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.
This new season is frustrating at times, and silly during much of its run, but there are still scenes of caring friendship, of tentative romance or raw loneliness that make up for some of the trite and forced plot developments.
Because the first season covered the entire novel this new batch of episodes attempt to keep the story going. There's one fatal flaw: It really is just rewinding itself, going over everything that happened previously but with added twists.
