A lright, it’s about that time again—to sit on the couch, relax, and have a refreshing drink. Maybe a Mai Tai because the hit animated show Archer is back in full-swing for its ninth season, subtitled Danger Island, on FXX. Starting with the first episode, “Strange Pilot,” we witness a twist from the very beginning—not only altering the genre of the characters—but also their appearances, like with Pam Poovey. We chatted with the voice behind Pam, Amber Nash, about her experience working on the show. BY JUSTIN GRANT How does it feel being a part of a show that’s lasted this long? It’s amazing. And it’s funny because I used to always say to people, “Oh yeah, I am on this show called Archer,” and now if I would say that, they respond, “Yeah, we know what Archer is. You don’t have to say the show called Archer.” It’s funny how it’s such an institution now, everybody knows it, it’s been around for a long time. It’s syndicated, and they run repeats on Comedy Central, so it’s a dream come true. It’s absolutely wonderful. It’s fun that we get to keep it fresh by changing things around too. Cliché: What’s the experience been like working on Archer? Amber Nash: It has been incredible. In the beginning, I didn’t have any idea that it was going to be as much of a hit show or as well-received as it has been, and I had no idea that Archer was going to go on for so long. So it has been amazing. I have learned a lot and I have gotten to work with some amazing people in the cast. It changed my life. It is still pretty cool that I get to live in the city where I am from and work on a hit show on FXX. It is pretty wonderful. What was your reaction to the new direction this season was taking and Pam’s new role? I was really excited about it because last season it was kind of dark and it was really serious. Now this season it is just over-the-top and just silly. It’s back to just crazy Archer stuff, and I love it. I read the first episode and, I was like, “Man, I need a Mai Tai.” It blows the world.
