The Catch

Critics Consensus

While the jury is out on its weekly worthiness, The Catch largely yields satisfying results with tried-and-true Shondaland production qualities, fun cases of the week, and bendy plot twists.

Critic Reviews for The Catch Season 1

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (22)

If the playful pilot is any indication, the lineup's already established Thursday-night audience is in for a treat.

Aug 8, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

[The Catch] is a fun romp into unchartered territory that will allow them to escape their otherwise stressful lives for an hour.

Enos and the never out-of-work Krause make for two very attractive protagonists.

Top Critic

The Catch... thrives on sophisticated skulduggery, fun stars and swank clothes, homes and offices.

Mar 21, 2016 | Full Review…

ABC's The Catch, fresh off the Shonda Rhimes assembly line, doesn't steal that marvelous line from the 1999 remake of The Thomas Crown Affair, but it nicks everything else. And that's not a complaint.

Mar 25, 2016 | Full Review…

As far as introductions go, this one's polished and playful enough to warrant a more extensive investigation.

Mar 24, 2016 | Full Review…

The Catch has all the ingredients for success. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…

The Catch feels like a lighter version of what we're used to seeing on the TGIT line-up, which is a nice change of pace.

Jun 20, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

The Catch is a soft-boiled sexy caper that, like most Shondaland productions, is plenty of fun.

Sep 25, 2016 | Full Review…

The Catch contains all the ingredients we've come to expect from the folks at Shondaland: glossy production values, a diverse cast, hyper-articulate dialogue, hairpin plot twists and lots of eye candy and writhing hips.

Mar 22, 2016 | Full Review…

As light entertainment, the show flies by pretty quickly, a good fit for the #TGIT playground. And The Catch does have Enos, which may be all the weight it needs.

Mar 21, 2016 | Full Review…

Even with a great initial hook and an incredibly polished pilot, The Catch will need to evolve if it wants to last as long as some of its predecessors.
