Pacific Heat Review: Netflix Animated Comedy Is No 'Archer' - IndieWire - by Indiewire
I know, I know. It’s early. And Foxtel may not give “Pacific Heat” the same budget as FX gave “Archer” back in the day. But what’s on screen just doesn’t cut the mustard these days. There’s barely any dimensionality within the frame, characters look too similar, and the expressions are so neutral they rely on the actors to sell a lot of the emotion through their voice work. “Archer” has always been appealing while pushing the boundaries of what it can do.

The jokes are mostly obvious, as is characteristic of the average comedy pilot. The comedic template the show establishes is not inviting or warm, but rather too eager to traffic in uncomfortably stereotypical Asian jokes and exaggerated accents. The characters are thinly sketched (literally) and unconvincing. Prickly, in-your-face comedy is possible and necessary, but so is audience empathy.

And the other challenge was that I’m so used to worrying about different accents and which part of the world they come from and which part of an individual country they come from, but the best part is once you animate the voice it’s like a magic trick. The voice becomes twice as much like the animation as it does in the audio studio. I reckon there’s a couple of my voices that were supposed to be separated by a thousand miles but they sounded like they were in the same zip code. But when they were animated they looked like they were in different universes.
