A couple of weeks ago - the TV adaptation of the YA book "13 Reasons Why"? popped up on Netflix. If you're not familiar with the story - here's a quick synopsis:
Based on the best-selling books by Jay Asher, the Netflix Original Series 13 Reasons Why follows Clay Jensen (Dylan Minnette) as he returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker—his classmate and crush—who tragically committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Will Clay be one of them?
1) This show is addicting
2) This show is massively entertaining
3) This is the brutal show I've ever seen
Man this show is heavy (I mean read what it's about). The more we dig into the story of Hannah and the lives of these characters, the more deep, dark and brutal this show getsYes you can make arguments that other shows (Game of Thrones, Homeland etc)have more violence and sex. However, I've never seen any show tackle real life issues like suicide, bullying and the sexual assault of children in a more real and devastating way.
Careful: 13 Reasons Why will get ya
