Pacific Heat cast 

"Pacific Heat" review by Suzanne 12/3/16
Airs now on Netflix

This show is a lot like "Archer" on FX, except that it's not as funny, and it's a lot more racist. Maybe that's because it's from Australia. I just didn't like it very much.

It's also not quite as violent as "Archer," but it may get worse. Whereas "Archer" gives you a wink at how clever it is, this one seems to assume that the audience is stupid. Of course, I could just be too old to enjoy it. 13 year old boys might like it.

Frankly, I don't like any of the original comedies I've seen on Netflix. I think they do drama and scifi much better. I'm thinking that if a comedy script is really funny, the broadcast or cable networks will buy it first before Netflix can even see it.


Pacific Heat is an animated comedy series based on the exploits of a dynamic unit of undercover police investigators working on the glitzy “Gold Coast” of Australia. This glamorous, sophisticated, and sun-drenched paradise masks a hot-bed of crime; everyone from drug smugglers and biker gangs to eco-terrorists and the person who invented frozen yogurt. In order to tackle this seedy underbelly police authorities established “PacificHeat.” This covert squad of highly trained operatives technically does not exist (although they do have their own Facebook page), but when criminals strike, Pacific Heat will be there; unconventional, uncompromising and unafraid to operate outside the law – provided at least one of them is wearing a fluorescent safety vest. PacificHeat was created by the award-winning Working Dog team of Santo Cilauro, Tom Gleisner and Rob Sitch.
