From the makers of ‘The Office’ (US), Netflix Presents this farcical series centred around a new government task force; ‘Space Force’ which promises to be the sixth branch of the US armed forces. Four-star General Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell) and Dr Adrian Mallory (John Malkovich) are teamed up to make it work as per the President’s orders. Expect lots of crazy gaffs and not much subtlety, they’ve really gone for it with the all-star cast and special effects with some big names in production but some critics have deemed it a poor attempt to reach out with satire and fall short. Too harsh? Good or dud? Let us know what you thought of it in the comments below.

Whether you’ve been a fan since the beginning of eighties hit family sitcom ‘Full House’ or you only joined the gang with the newer spin-off/sequel series ‘Fuller House’, you’ll no doubt be sad to know that after four years and five seasons of the latter, ‘Full House’ is coming to an end in 2020. The fifth and final season is split into two parts with the first part landing in December 2019. The final episodes will arrive on Tuesday 2nd June. It’s bound to be an emotional farewell – gosh the trailer nearly had us in tears! If you have no idea what we’re talking about then, boy have you got a lot of catching up to do. Start back in 1987 through to 1995 then reunite with the adult Tanner fam in 2016 by the time you reach 2020 you’ll be as sad to see them go as anyone.
