We got our first request from Space Force for a NALO flight last week. Pretty awesome seeing that. 😂

I finished watching the series yesterday. It wasn't great but I think the reviewer expects a little too much from a comedy.
Agreed of the reviewer. I’m a couple episodes in. It’s alright. But some of the military humor falls flat.

Also, no way a 4-star USAF command rated pilot would wear his dress twilights around the office all day. He would be in a space bag w/ leather flight jacket for sure.

Agree with the resounding "meh". I think a lot of people expected a politicized version of the office and it just isn't that. Not that anything could hold a candle to that cult...

I've never cared much for the Offices humor crutch of "how awkward can Steve Carell be?" So this half and half of idiot/then pull my head out of my ass for the episode conclusion with a lesson, isn't terrible.

Just as forgettable as a lot of Netflix stuff.

Just as Gene Roddenberry envisioned it.
Honestly, it's probably preferable to having them focus-group some bullshit that's going to end up as the rank-structure equivalent of NWU Type Is. I mean, even the RAF came perilously close to fucking it away, and that was 100 years ago and the last time any substantive English-speaking ranks got invented. "Ardian?" Really?

Edit: And even then, now the entire Commonwealth has this weird thing going on where Pilot Officers aren't pilots, Squadron Leaders aren't squadron COs, Wing Commanders don't command wings, and so forth.

A lot like how naval ranks in Spanish don't exactly line up either (a ship-of-the-line captain commands a frigate, a frigate captain commands a patrol boat, a corvette captain gets... a department... I think?).

German, too, and I assume French.

It’s a hard day when you have to tell your family you got passed over for Banneret...again. 😫
