Here at dozonlife I'm going to start recommending shows and stuff because I have great taste in everything and I'm here to serve the people with them. You should take my endorsement as gospel. I wouldn't recommend something shitty. So here we go.
With the way we live nowadays I feel like nobody actually watches shows live. It's either streaming or catching up with DVR. I am always watching something when I'm home but unless it's a live game, it's almost never on cable tv. I don't watch any tv shows live anymore. With services like Netflix, HBOGO, Hulu and Amazon (plus many more I'm probably forgetting) there are so options better suiting to when you're free.
First off, the show I'm about to get into describing is on Amazon video. You probably don't use Amazon video because you're probably like the other 99.9% of people on earth who mainly use Netflix, but you may have a subscription without even knowing it. You can use the amazon streaming service if you have an amazon prime account. If you don't have one, wtf are you doing? Get out from the rock you live under and get with the times. It's 2016, Amazon Prime is a must. I buy literally everything off of amazon whether it be clothes or wet wipes (recently changed to baby wipes instead of traditional TP, make the move it's life changing). You get two day shipping for free with prime, it's my favorite shopping website. I'd recommend Amazon Prime to everybody. So get Amazon Prime so you can watch this series.
Catastrophe is a romantic comedy series set in England. They say it's an Amazon Original Series but that's a lie, it airs on Channel 4 in the UK but Amazon has the rights to it. They just added the second season to Amazon but I watched it online before that because I was so hooked on the show and couldn't wait.
So in Catastrophe Rob (played by comedian Rob Delaney) is an ad man from Boston, beantown Don Draper, and is overseas for business, goes out, has a one night stand with a teacher Sharon (Sharon Horgan) that turns into a like a one week stand before he goes back home to Boston.
You think, they really seemed into each other...too bad they're so far apart. Those damn kids could have made it.
Then Rob is back in the states on a date with a different woman. He gets call. Who could it be? It's Sharon! But this is not a, I'm so horny fly to back to London for a week call, it's a hey remember me? That lady you fucked in a public bathroom? Well I'm pregnant. Not an awesome call to get. So Rob goes back to England to meet with her and from there they try to figure out what to do.
All of that happens in the first episode so I'm not spoiling anything. The series is about the struggles of them trying to make it work in this unusual circumstance. Two people in their early 40's having a fling that results in a baby. It's actually very funny, I hate giving British people credit for anything, but dammit those fuckers are funny. Not only is Catastrophe funny but it also takes you on the emotional journey of their relationship, so theres something for everybody.
Want to know what happens next? Check out Catastrophe on Amazon. The first two seasons are available, 6 episodes each, only a half hour long so you realistically could bang out two seasons in one night (like I've done)
If you watch it let me know so I have someone to talk about it with because I'm literally the only person I know that watches this show.
