Critic Reviews for Catastrophe Season 4

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (19)

Season 4 feels like the rom-com we need during the Trump years.

Mar 21, 2019 | Full Review…
Top Critic

It's as gorgeous and transcendent a finale as the series deserves.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

"Catastrophe" will be remembered for its courage - not only by saying what others were only thinking, but for defending those thoughts and actions as a representation of real love.

Mar 18, 2019 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
Top Critic

Catastrophe captured the daily texture of a marriage built on love, mean-spirited humour, clear-eyed cynicism, a deep and precise knowledge of each other's flaws, and constant, low-level fear.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

There are so many things to love about Catastrophe, not least the way it pays attention to the smallest details in the matter of relationships.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

For a show that came on so strong, it's a curious but also brilliantly quiet way to go.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

It's often snobby and more than occasionally mean. It has a thin, subtle story, and lacks memorable set pieces.

Jan 30, 2020 | Full Review…

And yet their pain, manifested in family tragedy and fractious arguments about career and sex, brings us vicarious pleasure as Rob and Sharon wound, then cling to each other out of shared need and a desire to make the other happy.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

And as much as these two may look like they're in trouble, the heart of this show has always been the tenderness that's clearly brimming under the surface of the acerbic wit of their unfiltered relationship.

Dec 9, 2019 | Full Review…

As its characters have grown so has the show, becoming more meditative and complex, though it never loses the raw honesty that made it so excellent in the first place.

Apr 21, 2019 | Full Review…

While I enjoy Catastrophe, I'm not sure the show has ever done something that hit me as hard as its final scene.

Mar 18, 2019 | Full Review…

The final season of Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney's foul-mouthed romance is so lovely you don't want it to end. That's an increasingly rare feeling in television.

Audience Reviews for Catastrophe: Season 4

  • Jul 12, 2020
    Catastrophe is equal parts laughter and tears. The finale deserved all the awards! Sharon Horgan is a genius so it's not surprising that she and Rob Delaney could create and deliver a masterpiece.
  • Apr 09, 2020
    Wish I'd stopped watching before the end of this series. Started off so strong.
  • Apr 13, 2019
    Catastrophe reaches a fine (not fantastic) conclusion, in a final season that has plenty of the series strength from past seasons, but lacks the oomph needed for more substantial merit. Sharon and Rob continue to have great chemistry, which still works, but they often bog down other character arcs in the show to irrelevance. Catastrophe also doesn't quite give enough insights into the troubles of parenthood, at least not until this season's second half, which could have really hit a stride for this final year. The ending does manage to be heartfelt, and sends off Carrie Fisher in a tactful manner. Can't compete with the also recently concluded You're the Worst, but Catastrophe's method of sticking to its guns still pulls it off (just not in flying colors or anything).

    I loved seasons 1-3 but season 4 bombed. First, only six episodes. Seriously? Second, it had no plot or development, and there was barely a storyline. Simply terrible!

    Loved seasons one through three. Hated season four. Terrible.
