If you’ve ever watched an episode of Archer, you’d be hard-pressed to suggest that the show’s titular character, Sterling Archer, isn’t based at least a little bit on James Bond. They’re both considered the world’s deadliest spy in their own realms. They both enjoy booze – Bond with his Martinis, Archer with his Bloody Marys. I mean, you could even take photos of James Bond and overlay Archer quotes on them and nobody would be the wiser.

Okay, maybe that last sentence is less true. Bond doesn’t strike me as the type to eat gummy bears.
However, some folks have turned that concept into a meme. Here’s a few more instances:
Recently, Entertainment Weekly asked Archer to drop the spy game and work as their film critic for a week, and his assignment was to review every James Bond movie. Not only did Archer agree, but the show’s creator, Adam Reed, actually put together a video of Archer talking about his favourites.
Here’s that video:
That’s only a handful of the films reviewed there, but the rest of them are available in text form at Entertainment Weekly’s website.
