“Waxing Gibbous” is the second time that an “Archer” season ended by abandoning the show’s commitment to horror and comedy for something ambitious. The previous episode consisted of various surprising scenes, including Dr. Krieger’s fight against his own Nazi masters. It seems that there will be plenty of surprises in the new episodes of “Archer.” The unusual structure of Dreamland makes it an appealing show.

“Archer” is a spy sitcom developed by #Adam Reed for the FX network. On September 12, 2009, the first episode of the show went on air and made the headlines. FX renewed the series for ten new seasons, totaling 201 episodes.
