After The Good Place, it feels like we’ve seen a spike of ‘big idea’ comedies that look a lot more expensive than traditional sitcoms. In 2020 we’ve had HBO’s space station-based Avenue 5, which kicked off with such a disappointing opening episode that I didn’t continue with it, and Amazon Prime’s Upload, set in a digital afterlife where niceties are bought with microtransactions. 

In Netflix’s Space Force, which shares Upload’s creator, Greg Daniels, General Mark Naird (Steve Carell) is put in charge of the titular new armed forces branch. Can America successfully conquer the stars?
