If this season premiere feels a little imbalanced, that's because it is. 13 Reasons Why is one of the many Netflix shows that would benefit from episodes being pared down to 45 minutes, or even half an hour.
Dark and somewhat melodramatic secrets are unfolding, as before. All of this is much as it ever was, but has the same problems. "Look at all these beautiful young people!" it says. "Don't you want to be like them? You do! And that's fine! But don't."
As the second season careens toward a conclusion that was already heavily hinted at in the first season finale, it becomes increasingly clear that 13 Reasons Why isn't about uncovering trauma, but perpetuating provocation.
