>tfw the entire last season was just so they could have a way to drop the ISIS namelink to the terrorist organization
>>
>>77854160
That worked out pretty well.
>>
>>77854160
I wonder if they'll ever acknowledge that they used to use the same name as the terrorist group ISIS. Even just a small joke about it or something.
>>
>>77854233
They say the same group doesn't exist there.
>>
>>77854419
Also, Matt and Trey the creators of southpark said that if they had this issue and ran Archer they'd have made an entire season arc where ISIS hunted down and destroyed the terrorist group for stealing their name. Which would have been also pretty sweet but Fox is filled with pussies so sadly we don't have something cool like that.

Imagine replacing last season with an arc around hunting down ISIS.
>>
>>77854160
what do you mean? what did they do that changed their organization in that season? I don't remember anything. it was basically back to status quo
and they still called it isis a few times
and the terrorist organization isnt even called that
>>
>>77854949
Everyone still calls it isis even if obama tried making isil a thing m8.

Anyways at the end of the season the CIA pretty much is going to force them to go undercover because they can no longer operate a spy intelligence organization with US authorization I'm pretty sure that when they rebrand themselves in whatever crazy shit they're doing next season to avoid the CIA they'll no longer call themselves ISIS.

>>77854572
I had thay same idea. Woulda been really funny. It's not too late though.

Good seeing that hasn't infested anything Archer Thread-related

Should've just had Malory bitching to Cheryl and Pam as they replaced all the ISIS shit with a new name and logo and how much that costs.
>>
Last season was worth it for Pocket Listing, alone.

>>77854572

I dunno. I'm all for pushing the envelope but poking at terrorist groups, especially ones that could go after you, is kind of scary.

I'd have at least made some jokes and had a stupid name change like ESES.

>Archer: ESES? What does that even stand for?
>Mallory: Oh I don't know... Extra Secret Excellent Service... why are you still here, you have a mission!
>Archer: Uh yeah, an extra excellent mission.. hahaha...
>[awkward pause as they look at each other]
>Archer: That was a joke.
>Mallory: And not a very good one.
>Archer: Well maybe it would've been better if SOMEONE let me go to comedian summer camp!

I lost the game!

Are you telling me you don't read everything in H Jon Benjamin's voice? Then what's the point of reading?

Where'd they say this, some quick googling didn't turn up anything.

>>77854572
Oh yay, more childish revenge fantasies from Parker and Stone.
>>

>>77858186
Scratch that. I read the article wrong, they never said that. People were saying they should do it the southpark way, calling that the south park way.

My bad guys.

It actually got better.

Pour vous

should've just been a recurring joke about being the same name as a terrorist cell desu

I know senpai. I know.

Honestly I thought they were going to do something like that, or have some kind of gag where they get the agency's name censored due to the Islamic State, and then they get all pissed off over it and go kill a bunch of ISIS militants. I want this show to have it's own "Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants" moment.

That would make sense if their last season was last year. However, if they want to avoid bullshit in the future, dropping the name is easy enough. They were just a CIA/SIS expy anyway, so having them just flat out work for the CIA makes sense.

I'm thinking the only reason they didn't work for the CIA to begin with was to avoid comparisons to American Dad.
>>
>>77854160
As I remember it the only thing they did to the season was cut some dialogue that mentioned ISIS and have that scene with rolling out the ISIS logo in the first episode. That's hardly designing the whole season around the change.
>>
>>77854949
No they weren't, the CIA basically shut down ISIS because they couldn't have a high profile private spy agency operating out of the US, but then reconstituted all of ISIS' assets and personnel as a new nameless nominally-private-but-really-working-for-the-CIA spy agency to do shit that they need plausible deniability for.
>>
>>77854160
can anyone actually tell me why IS extremists are being called ISIS?
they never said "this is our name", and 'islamic state" is just IS

my parents had to change their house name that they've had for 10 years because they were getting death threats
