    The writers accurately capture the center-of-my-own-universe angst of the teen mind, and this season’s mystery delivers on twists and OMFG moments. 13 Reasons Why finishes season 2 as a show you don’t so much enjoy as endure and appreciate later--much like adolescence itself.

    The strengths--the diverse cast, intriguing mystery--remain the same, while the weaknesses--an exploitative edge, inconsistent characterization--have failed to resolve themselves. What is new and improved, however, is Dylan Minnette as Clay Jensen. ... Minnette stands above the pack. His is a tour-de-force performance that goes a long way to making 13 Reasons Why’s second season feel worth the drama.

    The courtroom scenes are among the least convincing scenes in the series.

    Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why takes a dive in quality from the show’s first which, for all of its flaws, remains a moving tragedy and a potent conversation starter. ... Season 2 employs Polaroid pictures as the breadcrumbs propelling along its feeble mystery. Along the way it also leads us through Jessica’s journey as an assault survivor, indubitably the season’s strongest storyline.

    While it contains some touching moments as well as tender performances from its ensemble cast, the second season of 13 Reasons Why is, above all else, a string of 13 episodes struggling to justify their existence.

    The Netflix teen drama’s second season is occasionally arresting, but wholly unnecessary.

    The pace drags, the dialogue is unnatural and cheesy, the plot is dull and absurd, and most of the characters are still abhorrent. Watching is a chore, but there's no benefit at the end. There are zero reasons to put yourself through it.

This season, the producers have been more careful in portraying the taboo issue of suicide. After binge-watching 5 episodes, I have concluded that many aspects are much better than the first series, Katherine Langford and the main cast acting is at an all time high, the cinematography is phenomenal and the storyline is different, but is still very much like its predecessor, if not better. This will reach many teens. Expand

What message did you want to spend this season? that women should be silent even more to see that the accusation for rape did not help at all? by making them lose hope or even the desire to report their aggressor because of the fact that in the head drla and for what happens in the series did not advance anything, or that even after all that happened the bullying continued to happen in the college, that people bad remains unpunished and make people afraid to talk about what is happening so as not to be raped and beaten in the bathroom as happened to one of the characters in the last episode? This season was simply a joke, it was a bigger trigger even than the first, as far as capitalism does not go, we realize by these things that the biggest goal is not to help, but to profit. Expand
