  • As someone who thoroughly enjoyed Space Force, but also loves Parks & Rec and The Office, I'm glad I had to scroll so far to find someone who agrees with this video. I saw the amount of dislikes and immediately knew I wasn't the only one who found issues with this video. Wisecrack never has 3k dislikes on a video lol.

  • I think the problem may be a little simpler. Everyone in America knows what working at a boring office job is like and has participated in politics at some level, but how space exploration programs work is a pretty big mystery to the general public. In contrast, I can guarantee that any civil engineer has had to calmly explain to a well-meaning manager why their plan will never work, which is an experience that easily maps to a group of scientists having to explain why you cannot fix a satellite with bombs. That scene may be hilarious to civil engineers, but most of the audience has no relatable experiences, so the humor falls a little flat.

  • Well since you asked: Space Force is totally wrong, doomed you might say, from the start. The Office and Parks are stage setting that the everyman can to look down upon with disdain while Space Force in our popular culture is something to look forward to investing a hoped for future. Make fun about things looking back and I might actually laugh with you but riducule things hoped for and you have hit upon a sour note. Not ever funny!

  • I think the hypocrisy and confusion of the characters works well. If anything, it captures the current state of the US. For example there's the fact that, under any president other than Trump, the idea of a "space force" would not have been met with as much ridicule as it was by the predominant liberal media of the country.

  • Thought the show just represented a different office if you will. One of government, war and space. Obviously it’s a little more fiction, but the show had plenty of heart and jokes that landed for me not ground breaking but damn funny.

  • for real, no one gives a shit. its an okay show with good humour even if it stretches the plot at times. its not office 2.0 or parks and rec 2.0 or some ultimate brooklyn nine nine shit. its a stand alone show and you should view it as such. you just expect something entirely different from what it is made for in the first place.

  • I liked the show and I was expecting closer to parks and rec. Anyone who has worked a government job knows the ridiculous way things can work and how you have to make everyone happy and the possibility of your job being made redundant at any time. Not to mention how contracts are handled is such a clusterf*ck and inconsistent

    • Also, having worked in the private and public sectors there's a different feel to both. Comparing this to the office is comparing apples to oranges because space force is in the public sector like parks and rec

  • Absolutely loved this show!! The comedy is actually funny without relying on the old comedy based on looks, gender, sexual preference, etc. One scene that stands out is when Mallory, Fuck Tony, and Brad are talking about how attractive or unattractive historical figures were as we don't get to see very often guys complementing each other's looks

  • I found the roughness of early PaR and The Office to be some of the best episodes. I wish Daniels would lean into that with this as a political satire is a great venue for it. Instead it feels like the softest politically inclined show I've ever seen.

  • I didn't like the show because I found the comedy to be too childish, not because it fails to be an Office part 2. I think the problem is that a lot of people are forming their opinions from comparing it with shows that are totally different to what this is. My problem is with the comedy on the show not the hope of it being something else.

  • I have never seen Parks and Recreation and only a few episodes of The Office, I've never really had the time. Yet I am a fan most of the lead actors in the show. However I found the show to be very very woke and that disappointed me. The humour wasn't funny at all, it's okay to take pot shots at the president once in awhile, but offending the country by making the president look like an idiot full time didn't help the show any. It wasn't funny because it was woke and not for everyone.

  • What went wrong with this review? It didn't understand what Space Force was a satire of, i.e. Military and Government Decision-making/Spending Cultures. As an Army brat who grew up on multiple posts, has a father, brother, and many other relatives and friends in the military, and a former federal government worker, this satire was spot on. I also think it has a lot of bigger lessons on democracy and the problems with our modern political environment in the US. I'm eagerly awaiting season 2 of Space Force.

  • Steve Carroll bailing out rioters was a good reason to lose 1/2 the audience... The Hollywood Studio system made sure their actors kept their BIG FAT MOUTHS SHUT! Actors are paid to entertain not to preach... then the show (watched only episode one) started sprinkle in WOKE “jokes” and each one was a temptation to switch to something else.. Then treating the CCP like a friendly foe - when they intentionally released a global pandemic so they would not be the only country affected - should have impounded the scripts and rethought the show for a reality check.. Bottomline - the 1st Episode came off as just more “Amerikkka was NEVER that great” propaganda for the Socialist Democrat Party in an Election year when 1/2 the potential audience is sick and tired of Hollywood TRASHING our Country, History, Flag, Anthem and Ideals... like putting the 1st Man on the Moon and have Idiots say “So what, we suck”

  • Dude space force was so good that even after watching it for the 7th time,, i'd still laugh at the jokes I've watched parks and recs, as well as the office, and i think that some people just jumped on the idea that Space Force has to pick a corner when its of its own corner. Like i guess the message really is about science and the military working hand in hand for the betterment of humanity (like in episode 3) - isn't that the root of most Greg Daniel shows? Caring about people.

  • Stop talking about The Office, this is not The Office. There never will be another The Office! Space Force, Parks and Rec, Brooklyn 99, Good Place- They are all their own thing, not Office 2, The only thing they have in common is that Michael Schur/Greg Daniels came up with them, its only shows how versitale of a creator he is, that's it. There's no reason to expect the same from each one because they are not supposed to be the same.

    FinnstigatorFinnstigatorIl y a 2 mois
    • Also this review pushes too hard for the idea that every series should try to emulate the successful series that have come before them. For example the "necessity of the everyman character". I don't need an everyman to relate, those are always the most boring characters who nobody quotes or who's actions nobody will be fondly remembering years later. There is just this assumption that this character is needed, because it's always been there and it's said that the audience needs someone to relate to. But does it really? Does it?

  • I liked Space Force. It's breaking new ground, forcing us to think, not making it easy to pick out themes, points, arcs etc. It's more grey, kind of like reality yet a comedy, satire. I really hope it continues and perhaps grows up a bit to better know what it is.

The straight man doesn’t mean they don’t have flaws it just means they’re flaws aren’t often the root of their comedy as opposed to the other characters. Although I don’t find it hilarious, I do think this is actually really good satire, the jokes just don’t hit as much.
