Thirteen reasons why (2017; season 1)

I have been binge watching this series in two days straight. It was a rollercoaster. I am so excited to tell you what I thought because this series has become viral. Now it isn’t a happy series at all, but it’s good to talk about.

Where is the series about? 

The series follows Clay Jensen, in his quest to uncover the story behind his classmate and crush, Hannah, and her decision to end her life.

What did I think?

It was intense. It was a very good, interesting series but it was intense. It was a good series and it did explain a whole lot. I do think it’s a good thing for everyone to see. To understand what goes on in a mind of someone that takes their own live. And I would just recommend you to watch it and make up your own mind.

Spoilers from here on out

I do think that even though all those people did things that led her to her suicide I don’t think it was there individual fault. You cannot (ever) blame someone for your mental health. People might do things that do not help your mental health. And some people did worse things than other. However, none of these people made her kill herself. That was all Hannah. It is terrible to blame others because she had serious mental issues and she needed to see a professional. The counsellor at her school might have sucked but it was everything on top of the other. Everything on top of someone that was already mentally unstable.

We can all be a bit kinder, and all a bit nicer but it wasn’t their fault. Especially Clay, Clay was the sweetest kind of guy she could have met. Besides it was terible of Hannah to do that to him, knowing full well how his mental health was. Therefore it’s very telling how terrible her own was.

Hannah’s problem was her mental health and you don’t hear much about that. I did like the series and it has value but for younger teens this isn’t the series to watch. An adult mind can see this and see the perspective of the girl that wasn’t mentally alright whereas a lot of teen really can’t I think. It is good for a series to have people talking about rape, abuse and suicide.

Overall a good series and an interesting watch.

Lots of love,

Melissa
