Each performer brought a different quality and skill to the show, with one demonstrating intense character portrayal, another show-stopping vocals and others with unnerving yet memorable prop use. As the scenes mixed and matched the partnerships, the scenes did not feel stale and kept the audience engaged.
The whole-of-ensemble opening and closing pieces were the standouts of the show; however, the interspersed scenes that explored the lives of the budding astronauts brought lots of laughs, the occasional squeamish groan and some scenes you cannot un-see.
‘Space Force’ blended innovative humour with tried and tested sketch show formula, with a scene or two suffering from an over-reliance on explicit language or actions. This considered, these moments were fleeting with quick scene changes throughout the show. If you are a fan of the sketch-show format and like space, then ‘Space Force’ is the show for you.
