Archer: drug testing taken as apathetically as we wish it could be
If you haven’t yet caught an episode of Archer, I highly recommend it. Start from the beginning. But if you’re an old hand at Archer, you just gotta love the new episode that includes drug testing.
One online TV reviewer wrote: “Episode Synopsis: Cyril is promoted to field agent, and Malory institutes a strict drug-testing policy at ISIS. The staff doesn’t think much of either development.”
I love it. For those of you who don’t know, Cyril is the do-anything-to-keep-up-with-Archer’s-coolness character played by Chris Parnell (of Saturday Night Live fame.)
In this episode, no one gives a damn about Cyril’s promotion because he’s a know-it-all, and has the relationship with Lana (the show’s femme fatale) that Archer once had and is constantly trying to rekindle… albeit… in his own “Archer” kinda way.
But the best part is how nonchalantly everyone is about having to pass a drug test. Here’s a short but hilarious clip from the drug testing episode of Archer in which receptionist Pam “beat boxes” due to obvious circumstances:
If only we all had a workplace like this one. Passing a drug test would be easy… but dodging bullets would be hard. Meh, I’ll take literal bullet-dodging over trying to pass a drug test any day of the week!
