Make no mistake about it; Netflix’s simple beginnings as a simple DVD-by-mail service has mutated into one of the world’s most despicable liberal propaganda machines.
The gargantuan streaming service dishes out in mass to its subscribers.
But Netflix just got a rude awakening after critics decimated this President Trump-hating show.
It’s called the United States Space Force (USSF), a brand new space warfare service branch of the U.S. Armed Forces, and is the sixth branch, an antecedent of the Air Force Space Command, which was set up by former President Ronald Reagan during his administration.
President Trump first spoke about the idea of this new division in a March 2018 speech. By June, Trump met with the National Space Council to direct the Department of Defense to immediately begin the process of establishing the new service.
And on December 20th 2019, Space Force officially became the youngest branch of the military, wherein about 16,000 active duty Air Force personnel will be gradually reassigned to the new branch over the course of the next eighteen months.
In fact, Hollywood hated the idea of it so much that Netflix went forward with a workplace situational comedy multicamera sitcom coincidentally called “Space Force” to capitalize on the liberals’ skepticism.
“Space Force” was co-created by Michael Scott himself, Steve Carell, and also co-creator of “The Office,” Greg Daniels. The plot features Carrell as a newly ranked four-star general who has just been assigned to take charge of the Space Force. The show also features Ben Schwartz, Lisa Kudrow, and Hollywood legend John Malkovich.
It would stand to reason; given the cast and creators, this has the makings to be a pretty good show, right?
Your assumption couldn’t be further from the truth.
Netflix’s “Space Force” was released on Friday and it’s even worse than anybody could have possibly imagined.
Carrell is jaw-droppingly embarrassing trying to portray a four-star general. Even worse, Carrell attempted to use a gravelly voice to seem more realistic, but it only makes it ring even more false, especially because he doesn’t maintain it throughout his performance.
Renowned television critics absolutely decimated the new show too.
Tom Long of Detroit News wrote, “’Space Force,’ we do not have lift off.”
Roger Moore of Movie Nation said, “Like a politically-pointed all-star “Saturday Night Live” sketch that never made it on the air — five hours worth.”
Who wants to see that?
Willa Paskin of Slate called it “shockingly unfunny for a show made by people who are so talented.”
But the best review that perfectly encapsulates how awful “Space Force” truly is came from Robert Lloyd of the Los Angeles Times who wrote, “Lashings of technobabble aside, none of the practical or scientific material in the show seems remotely true or plausible, especially the speed at which things are supposed to happen.”
It’s refreshing to see a bigtime Hollywood company’s desperate attempt at mocking President Trump completely blow up in their faces.
In the pilot episode, they mock President Trump – albeit not by name – that he created Space Force because he wants “boots on the moon” by 2024. But the general acknowledges that he could’ve misspelled “boobs.” That’s it. That’s the joke. These kinds of lame “jokes” are littered all over the place in Netflix’s “Space Force.”
At one point, Carrell pantomime sings – what seems like – the entire Beach Boys song “Kokomo” in order to cope with the unbelievable amount of stress he’s under. It’s also, you guessed it, not funny.
It looks like Netflix needs to re-evaluate its liberal propaganda moving forward or they’ll lose millions of subscribers in the near future.
