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

Perhaps confusingly, the Channel Four (UK) version of the end titles references Filmways Inc amongst the other co-production companies. The 1970 Mike Nichols film version was produced by Filmways, and bank-rolled by Paramount Pictures, which is how by various legacy arrangements, some of the Rights for this Hulu streaming/traditional broadcast Television version ended up making it a co-production with Paramount Television in 2018-19. The rights to most other (non-feature) Filmways properties, were acquired by Orion Pictures and then in turn ultimately by MGM, which doesn't appear to have an interest in this series apart from their defunct Filmways label.

User Reviews

 
Wonderful rendering of the classic satirical novel
17 May 2019 | by sharonkrussoSee all my reviews

This is a very enjoyable watch, especially if you read the book and saw the movie way back when they were "a thing." The acting is superb and the battle scenes are realistic but not too graphically violent. I appreciate a director and writer who do not feel they must gross us out at every turn. It has a nice subtlety and that was lacking in the original movie. It's a bit drawn out at points and some of the "mood" scenes could definitely be shortened and I think this would enhance the overall series, perhaps reducing it to 5 episodes instead of 6. I found the sex gratuitous and initially turned me off from watching the rest of it all. Why or why do writers/directors feel they MUST add a woman's nude body to each and every series and film?
