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.

User Reviews

 
Should have been one season only
8 June 2020 | by blackwarrior-15314See all my reviews

Season one was great. If you've heard good things about this show, it's more than likely things being said about the first season. The second season is okay but not as good, and then the last two are pretty bad. They're entertaining don't get me wrong-but in some of the worst ways possible. In my opinion, it turned into a show where they were exploiting serious issues just for shock value and to keep the show running-as opposed to addressing those issues and tackling them with a storyline that makes coherent sense.
