Q-Force is an animated show which is about a secret agent and his team of LGBTQ+ spies who go on an exceptional and dangerous quest. When the trailer of Q-Force was uploaded on YouTube, it created a commotion on social media because the animation studio failed to present the actual motive of the show, and it was presented as an outrageous collection of LGBTQ+ stereotypes and flat jokes. But when the series was released, it was not as disappointing as it was shown in the trailer.
In spite of the fact the show was different than the trailer, the critics have given their opinion they have called this “A failed opportunity to present the LGBTQ+ community.” Because the jokes are from a generation back and the audience will consider them offensive and disrespectful towards the LGBTQ+ community. The show would have been better if they tried to work on the show’s plot instead of presenting bland and half-baked jokes.
Other critics have criticized this show because the crew is missing the force which can bring them together, and it fails to capture the audience even though they have done an outstanding individual performance. The show has also been criticized for its plot, and it has been called “unprogressive” and “lazy,” as a result, this show can not create a big audience or a massive fan following of the show. The voice actors of the show are not very talented either, and their voices do not match the show’s characters.
Although some shows are slow and pick their pace from the second or third episode, it can not be said in the case of this show. The show’s audience has given negative reviews as well, primarily because of the voice acting and stereotypical jokes about the LGBTQ+ community. Overall, this show is not worth watching because this show is about heterosexual people making fun of the LGBTQ+ community.
