Catch 22 on Stan

Recommended Posts

I got through 35 minutes before giving up. It has literally no point of contact with the Joseph Heller novel. It is completely tone deaf. It misses the humour, the politics and the nuances of the book. Genuinely awful and very disappointing.

Would be very hard to capture the feeling of the book, a bit like the Lord Of The Flies film version. What a fantastic book (Catch 22...well, both!!)

Thats why you never read the book.

I have been waiting to watch this so now you have left me sad.

I seem to be in the minority, since it has had some positive reviews in the press, so you may still enjoy it.

 

I think the 1970 film of Catch 22 captures some of the feeling and anarchy of the book much better than the new series, although there is no real substitute for reading the book.

Watched 5 eps and liking it. Lucky I can't read books.

Loved when they moved the bomb line and cleverly went to town.
