In episode 3 of Catch-22, the story took a hard, bloody turn into darkness. Things are unraveling for Yossarian, and his increasingly unhinged actions are starting to have real and dire consequences for other people besides himself. When Yo-Yo makes the choice to illicitly move the mission bomb line to avoid the suicide bombing run to Bologna, the direct (and indirect) results include the disappearance (and probable death) of Major deCoverley, as well as the deaths of Kid  Sampson and McWatt. Life for Yossarian and his squadron peeps is coming apart fast and it’s probably only going to get worse. Catch up on all the details of the last episode with our deep dive recap and review here.

Welcome back to the War.  In Episode 1 of Catch-22, we met our protagonist, John “Yo-Yo” Yossarian, and a peculiar cast of characters, stationed on the island of Pianosa, Italy during World War II.

He’s terrified of dying and increasingly willing to do ANYTHING he can to get out of this war. However, the inscrutable commanders in charge of Yo-Yo and his friends aren’t quite ready to let them go home. At the end of Episode 1, John learns the meaning of a “Catch-22.”

Catch-22
Love It Or Leave It? Review
May 17, 2019

On May 17, 2019, Hulu released its newest limited series, the six episode Catch-22. Based on Joseph Heller’s 1961 novel of the same name, Catch-22 is a dark satire of military bureaucracy and the absurdity of war. Filled with laugh out loud moments that turn on a dime into gut wrenching, deeply affecting emotional moments (complete with blood, guts, and death), Catch-22 captures much of the tone and spirit of Heller’s writing. Bolstered by some of the most gorgeous cinematography I’ve ever seen on TV as well as several Emmy award-worthy, outstanding supporting acting performances, Catch-22 is an easy pick to binge watch.
