13 Reasons Why season one was released on March 31, 2017, as a Netflix original series. I wanted to write specifically about this series because of how strongly I believe in it and the message behind it. I binged watched this 13-episode series in about 3 days right after it was released on Netflix. I can honestly say this was the best series I have ever watched.
The plot summary of this series, from IMDb:
Thirteen Reasons Why, based on the best-selling books by Jay Asher, follows teenager 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 a group of cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) -his classmate and crush-who tragically committed suicide two weeks earlier. On tape, Hannah unfolds an emotional audio diary, detailing the thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Through Hannah and Clay’s dual narratives, Thirteen Reasons Why weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect viewers.
