A show that has been everywhere- on and off the internet is ’13 Reasons Why’. I just binge watched it and I loved it. I cannot really word myself properly because the show has left me with this empty feeling. For those of you who don’t know what the show is about or haven’t really heard of it (which mostly is impossible); it is the story of Hannah Baker- who committed suicide for which the reasons are unknown. But each episode progresses with 13 tapes she made, each having a reason for the decision that she ultimately took upon herself. I would not say the show left my mind disturbed. But it made me upset; especially since I have experienced mild cases of bullying myself when I was younger. It was real. It was reality in its rawest form and it shows society’s lackadaisical attitude towards issues which should be taken seriously.
Apart from that, from all the shows that I have watched, ’13 Reasons Why’ has the best music selection. That is something that heightened all the emotions for every scene without a doubt. So, if you haven’t watched the show, go watch it now!
My favourite moment from the show was the part where Clay has a flashback of their prom night and how Hannah and him danced to slow music. That scene always tears me up.
Here are some of my favourite quotes from the show:
“Your pain is important to other people.”
“I think sometimes you judge people. We all do, but I think sometimes you live to regret it.”
“Life is unpredictable and control is just an illusion. And it makes us feel small and powerless.”
“Some of you care. None of you cared enough.”
“You can’t go back to how things were or how you thought they were. All you really have is now.”
“You see the world as binary. It’s a mosaic. Look at this mass of humanity. Hundreds of stories. It’s kind of beautiful.” (my most favorite)
