemporary, but it seems like the wars we know of are slightly out of sequence, or something like that.


    Anyhoo,Malory calls Archer and Lana for help, and they arrive at her lavish place to discover she has in her living room a man bound to a chair,wearing a kinky flesh colored body suit, with several bullet holes in his chest, and a ... “marital aid” up his butt. I bet you're thinking exactly what I thought – Tupperware party gone horribly wrong! But no, apparently the kinky dead guy is the Prime Minister of Italy, and according to Malory, masked gunmen broke into her homewhile she was, um ... “entertaining” him (ahem), and shot him,with the intention of framing her for murder. They're a bit dubious about her story, but change their minds a bit when it's revealed she has a bullet wound. Still, they're not going to help her get rid of the body.
