'For the LOVE of MY SHOW!' — Part 2: Why 'Catastrophe,' 'Goliath,' and ‘Patriot’ Are TV Fan Favorites

TV fans Mark DeCarlo, Shannon Bobo, Ramsey Badawi, Jimmy Palumbo and Kate Flannery gathered to talk about three of their favorite shows to binge: Amazon’s “Catastrophe,” “Goliath” and “Patriot.”

Catastrophe” is written by and stars comedian Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan. The chemistry in the writing and performances is so authentic you’d think they are a real-life couple.

The late Carrie Fisher also gives a hilarious, can’t-miss performance as Rob’s mother, Mia.

On the other end of the spectrum is “Goliath,” a David E. Kelley legal drama starring Billy Bob Thornton, William Hurt, and Maria Bello.

Thornton won a best actor in TV drama at the 2017 Golden Globes for his portrayal of Billy McBride, a washed up attorney who takes on a case that can change his career — and his life.

Finally, there’s “Patriot,” a dark comedy starring Michael Dorman as an U.S. intelligence officer who must assume a new identity at a Midwestern piping company. It also stars fan favorites Terry O’Quinn (“Lost”) and Michael Chernus (“Orange is the New Black”).

All three shows are very different but share strong, relatable characters and cinematic storytelling.

See why our hilarious TV buffs says “Catastrophe,” “Goliath,” and “Patriot” are worth adding to your binge list!
