Ok, thoughts on 13 Reasons Why….Here it goes. Be warned: There will likely be spoilers.
When I turned it on, I was expecting it to be hard to watch. The things I’d heard said that it was challenging to watch, it was convicting, and also that it glorified suicide. While the last episode with the actual suicide was hard to watch (I had to turn away), the rest of it seemed like a typical teenage angst-filled high school tv show where there is a lot of unnecessary drama. Overall, the main idea seems to be that parents and teachers should pay more attention to their kids and friends should be more “friendly”.
