Goofs

Jeff's accident is ruled to be the result of drunk driving because of the presence of alcohol in his car. However, in the case of all traffic accidents resulting in death, thorough investigations are always conducted, including toxicology reports. Jeff would undergo a mandatory autopsy to determine the exact cause of death and therefore it would be known that he was not intoxicated at the time of the accident. See more »

Season 2 ruined it
20 May 2018 | by ezgi-deniz98See all my reviews

My review is based on season 2 because I feel like it takes the entire show out of it's original story. The bad writing and storylines ruined a perfectly scripted series and made it into a drama high school show. It is still a unique story about a serious subject with amazing actors. But that doesn't change the fact that season 2 was absolute nonsense and didn't need to happen.
