‘Space Force’: TV Review

Where to find it: Netflix

Off the top of my head:

  • Another Greg Daniels show!
    • We watched this before ‘Upload’
    • He’s on fire this year
    • This is a more traditional comedy
  • Give it two to three episodes to find it’s flow
  • Anything that makes fun of something as silly as a Space Force is fine by me
    • No disrespect to anyone actually in the Space Force, but, it is a very silly idea
    • Unless we are fighting aliens…but this show doesn’t go into that
  • Great cast!
    • Steve Carell, John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Lisa Kudrow, Fred Willard
    • With many others simply guest starring (like Patrick Warburton, Noah Emmerich, and Jane Lynch; just to name a few)
  • Like the other two great Greg Daniels series ‘The Office’ and ‘Parks and Rec’, the first season weren’t that great
    • Probably because both ‘The Office’ and ‘Parks and Rec’ only had six episodes each
    • Six episodes doesn’t allow for much breathing room for the story told
    • ‘Space Force’ season 1 is a much better first season 
    • Also, for Netflix, the entire ‘Space Force’ series was probably written before they even started shooting. So, giving ‘Office’ and ‘Parks’ the benefit of the doubt, both of which were on network tv (NBC), the scripts were probably done shortly before they had to shoot unlike most Netflix series where they have the entire season done prior to shooting any episode
    • I thought the story this season told was great.
  • There has to be a second season! 
    • Come on Netflix!

Would I recommend this show: Yes, like I said above, give it a few episodes to get into a groove. You won’t be sorry.
