THE CATCH SEASON 1 REVIEWED
“The Catch” is proof that Shonda Rhimes knows what women want. Often called “The White Scandal” in recent reviews, “The Catch” elevates itself above such comparisons. Sure, there’s a grand deal more female fantasy fulfillment in the hunt for “Christopher”. But, not everyone has got to live the life of an Anne Hathaway. So, what about those in the cheap seats?
The show features some of the best work from Peter Krause since he left “Six Feet Under”. Over ten episodes, he leads Mireille Enos deep into his world. Krause plays his con man similar to Matt Bomer’s performance on White Collar. It’s not that he has tricks or is that talented. Krause’s Christopher just knows the right people and how to get what he wants from a smile. Hopefully, a full season 2 gets to expand on his background.
I’d love to hear a commentary for this show moving forward. It seems like there are a lot more ideas going on behind the scenes than your average ShondaLand series. That being said, don’t overlook this series. It might end up being one of the best of 2016.

From Shondaland, the producers behind SCANDAL and HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, comes THE CATCH: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON. Meet Alice Vaughan (Mireille Enos): Strong, smart and tough-as-nails. She specializes in foiling world-class criminals with her elite team at Anderson/Vaughan Investigations, so she’s devastated after losing her heart — and her life savings – to dashing, international conman Benjamin Jones (Peter Krause) — a.k.a. “Christopher.” Desperate to extract some serious payback, Ali embarks on a secret quest to nab her ex-fiance, but the spark that ignited between them refuses to die. Soon, both Alice and Ben find themselves caught between trying to keep one step ahead of his murderous associates and her crime-fighting colleagues… and trying in vain to keep their hands off each other! Relive the danger and fun of this high-stakes romance with all 10 episodes — plus intriguing bonus features — that draw you into the passionate, deliciously twisted clutches of THE CATCH.
