Irresistible Trailer

Jon Stewart used to be a welcome voice of reason in the world of politics as the host of The Daily Show. After leaving the news satire program on Comedy Central, he’s mostly been laying low, but now he’s back in the political arena again, this time as a writer/director with a new comedy about the convoluted and perplexing election process in the United States.

Irresistible follows Steve Carell, himself a former correspondent of The Daily Show, as Democratic political consultant who tries to turn a retired Marine colonel (Chris Cooper) into a mayoral candidate in a small Wisconsin town. This gets the attention of the national Republican party, and they bring in their own consultant in the form of Carell’s rival, played by Rose Byrne (Bridesmaids). And that’s when the game of politics really heats up in the new Irresistible trailer. Read More »

Space Force Season 2

Netflix released the entire first season of the new comedy series Space Force this past weekend. The debut didn’t fare too well with critics, landing only a 39% critical score on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as a disappointed review from yours truly, but the audience score is currently at 76% with over 750 ratings so far. Regardless of the reception, co-creator Greg Daniels is hoping to get a few more seasons to play around with the antics of the newest branch of the military tasked with getting boots on the moon, especially since the first season concludes with a couple big cliffhangers.

Space Force Review

The last time actor Steve Carell and writer/producer Greg Daniels teamed up, it resulted in The Office on NBC, a show that initially stumbled in the shadow of its British predecessor but became one of the greatest television comedies of the 21st century.  Now Carell and Daniels have ventured out on their own with Space Force, an original workplace comedy coming to Netflix that takes a cue from the real life creation of a space warfare branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. Unfortunately, while the series literally shoots for the moon, it has a hard time staying focused in a number of ways, from a fluctuating, inconsistent comedic tone to meandering, insignificant sideplots. It’s not a complete mess, but it certainly doesn’t feel ready for launch. Read More »

Space Force Trailer

The Space Force is very much a real thing that the current presidential administration somehow thinks is important and necessary. It’s also a solid concept for comedy, or at least that’s what Netflix thought when they picked up the aptly titled Space Force series from The Office co-creator Greg Daniels and the show’s former star and producer Steve Carell. Unfortunately, the first Space Force trailer makes the show look like as much of a shitshow as the idea of creating a real Space Force. Read More »
