Critic Reviews for Catastrophe Season 1

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (19)

[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.

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.

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.

What's best about Catastrophe is how engaging the characters of Rob and Sharon are, and how quickly we come to root for them

Jun 22, 2015 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

Catastrophe, thank God, hasn't morphed into a cuddly family sitcom where the kids get their share of unlikely witty lines.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

The leads are hugely likeable and well-defined, with a chemistry that's a joy to watch.

Aug 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The naturalness that it gives off and the chemistry between the two actors hooks that gives pleasure and causes the chapters to fly by. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 15, 2018 | Full Review…

The comedy never gets too heavy even when age, unemployment, exes or fatal life-threatening diseases become a part of the conversation... trust me, the show is never a bummer.
