Whatever this is. Episode 5 ‘Nature’

Episode 5 of Whatever this is. has arrived and sees the gang swapping the city for the titular nature of upstate New York in an ambitious multi-strand narrative episode.

Shot mostly in Cazenovia, NY and Pine Plains, NY, ‘Nature’ finds our favourite production assistants Sam (Hunter Canning) and Ari (Dylan Marron) filming a nature documentary – featuring tree-lover and sun-saluter Jaseph (Phillip Taratula) – that’s half Jason, half Joseph, in case you were wondering.

Getting out of the city prompts us all to behave recklessly sometimes – why, the tales I could tell about quick and dirty getaways to Magaluf – and sure enough, Sam and Ari both have transformative experiences during the course of this episode.

Of course while the cat’s are away, the mouse will play: finding herself at a loose end, Lisa (Madeline Wise) is roped into making some quick cash for doing very little – but in a most peculiar way…

Featuring some of the best visuals the show has ever done, ‘Nature’ proves once again that the team behind Whatever this is. are some of the best up and comers in the business.

If you’re new to Whatever this is. and haven’t seen the previous episodes yet, then get a goddamn hold of yourself and catch up now.
