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.
Amazon Studios hasn't quite experienced the steamrolling success with originals that Netflix has-so far, Transparent has been its brand-building title. But Catastrophe is elbowing its way in.
Although the second episode didn't live up to the laugh-a-minute pilot, it's certainly no catastrophe. This is one rom-com worth keeping an eye on.
Catastrophe doesn't mock love or the desire for it, but it doesn't deny that relationships, even when they work, can be quite messy.
The show's crass, often filthy jokes are delivered so adroitly they feel elegant instead of juvenile.
