YellowJackets: Definitely Must-See TV


I'm not a fan of gory and grotesque ("Yellowjackets" is neither) but I somehow got myself to try this well-reviewed show and give it a shot. And boy was I happy that I did!


"Yellowjackets" follows the story of a wildly talented high school girl soccer team from New Jersey that becomes the (un)lucky survivors of a plane crash deep in the Canadian wilderness. While flying over Canada in 1996, their plane crashes on its way to Seattle, and the remaining team members are left to survive for nineteen months. The series chronicles their attempts to survive while also tracking their current lives in 2021. Every episode was masterfully written and acted, with the usual twists and cliff hangers, but unexpected outcomes. "Yellowjackets" is up for 7 Primetime Emmy Nominations, including Outstanding Drama Series, Lead Actress and Supporting Actress.
