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 82November 29, 2021 12:08 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.

Great premiere, already hooked.

I plan to. Was the first episode gory?

I gave it a shot and really liked it. The important part is that the young girls were not annoying like most teens are in shows these days.

(r6) New episodes are Sunday on Showtime. Hulu has a deal where you can add Showtime for $3.99 a month for 4 months before the price goes up so that's one way to access.

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 guess Jackie (Shauna's best friend) doesn't make it out of the wilderness since there's no actress portraying the adult version of her, or did I miss something? Who was running at the beginning of Ep1 and ultimately fell to her death?

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.

I love it so far. Juliette Lewis is EVERYTHING. Dark, brooding, intense as FUCK. She's just one of those actors that's fascinating to watch. I'm a fan of Melanie Lynskey, but I don't give a shit about broken marriage storylines--so that's a FF.

They probably used Hole over Nirvana because the 90s riot grllll aesthetic blah blah blah

R42 "They probably used Hole over Nirvana because the 90s riot grllll aesthetic blah blah blah"

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.

The girl actresses are well matched to their grown up actresses.

The BODY on "Teen Jeff" (actor is Jack DePew and at 29 way too old for this, of course).

by Anonymousreply 45November 27, 2021 9:57 PM

Juliette Lewis is a gem of a woman IRL. Not "cray cray" in the slightest and wholly her own person. Humble, a bit strange, charismatic and steeped in old glamor and Hollywood stories from the late 80's, 90's and beyond. She's one of those people everyone wants at the dinner party.

Juliette Lewis's face looks haggard and fantastic in this show. Christina Ricci playing adult and "ugly" Misty is a stretch. Also Juliette is a number of years older.

R43 Who gives a fuck about how Love felt about Kathleen Hanna and those other bands? Who cares that they used the Pumpkins?

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.

The sign is carved on the tree when they arrive. We know in episode 2 the girls descend into savagery but there must be an outside agent who/that is part of what happens. The agent could be human or supernatural. It won't bother me either way.

Teen Sauna is secretly barebacking her BFF's Jackie's longterm boyfriend Jeff. Adult Jeff is now Sauna's husband. There is no adult Jackie - so she dies in the mountain shenanigans.

by Anonymousreply 70November 28, 2021 10:08 PM

Her husband was HAF in HS and remains so. It's compensation because she never got to go to Brown and instead became a flesh eating savage in the woods.

Its too early to trust any character and we already have reasons to distrust most if not all of them.

I bet it’s the presumed-dead Jackie behind this new drama. Who will play adult Jackie?

I am really liking this, but is designed to be multiple seasons? I just don’t see how they can sustain it.

I did like the music this episode, even if I don’t really “get” why 80s music was used so much. Vienna by Ultravox at the end, and my favorite Kim Wilde song, Cambodia, when Shauna was tailing her husband. I love that song.

by Anonymousreply 72November 29, 2021 1:17 AM

R72, I love it, too.

Whoever fell into the pit didn’t survive. How could she have?

I absolutely HATE the flashbacks to the crash site. They give me major anxiety.

Melanie Lynskey’s voice reminds me of Megan Mullally.

So they were in the woods for three days but when they were bathing in the lake, all of their armpits were freshly shaved.

And why would cops go to the site where the guy hang himself? How would they know that someone hang themself? So stupid. The first thing they would do is find those fresh tire tracks that match the car of the two women that were in jail just few hours ago, for breaking into this dead guy's home.

P.S. why do American cops always turn the sirens on when going to the crime scene? So that the perpetrator can escape on time? Or they don't do that and it's just a thing in Hollywood movies and shows?
