You might've noticed that Pacific Heat, the new Netflix original series premiering today, looks a lot like Archer, FX's 2-D superspy hit. Like Archer, this Australian import wields a bold-lined animation style, a group of bumbling heroes, and a quick-witted sense of humor that hinges on bickering. The main characters are even undercover cops, a job that feels only like a slight deviation from Sterling Archer's.
