Is Netflix’s new show Space Force any good? Is it worth watching? Is it anything like The Office US? These are all reasonable and plausible questions that we’re going to try answer, just keep reading.
What Is Space Force About?
Space Force is the story of the people behind developing a new branch of the USA military: Space Force.
A group with the rather vague mission of protecting America’s interests in space. Such as colonising the moon and protecting satellites from foreign attack.
If this sounds rather silly, that’s because it’s meant to.
The show is based around Donald Trump’s announcement of creating this new division and serves as a huge satirical show basically taking the piss out of the entire idea.

Is Space Force Like The Office US?
No, quite frankly it is not. Despite being made by Steve Carrell and the people behind The Office US, Space Force feels like something entirely separate.
It’s not a mockumentary, it’s not following the day to day lives in an office and there’s no classic looking at the camera when something funny happens.
Don’t expect Pam or Jim to show up basically.
However, Space Force has the same sense of satirical humour and feel while feeling like a much larger budget type of show, taking a very different direction to The Office.
This doesn’t mean The Office fans won’t like this show. It’s got a similar amount of heart, loveable characters and of course Steve Carrell.

Is Space Force Worth Watching?
It’s fair to say the show is currently receiving a mixed bag of reviews.
It seems critics aren’t keen but general audiences seem to be enjoying it for what it is.
Space Force may end up being something people love and others not so much.
This is probably due to the specific type of satirical humour and silliness that it’s constantly pushing, humour that not everyone enjoys.
If you wanted to take our word for it, we think it’s great. Space Force has charisma, heart and humour. Everything we look for in this kind of programme.
The plot is are rather stupid yet simple, the characters are entertaining and grow on you each episode.
Put simply, it’s a show you can put on and enjoy without having to think too much. Perfect if you’re in a silly mood. And with people not doing too much lately, it’s definitely worth checking out.
So Should You Watch Netflix’s Space Force?
Don’t be put off by bad reviews. It isn’t The Office, nothing will be as good as The Office, let’s be honest. However, Space Force is worth watching, especially for the laughs and a good dose of Steve Carrell. Give it a watch, see if it’s for you and go from there.
