I know, I was just saying no to your other theory.

All these posts are yours (to read).

Except Spoilers.

Attempt no reading, there.


Seriously, don't.

Re: Catastrophe (Amazon Prime)

Almost every character on this show is kind of an asshole.

I thought it was pretty final, and dark. It really appeared that they were taken out by the rip tide.

The only hope I had was that the description for season 4 had the phrase "They need each other to stay afloat," so that 'could' be a sign that they made it.

The horrific idea that I missed, when I first watched it, was that if they drowned, the kids may also have perished in the hot car. Although, the windows were down, so I think that may be a stretch. I have to convince myself of that much.
Yes, the 2nd theory I got... but it still didn't fully feel like a series ending... some aspects, yes - but not all.

Re: Catastrophe (Amazon Prime)

Well, the tag-line in the online ads for the show says (spoiling just in case)...
Spoiler:
"When life pulls you under, let love keep you afloat"

That can't be a coincidence!

Re: Catastrophe (Amazon Prime)

We've loved this series since s1. I didn't like what they did with Fergal this season, though. He was a scene stealer in S1 & S2 and my favorite character.

The show has been great and I wish we could get more. I'm sure they feel like they've exhausted it to an extent, though, and are ready to do something else.

Re: Catastrophe (Amazon Prime)

I really loved the show. it was a pretty solid last season, wish there were more episodes per season as it was too easy to binge a season and be done.

For the Sharon Horgan fans out there there is an older show from 06-09 called Pulling that is almost a prequel story wise to Catastrophe the show follows Horgan as a single woman that just called off a wedding going onto the dating scene. Not as good as Catastrophe but the first season is pretty good. I had to track down DVDs from the library as its not on Netflix or Prime for free. It feels a little more like Peep Show than Catastrophe to me but its not bad and is only 13 episodes over 3 seasons (although I have yet to track down the final season single episode)
