I think it's clear he's going to prison for a long long time.
Clear? No. I didn't get that at ALL.
Should he? YES! But I could easily see that going in his favor.
I already saw talk of a season 2, but I didn't read how they would do it since I haven't even finished S1 yet.
Are untagged spoilers allowed in this thread, because I'm seeing a bunch.
They have Bryce's confession on tape, and the Bakers have the digital copy. There's no way he's getting out of that.
Brad: if you think high school kids don't have tattoos, you're delusional.
My kids watched this before me. They are 15 and 17. I'm not thrilled that the 15 yo watched it before I had. But it's sparked some good conversations between us.
They were leaving for softball yesterday as I was watching episode 12. They rushed out, with lots of "I love yous".
I first took "best ass" to mean "has the best ass," and then it doesn't seem like what he did is so bad. But when I though of it as "is the best ass" then it takes on a completely different meaning, which perpetuates Hannah's reputation of being a slut that Justin/Bryce created.
And I knew that Mr Porter had to be on one of the tapes. I cannot believe how badly he handled that.
this show will stay with me for a while. good quality TV
I'm sure some 18 year old seniors in high school have tattoos. But the amount of tattoos on pretty much everyone really took me out of the moment. Most states don't allow it unless you're 18. Many have exceptions with parental consent, but the sheer amount - that was NOT realistic at all.
One persons suggestion and I think it is a solid and great option would be to follow Tyler (the photographer) in Season 2. You could even sprinkle in Hannah as the flashbacks would work for him and you can always use his pictures as story telling devices. The open ended aspect of him with the guns and pictures hanging in the dark room clearly could setup a Season 2 opening of him performing a high school shooting of all the bullies. Each episode could be about each picture he hung in the dark room and how he too was bullied by these same dozen or so kids. Could be super powerful and really hit home the same concept of felling so isolated and alone in high school.
Not knowing much about this show, I just discovered my 14 year old daughter (well adjusted) has been watching it on her phone. I'll have to investigate and watch myself to see what it's all about. Anything I should be concerned with to begin with?
I think it's a good thing that she's watching. You should too and have a conversation after.
FYI to other parents, this show is super popular with the teens right now (both younger and older), so I think it would be safer to assume they probably have seen it then to assume they haven't. My teen daughter (almost 17) and I watched it together (just finished night before last) and apparently she's one of the last people she knows at her school to watch it as everyone else has already seen it.
As far as your question, without getting too spoilery......the entire show is about a girl that winds up committing suicide and she leaves behind tapes for the people she blames for driving her there. The suicide scene is pretty graphic. There are also a couple of other scenes regarding other topics that I will not spoil...but they are fairly graphic. There is lots of teen drinking, fighting, bullying, pot smoking and sex, if that's a concern for you. Lots and lots of language, too. The eff word is a particular favorite with them. LOL
That being said, it's fairly well done and unless your kid is home schooled or goes to some ultra-conservative type school, these are things that most 14 year olds deal with and are around on a daily basis. It is a good opportunity to open up a dialogue about things she sees at school or may even be dealing with herself.
My teen's take? She was sort of annoyed with the Hannah Baker character and thought she placed some blame where it shouldn't have been, but it did open up a discussion about how what seems no big deal to one person can be a very big deal for another. About how you just never know what's going through someone's head.
Something does happen towards the end that pushes her over the edge.
Yeah it became more clear in the following episodes.
I'm still angry with how the Hannah character put so much of it on poor Clay. That boy didn't deserve to have that kind of guilt thrown on him.
This isn't really a spoiler just some analysis and I am not sure how people feel about talking about it.
Just finished and the big thing that came through to me is secrets. It seems that every kid has a secret and feels they would to embarrassed to let the secret out which clearly makes things worse.
From the very beginning where Clay is given the tapes. Tony would say nothing just listen. Clay would say nothing when asked. To all the incidents and stories. If somebody would have let it out the whole house of cards would have crashed down.
Tony seems to be the oddball in the picture. It seems strange that he got picked to deliver things since he really wasn't in the circle. I also find it hard to believe the other loons would have listened to the tapes and freely give them up "given the secrets" and not destroy them.
He handled the role amazingly well. Sure, someone else could have too, but I wasn't bothered at all by his age.
Agreed on the passing of the tapes by each kid. They were so hell bent for Clay not to pass them along but the solution would have been not to pass it along when they had it. Though Tony did have a copy of them so I wonder if they just didn't explain it enough but that Tony has extra copies or something and ensured the tapes moved along the chain
