15 Continuity Details From 'Archer' That Show It's Time For A Rewatch

List RulesVote up the continuity details you missed when you first watched 'Archer.'

Archer has consistently been hailed as one of the smartest works of adult animation since it first debuted in 2009 on FX. Borrowing from the likes of James Bond, Burt Reynolds films, and even the likes of pulp novels and Miami Vice through its many iterations, one of Archer's defining traits is a continuous narrative that builds upon itself with massive threads of continuity. Archer is one of those shows that greatly benefits from repeat viewings due to just how much detail and humor is packed into each 22-minute episode; it's impossible to catch all of the small continuity details in one go.

This is a collection of continuity details from Archer. Vote up the details you missed the first time you watched the series!
