May 22, 2020
Horgan and Delaney have written all three seasons, which helps explain why they're so good on-screen together.
November 25, 2019
It's truly an incredible, funny, sad, challenging and irreverent British comedy.
October 30, 2019
With every episode, Horgan and Delaney deepen their bond as a married couple while playfully jabbing each other in their charming way.
July 29, 2019
With its perverse insights into relationships, delusion and self-destructiveness, Catastrophe gets both funnier and grimmer with each season.
September 6, 2018
There's the same immaculate intertwining of filth and tenderness, and the same ability to treat its characters in a way that's both unsparing and sympathetic.
August 7, 2018
That the comedy - like many comedies right now, it frequently leans towards tragedy - has sustained itself way beyond its original premise is a credit to the acidity and frankness of the writing.
July 9, 2018
Catastrophe has no compassion. It hooks you, you fall in love, you see yourself reflected in its protagonists too often. And then, it breaks your heart. [Full Review in Spanish]
July 5, 2018
Here, Catastrophe does what few other sitcoms take the time to do: fully humanize its father figure.
December 29, 2017
... Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney's comedy has progressed on to the better-travelled terrain of modern marriage, and parent-hood, and careers. You'd think that would make it stale, but it doesn't at all.
December 29, 2017
The drama is still there, but it unfolds in a far less predictable, far more relatable manner.

December 29, 2017
While season three in its whole was a remarkably bleak six episodes, the humor persisted, none more so than in Sharon and Rob finding amusement in one another.

But the final episode of the third season was able to blend Catastrophe's tonal shifts perfectly. It was funny and sweet, but also dark and real.

This works so well with Catastrophe - along with its ongoing subtle nods to Breaking Bad - that it can only be a matter of time before every other show on television drafts in a little bit of Brexit to up their game, too.
December 28, 2017
[Rob Delaney] furrows, he cringes, he puckers, he beams, he glowers. It's like watching the bear emoji flawlessly impersonate all the other emoji.
December 28, 2017
It remains, through these six new episodes, an absolute delight.
December 28, 2017
It is a credit to the writer-performing duo of Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan that, while the show has becomes a huge hit in the US, they make no concession to the down-at-heel language and wholly convincing rhythms.
December 28, 2017
Catastrophe's greatest asset is its verisimilitude. Sh-- happens, and while it'd be easy to go for maximum drama, Catastrophe has always gone for maximum honesty.
December 28, 2017
It rarely outright articulates love in a manner so plain and forthright. But this is an earned moment, one that comes after six episodes of very funny chaos and very fraught uncertainty that's part and parcel of the work that comes with love.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 28, 2017
So there was plenty there, and yet Catastrophe's third incarnation somehow didn't quite span the chasm between the fleet-footed, light-heeled, potty-mouthed sex comedy and angst-ridden drama about midlife neuroses
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 28, 2017
Three seasons in, the brilliance of Amazon's unbelievably funny Catastrophe, is in how it makes perceptible the kinds of relationship-related details that are often least visible. Ever
