For every dramatic undertaking, there have been several comedic looks including classics like McHale's Navy, Hogan's Heroes, and the long-running, award-winning M*A*S*H. That's where Catch-22 comes into the equation.
Based on the book by the same name written by Joseph Heller and published in 1961.
