Netflix never fails to deliver some pretty amazing content, especially when it comes to their original series. However, when it comes to popularity or sheer controversy, few shows can top its runaway hit series, 13 Reasons Why! Unless you have been under a rock the series centers on a misunderstood, misjudged, and complicated teenage girl named Hannah Baker who commits suicide; and leaves behind thirteen tapes, for thirteen different people, explaining why she did it.

The first season dealt with the revelation of why she committed suicide and those who contributed to it, the second season, however gets LEGAL and deeply personal. Herein lies more controversy as we delve more into what exactly each person did to hurt Hannah, the affect the suicide has had on her family and “friends,” and just how warped the American legal system can be when it comes to dealing with sexual assault.

What We Liked

13 reasons why season 2

-This series gets a number of things right. Especially in its portrayal of misogyny, white privilege, mob mentality, and social issues plaguing teens.

-We loved seeing a posthumous Hannah haunting Clay, forcing him to not only “avenge” her suicide, but making him the glue that brought most of the other tape recipients together. Clay became a bona fide hero, however, we wonder to what cost?

-Jessica came into her own. It took a little while for her to go from victim to victor, but she got there. Although she did not win her case against Bryce, at the very least she is now ready to move on with her life and heal.

-Hannah’s mother is a fighter, and no matter what she learned about her daughter she held steadfast in her belief that the school failed her as it is failing other children like Tyler Down.

-We knew Tyler was going to finally snap based on the bullying and social isolation he’s endured since the first season, but we had no idea he himself might become a new set of “13 Reasons Why” I decided to become an active shooter at my school. His story line will definitely be the one to watch in the next season.

-Tony and his boyfriend are really cute together. Tony seems to be trying to get his anger under control and having a boxer boyfriend to keep him on the straight and narrow path works in his favor. That bloody kiss though…

What We Loved

-Hannah finally transitioning. That scene with her walking into the light told us her soul was finally set free and her work there was done. Because of her pain and demise, the corruption of a school has been exposed and scrutinized.

-The tape recipients finally began to move on with their lives. We loved the camaraderie between all of them and how they were there for Clay when he began to mourn Hannah at the dance. It really shows that in the darkest of times a little love can go a long way.

What We Hated

13 reasons why review season 2

-Bryce got off completely with a mere slap on the wrist. At the very least we hoped he would not be breathing at the end of this second season.

-Watching Tyler be attacked and sodomized had us spinning and mortified. You hear about stories like this in the news, but to actually see it–and so graphically–is a memory we would rather try to forget. Still, we understand how important a moment this was to transitioning Tyler’s character to the active shooter he nearly became.

-Hannah’s parents split up. Her father left her mother for the woman he was having an affair with during their daughter’s trial? She really got the short end of the stick in so many ways.

-Jessica and Justin hooking up is something we definitely could have done without. We know he redeemed himself when he testified on her behalf against Bryce, but he was still an accessory to her rape. How she can move past that to forgive him, let alone hook up with him in a locker room is beyond us. Jessica we love you, but you have got to make better choices when it comes to these guys.

We definitely encourage you to see 13 Reasons Why for yourselves. It is definitely a timely series and the next season will tackle the issue of active shooting. This is a topic that needs to be explored now more than ever as it seems to be appearing more and more frequently. What do you guys think of the series? Sound off in the comments section below!

We love a good viral video show! Usually “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “Jackass,” or “Ridiculousness” come into mind when we think of them. Thus, we hope this is the beginning of a new gig for Nick and new show for Fox. It will definitely bring some diversity to the content of the network. As you may already know Fox is largely dramas, a few comedies, animated series, and reality shows.

The CW’s line up of DC Comics superhero based series (dubbed “The Arrowverse”) continues to expand as “Stargirl” now joins “Black Lightning,” “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Batwoman,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” and a soon to be filmed series, “Green And The Canaries,” as well as a Superman and Lois Lane centered series.

Stargirl is Courtney Whitmore, a teenage girl armed with “The Cosmic Staff” a weapon that allows her to manipulate and generate various forms of energy and fly. Aided by her stepfather, S.T.R.I.P.E., a former sidekick to the original Starman, she takes on crime and intergalactic threats.

Brec Bessinger as “Stargirl”

Stargirl follows high school sophomore Courtney Whitmore as she inspires an unlikely group of young heroes to stop the villains of the past. This new drama reimagines Stargirl and the very first superhero team, the Justice Society of America, in an unpredictable series. The project focuses on the character that started executive producer Geoff Johns’ career as a comic book writer when he created her in 1999, lovingly inspired by his late sister, who was killed in a 1996 plane explosion.

“There is no other character in comic books more special to me than Stargirl, and after searching far and wide I can say there is no other actor on the planet that embodies her more than Brec Bassinger,” said Johns back when the series was announced. “Brec’s warmth, strength, humor and positive energy are core to who Courtney Whitmore is. I’m so grateful she’s signed on for the role.”

We are here for this Stargirl series. She is one DC Comics more obscure heroines, but is nonetheless a powerhouse. She definitely fits in with The CW’s demography and we can see this being a true hit. What do you guys think of this new superhero series? Will you be watching?
