Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

The celebrity-filled, adult-oriented animated Netflix comedy is the first TV series to feature an (almost) all LGBTQA+ crack pot spy team. It also features some likable characters, and a few lighthearted moments. Despite these details, Q-Force lacks the smart, sharp writing necessary to transcend or transform into witty social commentary the endless array of common, decades-old stereotypes it relies on for laughs. Furthermore, the homophobic and sexist slurs uttered by straight, male military operatives are so rude that there's nothing humorous about them. Some folks may find it funny and irreverent, but the overall show does little to improve LGBTQ+ representation in entertainment media.
