13 REASONS WHY: SEASON 1 REVIEWED

“13 Reasons Why” is the hit Netflix series that was inspiring hundreds of kids across the country to try suicide. Faster than you can say ill-conceived Heathers reboot, the show faded from the mainstream. While plans for a second season remain on schedule, now is the time to revisit the morbid magic of the original. After the 12 hours invested in this wonderful look at self-absorbed kids, I’m tapping out. But, why?

Regardless of the talented Katherine Langford and Dylan Minnette, the nature of the material doesn’t lend itself to grand drama anymore. The parts that work are Langford’s ability to frame High School life around the experience of a disconnected young girl. But, that’s about it. The rest of the series is about establishing a microcosm of barely formed personalities trying to make a micro-society that exceeds their parents’ understanding.

By making something as serious as one girl’s suicide matter more than everything, we start treading onto brave new ground. But, is the ground worth it? Well, Dylan Minnette gets to fall in love with a dead girl via her tapes. So, I guess it’s a modern romance? I know the show has fans, but don’t count me as one.
