The Catch is a stylish and entertaining American television series that aired on ABC from 2016 to 2017. The show stars Mireille Enos as Alice Vaughan, a private investigator at an elite Los Angeles firm who is also a victim of fraud. Peter Krause plays the charming and elusive con artist, Benjamin Jones, who steals Alice’s heart and money, leaving her with a sense of betrayal and a need for revenge. Jay Hayden portrays Danny Yoon, Alice's best friend and confidante, who is also a smart and ambitious agent at the FBI.

The Catch is a thrilling and complex drama that centers around Alice's personal journey to regain control of her life and her professional quest to catch the most elusive and dangerous white-collar criminals on the planet. In each episode, Alice and her team of investigators take on a new case that usually involves sophisticated fraud schemes, high-profile clients, and dangerous adversaries. The show spends a fair amount of time on the details of these cases, the intricacies of fraud investigation, and the high-tech gadgets and tools used by the team to crack the cases. The cases are often solved through clever schemes and well-executed plans, with Alice and her team using their wits and skills to outsmart the criminals.

The Catch is not just about solving crimes or catching criminals. It is a character-driven show that explores the complex relationships and personal lives of the main characters. It delves into the depths of the human psyche, examining the motivations, fears, and desires of the characters. Alice's pursuit of Benjamin, for example, is not just about catching a criminal, but also about confronting her past, her vulnerabilities, and her feelings of inadequacy. She learns to trust and open up to people in ways she never thought possible, allowing herself to love and be loved in return. Benjamin, on the other hand, is not just a ruthless con artist, but also a compelling and sympathetic character, struggling with his own demons and past mistakes.

The Catch also has a strong sense of style and aesthetics, with its sleek and glamorous visual language, eclectic soundtrack, and sophisticated storytelling. The show's California setting is a perfect backdrop for its chic and modern ambiance, with its focus on fashion, art, and culture. The show's art direction, costumes, and cinematography are all top-notch and add to the show's overall high production value.

The Catch is a well-written and well-acted show with great chemistry between the main actors. Mireille Enos delivers a standout performance as the tenacious and lovable Alice, effortlessly bringing depth and nuance to her character. Peter Krause is equally impressive as the charming and elusive Benjamin, playing the role with just the right amount of suave and cunning. The supporting cast, which includes Jay Hayden, Sonya Walger, and Rose Rollins, are all excellent in their respective roles.

In conclusion, The Catch is a gripping and entertaining television show that combines crime procedural with character drama and stylish aesthetics. While it might not be the most groundbreaking or original show out there, it still manages to deliver a solid and entertaining viewing experience that is worth checking out.

The Catch is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (20 episodes). The series first aired on March 24, 2016.
