Critic Reviews for 13 Reasons Why Season 1

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (19)

The drama is sensitive, surprising, consistently engaging, and, most important, unblinking.

Mar 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Here, the process is well thought out with the original material masterfully intact while the addition of new exploratory elements serve only to enhance the narrative.

Top Critic

In its examination of the ways we hurt each other, deliberately or casually, knowingly or otherwise, the adult edges to this story ring with honesty and truth. Because sometimes, the only way to feel something is for it to hurt.

Mar 31, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

13 Reasons Why, which follows the fallout after a student's suicide and then unravels the web that led her there, is an ambitious and uniquely sympathetic deep dive into the challenges of being in high school.

Top Critic

As the season ends, 13 Reasons Why takes a sharp ambulance turn toward corniness and cheese.

Jan 30, 2020 | Full Review…

13 Reasons Why is a show that wants to make a positive difference. But that strong earnestness seems to have been at the expense of actually investigating how certain themes could aggravate the problems the show seeks to remedy.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

In some ways, I do feel it glorified the suicide...but for me, what the series does is important, because it continues the conversation about rape and suicide. Was it a perfect portrayal? I don't know.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

At times harrowing, other times laughably like an after-school special, "13 Reasons Why" ends up dulling its important topics.

Nov 3, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

13 Reasons Why succeeds on the strength of its cast.

Oct 31, 2018 | Full Review…

The series is so enamored with this idea of Hannah as someone who does things to others that it neglects to tell us who she is herself. That's not only a failure to tell a story to its best and fullest extent; it's a missed opportunity on a broader scale.

Mar 7, 2018 | Full Review…

Its dual portrayals of the more subtle, insidious side of violence against women ends up being more visceral than HBO's goriest spectacles.

Sep 11, 2018 | Full Review…

13 Reasons Why is more than standard entertainment. This is the rare TV series that can not only alter perceptions, it could change someone's life.

Audience Reviews for 13 Reasons Why: Season 1

  • Jan 30, 2020
    I went with 2 stars I was going to give it more stars but 2 stars is a good rating for this show. The soundtrack is popular songs but awful covers, I did not read the book I might, I heard good things about it. I thought that this season was better then the 2nd. season. I have not yet seen the 3rd. season but I want to, I am also looking forward to the 4th. and last season. Very real life issues and the death/suicide part is hard to watch but the people who worked on the show in the extras to this season said they wanted to show the realness of suicide and death. 2 stars for 13 Reasons Why sad show but a good/real show worth the watch.
  • Jan 04, 2020
    Season 1 and Season 2 are the best. Season 3 makes it really bad and fucks up everything. Good tv show tho
  • Dec 15, 2019
    Garbage, as almost everything Netflix does. If they keep with these kind of garbage only, I'll cancel my subscription soon.
  • Dec 08, 2019
    good season because it shows why hannah killed herself and the people involved and brings some issue going on with teens
  • Nov 13, 2019
    Heartbreaking and definitely worth a watch, but keep in mind the series' source material is much, much better
  • Nov 12, 2019
    the worst tv series ive seen. this is garbage!
  • Nov 05, 2019
    Its very intense thats for sure and its very very true.This show hit me hard in a personal why and i think everyone should watch it to get a better understanding of deppresion and so on.Most people ignore these matters but they are 100%real,take it from someone who knows and get ready for a emotional trip down your own memories
  • Oct 26, 2019
    Season 1 will bring you to tears. Enjoy it while it lasts because seasons 2-3 will make you cringe.
  • Oct 22, 2019
    Thought provoking and gripping.
  • Oct 05, 2019
    Densa, repetitiva, que le cuesta horrores avanzar en la trama. Para nada recomendable.
