Assigned to build the sixth branch of the Untied States Armed Forces, Carell, a courageous leader, who does his best to achieve his mission, receiving help from a group of people, the thing that challenges him.
Actor Steve Carell and creator Greg Daniels take a handful of winning ingredients -- an enigmatic cast, tautly-written physical comedy, ever so slightly daring jabs at those higher up -- and puts them in a zany, compelling new setting.
The massive irony is that this [Space Force] doesn't seem like it has some grandiose plan either. But it's telling of its team's charisma that despite many things going wrong, Space Force is still a success.
In a lot of ways Space Force is a lot like the real thing; flashy and expensive and something you can't look away from. There's no denying it's not as funny as it should be and not as emotional impactful as it wants to be.
So strange and ill-conceived and ill-timed that not even Carell's avuncular bonhomie can save it. For all its cinematic trappings, Space Force is a series with a single joke running through it, and that joke is American idiocy.
