'Archer' Season 7 Will Move to Los Angeles to Start a Detective Agency

FX’s Archer made up for a late start to the year with an impressive shot-for-shot remake of the Magnum P.I. opening credits, but it seems the Tom Selleck spoof was more than homage.

Bizarro Back Issues: Clark Kent's Hillbilly Bride! (1955)
