Just watched this over the past few weeks and the wife and I really liked it. I loved the Misty character by both actresses, but I kind of hated Juliette Lewis,(and the girl who played her as a teenager) and normally I like her acting. Her whole demeanor and mannerisms we're off-putting. I'm sure it's what they were going for, but it annoyed me. Besides that, the entire cast was great.Bashbash99 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 01, 2021 3:04 pmAnybody else watching Yellowjackets on Showtime? I'm enjoying it quite a bit so far, although i have some concerns the show could end up being like Lost and sinking under the weight of its own mysteries.
The Premise is that about 25 years ago a plane carrying a girls soccer team crashed in the Canadian rockies and the high schoolers were lost in the wilderness for 19 months, during which a lot of Lord of the Flies stuff occurred, including cannibalism. In the present, at least some of the surviving members (who promised each other to never go public with what happened) are receiving mysterious postcards, containing a symbol that we also see carved into trees in the rockies.
Feels like the premise alone is enough to make for a compelling series... but on top of that, the writers are introducing additional new mysteries with each episode. the most recent one suggest maybe there are supernatural elements involved. I dunno, i guess some of these newer mysteries plus hearing that the creators intend for it to last 5 seasons make me worry this will become like Lost, but anyhow so far so good.
Christina Ricci and Juliette Lewis are probably the most fun to watch but the whole cast is pretty great imo
I'm looking forward to them revealing the mystery behind what exactly happened and the supernatural nature of it all. How do people die? Who goes crazy?
The show isn't perfect, but I'm excited for the next season.
