I recently finished the last episode of a four-season series I discovered on Amazon Prime.

This story is about two people who have a one-night stand, the woman gets pregnant, and the story moves forward.

The writing is extremely honest and sometimes bold. I love good writing. These two characters, the man from the US, the woman, living in London, yet Ireland born – these two are not only the leads; they created and wrote every word.

There are family layers, children layers, grandparents come and go and other friendships and relationships appear and disappear along the way.

Each in their own way is involved in the problems of life and speak about it clearly and honestly. Sometimes it appears to be brutally honest.

The characters, everyone of them, say what they mean and mean what they say. This is down to the writers. If a character is not clear, others question them enough to discover what the truth really is.

There is drama, laughter, love and lessons learned.

And it is all honest. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if all relationships could be this honest?

To be able to tell the truth at home and at work is a divine feeling.

The show is named ‘Catastrophe’ which may have something to do with this-

Catastrophe was named after the following quotation from the movie, Zorba the Greek- “I’m a man, so I married. Wife, children, house, everything. The full catastrophe.”

Being honest while living in a catastrophe is doable – says this series.

There are lessons everywhere!

How honest can you be in your life?
