Goofs

In Episode 1 (and Tape 1, Side A) Hannah says that there are 13 sides to every story, and that this is the reason for making 13 tapes. However, at the time she recorded the first tape, she had only planned on making 12, which she reveals in Episode 12. She didn't intend to record a conversation with Mr. Porter until days later.

Heartbreaking examination of a life
31 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

I have seen three episodes so far and 13 REASONS WHY is heartbreaking, honest and thoughtful. It handles its subject with tenderness and doesn't fool around to point out the flaws of its characters.

They seem real, they act real.

Hannah's narration is short, poignant and sharp. She intends to hurt, she's bitter and she wants the world to know why she did what she did. And Justin is us. We uncover what it's left of the world through his eyes.

Every new character adds up to the feeling of sadness that fills up the whole show. Its thorough examination of the chain of events leading up to a suicide shouldn't be ignored.

Don't miss it, you'll regret it.

9.5/10
