Jasmin Savoy Brown naked in season one of Yellowjackets

All comments by Whitecaps:

My caps from season one of Yellowjackets (720P). The women are Jasmin Savoy Brown, Sophie Thatcher, Courtney Eaton, Liv Hewson and Ella Purnell. Sophie Thatcher is the blonde and Courtney Eaton is the one with pokies.

Except for the one too dark frame from Liv Hewson in episode 9

all the nudity is from Jasmin Savoy Brown (in episode 9 above and episode 6 below).

I don’t know if that’s meant to be a nod to when the only exception to the ‘no nudity’ policy on (American) television was nudity from African tribeswomen in PBS documentaries.

There aren’t too many tv shows or movies based on plane crashes I think, but these are the other ones I’m aware of.

1.Lord of the Flies, 1954 movie, based on the book.

2.The New People, 1969 tv show. The backstory of this show is better than what I’ve seen of the show. Executive produced by Aaron Spelling and produced by Rod Serling. The first episode was written by Rod Serling under a pseudonym. It’s available on Archive.org. It’s completely hamfisted. The worst of Rod Serling. I like to think that Aaron Spelling asked him to write it that way.

The show concerns a bunch of young people whose plane crashes on an island that was meant to be a nuclear test site. However, the test was called off but all the housing and provisions were left on the island. All the adults on the plane were killed in the crash with the exception of the civil servant who told them about the island and that it was far away from everything else including shipping lanes and plane routes. (Thus why it was an ideal site for a nuclear bomb test.) At the end of the episode, he also dies.

The young characters are all cariactures, including the impossibly stupid jock. I tend to sympathize with the attitudes of the young people of the sixties, but the only line I liked was when the young people are told their U.S goodwill trip is coming to an end unless they stop attracting unwanted attention to themselves. When one young person complains ‘that’s slavery’ the civil servant increduously asks “Your idea of slavery is a round the world trip paid for by the American government?” This was obviously a nod to the sentiment of many Americans regarding the university protests of the 1960s.

3.Hey, I’m Alive. A 1975 made for tv movie based on a true story of two Americans who survived in the Yukon wilderness for 49 days. Starring Sally Struthers and Ed Asner it aired on late night television for a while in the 1980s. It’s available on Youtube.

4.Alive, 1993 movie. Based on the true story of the survivors of the Uruguayan rugby team whose plane crashed in the Andes.

5.Lost, 2004-2010 tv show. The only thing I really know about this show is that the writers were apparently also completely lost by the end. Blame it on the tv writers strike at that time, maybe.

6.Flight 29 Down. A 2005-2007 live action morning tv show made for and starring children. Inspired by Lost but without the paranormal stuff.I saw an episode of this some years after it first aired. It’s better than The New People.

The creators of Yellowjackets mentioned the show was inspired by Alive and Lost (and obviously bigly to Lord of the Flies), but there do seem to be nods to the other shows as well. Without giving any serious spoilers, apparently in the second season it’s determined they’re lost in the Canadian wilderness, even though they flew in the United States. That was what happened in Hey, I’m Alive! as well where the pilot started in Alaska but went off course due to the terrible weather and ended up in the Yukon wilderness.”

  1. Sands of the Kalahari (1965) what I remember? Whitman can’t act and Susannah York was smokin’ hot! 😮

    ok, mostly Susannah was a babe! xox. Continuing to digress …

    1. “Joseph E. Levine was keen for Stanley Baker and Cy Endfield to make another film in Africa after the success of Zulu (1963). They initially announced plans to adapt Wilbur Smith’s debut novel, When the Lion Feeds, but eventually decided on William Mulvihill’s The Sands of Kalahari. Baker persuaded his childhood friend Richard Burton to star along with his wife Elizabeth Taylor, but Taylor was reluctant to film in Africa and demanded more money than Levine was interested in paying.

      Burton pulled out and George Peppard and Susannah York were cast instead. However shortly after filming commenced, Peppard left the project (probably for The Blue Max), and Stuart Whitman was flown in as a replacement.

      The film was shot on location in the Kalahari Desert, with studio work done at Shepperton Studios in London.” ~ wiki

      Susannah or Liz? hmm It’s a toss-up. 🙂

  2. The New People was camp/cartoonish ie late ’60s early ’70s when tv studios/Hollywood was trying to be hip. 😛 Can you dig it? Knew that you could. Groovy! Far out!

    TBF The New People was only slightly worse than The Mod Squad. lol

    Keep the faith ~ solid!

    Digressing …

      1. Tiffany Bolling apologized for being in the film The Candy Stripe Nurses, saying that after doing such important programs like The New People, she felt she had let her fans down by being in such a terrible movie. Uhh, what?

    1. Have I mentioned this here before? Before Bea Arthur had her hit tv show, she did a different show with that character in which she played the head of a group of young counter culture police officers: The Maude Squad.

      It was mostly famous for being one of the first shows without a theme song. Instead the chief of the police showed a VIP around the building while describing what would become The Maude Squad’s case. At the end, the Chief would end up in front of Bea Arthur saying “…and then there’s Maude.”

  3. I remember “The New People” very slightly. I did not like it because it seemed typical of the way Hollywood and TV tried to appeal, or pander, to the young people of the late 1960’s, and was therefore kind of embarrassing and just not good. (I found lots of television shows too embarrassing to watch, because the characters on them did such dumb and humiliating things. From an early age, I could not watch “I Love Lucy”, for instance.)

    The only bits of an episode of “The New People” I remember involved the New People finding a supply of guns and ammunition in storage on the island. This caused trouble, and in the end they decided that guns were bad and they did not need them (certainly the latter was true) so they put them all back in storage. This demonstrated their morality, I guess. Meh.

    1. I don’t remember that series at all. I don’t think I was aware of its existence until this thread. (I have no idea how I could have missed it entirely.)

  4. There are several of the old Twilight Zone episodes where a plane crash is central to the plot, and in filming of the 1982 movie, a helicopter crash killed Vic Morrow and 2 children. Said crash is on Youtube:

  5. Maybe this one doesn’t count because it was a forced landing rather than a crash, but there was The Langoliers, the miniseries based on the Stephen King story. And according to Wikipedia there was another movie, called Survive!, based on that infamous Andes plane crash, filmed just four years after the actual event. Roger Ebert gave the movie zero stars.

  6. Don’t forget ‘Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome’ in which the kids who rescue Mel Gibson were survivors of a Lord of the Flies-style aircrash.

  7. I’ve enjoyed Yellowjackets bigly. The two timelines (wilderness 1996 and present day) with perfectly matched actors keeps you guessing who survived and how. It also toys with supernatural vs. “we are the evil” It has mostly been tight for two seasons. I hope the writers don’t ruin it by stretching it our too many more seasons

    1. I’ve only seen snippets of Yellowjackets and am not inclined to become a regular viewer, however I do have a question: how can there be a big mystery about who survived when you have scenes from present-day? At least for any of the characters seen in present-day, there’s no suspense.

      1. To not give any spoilers, near the beginning of the show, a person, who it turns out is a detective or ‘fixer’ said ‘a lot of the survivors went off the grid.’ So, at the start you only know of 5 or 6 of the survivors out of the 17 or so.

        Apparently the team had 15 members. I guess for 11 starters, 3 subs per game and the backup keeper, and there were a couple guys who were the sons of the person who paid for the plane trip and the coach. I don’t remember if all the team members survived initially, and one didn’t go, so there were up to 17 survivors to start.

  8. This is a really obscure one, but there was a tv movie that was part of “The Magical World of Disney” series, where they would air a mix of classic Disney movies and original made for tv movies. This one was called “Exile” and had a lot of recurring child / Disney actors in it, including Cory Feldman. It was basically a ripoff of “Lord of the Flies” except the kids are the ones that bring order / civilization, while any adults in it were bad.

  9. This fits nothing here, but since people here I like to think know I’m sincere, and somebody finally wanted to see this, I found the link again.

    Several years before ‘supply chains’ became a public phrase, I was discussing with a friend of mine about how to invest in stocks, and I told him that most people get it wrong because they think that if they read X company received some large order that they should buy shares in X company. But, it’s too late by then. The only way to attempt to make money in this case is to buy shares into whoever X company receives their supplies from, because that’s the ‘path less trodden.’ AKA supply chains. Or conversely, to sell short companies that may be hurt as a result of X company receiving the order.

    My friend said that not only was he way ahead of me on that, but that he had written a software program that mined business news on the internet to try to do that. Essentially an early A.I program. However, because he had other problems like a divorce which forced him out of his own home and a bad back, he went broke before he could test his own invention, and then he went into debt.

    I paid off his debt and to pay me back, he sent me the software program and told me I could do anything with it that I wanted. However, because he wrote it in Linux, I couldn’t do anything with it.

    I posted the program on Google Drive, if anybody wants to take a look at it. A had a friend a few years ago who took a quick look at it after it was first sent to me and they told me the program is legitimate in that there are no viruses on it, but he wasn’t a Linux expert either.

    This is the link to it if anybody wants to check it out.

    1. I’m curious, so I took a look. I unzipped a few of the files and they were binaries of some sort. The header indicated that it might be a word document, but I don’t have word on Linux, and LibreOffice thought it was a chart.

      I would speculate that it is mostly harvested data. The files names all have a timestamp in the filename. There were some files that had the word “perl” in the filename, those ones had Perl code in a binary of some sort. I’m not a Perl expert and there was a lot of code in there buried in there. It was weird to see Perl in a binary, since Perl is interpreted, not compiled.

      I lost the motivation after about 10 minutes. The story of my life, I suppose.

      1. Instead of zipping and tarring all in one go, he tarred and then zipped the file, but tarred it without an extension, so it was less obvious that it could be untarred.

        The timestamped files seem to be a horrible form of revision control. They contain his resume, a business plan, a preliminary outline for a webpage, and info on his bitcoin mining company.

        The perl archives are probably what you were talking about. They mostly seem to be files (libraries) that other people wrote, that he was going to call from his code to help harvest data. He doesn’t appear to have a document that describes how it should all work together, or even pseudocode to explain how things should work.

        I will say that he might have written it on Linux, but it wasn’t written in Linux. You can absolutely run this code on a Windows platform. It’s just Perl so you would need to install/run a Perl interpreter. Go to http://www.perl.org to download the interpreter for the OS of your choice. You can unzip bzip2 files on Windows. You can probably use either winrar or winzip to extract. I think you can then use 7zip to untar them into an archive. The archive will look weird because it will have a Linux folder hierarchy, but you will still be able to look at the files.

  10. What about that one where Tom Hanks’ closest friend is a volleyball?


    You didn’t specify that the film had to be based on the survivors of plane crashes. In that case, United 93 is not only based on a plane crash, but the crash is really the entire point of the film, although nobody survived.

    1. I thought Castaway was from a shipwreck not a plane crash.

      You should check out the pilot episode of The New People, not only is it possibly one of those ‘so bad it’s good things’ (I thought it was so bad that it was bad personally) it’s one of those rare tv shows that was 45 minutes long. It was paired with another 45 minute program, which doesn’t make sense these days either, because 90 minute blocks aren’t done now either. I know many of the early tv shows were 90 minutes long, like Playhouse 90 and early late night talk shows, but this was in 1969.

      1. Castaway is that 1980s film with Oliver Reed in full Reed mode. Has some good nudity from Amanda Donohoe. They choose to live like survivors, but there is no crash or shipwreck.

        Cast Away is the one with Tom Hanks surviving a plane crash. The only significant nudity is from Wilson the volleyball.

  11. “We Are Marshall” isn’t about a plane crash per se, but the story of the Marshall football team’s crash in the ’70’s could make this list.

    1. It’s actually kind of amazing these things don’t happen more frequently with sports teams. Horrible when it happens at all though, of course.

      1. It’s curious, in that many pro athletes have died in plane crashes, but not many teams. (Athletes on their own taking risks in sketchier aircraft?)

        Coming to mind: Roberto Clemente, Champagne Tony Lema, Rocky Marciano, Payne Stewart, Kobe Bryant (chopper), Thurman Munson, Roy Halladay …

        In addition to the pros, there’s the legendary Knute Rockne, college coach extraordinaire.

        1. When I was in college the first time in the early 1990s, I was sitting in a chair in the open room area and I guy I was in a class with came up to me and said out of nowhere “I fly small planes. You know what people who fly small planes are called?”



          I don’t know if it’s still the case, I doubt the technology is that much better from 30 years ago, but apparently small plane crashes are very common.

          1. That particular one was the subject of a Hollywood film, “We Are Marshall.” I think it is mentioned earlier in this thread.

            There is one major accident that I had completely forgotten. The entire U.S. figure skating team was killed while en route to the World Figure Skating Championships in Prague.

          2. As it says, that’s incomplete. There was a Russian Hockey League team – Lokomotiv – plane crash that killed all but one of the 45 passengers in 2011, including a former player for the Vancouver Canucks.

            From the initial report:
            Pavol Demitra, who played right wing for the Vancouver Canucks for two seasons (2008 to 2010) was one of 36 reported dead when the charter flight carrying his Kontinental Hockey League team crashed on take-off near the Russian city of Yaroslavl, 250 kilometres north of Moscow.

        2. Celebrities and other wealthy people are far more likely to travel in a private plane, and private planes crash much more often than passenger liners. I imagine that at least part of that is because of more consistent maintenance by airlines, the safety features built into modern airliners, and the superior training of pilots. It probably doesn’t hurt that airliners always have at least two pilots.

          While no additional plane crash movies or shows come to mind, I can recall two episodes of 1970s TV shows that dealt with a plane crash. The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman each aired episodes as part of their first season dealing with a plane crash. In fact, the Six Million Dollar Man episode “Survival of the Fittest” from 1974 and the Bionic Woman episode Fly Jamie from 1976 used the same script, with only minor changes. For instance, Oscar was with Steve for the his crash while Rudy was with Jamie. With the Internet and the ability to rewatch episodes on demand, I doubt a TV show would be quite that blatant in reusing a script today. I am sure they still reuse scripts, but they probably make at least twice as many small changes when they do.

          1. The original T.V pilot of the Six Million Dollar Man is kind of strange in that they use stock footage of a plane crashing, but the way the discussion goes, the only explanation for the crash is that it’s Steve Austin’s fault. He mentions that he’s having some kind of trouble, but then straightens the plane out and seems fine and says nothing more, but the stock footage shows him landing way too quickly, which would be entirely on him.

            They changed that in the intro used ‘we have the technology.’ As far as I can tell, this was one of the first shows without a theme song. There were also three one off t.v movies after the pilot which had Austin more as a James Bond type with a theme song sung by Dusty Springfield for at least one of them.

            For other plots that involve plane crashes, obviously there’s Wonder Woman as well, with Steve Trevor crashing on Paradise Island.

  12. Flight of the Phoenix x2, arguably the most famous on in this genre.

    Lost Horizon, also x2.

    The Mountain Between Us, Idris Elba and Kate Winslet.

    If you squint, you could might Planet of the Apes as one.

    1. Yes, absolutely, to Flight of the Phoenix. The 1965 original stars five Academy Award-winning actors, and a sixth (Ian Bannen) was nominated for his work here.

    2. Thanks, not familiar with Flight of the Phoenix or The Mountain Between Us and I didn’t remember Lost Horizon starting with a plane crash.

      If you include Planet of the Apes, I suppose you might have to include either the Six Million Dollar Man (a plane crash, but Steve Austin wasn’t lost) or Buck Rogers.

      I mainly mention those to go off topic that, as a former accountant, the Six Million Dollar Man annoys me as horribly wrong accounting. As anyone familiar with accounting knows, GAAP rules dictate that expenses are allocated against revenue in private sector accounting. Non profit and government accounting (which is the case here) are similar with expenses allocated against program spending. As far as I could tell from the pilot episode, the only cost counted in Steve Austin’s $6 million bionic were the costs of parts and labor for his eye, arm and two legs. I’m not even sure if his months of hospital stay or round the clock nursing care were included.

      The main thing though not included were a portion of the research and development costs, which were almost certainly in the tens if not hundreds of millions. Even for 1973 prices, Steve Austin was more like the $60 million Dollar Man. As John Belushi might have put it, that show could have done so much to teach GAAP rules to viewers, but noooooooooooo.

      1. As Billy Zane is the emperor of unsuccessful voyages, is there someone who has crashed down in several different films/shows?

        Peter Finch was in the first version The Flight of the Phoenix and the second version of Lost Horizon.

        Tom Hanks was in Cast Away and Sully (and his plane blew up in Cloud Atlas).

        I must be forgetting others.

        1. There’s also the movie about the guy who had survivor’s guilt being the only plane crash survivor. I think that was with Nic Cage.

          1. I can’t ID that one.


            One more, sort of: Final Destination is about people who survived a plane crash by not being on the plane they were supposed to take. As I recall, it didn’t work out as well for them as they originally thought.

          2. Found it. It’s called Fearless but with Jeff Bridges not Nic Cage. Generally good reviews but it seems some critics thought it was too philosophical for a mainstream movie but not philosophical enough to be a serious film on the issues around survivor’s guilt.

        2. Not an actor, but Robert Zemeckis directed two airplane crash movies, which might be a record: Cast Away (with Tom Hanks) and Flight (with Denzel Washington).
