Space Force: Netflix’s Series is Just as Unnecessary as the Real Thing

When I first heard that Greg Daniels, the creator of the U.S. version of The Office, would be re-teaming with Steve Carell to make a series on Netflix based upon President Donald Trump’s proposition for a new branch of the military called the Space Force, I was really excited. The Office is my all-time favorite comedy show, and I was excited to see Daniels and Carell work together again on something new. From the sounds of the premise, there seemed to be a lot of potential for a new hilarious workspace comedy mixed with some strong political commentary.

The first season of Space Force, comprised of 10 episodes, dropped on Netflix on May 29, which I watched in one sitting to prepare for this review. Space Force is not a bad show; it’s just rather dull. The characters are not very interesting, the story isn’t that compelling, and there aren’t many jokes that land. It is not an insufferable show, but it isn’t one I could recommend. I certainly wouldn’t recommend watching the whole thing in one sitting.

The series follows Mark Naird (Carell), a four star general who has been appointed to run the newly created Space Force. He works closely with his top scientist, Dr. Adrian Mallory (John Malkovich), to solve different problems and compete with other countries for control over outer space.
