The case for allowing questions about Archer:

  • Cyborgs
  • Space travel (occasional)
  • Weird fantasy (as in illogical and unrealistic) timeline
  • Futuristic weapons and technology (in occasional episodes)
  • Frequent references to science fiction and fantasy works, especially LotR, and occasionally comic books and even Star Wars
  • It's awesome

The case against allowing questions about Archer:

  • Not strictly a science fiction or fantasy show (the show is more of an action adventure spy-themed comedy cartoon)
  • Science fiction and fantasy elements are relatively few and far between

So, are questions about Archer on topic or not?

It's basically a spoof of James Bond, and includes many of the same spy-fi elements. It's basically as on topic as Bond is.

    Do we have an official (or at least community consensus) position on the "on-topicness" of Bond? Saying it's "basically as on topic as Bond is" doesn't help if we don't. – Anthony Grist Jul 17 '15 at 13:39
