Catastrophe Catastrophe

The best way to describe Catastrophe would be as a ‘coming of middle age’ story. Two people forced together and compelled to make real adult life decisions.

It features a whole host of nearly identical women who share an interest in ‘looking good’ and buying... [Read more of this review]
