What You Need To Know:

SPACE FORCE is a lackluster Netflix original series focused on the newest American mil-itary branch, the Space Force. The man in charge is four-star General Mark Naird, played by Steve Carell. General Naird and his adviser are tasked with getting Americans on the moon by 2024. During the first season, General Naird hits many bumps in the road as peo-ple try to prevent the Space Force from succeeding. The Space Force isn’t liked by the oth-er military branches and members of the government. General Naird faces hardships not only on home soil, but also from foreign soil when China tries to beat the United States to the moon.

SPACE FORCE misses the mark on being even the tiniest bit funny. The scripts are poorly written. Not even the veteran cast can get a joke to land. Sadly, this workplace comedy has all the right pieces to be funny, but settles on lackluster digs at the current political climate. The first season of SPACE FORCE contains lots of gratuitous foul language and politically correct content promoting radical feminism, environmentalism, open marriage, and LGBT issues.

More Detail:

SPACE FORCE is a lackluster, offensive Netflix original come-dy series focused on the newest branch of the military, the Space Force, that’s headed by four-star General Mark Naird, played by Steve Carell. General Naird is transitioned from the Air Force to the Space Force and is tasked with getting American boots on the moon by 2024. This workplace comedy capitalizes on the United States’ current political climate and sadly doesn’t merit even a chuckle, with lots of foul language, brief marijuana usage and strong politically correct content promoting radical feminism, environmentalism, open mar-riage, and LGBT issues.

The first 10 episodes follow General Naird and his advisor, Dr. Adrian Mallory (John Malkovich), as they work out the kinks in this new military branch. During the first season, General Naird hits lots of bumps in the road as people try to prevent the Space Force from succeeding.

The Space Force isn’t liked by the other military branches and some members of the gov-ernment. General Naird faces hardships not only on home soil, but from foreign soil as China also embarks to beat the United States to the moon. Set in present day, the Space Force is supposed to have four years to get Americans back on the moon. That process is now expedited with the Chinese threat.

SPACE FORCE completely misses the mark on being even the tiniest bit funny. The scripts are poorly written and not even a seasoned cast of actors can get a joke to land. Sad-ly, this workplace comedy has all the right pieces to be funny, but settles on lackluster, crude digs at the current political climate.

The first season of SPACE FORCE has a slew of problems. It contains lots of gratuitous foul language in each episode, many crude political jokes and some brief marijuana use. It also contains strong politically correct content promoting radical feminism, environmental-ism, open marriage, and LGBT issues. Sometimes, there are some moral elements. For ex-ample, a father is shown to love his daughter. Also, a married couple sticks by each other during hard times, but this is later backtracked when it’s revealed they have an open mar-riage. Overall, therefore, most media-wise viewers and families will want to avoid SPACE FORCE, even if they’re fans of Steve Carell’s old sitcom, THE OFFICE.
