From an early age, we as children were told to do things or behave in a certain way that is accepted by society. Social acceptance soon became a part of our life, and we unintentionally began doing things as per societal norms. These societal norms gave rise to several taboos in a society, which is common human nature and tendency in reality. But we were bound to follow these norms, and soon enough, these norms turned out to be iron shackles for us. We hoped for life without societal norms and boundations.
As if on cue, black comedy as a genre came into existence and soon became popular among cinema lovers. Black comedy shows society’s taboos in a satirical manner and lets the viewers imagine a similar life without the rules of society. Hollywood’s long list of black comedy shows includes Adam Reed’s Archer, which was released in 2009 and became an instant hit. Scroll down to know what this American sitcom is about.
