Nah. Cyril certainly has developed some competence at the spy game and a bit of a backbone.

He already had competence, the episode in the jungle with the drug lord showed that. Being around Archer kept him down since he wasn't so great at the "shooting stuff" thing but he was good at preparing for a mission and then using the knowledge to actually infiltrate whatever.

The level of betrayal I felt when Paradox announced their new wallpaper tore something from me that I'll never be able to recover. They tore away my ability to respect anything, and they tore away my ability to feel human.

Cyril has more competence, he's not doing 'suppressing fire', he's not loving up situations, and he's not a coward anymore. His problem is that he's still not as dynamic a character as Archer, which means that as good as he's gotten, when on a mission with Archer he still ends up getting punched in the face until unconscious.

Will he, though? If Krieger goes the way of most of the other folks on this show, he might start reverting. Not that reverting is bad in this case.

About a month and a half ago, I was out driving around, and was behind a pickup truck that had the words "Rush Neil Peart" hand painted on the tailgate.

Reverting from what? A couple of details have changed but he's basically the same guy. Honestly, I think that's the point the show is making about the whole cast. They seemed different at first, but that was just a surface-level understanding.

That said, Archer has yet to prove that he's wrong about being a drag on the team.

Yay, the KGB is back! I always liked the modern-day cold war setting and was sad that they abandoned it in later seasons.

This episode was honestly season 1-3 quality for me; lot's of solid jokes. Cyril nodding in the background when they talked about Barry's amazing penis was a great detail.

Apart from the coma references that could have been an early season episode, was so good.

I didn't watch all the coma seasons, was the song connected to anything Archer dreamed in his coma?

It really feels like they have their old enthusiasm back. Part of me is hoping they get renewed for more seasons like this one, part of me is hoping they just end it this year so it can go out on a high note. I hadnít really been following this show as it was airing since midway into S5, so Iím delighted to be into it again.

Now that they are a spy agency again, I kinda wish they would go back to being an actual organization with minor employees doing stuff in the background, the main characters having different functions, etc. They still seem to be sticking to the late-season status quo, where the agency consists entirely of the main characters, who all go on field ops as one big group.

Oh, well, the episodes are still reasonably funny, and I will be sticking around to the end.

Also, they seemed to have listened to my feedback because both of the recent episodes have had Cyril, Lana, and Archer (and Barry) handle the field missions, while the rest of the cast have their own b-plot back at the office. Just like in the good old days!

All that is missing from the first seasons is the sense of the agency being a larger organization with wacky extras doing stuff in the background, references to other agents, etc. The office building seems oddly empty with just the main cast there.

I think that's the point they are just starting back up and are a small elite team still which is why everyone was going on every mission. Watch them recruit every rival team they ran into to fill the roster and it ends with everyone they hated being a big happy family together. (Archer really shouldn't go for that type of ending, but since it's 2020 it might be the right ending).
