Barry, Yellowjackets, and mini grab bag

Ruthless killing (season 4) and ruthless killing (season 2), plus some things we've been watching lately

We discuss Barry and Yellowjackets, two series about human darkness.

05:17 Barry season 4, streaming on HBO Max, is reaching new, uncanny, glorious heights.

29:51 Yellowjackets season 2, streaming on Showtime, doesn’t quite live up to all its promises, instead faltering and stalling to an unfortunate degree.

45:02 Plus, mini grab bag time! A collection of TV and films we’ve been watching recently, including You Hurt My Feelings, Mrs. Davis, Somebody Somewhere, The Eight Mountains, and more.
