Joseph Heller's 1961 novel "Catch-22" was set in World War Two, but the makers of the first television adaptation believe its satirical take on the insanity of war is just as relevant in today's age of anxiety. With characters like profiteering Milo Minderbinder, mediocre commander Major Major and parade loving Lieutenant Scheisskopf, "Catch-22" portrays a U.S. bomber squadron whose superiors are not just incompetent, but deaf to reason.Because Heller's non-linear style echoes the absurdity of the plot, Davies took eight months just to straighten out the chronology for the TV series, which is told from the perspective of bombardier Captain John Yossarian, played by Christopher Abbott.
