Season 1 Review


While it could at times favor sensationalism and buzz-topics over natural storytelling, the first season of 13 Reasons Why was often a genuine and affecting look at teenage life and grieving. This is mostly do to the direction and acting; Langford and Minnette make for a pair of compelling leads, and much of the season's emotional impact results from their work. The rest of the cast does some strong work as well. The scripts were more unfocused than needed, and could've used more clarity and more character moments instead favor forward plot movement.

That's not to say that the movement is that fluid. 13 episodes were about two or three too many; many side plots could've been dropped (episode "Tape 5, Side B" could've been excised entirely") and/or expedited. The season finale was also something of a missed opportunity; it leaves to many balls hanging in the air when what it needed was resolution. There'll be a second season, so many of these threads could be cleared up, but a complete story would've been preferable to drawing already thin stories out.

Best Episode: "Tape 6, Side A"
While "Tape 3, Side A" had a few of the series best scenes, the catharsis of "Tape 6, Side A" was more important to the story. After waiting the whole season for Clay's tape, the show doesn't disappoint with the most emotional episode of the series. The pain and regret of the episode register so powerfully that I was willing to forgive the other episodes' missteps. Had the season (hell, even series) ended after this episode, it would've been the perfect capper and would've likely notched my overall grade up by a letter. It's the best written, directed and acted of the bunch.

Weakest Episode: "Tape 5, Side B"
As I already mention, this was the episode that felt the most expendable. It was padding so the season could hit 13 episodes. Very little of this episode makes much of an impact on the overall story.

Season Grade: B+
