June 14, 2018
A frank, bold, important look at modern teenage life. But, as with most series, it isn't for everyone.
May 23, 2018
The new episodes are watchable, but both the story and the message end up suffering as they jostle for airtime.
May 23, 2018
What's most important is the circumstances of how Chloe's crisis began and continues... [her] small part in the drama's imperfect plot may serve the new season's highest purpose.
May 22, 2018
At its best, the series is a (highly dramatized) depiction of what happens when someone dies suddenly and everyone involved spirals out of control.
May 21, 2018
Will no doubt bring its own set of controversies. But 13 Reasons Why does something important in its sophomore run: it makes the characters likable.
May 18, 2018
Though 13 Reasons Why can sometimes be as exasperating and melodramatic as teenagers themselves, the second season nets out as a success despite some overly-instructive moments and one truly baffling storytelling device.

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.
May 17, 2018
13 Reasons Why season 2 doesn't just live up to its predecessor - it is much better than it. It's also much, much darker.
May 17, 2018
Season 2 is a worthy attempt at a do-over, if a flawed one.
May 16, 2018
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.

May 16, 2018
For the teens who drove the show to massive popularity, season two will likely be just as binge-worthy as the first.
June 14, 2018
If Season 2 was about healing and about letting go,... then maybe the show should follow its own themes and move on.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
June 11, 2018
13 Reasons Why lacks the nuance essential to navigating this terrain.
June 7, 2018
As with the first season, 13 Reasons Why is not an easy, breezy Saturday night binge but there's something addictive about it, that is until you remember teen angst has a limited shelf life.
June 6, 2018
The second season feels more like dealing with the aftermath of the first season's criticism, while lacking a true narrative of its own.
May 25, 2018
The second season is an even more problematic dumpster fire. Like the kind of dumpster fire that can spread rapidly to other buildings and really make a giant, fiery mess of things.
May 25, 2018
13 Reasons Why's first season had its issues, but its second season is nearly unwatchable.
May 25, 2018
Remains ridiculously gratuitous and irresponsible... It is bleak and depressing, scarringly graphic and stupidly glamorising in its treatment of guns and ideas of vengeance.
May 25, 2018
The second season of Netflix's controversial teen drama 13 Reasons Why has fans asking a lot of questions.
May 24, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
