CHICAGO – You should buy the third season of “Archer,” just released on Blu-ray and DVD, if just for the season premiere, “The Man from Jupiter,” featuring an absolutely amazing guest performance from Burt Reynolds. Actually, that is the fourth episode of this season as the three-part “Heart of Archness” aired three months earlier and kicks off this DVD. Whatever you call it, it’s hysterical. In a crowded field that includes former titans like “Family Guy,” “South Park,” and “The Simpsons,” “Archer” is the funniest animated show on TV.

H. Jon Benjamin brilliantly voices spy Sterling Mallory Archer on his adventures with and without ISIS, the most notorious international spy agency in the world. “Archer” is consistently smart, perfectly paced, and damn funny with some of the best voice work in years from Benjamin, Aisha Tyler, Jessica Walter, Chris Parnell, Judy Greer, Amber Nash, and a revolving door of guest stars. It’s a spy spoof but it’s also just a funny comedy without the pop culture references, not unlike “The Office Meets 007.” It’s a workplace comedy and the workplace just happens to be that of a bunch of borderline-sociopathic super spies.

With a crisis brewing aboard the international space station, Earth may be doomed, but the world’s most dangerous secret agent has bigger worries. Archer’s dead fiancée returns to life as a cyborg. His nemesis, Bionic Barry, takes over the KGB, and Archer’s mother has steamy affairs with both the Italian prime minister and Archer’s man-crush.

  • Punk Punk

    CHICAGO – For theater that is audaciously in-the-now and generates a sparkle of life, there are few better storefront (garage, gothic gathering place) groups than “Nothing Without a Company.” Their latest, eclectic kick-in-the-head production is the intensely diverting and weirdly fun “Punk Punk.”

  • Assassination Theater

    CHICAGO – There are two dates in modern American History that ring in the heads of certain generations. Of course, there is September 11th, 2001, but the granddaddy of that date is November 22nd, 1963. That is when an American president, John F. Kennedy, was shot point blank in the head and killed on the street of an American city. The official proclamation from the government is that a lone assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, fired those shots. In a new Chicago play, “Assassination Theater,” subtitled “Chicago’s Role in the Crime of the Century,” the jury is still decidedly out.
