About TV show Catch-22 season 2
Series adaptation of the novel by Joseph Heller from 1961. George Clooney is the director and leading actor of the miniseries for the US streaming service Hulu.
The focus is on the Air Force member John Yossarian, who is stationed on a Mediterranean island during the Second World War and has to participate in bomber missions against the Axis forces at mortal danger. The situation drives him into despair, because he is aware that the soldiers of the other side want to kill him, although one does not know each other. Yossarian just wants to go home. He hopes to do it through different strategies. On the one hand, he first tries to fulfill his prescribed "duties" in missions and then, "after he has contributed his fair share," to be honored - but the target is continually increased so that he can never achieve it. On the other hand, he hopes to reach his goal with sick leave. But here is the insane rule Catch -22 in the way: For the dismissal from the service, it provides as a condition that one is incompetent and asks for the dismissal.
