I suppose there has to be a first time for everything.
Hagrid recommended Archer to me. Said it was epic and had the funniest 1st episode he'd ever seen. Despite my scepticism I gave it a go and so far I'm up to episode six and it's all totally ninja.
Think U.N.C.L.E. meets Get Smart, they have a baby and hire Futurama as a tutor for their strange offspring. Then, instead of becoming a sitcom on the regular networks, the kid goes off to Dr. Katz University and has It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia as a room-mate.
Not sure about it taking the the funniest pilot award (Arrested Development must in the running) but it is definitely worth seeking out.
