Season 1 3/5 Season 2 fucked the end of the season with a totally non-realistic scene, some of the dialogues are just nonsense and some plots make no sense with the history told in the 1 season It was way too slow, specially 2 season Good points soundtrack, performances, touched complicated themes as rape, bullying and suicide, how some scenes were explicit, I think it contributed to the narrative
As someone who has been personally touched by suicide, some parts of this show are particularly hard to watch. Regardless, one thing is true: you never know how the smallest action may impact someone's life. One must speak out, one can't just watch otherwise it'll be too late. It'll eat you up and spit you out.
can't really be objective here cause I guess these shows apply to teenagers. If it was around when I was in high school, I'd probably have liked it. But now, I really have neither the interest, nor the patience to watch a story about how a bunch of teenagers make a huge deal out of literally everything
Recording an analog manifesto and disseminating it to the people who you feel are personally responsible for your suicide is a vindictive and manipulative thing to do, to say the least - but Hannah Baker is allowed to be those things and so much more thanks to the complex characterization that episodic storytelling affords. A dreamy and soft as air synth score from Eskmo is the Gregg Araki-esque icing on this cake.
Re-rating. I originally wrote this off as 'revenge fantasy' suicide glorifying propaganda that would have the opposite sociological implication to its root intention. I was wrong. Whilst there are flaws, and the melodramatic Americanisms grate, I can understand (as a teacher) why pupils have taken to this contentious but profound evaluation of broken adolescent souls.
Another failed attempt in discussing a difficult topic with a worldwide auditorium. Mental illness is not explicitly mentioned in any of the episodes - the show missed a good opportunity to discuss the most important cause leading to suicide. The context of the show is very complicated. That's just not how it works.
