Trivia

Yossarian and Milo fly a Ju-52 "Iron Annie" on their "private" mission, a trusty, durable "workhorse" cargo plane built from 1931 to 1952. See more »

Goofs

The goof occurs when Yo-yo, Milo, and Orr visit the Caliph of Oran in Algeria; there never was such a thing as Algeria was a French colony until 1962. Furthermore, Algerians never dressed as they are depicted in the series. See more »

Catch-22

Luke Davies and David Michod distributes caution flyers before their play starts up. It has a catch. They have tried to walk that fine line between comedy and drama, it may serve the purpose but it may not be served up front. You, as an audience, are asked to compromise, to let go off plenty of things before you join in on their camp and work hard and earn your price. Joseph Heller's adaptation of this novel has had better versions. It certainly is more engaging and crowded but it also takes up a notch, for the shocks and thrills; unfortunately it doesn't bode well especially when it goes dark.

Out of many, many elements spread around the six chapters, the "missions remaining" countdown on the screen is the best and the most successful one. The annoyance of our lead character, Christopher Abbott communicates with us and the anger shared. On terms of humor, Hugh Laurie as an utterly confident Major gets a huge chunk of it along with his co-star and dear friend George Clooney sharing the laughs with a stereotypical commands-gone-wrong gags. There is a certain amount of light in your eyes visible as soon as they appear on screen.

Abbott as the frustrated and often flawed protagonist ultimately- after a long tiring and effortful battle with us- gets the empathy from us. With undergone loads of jarring information about the day to day politics of this camp, Abbott learns to be shameless like them, in the end, literally! Often the series tends to stretch, just for one joke or one punch which can be a test of patience for the viewers to sit through it. The term Catch-22, just like it is defined in the series, is confined in its self-created loop and no one, no one has the guts to break that wheel.

Episode #1.4

Sobering up after the costliest rehab therapy, our host is turning into an idol to root for, frankly, by now it is difficult to see him work hard no matter what the agenda be or how brief that period might be. Also, Clooney's direction is always reliable even in a poignant script as such.
