Rush reference on season 3 finale of FX's Archer
1:26AM EST | comments (7) |

There was yet another Rush reference on FX's Archer during last night's Season 3 finale Space Race: Part 2 (thanks to Eric at Power Windows for the heads up). In this episode the mural on Krieger's van gets updated with a Caress of Steel-themed mural with the lettering reading Caress of Krieger (screenshot here). This makes the 3rd such Rush-themed mural that has appeared on his van; on the finale of season 2 the van had an Exit ... Stage Left-inspired mural which read Exit ... Van Left (screenshot here), and earlier in season 3 the mural had been updated to a Rush Hemispheres theme (screenshot here). There was also a major Rush reference on episode 8 of season 3 just a few weeks ago. In that episode Kreiger is trying to learn YYZ on his Neil Peart-inspired drumkit.

@#5 - LOVE it!

@#3 - TV series website: link
The character Dr. Krieger is "an avid devotee of the Canadian rock band Rush, going so far as to having an expansive, many-pieced drum set installed in his small apartment in an attempt to master their song "YYZ" (which Krieger insists be pronounced in the Canadian style as "why-why-zed")." (Wikipedia). Unfortunately they mispronounced Neil's last name in that episode, but a great reference nonetheless!
There have been more and more RUSH references as the season progressed :)

I bet the inside of the van smells like a skunk!

Archer was a good show before they put RUSH in every episode. Now it's the best show ever created.

Any one know if Krieger's van has Power Windows?
