TV: 13 Reasons Why – Season 1

Premiered: March 31, 2017

On: Netflix

Starring: Dylan Minnette, Katherine Langford, Christian Navarro, Alisha Boe, Brandon Flynn, Justin Prentice, Miles Heizer, Ross Butler, Devin Druid, Amy Hargreaves, Derek Luke & Kate Walsh 

You must’ve heard about 13 Reasons Why by now. The Selena Gomez-produced show received great praise from both critics and fans when it premiered, but later suffered from intense online backlash.

Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) commits suicide and sends out a box of 13 tapes that explain why. The rules are simple: You get the tapes, listen to them, and then send them on to the next person. In the show, Clay Jensen (Dylan Minette) has the tapes.

Jay Asher‘s 288-page book is limiting in expanding storylines, so this 13-episode series allows for that. Or you might just yell at Clay to listen to the tapes.

While the teenage cast is incredible and makes the high school scenes very realistic, watch out for an absolutely heartbreaking performance by Kate Walsh as Hannah’s mom.

Final say: Get help if you need help. ★★★★☆
