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 »

Heartbreaking examination of a life
31 March 2017 | by edfp19See 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
