Stop taking it so seriously. Lighten up!!
One thing I cannot stand about today's entertainment is that politics seem to be taking over everything... HOWEVER, Space Force does it right. Slightly left leaning but still takes a few jabs at the left. The jabs at both sides are light hearted and in my opinion shouldn't offend anyone. If you're going to do political satire it's best not to let one side take all the blows. I think there is a great balance in this show and the jokes don't completely ridicule someone's opinion (okay it goes pretty hard at the idea of a Space Force but seriously, lighten up). Yes it makes fun of the current administration, but it's little things that everyone can laugh at. Besides, there were obvious hits at AOC and Pelosi as well.
No, it's not The Office in any way, shape, or form, and not all the jokes land on their feet, but I recall watching the first season of The Office feeling it was a 7 at best. It just took some time to understand the characters and humor and I think it'll be the same for Space Force.
My advice is go in without thinking of The Office, without thinking of Michael Scott, and don't take the political SATIRE to heart...
