This is hands down my all-time favorite sitcom.
Rob, a New York executive, has a brief affair with Sharon, a teacher, while he’s on a business trip to London. The resulting pregnancy upends their lives.
Sharon struggles to adapt to living with this unwanted, and mostly useless American, who suddenly moves in with her. Hilarity ensues as Rob tries to navigate the unintended relationship and his new life in Britain.
The thing about Catastrophe is that you’re getting the full, unfiltered and untouched package of creative expression by two very creative people: It’s a show created by Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, written by Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney, and starring Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney (as, you guessed it, Sharon and Rob).
The show is Sharon and Rob’s product of love, and it’s just great.
