Space Force (TV series)

I had high hopes for Space Force. After all, it was created by Greg Daniels and Steve Carell.

An easy hit.  Making fun of Trump’s egomaniacal Space Force.

But 40% on Rotten Tomatoes sounds about right. It’s lightweight. Fluff, not parody. And not funny enough to call a comedy.

I blame the writers. 

Cast is excellent. Comedic acting good.

John Malkovich makes the show worth watching.  He got me through the 10 episodes.

Malkovich, like Bill Murray, can do no wrong in my book.  I can’t not not watch those two on screen.

The late, great Fred Willard plays Steve Carell’s father.  Hilarious, as always.

Certainly there are some excellent moments.  But too few.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.
