Yellowjackets, on Showtime

Is anyone watching this? I really liked the first episode. It’s like a more horrific version of Lost, lots of flashbacks & mystery…and cannibalism! I really like Juliette Lewis in everything she’s in.

by Anonymousreply 600January 19, 2022 5:47 PM

I figured it would be stupid but I really liked it as well...a little Lord of the Flies and True detective mixed with teenage girls and their adult selves.

Fuck, I hate Juliette Lewis. Such an annoying chick. And that whole rock-star thing? Ugh.

The girl that plays young Juliette is really pretty. And has a great taste in music and movies, judging by her Insta.

If this was a real female soccer team, half of them would be gay and dating each other.

The 90's scenes don't really look 90's, despite all the 90's rock songs that are playing in the background every five minutes.

I loved the first episode and much of the second. I guess my problem is that the wilderness scenes and the scenes where the present day adults reflect on the past are way, way more interesting than their current problems. I was so bored with the cliche problems in Melanie Lynskey’s family and some rough trade she met in a fender bender. My attention wanders and I miss when something interesting happens.

Why wouldn't they used a Nirvana song then? Smashing Pumpkins weren't a riot grrrl band either. It's not like they could only use either Hole or a Nirvana song. Not both.

Plus Nirvana was a lot closer to Olympia, WA riot grrrl bands than Hole were. Literally, since they lived there and dated Bikini Kill girls, musically and idealogicly. Courtney hated those bands. And Kurt Cobain was way bigger feminist than she ever was.

Those are YOUR reasons. Why is it so difficult for you to comprehend that maybe they decided to use Hole--a popular, primarily FEMALE band from the decade this show is set in--instead of Nirvana? This show is about young women, female empowerment, etc. Everything THAT movement was about and despite Love's selective memory, she capitalized on that image. BIG TIME.

Like “Mare of Easttown” (and other good shows), it should only be one season. I think it dilutes the magic when they drag something out. Let it be a fantastic 13 episodes and let it go. Some projects, like “The White Lotus” can return with new characters, but I don’t know how “Yellowjackets” could make these mysteries last. And, personally, I don’t care for the “Lord of the Flies” part of the show. I like the 2021 part a lot more.

The cast is really good but Christina Ricci is making this a must watch for me. She is hilarious. Melanie Lynskey is heavier than her old self but she is middle aged and that's what a lot of middle aged women look like. Juliette Lewis can play the white trash outcast in her sleep but she is good here. Tawny Cypress has yet to connect in a real way. She is played too cold for being in a seemingly loving relationship with a small child. Her scene telling off the rich white cunt was satisfying though.

Not sure about the supernatural elements to the story. I would prefer a straight up Lord of the Flies humans are awful real world telling of events. But who knows, the otherworldly stuff might pay off.

R149 To be fair, the dead ones could be lesbians.

Something seems slightly "off" to me about the 1996 scenes. I can't put my finger on why, some of the details they've gotten wrong have irritated me. I couldn't help but notice a "Keep Calm and Marry Harry" poster above Shauna's bed in the first episode. First of all, Prince Harry was like... what 11 or 12 in 1996? ICK. William was the "hot" one in 1996. Also, "Keep Calm and Carry On" shit wasn't mass marketed until what, 2005?

I'm sorry, I don't know WHY that dumb as hell detail got under my skin!!!!

So my theory is that Jackie wasn’t the murdered and cannibalized girl shown. We know Jackie is the influential leader and she got the girls to hold a seance in the attic - I could see her coming up with the idea of a sacrifice. She already gave her necklace away once so maybe she’ll do it again. The girls and guy go along with it - but maybe they fought her for control and ran her off before they were rescued and now she’s back for revenge…

I realize this makes zero sense - but I’ve had too much time to dwell on it since WE HAVE TO WAIT A WEEK!

There was a clue in this episode that Jackie did get rescued. When Shauna read through Jackie’s notebook you could see she wrote her movie favorite characters in Titanic (1997), scream (December 96), American Beauty & 10 things I hate about you (99) and Bring it on (2000). She also wrote her favorite song was Spice Girls Wannabe which was first played in the US in December 96 on mtv then on the radio in January 97. My guess is that she survived and was rescued but later killed herself or became institutionalized? These entries were too blatant to be errors. I’m also guessing that Jeff or Adam is behind the blackmail. Lotties vision of Laura Lee makes me suspect she will die in a fire- perhaps from trying to fly the plane?

by Anonymousreply 213December 20, 2021 3:42 PM

Also - Shauna's daughter is 16, so it's not the baby she had in the wilderness. That would make Shauna 34 and I thought they were saying Jackie was having her 40th birthday or something.

So I assume that baby dies and Callie is a kid she has when she returns and gets back with Jeff?

Yes so obvious it’s Shauna’s husband. Mysteriously out all night the same night of the money drop??? And the glitter shit was an easy way for them to show her finding it in their house.

Also didn’t they whine about not having money for their daughter’s college fund? He could say he wanted the money for that or some bullshit.

Hope there’s a better twist in addition to this. Maybe he’s working with Adam.

Why does Travis always looks so haunted? We know he was traumatized from bullying, seeing his gruesomely killed father, and probably whatever his physical ailment was.

Tai is suddenly a lot more interesting with adult Shauna than she is with her boring wife and weirdo son.

This was definitely the best episode since the pilot. Whoever wrote this episode should be writing them all. I loved the dynamics between Shauna and her husband, the Doom Homecoming, Nat and the coach. Parts of it felt like a play.

Something weird is up with Jackie starving herself. I have a suspicion that she might be intentionally trying to kill herself with their intention of donating her body for the rest of them to eat. But that seems like it could be a small arc resolved in the next episode where she gets over her doom and gloom complex.

Or maybe this episode changed the dynamics completely and now Jackie is about to killed.

R352, I have a feeling you’re right about Misty killing Coach. I hope it doesn’t happen too soon. I love the character and the actor is so good looking. That boner scene was classic TV. It’s gonna be really tragic when he goes.

They’re on, what, their second week in the wilderness, and are supposedly there for 19 months. There’s a lot of ground to cover, including when they’re found and return to school, etc. You have Misty, though, hiding shrooms and stuff in a tree, and she destroyed the black box so there’d be no signal - Misty is up to no good. I’m not guessing there’s much of a supernatural element to it. I think it’s Misty.

The things the kid saw were his mother sleepwalking. The man with no eyes can also be explained as hallucinations from Tai not sleeping well. She is aware that the stress is getting to her and that she’s not mentally well. That’s why she sent her wife and child to stay somewhere else. She’s afraid she’s going to do something dangerous.

The things Lottie saw were due to her being unmedicated — she’s schizophrenic or psychotic. Is anyone else seeing or hearing things that aren’t there?

Of course there’s some ambiguity because that makes it more interesting.

The only aspect that seems supernatural to me at this point might be Lottie. The flashback of her screaming in terror when she was in the car with her parents, which made them turn around and avoid a car collision. Then obviously her ramblings now that she's off of her meds.

Children act out when their home life is difficult. He was making weird drawings of what he saw, hitting a kid on the playground, pretty typical “acting out” behavior.

I think of him as Danny from “The Shining”.

Courtney Eaton (Lottie) did an interview with Vulture. Some points: she knew that Lottie was the Antler Queen because Sam Hanratty (teenage Misty) had been on set with the stunt doubles who did that scene and put it together. She trolls reddit and checks out the theories. At this point, she doesn't know if her character is actually having premonitions or is mentally ill. Doesn't know who would play an adult version of Lottie, doesn't seem impressed by the journalist's suggestions of Jordana Brewster or Fairuza Balk.

A perfect example of the is the Walking Dead.

They have dragged that show out for 10 seasons, just to milk it for every last drop.

As a result, the show absolutely sucks.

However, they premiered a limited series called "Walking Dead: World Beyond," which was explicitly going to run for two seasons, and that's it.

The show ran for exactly two seasons, and it was just perfect.

Everything wrapped up nicely, but best of all, the QUALITY of the show was a million times better than the original Walking Dead series.

I still think the girl in the pit from the first episode is Lottie. Same height and hair. Something will happen where she makes a mistake and Misty pushes her out as leader. How her name is associated with this cult that just kidnapped Natalie is a mystery, but I think it all might come down to Taissa. Didn't the fixer say it was Taissa who hired her to begin with? And now her wife has seen Taissa's little offerings in the cellar to win the election, I'm feeling like maybe Lottie's 'spirit' took her over in the woods and she has a DID thing going on? I don't know but I really liked this season.

Also, I agree with a poster upthread that the younger actress who plays Shauna is excellent. Her scene over dead Jackie was heartbreaking and it explains a lot about adult Shauna. I also think the actress playing young Natalie is very good.

There were six who left the campfire after they made a meal of the slain girl in the pit. So Shauna, Natalie, Tai, Misty, and...? I feel like Vanessa is def one of the alive ones.

I have a feeling something supernatural is going to happen to Van. I don’t see how she survived the mauling and the plane burning. When she came to after being on the fire, she was seeing everything with a blue tint. If it is a Wendingo, it’ll probably possess her and turn her into a monster. Tai will have to kill her and it will be a sad moment.

In case you haven't noticed R506, the dude has one leg. What the hell do you expect him to do exactly!? At least he came out as gay, and doing that in front of Misty took balls, considering how crazy Misty is! R497 is right!

R525 the point is, you can't do anything with one leg in a survival situation. Yes, he is an adult. An adult man with one leg who needs assistance from teenage girls because he doesn't have the physical capability due to having one leg. What more do you want from him!?

If you had one leg and was thrown into the forest with teenage girls who are unstable, what would you do? Hop your way to safety?

R529 He should have become an authority as soon as they crashed, one or both legs. Now it's too late, the girls can see they can push him over. Also, there was no violence in the begging, so it's not like he had to fear for his life. Hell, there wasn't any so far, apart from when they were all high on mushrooms. It's not like the girls would stab him if he had speak up and tell them that Jackie stays in the cabin. You guys are being ridiculous.

The coach is an assistant HS soccer coach, not a navy seal. And his injury was significant (although the show seems to be playing it down). But even if the coach is a natural leader with miraculous self-healing abilities, he would have been completely out of it the first week. They would have learned to get along without him and he would have had to re-assert his authority from scratch. While being unable to walk.

R531, Misty was injecting the chocolate candies for the box she was going to send to Jessica's father to threaten her, not cigarettes. Obviously, the reporter thought she'd outsmarted Misty by the time she let her go and didn't consider that the box of cigarettes Misty had thrown in the trash would also be laced. I don't think that was her being stupid, just cocky.

‘Yellowjackets’ star Melanie Lynskey says she was body-shamed on set

The Yellowjackets have each other’s backs.

Melanie Lynskey, who plays Shauna in “Yellowjackets,” says her fellow actors rallied to her defense after she was body-shamed by a member of production.

The New Zealand-born actress claims that someone on the crew for the creepy Showtime drama series asked about her weight.

“They were asking me, ‘What do you plan to do? I’m sure the producers will get you a trainer. They’d love to help you with this,’” Lynskey, 44, recalled to Rolling Stone.

Lynskey said co-stars Tawny Cypress, Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis stood by her, with Lewis even writing a letter to producers on her behalf.

“It was really important to me for [Shauna] to not ever comment on my body, to not have me putting a dress on and being like, ‘I wish I looked a bit better,’” she explained. “I did find it important that this character is just comfortable and sexual and not thinking or talking about it, because I want women to be able to watch it and be like, ‘Wow, she looks like me and nobody’s saying she’s the fat one.’ That representation is important.”

Sadly, it hasn’t just been the production staff who have criticized Lynskey’s appearance.

The actress says fans have questioned whether Adam (Peter Gadiot) — the hunky artist Shauna has an affair with — would really be attracted to her.

“I’m just like, ‘Wow, really? That’s where people’s heads are at, that the most important thing is being thin or young?’” she exclaimed.

Page Six has reached out to Showtime for comment.

In real life, Lynskey is married to actor Jason Ritter. The two share one child together, a 3-year-old daughter.

The “Sweet Home Alabama” star has been vocal about her past struggles with an eating disorder over the years.

“It’s a bummer to have to say this, but the biggest challenge I’ve faced in my career would be my own body image and the way that the industry views people’s bodies,” she told Denizen last year.

”There’s sort of an implicit expectation of perfection because everybody looks the same. But I had a bad eating disorder for 10 years, and even when I was like 58 kilograms [128 pounds], I would still be shamed in wardrobe fittings for not being sample size.”

Shauna’s not-hotness is acknowledged. Her daughter alludes to it when she says something like, “I guess you’ve got that Yellowjacket’s thing going on.” And it’s unstated, but I think it’s obvious that Shauna’s eventual suspicion of her bf is due, in part, to their physical mismatch. Also she used that and her embarrassment when she was placating the other women before they got rid of the body.

Say what you will about Shauna's dumpiness, she does have one amazing asset. Notice that the dress her husband bought for her showed that feature off. It seems like Jeff has been on Shauna's side for a long time and we even saw him defend her to Jackie's parents. The fact that he read her diaries years ago but never let on suggests that he might even admire her for surviving the way she did. He digs his wife's survivalist instincts and recognizes that she's much smarter than him. I can see why he's still with her.

I can't see why Shauna is still with Jeff. She could have done better than the prom king who runs a failing furniture store. It's funny how she accused Jackie of peaking in high school and then that's exactly what happened to her.

The creators said in an interview that the years immediately after their return will be explored and I can't wait. I want to see why Shauna didn't go to Brown (or anywhere else), just settled in and went through the motions of mediocrity.
