Netflix’s Space Force Has Three Fandoms Colliding And Fans Are Going Crazy With The Expectations.
The word ‘spectacular’ isn’t used easily to describe a show that hasn’t even been released yet. But words like ‘spectacular’ ‘wonderful’ ‘amazing’ are definitely in the category of words Netflix’s new show Space Force is being combined with. Space Force is a work-place comedy with some big names involved in creating it. So, the anticipation around the show is understandably building by the minute as Netflix prepares to release it to the world on May 29.
Already in the tracks of becoming a pop culture phenomenon, Space Force has given us the gift of mixing a lot of our favourite fandoms together. And here is exactly how this amalgamation was born.
- Space Force: The force to reckon with
- The cast of Space Force where fandoms collide
- What can we expect from Netflix’s Space Force
Space Force: The Force To Reckon With
If you want one reason to understand what the hype around Space Force is, I will give you one very solid reason: Greg Daniels has created Space Force and he is also the guy who created The Office. An already predicted pop-culture phenomenon led by Steve Carell will be a workplace comedy giving it only the more reason to look forward to it. Space Force is inspired from last year’s event when the president of the Unites States Donald Trump announced that the American Military is expanding into a final frontier with a newly created branch.
Greg Daniels was the first to board the space ship and create a show on this widely named event and the rest they say is history. In Space Force we see Oscar and Emmy nominated actor Steve Carell playing Mark R. Naird who is a devoted, prim, and proper Air Force General and his mission? On the Moon by 2024!
The Cast of Space Force Where Fandoms Collide
Greg Daniels the co-creator of Space Force alongside Steve Carell has another shiny notch in his belt other than The Office. Parks and Recreation was also created by him and is probably the reason why we have cast from all over the Television starring in Space Force. Just off the top, we have Lisa Kudrow (who does not need an introduction) bringing herself into this comedy mix and getting all the Friends fans excited for it. Ben Schwartz from Park and Rec’s fandom is also marked a regular in the series.
This is a gift from Netflix to us. A culmination of Friends-The Office-Parks and Rec dynamic threesome who have played some of the most eccentric and iconic and fan-favourite characters on their respective shows. We can already feel the chemistry burning past the boiling point. Also joining the cast of Space Force are acclaimed actors like John Malkovich, Diana Silvers, recently passed away actor Fred Willard, Jimmy O Yang.
What Can We Expect From Space Force
I think we can expect a reckoning force of TV excellence. It’s pretty clear by now that the expectations running with Space Force are extremely high and why won’t they be? The actors in it are astoundingly great at their craft, it’s created by a TV veteran like Greg Daniels and Netflix has produced the show fully on the writing’s merit and Steve Carell’s ability to lead a show on his comedic timing and unmatched connect to his audience.
In the trailer, we see a very confused, baffled, and outrageously out of place, Carell stumbles on being the Boss (much like Michael Scott) when the President announces to expand the control of the military in space. And in another scene, as a prototype catches fire, Steve’s character, Air Force General Mark R. Naird asks his colleague how much that cost and his colleague answers “That is the cost of 4 middle schools- Sir”. This is exactly the type of satire and indirect political commentary that hasn’t been explored in this space before (pun intended) and is set to make its mark on our minds and correct me if I’m wrong- might just start a conversation.
Space Force is available on Netflix on May 29 and the dates on the calendar are not moving fast enough. Are you excited for the show? Let us know in the comments below!
