Archer Pays Homage to Magnum, P.I. — Watch the Season 7 Teaser

Archer is no stranger to 1980s cop show parodies. Having previously channeled Miami Vice in Season 5, the animated comedy is now setting its crosshairs on Magnum, P.I.

The recently released Season 7 teaser pays homage to the iconic Tom Selleck series with a shot-by-shot recreation of its opening title sequence. Don’t believe us? Have a look at this side-by-side edit:

Even if you aren’t familiar with Magnum, there’s still plenty to love about this latest tease, including rodeo clown Pam and Archer’s knack for helicopter sound effects.

Watch the parody above, then sound off in the comments. (Archer returns Thursday, March 31 on FX.)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Does that mean that Archer’s idea for what to do after they got blacklisted from intelligence work is to be P.I.s?
