have you watched 13 reasons why? and if you have what is your opinion on it?
Overly pretentious, self absorbed, edgy ‘teen drama’ that
unintentionally intentionally glamorizes suicide and makes it look attractive to those who are easily triggered sending the message that yes, they too, can plot a convoluted postmortem revenge fantasy complete with bitter selfie-style tape recordings to send to your friends and family to make the sting hurt real bad. Girl they select to commit suicide seems super pretty and super confident and super manipulative with guys and oh so super in control of staging her suicide and manipulating people from beyond the grave. Jeez, she sure could’ve put her confidence and skills to much better use than in something so fruitless. “I’ll show them!” Uh, wait, no you actually won’t because you won’t be around for any of it. smh.
That is just not how suicide is, either. In the real world with real people. They could at least show some respect on the subject matter with some regard, care and consideration instead of using suicide as a cool device to further their ratings boost.
Gratuitous, blatant showing of suicide scene. Why. Just whyyy. Did they they somehow delude themselves into thinking that showing this would prevent teen suicide? Give me a break. They just wanted to show the whole thing to be bold and edgy cause hey, kids are all hip and down with the gore these days. People will talk and it’ll boost their ratings. Gross. Irresponsible af.
The worst idea for a show. Has no redeeming value whatsoever except to make intricate suicide planning a cool thing to do.
And don’t even get me started on the rumored Season 2 school shooter theme.
I mean, if they’re actually gonna pull that shit as tv entertainment, can we at least have the Basement Tapes instead please? It’s the real deal and we can actually learn from it.
