Critic Reviews for Catastrophe: Season 1

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (17)

It's a smart premise, niftily jumbling the conventional timeline of romantic relationships on screen.

November 6, 2018 | Full Review…

[Catastrophe] has built a wickedly funny comedy around two people trying really hard, who seem to be falling in love with each other despite all logic.

Catastrophe is hilarious, dirty, quick, and very satisfying-not unlike the sex lives of its protagonists.

Top Critic

It's a really likable romantic comedy that takes a lot of familiar material and smartens it up, gives it intimacy; it dodges all of the TV-ized clichés that can turn scripted love into a Ping -Pong game of witticisms and snark.

July 14, 2015 | Full Review…

The funniest sequence by far was a painful dinner party towards the end in which Sharon and Rob found mutual solace in hating someone else... In the face of a common enemy suddenly two people spouting bawdy one-liners became a couple.

June 30, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It is side-splittingly honest: About love, anger, attraction, aging, pregnancy, and "sex musk." It is also, not coincidentally, the finest and funniest new comedy of the year.
