Aussie boy's thoughts
13 Reasons Why turns its gripping suicide mystery into a boring murder mystery with an uneven conclusion. It really should’ve finished after the first or at least the second season, but they made the mistake of continuing with a mystery around the death of the most hated character in the show. Unlike the first season which has voice-overs of Hannah’s tapes or how the second season has voice-overs of the student testifying, Season 3 is narrated by a new annoying character. They felt the need to have thirteen full episodes, so the story mostly heads nowhere and is extremely boring but interesting at times. And for a series that sheds light on mature subject matter, there’s thankfully a lot of humour in this season.
