13 Reasons Why (2017)Developed by Brian Yorkey "13 Reasons Why" a.k.a. "Th1rteen R3asons Why" is a Netflix TV show adapted from a book by Jay Asher. High school student Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford) committed suicide two weeks prior – something which leaves her family devastated as there is seemingly no reason why she'd take her own life. While trying to cope with the loss, fellow student Clay Jensen (Dylan Minette) receives a box of audiotapes, recorded by Hannah. There are 13 recordings, each concerning one person / an incident that caused Hannah's suicide. Through the 13 episodes of Season 1 of this show, we get to piece together Hannah's story. The show is well made and received critical acclaim for how it dealt with themes such as suicide, depression and sexual abuse. While at times the show does get quite dark, I felt that some of the things that happen to the character weren't reasons enough to commit suicide (high school kids can be really nasty to others). Maybe that was the point – to tell us that you never know how your actions would affect others. Nevertheless, I thought it was engaging and I watched all the episodes in the span of a few days. The acting was good, and I liked the use of colour tones to differentiate events happening in the present (a cold bluish tint) and those in the past (a warm brown tint, more saturated image). I drew Katherine Langford as Hannah Baker. This was done in pencil (red parts were done in colour pencil) and scanned. #260 / 25-May-17
