Watch it to guide discussions about issues covered in the series
23 May 2018 | by bettycjungSee all my reviews

5/23/18. Teens watching the series will most likely not bother with this post-script analyses. They probably should watch it to get a better handle on what the people behind the series are trying to do. I liked the explanations for the reasons why they decided to tackle the issues in the series. The 2nd season finale was a bit disturbing, but if it generates discussion, then that's a good thing. This film can be used to guide discussions about issues teens deal with in their emotional and school lives.
