Yellowjackets S02E01 480p WEBRip x264
Yellowjackets (2021) is a series that I started when it first began and just recently finished. It's available on the Showtime App and Peacock. The storyline follows a high school girl's soccer team whose plane crashes in the wilderness. The series depicts both how they survived in the forest and how those events impacted their lives as adults. This series was cocreated by Ashley Lyle and Bart Nickerson, who also worked together on Narcos, and stars Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers), Christina Ricci (Black Snake Moan), Melanie Lynskey (Don't Look Up), Sophie Thatcher (The Book of Bobba Fett), Kevin Alves (Locke & Key) and Tawny Cypress (Brooklyn's Finest). The storyline for this is written very well in how it mixes previous and current events. The characters and circumstances are unique, fascinating and unveiled to the audience at the appropriate pace. The flashback scenes in the woods are outstanding. There's times you find yourself thinking get back to that storyline. The present day storyline gets better as the film unfolds. Christina kills this performance and is very good as her character. You can say the same about Juliette Lewis and Melanie Lynskey (who was also great in Castle Rock). The chemistry and dynamics between characters is very well delivered. The last two episodes are worth the journey of watching this series. I didn't expect this to get trippy but it does. Overall, this series isn't perfect but I still loved it. They can go in so may directions from here and I can't wait for season 2. I would score this an 8-8.5/10 and strongly recommend it.
