this con­tro­ver­sial drama has been praised and crit­i­cised for its han­dling of teenage sui­cide, some claim­ing the de­pic­tion is too graphic while oth­ers agree with the show’s mak­ers that an un­flinch­ing por­trayal might help pre­vent it. Based on a book of the same name, it fol­lows the ‘13 rea­sons why’ 17-year-old Han­nah (Kather­ine Lang­ford) took her own life, which she ex­plains in sev­eral tapes she made for her ‘fren­e­mies’. As we re­live their wrong­do­ings through flash­backs and Han­nah’s nar­ra­tion, her friend Clay (Dy­lan Minette) at­tempts to un­cover the truth. A com­pelling story, with tough-to-watch scenes. A sec­ond se­ries is slated for re­lease on Net­flix next year.
