Critic Consensus: By deviating from its source material, 13 Reasons Why can better explore its tenderly crafted characters; unfortunately, in the process, it loses track of what made the show so gripping in the first place.

13 takes some of the heat off itself with an over-packed second season that doesn't quite walk back the controversies of the first, but attempts to talk them back.
13 Reasons Why features no shortage of missteps. But it's a show that so deeply feels for its characters, so deeply feels these scenarios, that it's hard to be mad at it.
I was astounded by how 13 Reasons Why seemingly took criticism from its freshman and applied it thoughtfully while staying true to the show's characters and message. 13 Reasons Why is not an easy watch, but it remains a meaningful one.
