The hit FX series Archer is about to re-enter the “danger zone” as the spies at ISIS like to refer to it, as Season 5 begins on January 13th.

In what could be possibly the greatest preview ever for an episode of Archer, the gang over at ISIS, the International Secret Intelligence Agency, recreate the events of Top Gun.

Obviously, they star Archer as the ‘Maverick’ character. They pair him up with Cyril, who is filling in the place of Goose.

Then, you throw in Lana as Maverick’s love interest Charlie, and things start to take shape.

Watch here at Sterling Archer, Cyril Figgis, Lana Kane, Ray Gillette, and the rest of the agents of ISIS break it down Kenny Loggins style.

 

Archer highlights the voice talents of Bob’s Burgers’ H. Jon Benjamin as the ridiculously vain super spy Sterling Archer, Girl on Guy host Aisha Tyler as Archer’s ex-girlfriend and fellow agent Lana Kane, Arrested Development’s Jessica Walter as the director of ISIS, and Archer’s mother, Malory Archer.

Archer also stars Anchorman actor Chris Parnell as ISIS comptroller, and Lana’s boyfriend Cyril Figgis, Adam Reed as Agent Ray Gillette, Lucky Yates as the mad scientist-like Doctor Krieger, Judy Greer and Amber Nash as ISIS office staff Cheryl Tunt and Pam Poovey respectively. The cast is rounded out by George Coe, who plays Archer’s man servant Woodhouse.

Just in case you have never seen an episode of Archer and don’t quite get the Danger Zone reference, here is a look at some of Archer’s best “Danger Zone” moments.

 

Archer returns on January 13th at 10:00 p.m. on FX.

    Lana looks damn pretty with that hair. Somehow I think that particular episode is a play-off, like a parody of another series, like Maverick, as you mentioned, and not an actual storyline of the ISIS agents. where the characters play as someone else. I dunno, maybe or maybe not. It’s a way of giving the audience what they want to see without actually giving it to them, get what I mean? Anyway, I’m sure i’ll still love it!
