Was there ever a proper thread for 13 Reasons? Giving the first season another go. Three episodes in now, and man, the whole secret-society-of-jocks-who-were-on-the-list is possibly the worst addition to the TV show. Just drags it out just so they can throw in a little bit of suspense beyond "why is Clay on the tapes when you only ever see him being buddies with Hannah" I can only assume that's what the second (and third) season will focus on? Would much rather a feature-length edit that cut all this bullshit out. Keep it close to the book, not sowing seeds for another season.
The music is pretty spot on, though. That's the one thing they got *right* with this.
13 Reasons? It's a shame, really. The book is great, and I loved Next to Normal, which was written by Brian Yorkey (and covered some pretty heavy subjects for a musical) but he seems to have utterly ruined this.

Powering through the latter half of the first season of 13 Reasons Why now, it's definitely picking up steam. Episode 11 now:
Clay going full crazy with the foreign exchange students "Hey Justin! Where's my bike?"
I'd totally forgotten Jeff died, too. I heard the principal mentioning they'd "lost two students" in an earlier episode and was trying to figure out who or where. That whole episode was brutal. Clay telling Jeff's parents the truth and apologising because he'd assumed that Jeff was drunk driving
