Seeing and Believing 251 | Netflix’s Space Force and Josephine Decker’s Shirley
Buckle up for terrible space puns, because they’re in plentiful supply in today’s episode. Wade and Kevin tackle Space Force, the new comedy series from Netflix, Greg Daniels, and Steve Carell. With Carell taking on the clenched jaw and jingoism of the first commander of America’s fledgling outer-space military program, this series takes a stab at transplanting the workplace antics of The Office into a top-secret military installation. The guys also go on a voyage into the mind of famed writer Shirley Jackson with Josephine Decker’s unconventional biopic about her, starring Elisabeth Moss.
