Clay Jensen is a young man who comes home one day to find a mysterious box with his name on it. The content consists of a set of cassettes featuring his classmate Hannah Baker.

13 Reasons Why season 1

Strong series. Intense fits the description. Acting was very strong, editing and soundtrack were fortunately also well put together.

And what the series does really well is to create discussion about the subject. Not that there isn't, but even now that organizations are throwing themselves into the series and, for example, rejecting the fact that the act itself was depicted in such a graphical way is bad for people who walk around with similar problems.

What the series also translates well is that the victim, Hannah in this case, is not without flaws. Enough moments when you think you should have done differently. But also with those who were responsible in her truth you see that sometimes intentions are different and the result is not what you wish and that you are not directly a bad person. There are really only three characters that I couldn't get any sympathy for (Bryce first of course, and next to that Courtney and Marcus. What was perhaps a bit too much on top of it were the roles of the various parents.

Contrary to what some say that the series offers little solution, I do not completely agree. The series has a certain ending. But the issue is also put to the viewer. What would you have done as an outsider/friend?

Cause-effect.

Letting someone know that you care and are listening.

13 Reasons Why season 2

Not a bad season at all. I also had my doubts about the existence of a 2nd season, but I am positively surprised. Is it top notch? It doesn't, but like the first season, it looks addictive and following the lives of the teenagers in the aftermath of Hannah's death is very interestingly done. Actually, I haven't been able to discover any real downsides, apart from the fact that the presence of Hannah was a bit forced here and there. However, it was not disturbing, partly due to another good game by Langford. The rest of the cast is also in better shape compared to the previous season, and no one is left out.

This season's mvp is clearly Walsh as Hannah's mother who manages to evoke emotion in the viewer.

A third season? I think he can come. The end of this second season can be viewed in two ways, so I wouldn't argue with a new season. Perhaps the series can continue in spin-off form, , as Hannah's story is now really finished. However, there is potential and interest in the rest of the teenagers, so why not?

By the way, my compliments to the makers about certain events in the last episode. Very confronting but oh so necessary that it is really exposed. There is no compromise with the viewer and that is daring, especially after all the criticism of the suicide scene from last season. Accusations that this is only for shock value are not valid in my opinion.

13 Reasons Why season 4

Where I found the first season almost magically good and innovative, the second a lot less and the third even stronger, this fourth season really disappointed me. Dramatically bad.
I experienced it as messy, vague and stripped of all the charm from the previous seasons.

This season (again) is very dependent on hallucinations of Clay in particular, which I was really done with in episode 1. I get that this is supposed to represent his fears and panic, but it often felt like filler and was mostly overkill. When also the other characters get it, it gets more and more unrealistic.
Episode four is a bad horror movie, the next episode is even crazier.
This season was unnecessary for me: the viewer is always presented with a mystery, it is simply not interesting anymore and it completely misses the point. There are so many improbabilities in it that the interest in the course diminishes further and further (Winston playing the detective, a school shoot that goes on way too long for an exercise, Clay coming out of a escaped from a highly guarded state and then did not have to go back, parents who fully supervise their children through school and so on).

One big disappointment.

13 Reasons Why season 4

I've never seen such a bad season, what a mess. The people above me have touched on everything, it was an agony to see. I wish I could watch it again, but later I regret it.
