Alison Herman We abhor most in others what we already hate in ourselves. So it is that Amy Lau (Ali Wong) and Danny Cho (Steven Yeun) become mortal enemies despite being kindred spirits. The protagonists of the Netflix half-hour “Beef” first meet when both are behind the wheel, navigating the parking lot of a Lowe’s-like home improvement store. Each driver is there for different reasons: Danny is a handyman who works at the Reseda motel his family used to own; Amy owns a houseplant boutique the hardware chain is in talks to acquire. But both react in the exact same way to a minor spat over exiting a spot. Their explosive road rage propels the pair on a chase across the suburban San Fernando Valley, then through 10 episodes of increasingly out-of-hand emotional warfare.
