Christopher Abbott (The Sinner) stars as Yossarian, a WWII bombardier whose plan to bail on combat is constantly thwarted, not least by Catch-22 – you can get out of service if you are mentally unwell, but the mere fact of pleading your case proves a concern for one’s own safety and is clearly the act of a rational mind.
Aside from directing two episodes, George Clooney delivers a great performance as a bombastic army general. Also worth noting is the comic turn from Hugh Laurie. Based on Joseph Heller’s classic novel, this six-part mini-series progresses from bureaucratic farce to a chilling meditation on the futility of war.
