I watched the first one last night, interesting concept of a story!

I like that most actors on the show are not that well known for some reason

I thought the first episode was at first a bit slow because I thought when are they going to be mean to her, but by episode's end I saw it and I was feeling sorry for her!

I finished it, it was a good show
There were two scenes that were way too much (too graphic and too long)
Spoiler:

The casting was good.

and I have not watched a teen drama in a long time

I weren't too sure if i wanted to start this on top of university work, but I started last night and I'm half done. I'll review episodes 1-5.

yeah, I kind of sped through those two scenes, especially the second one.

I finished the first 2 episode like Clay I am going through it slowly I do think there might be some parts where Hannah could be a unreliable narrator like what happend between her and Jess

the show is def. over dramatic. I realize they wanted to do 13 episodes for each of the tapes but i feel like they could have done like the first tape as the pilot and then the rest of the tapes with 2 sides per episode. so there was only like 7.

because it does feel drawn out and i'm only up to episode 4.

I desperately want to watch more but i just have no time, but this weekend its gonna be my focus to finish it, its definitely a riveting story to watch IMO.

I feel awful for Hannah, she has a lot of crap being thrown at her. Nobody should have to go through all that. But its hard for me to understand her POV on Clay so far because the scenes we've seen of them are just really sweet and Clay seems very obviously interested in her so maybe Hannah should have made a move too?

i do agree that so far her personality seems very in your face, its interesting that the bullying and crap thrown at her affected her so much because a lot of people go through similar things that shes been through (i am saying so far from what ive seen in terms of the bullying and stuff) and they can handle it, and her personality seems that way... So I agree they should have made her a bit more reserved, a bit sadder/more closed off etc.

^I agree with everything.

I think my opinion on the whole premise is that of the goth in it. The fortune telling friend of Clay.

I'm glad you agree about her personality.

Spoiler:


I finished the show and I must say, on a whole it was decent. The rape scene didn't really bother me because we didn't get to see much.


This whole show just watches/reads as terrible Fan Fiction.

I am actually a little spoiled cause I wanted to know when to fast forward certain scenes so I think she does it cause of what happens in later tapes and those events were little things in the beginning like were not at the big thing yet

After watching the show, I really need to read the book.

Just to see if I like the book or tv series more.

I'm going to watch the finale on my lunch break today. Ahhh. I have no clue how they're going to wrap this up in one more hour.

I'm on episode 4. My favorite thing about this episode and the progression so far is they show how Justin, Jessica, and Alex are effected by everything. It's no longer just Hannah's parents and Clay who seem really distraught.

The kids who were mean to her are showing remorse, and I think that's an important lesson to learn.

^ Yeah, I agree about the kids show remorse since I don't remember that they didn't show that in the book, but I guess that we see that from Clay's POV.. But it been long time since i read it..

Really, you think this subject matter is "terrible fan fiction"

One of my classmates died from suicide when I was in 8th grade, so don't call it 'terrible fanfiction'.

This show could save somebody's life.
