(ESP-ENG) Yellowjackets, a tragic past that haunts everyone!
Hola amigos, buenas vibras para todos.
Haven't you ever lived through something in your youth, some unpleasant experience or simply a memory that even though you want to forget you can't and that years later still haunts you without you wanting it to? - Well, that's what this series is about, and I had heard a lot about it and it was only a few days ago that I had the opportunity to take a look at it after a little more than a year since its release. I confess that I was completely unaware of what it was about so I started totally blindly and the truth is that the story of the Yellowjackets is as fascinating as tragic and disturbing, which obviously I did not know and much less I expected because there is something you have to know, the intrigue and not knowing what is really happening are the base elements of this plot.
There are few series that manage to leave me upset as their chapters go by and this is one of them, as I told you from the first episode you know that something bad or at least strange is in the air, there is an atmosphere where you can see that the secret that these women hide is a little heavy even for themselves. It is a plot full of suspense, an important psychological terror but it is also a thriller because there are shades of blackmail and murder and if that were not enough we could talk about a drama because what the protagonists lived and are living is not a pleasant burden. But well, let's go and talk a little more in depth about what is this great series because yes, the series is pretty good.
Who are the Yellowjackets? - The story is entirely about them. They are a group of teenagers who belong to a successful soccer team, they were really good to the point that they qualified for the national championship. But as in any group there will always be quarrels, frictions and misunderstandings which was the norm but nothing happened because in the end one way or another they solved their problems. In spite of everything they were a "united" group and under this attitude they decided to leave for the championship without knowing that this trip would change their lives forever. The plane in which they were traveling crashes in a remote mountainous area from which they will soon realize that it is very difficult to get out because of a series of things that begin to happen a little out of the ordinary.
The thing is that there were some survivors that almost 25 years later are trying to go on with their lives in spite of how complicated this task is. It was so much what happened in those mountains that none of them want to talk about it, they haven't talked about it since that time but friends, lies and secrets somehow come out and something like that our "brave ones" are about to experience. One part of the plot starts here, searching and discovering what is going on after so long and why there are those who want to open that box of secrets and the other part of the story will stay in those mountains to show us those difficult and strange days they lived apart from everything.
As I told you this is a plot that has two timelines, the first in the mountains where we will see all the coexistence and strange phenomena that tormented these girls and the second these same girls made adult women trying to sort their lives with all these closely guarded secrets. This series has something and that is that as soon as you sit down to watch it you know that what you will see is just the tip of the iceberg, I think this is its main feature, they play a lot with the "hype" and the expectation of wanting to know what is behind everything to only give you crumbs between episodes. It's a good formula because it obviously invites you to keep watching it and in the end it makes it much more interesting and mysterious, we are curious by nature so at some point you will feel that anxiety of not understanding what is going on.
But it is not only the expectation but also the plot twists that abound. I would dare to say that in each chapter there is one that totally dismantles the theory that you already had thought so everything you see or think may not be real at all. Those little surprises for the unexpected are some of the things I enjoy and value the most in a series as well as in a movie, they are elements that raise the score a lot in my ranking when it comes to scoring and recommending. Obviously all this makes this plot is not boring at all, I guarantee you will not get tired if you are one of those who enjoy the genre. Important, there is a lot of juvenile material, the typical fights and arguments between "friends" but in the end what they will give is more context to assimilate a little of the outcome.
As for the genre, the suspense and psychological terror is very good but it is not one that scares with the typical "jump scare", it is a deeper one, I feel like it is a fear of the intangible, the lack of knowledge of the true nature of things, you know that there is something strange but you can't figure out what it is. And as for the drama, we will see family problems derived from all that past, problems with addictions, there are certain personality disorders, honestly there is a little bit of everything so many flanks are covered, there is good entertainment wherever you want to see it. And finally and something that surprised me a lot is how violent and raw it is, there are some very explicit scenes about to fall into the "gore" which I will always encourage, they were very well done, the latter with the terror that I spoke at the beginning gives a super interesting combination.
The cast is very top, actresses like Melanie Lynskey, Christina Ricci, Ella Purnell and Juliette Lewis give life to these characters, both young and adult. Shauna, Misty, Jackie and Natalie are their characters, some of the most interesting of the whole series. The top performance I think goes to Ricci, her character is super complex and complicated to understand, a person with an immense need for attention that will lead her to do something crazy. And Juliette Lewis is another standout, an addict to everything who desperately seeks answers from an unfinished past, a dangerous and lethal combination. Overall even the young actresses stand out, all the characters are unmissable.
A spectacular series, with an open ending, surprising and at least for me very unexpected. The good thing is that the second season premieres at the end of March so it's a good time to watch it. I give it an 8.5/10, it is one of those top series that I think very few people talk about and know about. It has a duration of 10 episodes of one hour each, it is available on Hulu. I highly recommend it, it is incredibly worth it. I leave you the trailer so you can take a look at it.
¡Un abrazo a todos, nos vemos en la próxima!
Well my people that's all for today, I hope you liked it.

👀👀👀👀 un equipo que esconde un oscuro secreto, puede que cause intriga después de todo. Existen cosas que esconde mucha gente, y bueno, sería interésate ver un poco más allá de lo que se ve a simple vista. La trama se ve interesante por el esquema del deporte.
Está buena, un grupo de adolescentes perdidas en una montaña a punto de morir y quedarse sin comida, allí sin dudas puede pasar cualquier cosa. Es una trama que da para mucho y creo que le sacaron lo máximo que pudieron porque pasa casi de todo, así que si, la intriga está a la orden del día.
