Catastrophe: Season 4 Reviews

Page 1 of 2
December 9, 2019
For a show that came on so strong, it's a curious but also brilliantly quiet way to go.
July 23, 2019
Few other shows have honoured the fullness of romantic love in all its complications with the same level of radical honesty.
April 21, 2019
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.

See it and weep. Whether it's with laughter or with sadness will probably come down to which way you're tilting your head at the time.

Season 4 feels like the rom-com we need during the Trump years.
March 20, 2019
It's as gorgeous and transcendent a finale as the series deserves.
March 18, 2019
"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.

While I enjoy Catastrophe, I'm not sure the show has ever done something that hit me as hard as its final scene.
March 18, 2019
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.
March 15, 2019
An arresting final season closes one of TV's best series, though its breakneck narrative pace and curious final scene only leave us wanting more.

The fourth and final season of Catastrophe may not be its best... but it's the most affecting, thanks to the cumulative weight the series has built up.
March 14, 2019
"Catastrophe," it is clear, refers not to a single occurrence but to a state of being - the chaos of life, which this comedy depicts with deadly honest charm.
March 11, 2019
It's not a spoiler to say the show ends quite appropriately, as it begins: with dangerous, devil-may-care action that may or may not result in a disaster better known as love.
March 7, 2019
It is also always perfectly paced at every level; from the movement of a whole six-episode series, to every half-hour within it, down to the exquisite escalation - and, often even more perfectly, de-escalation - of their many marital rows.

March 7, 2019
While Catastrophe has always been good at the big stuff - death, dementia, addiction, infidelity, all dusted off with bracing frankness - it is a pleasure to see it being more straightforwardly silly.

Season four feels like the right time for the show to end.
March 7, 2019
As Catastrophe season four unfolds, fans will find themselves dying at the exquisitely timed jokes, but this time with a little more appreciation for the craft at hand.
February 15, 2019
Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney seem to have decided that four series of their sublimely delusion-free comedy about modern marriage are enough. They're so wrong.
February 13, 2019
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.
January 23, 2019
So, the formula may be a reliable one, but no one could call Catastrophe predictable.
