‘Archer’ Season 5, Episode 11 – Palace Intrigue, Part 2 | TV Review


It becomes clear to me that whenever Cheryl/Carol/Cherlene/Whatever (Judy Greer) takes a prominent role, it is a damn good thing. I find her lunacy endearing, and she literally and figuratively chews the scenery with every line she says. So let us discuss the famous George “Jorge” Washington shall we?


Well I didn’t know he was spanish (sarcasm, if it needed to be clearer) for a start, and did you know he only served two terms because he didn’t want to be compared to a monarch? It was only made law (see the 22nd ammendment) in 1951 after the three term presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. This episode was very educational it seems and thanks to the power of American culture, I know a lot more about US history than I do British. Thank the schools for that.


The highlight of this episode comes in the form of Cheryl/Carol/Cherlene, who can do no wrong in my eyes. Even with the apparent death of her friend, I shall not name names for fear of spoilers, she faces the eyes of Hades with a smile and only a guitar to deflect the gunfire. Forgive me for sounding crass but that is one of the the coolest things I’ve ever seen. Why is the show about Archer again? Archer is available on Netflix.
