Heat" review by Suzanne
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.
Airs now on Netflix
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.
