13 Reasons Why

Quite the buzz online over the new Netflix YA novel adaptation, 13 Reasons Why. Hoping for a sophisticated series speaking to both teens and adults. Great group of professionals involved in the production: Tom McCarthy, Helen Shaver, Jessica Yu, Gregg Araki. I watched four episodes. Didn’t feel as compelling the more I delved into the series. In particular, the minor male characters felt too stereotyped and dumbed-down. Also, I didn’t believe the dyed blond boy was straight. On a positive note, many of the minor adult characters were populated with strong actors in particular Kate Walsh as Hannah’s Mom. Maybe I should have hung in there, but there’s just so much in my queue. 3 out of 5. Next.
