Storyline

Captain John Yossarian, a World War II bombardier, is stationed on the island of Pianosa. He is an individualist who seeks to protect his own life by fleeing to the hospital, since a "catch-22" in the Air Force regulations prevents him from being grounded for illness or obtaining a leave.

Trivia

When asked about filming the sex scenes, Julie Ann Emery said "The sex scenes and nudity in Catch-22 were handled better than on any other set I have ever been on. And I think that is owed entirely to the #MeToo movement and awareness being raised. The inner set was shut down to a degree that I have seldom seen, and we could see where the monitors were so we could tell who was watching the screens. I also found out later that the producers requested that as many women working on production as possible be present on the larger sound stage to try to balance out the gender numbers, which definitely had a psychologically positive effect on me. Think of it this way, most sets are 75%-80% male. If you are a woman being asked to disrobe in an environment where there are so few women, it can begin by feeling like a hostile environment just by the sheer numbers alone... I was massively empowered by directors George Clooney and Grant Heslov. I was given great agency over my choices and my body. That was new for me. I was accustomed to a more aggressive environment on scenes of that nature. This felt more like, 'let's figure out what the shot is and what is physically happening so we can get down to the scene work.' It blew my mind a little bit. The scene work became much more interesting because the physical aspects were handled well and we were comfortable." See more »

A Decent Adaptation
18 May 2019 | by Rachelleduc85See all my reviews

This is my favorite book. I watched the movie ages ago and hated it. This miniseries makes up for it. The casting is amazing. I always envisioned Yossarian as young and attractive and this actor does him justice. The first few episodes had me rolling with laughter. Much like the book, as the story goes on, it gets darker. I didn't like how the ending is completely different than the book. I wish they could have added a little more of the zany humor and I wish it would have been a few episodes longer. Also if I had been writing, I would have added more foreshadowing of Orr and his flying crashes and how he was always trying to coerce Yossarian to fly with him. Yoyo's A-HA moment was very anticlimactic. Other than that. It was pretty good. I binged them all on one day. When I watched I was watching for similarities to the book. I will probably watch again with fresher eyes as a series instead of an adaptation.
