Critic Reviews for Catastrophe: Season 1

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (17)

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.

May 24, 2017 | Full Review…

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.

New Zealand Herald

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.

December 3, 2015 | Full Review…

The show's crass, often filthy jokes are delivered so adroitly they feel elegant instead of juvenile.

Top Critic

Catastrophe is hilarious, dirty, quick, and very satisfying-not unlike the sex lives of its protagonists.

Top Critic

Catastrophe has its sweet moments but balances them against more outrageous comedy -- including a hilariously ugly, profane discussion of childbirth in the series premiere -- resulting in a thoroughly entertaining series.
