Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan on Catastrophe are like Coach and Mrs. Taylor, if Coach Taylor frequently masturbated in the basement (sorry for that mental image), Mrs. Taylor swore and drank excessively, and the two never, ever stopped fighting. But the love the two couples share is weirdly similar. Rob and Sharon genuinely adore each other; it’s just that they hate each other, too. It’s that love/hate chemistry that makes Catastrophe one of the best, most brutally honest, and funniest examinations of marriage on television.

The third season arrives on Amazon at the end of the month and, as always, the only problem I have with Catastrophe is that the six-episode seasons are too short (on the other hand, those who need to catch up can binge the first two seasons in under 6 hours).
