I finished the final episode of 13 Reasons Why, and I need more. How can they just end the show there??
If you haven’t seen this show yet, you need to. It was so sad, but so amazing at the same time. I was absolutely addicted from Episode 1. Yeah, Indy, get addicted to a TV show when you have an essay to memorise and a PE assignment due that same day.
Stay calm, I’m not going to spoil anything if you haven’t reached the end, or haven’t started. If you have no idea what it is, 13 Reasons Why is based on the novel by Jay Asher, and is about the death of a teenage girl, Hannah Baker. But there’s more to the story then one might think.
Hannah Baker leaves behind a series of 13 tapes, 13 reasons as to why she took her own life. She delivered these tapes to the first person, before she committed suicide. The tapes are to go through all 13 people, so they can all understand what they did, and what the other 12 people did to kill Hannah Baker.
This show is absolutely amazing. At first I thought she was stupid for taking her own life over such small things, but as they build up, and get bigger and bigger, you start to understand.
One of the most impactful moments for me, is when she hints and then basically asks for help from the school, and they continue to do nothing. After everything they’ve seen and heard about whats been happening to her, and after she tells them about the very traumatising experience that she had suffered. They do nothing. I think this relates so truly to real life, especially after I’d watched this video about Eva Gutowski, and how she was sexually assaulted in school, and even then, in real life, no one had done anything.
If you haven’t seen 13 Reasons Why you need to. It’ll break your heart, but at the same time you won’t be able to stop watching.
