Trivia

Interiors for the school classrooms and hallways were filmed on-location at an actual school for the first two episodes, until the show's Set Construction crew could catch up. For the remainder of the show, school interiors were filmed in an exact replica of Analy High School built on a soundstage, to accommodate easier filming logistics. See more »

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.

Don't bother with season 3
24 August 2019 | by jesselawrence-16755See all my reviews

First season brilliant. Second was alright but the third is awful. You can't add a new character and make her the main part. I hate her and can't watch it because of her. Going by other reviews I'm not the only one. Whoever wrote her part needs punishing
