Master Spy Sterling Archer is dashing, dangerous, drunken, and overly educated? Archer is a rare gem among American animated television shows. Not only does it contain the foul-mouthed adolescent sex humour we have come to love, but also blends in seamlessly obscure literary references with subtle dialogue or the occasional heavy handed over explanation. Agent Sterling Archer proves in each dangerous ISIS orchestrated mission that he has not only intensely studied The Art of Seduction and the Kama Sutra, but many other great works of literary genius as well. While literally every episode contains some reference to literature or literary concepts, we have narrowed the list down to ten obscure fan favorites. We have also included which episode the reference can be found in for quick reference when one needs to wow their friends with a blend of television and literary knowledge. Spoiler Warning: If you have not delved into every episode through the season 4 finale of Archer some of these references may be plot spoilers.
