You may have seen all over social media everyone has talked about the new Netflix show “13 Reasons Why.” I took the time to watch it myself and the show was pretty good. I binge watched it in two days. It’s basically about a girl named Hannah who commits suicide, but before this happens she made cassette tapes for people who changed her life in a terrible way. It’s also a book if you’re interested in reading it.
I believe this show connected to many viewers. The rawness of it brought out problems that some people deal with on the regular. It’s not your typical happy-go-lucky high school tv show or movie. It showed the reality of high school whether you’re a loner or a popular kid. Some kids are pretty cruel which makes high school life even harder. I’m glad the creator touched on the subject which is suicide and more touchy subjects. Suicide is a common thing that happens too often. It happens after a person plots it for a while and wants to release pain from balled up feelings inside. Well, that’s my definition of it. Do anyone else agree with it? Hannah took the time to plot out her stories for the cassette tapes for each person that did her wrong. She made sure she spilled out every truth behind each story and left no details out about them. The stories to each person pulled at their conscious. I’m not going to lie it even had me thinking about my actions towards others. This show knows how to play mind games with you. You’ll have to figure out who’s good or bad…no scratch that who’s trustworthy or not. None of the “friends” Hannah thought she had actually realized how every little joke or mistake they made turned her life into hell. Listening to the tapes gave them full of regrets though. I’m glad she did do this because they deserved it. Hannah was a sweet girl who was special in her own way, but I hate people started nasty rumors about her. I love her character because she was very brave to deal with the drama as long as she did. This is the type of show you have to pay close attention to understand what’s going on. It reminds me of Pretty Little Liars a bit. Every scene gives you clues to predict what may happen next. Towards the end of this first season, it gets very intense. I cried (why am I so emotional lol) everything spun out of control. Yes, this is when you’ll finally hear Clay’s tape. You will be eager to listen to it. I’m not going to spoil anything for you all though. If you haven’t watched this show yet go check it out on Netflix. It’s worth watching trust me.
