I'm literally watching it right now! I started seven hours ago and am on episode 7. I'm up working AND staining some shelves, so it's taken me a bit longer to get through the episodes. I'm going to force myself to get to bed soon, but I have a few more shelves in need of stain before I'm done for the night (morning?). It's SO tempting to just watch the entire season in one go.
I wasn't sure how they were going to continue the story, but it's been really good. They've done an excellent job of showing the butterfly effect on all of the characters. I REALLY hoping karma comes for Bryce before the end of the season!
I finished the finale and the after show. I was emotionally exhausted when it was done. I ugly cried through practically the entire finale. It was such an emotional episode in many different ways. I don't want to talk too much about it until some of the rest of you finish the season. Make sure to have the Kleenex handy!

Just finished the finale, but haven't seen the aftershow. Some scenes were VERY hard to watch in the last episode. The season ended with a cliffhanger, which might mean there is a season 3? But the Hannah story is completely wrapped up.
Finished it today. I loved the book so much and really liked the first season, this season didn't feel genuine to me. Not disingenuous in the idea that these things aren't happening every day, but more so in the way that the writers took such liberties with the characters. I had a hard time watching Zach become a hero of sorts, as I had a hard time with the writers filling so much of Hannah's back story.
I finished Episode 9 last night. Hoping to get a couple more in today. (I can't watch in front of my 5 year old )
I'm enjoying all the back story on Hannah. Of course there is two sides to the story! There always is. There is something about this show that makes me want to keep watching it even when I've finished the last episode. I just want to know MORE about them. So more of her story...Zach's story...Jessica's story...her parents...I'm enjoying it all. I feel so terrible for Alex. It's breaking my heart watching him struggle so.

I finished it last night. And I'm not happy with how it ended. And I hate how long we have to wait for another season. I get so wrapped up in it and emotionally invested in the characters ...then I don't watch it for another year. Urgh. I recognize so much of the scenery too....it's filmed just two hours south of me in Northern California.
That episode was really hard to watch. I cried for most of it too. And looked away for one scene in particular...you know the one I'm sad to say goodbye to Hannah as I become really attached to her and her character. I hated that we couldn't just "bring her back to life" somehow. Her and Clay would be together and all would be well This show is so well done. I'm surprised at the small following it has here at Fort... Are we it? Can we talk spoilers now?

I am surprised at familiar faces among the adults on the show. The attorney for Hannah's mother was on My So Called Life, Steven Weber from Wings is the Principal, Alex's father is Lucifer on Supernatural, Brenda Strong who plays Bryce's mother was on Desparate Housewives, and Bryce's father was The Medium;s husband. I am at the second last episode right now and I found the whole season pretty good so far.
I'd love to talk spoilers if everyone has had a chance to watch it. A year is a long time for a show to come back. I had to re-watch season 1 before season 2. I LOVED season 1 and enjoyed season 2. Just as Hannah's death scene made me belt out a cry I didn't know I had for a tv show as did Tyler's scene. I think they did stretch some stuff just to be able to keep Hannah around another season but it didn't take anything away from how darn good the show is! It sucks you in.
I watched season 1 about a year ago, I think, & I just didn’t have it in me to watch season 2. The last episode of season was super disturbing on several levels for me personally. I don’t like to share too much of my personal life online, especially in a public forum, but let’s just say I have first hand experience with what Hannah endured that last episode, by the hands of a classmate as well, & as well as a suicide attempt years later ( and many years ago) I wish we had a secret forum on here for established, known, trusted members where we could discuss personal things that we need to get off our chest but don’t want it to be publicly accessible. I’ve been on a few message boards in the past that had this & it was really nice to be able to vent or talk about things we needed advice about but didn’t want to share our problems with people we know IRL.
A friend of mine kept wanting me to continue watching this show, so I finally finished it. I liked the second season better. A lot going on in the season finale with Tyler getting attacked, Chloe being pregnant, Jessica cheating on Alex, etc. Have they said what the main storyline will be in season 3? A combination of things that are going on?
Sorry, but I can't believe THAT scene would lead ANYONE to commit suicide. It was horrifying and brutal. It didn't make suicide look appealing in any way, IMO. I was physically ill watching it (almost threw up, which has never happened as a result of a TV show). I think it's more likely that they caved to pressure from some group claiming the show is to blame for an uptick in suicides. If that scene made suicide seem peaceful or easy, maybe I'd understand, but that's not the case at all.
There hasn't been much news on Season 3 storyline or the summer premiere date.
Unbelievable they deleted that scene. It was raw, real, honest, and thought provoking. I've never felt such emotion from anything I've ever watched before. It's always stuck with me and made me see how emotionally and physically painful suicide is. The complaints were that the show glamorized suicide. That's what the media does every time a celebrity commits suicide. That final scene to me, put the whole show into perspective and showed just how unglamorized suicide is.
Season 4 has been out for a few months now, so I think it's safe to not use spoiler tags!
I just finished the season last night. Part way through, I wasn't sure I'd finish, but it picked up and I really did want to see how they wrapped it all up. I'm glad they had an AIDS storyline, but I saw it coming a mile away - heck, the character had a Kaposi's Sarcoma lesion for half the season. Maybe for Gen Z, that doesn't mean anything. They probably mostly thought it was a bruise. For me, it meant immediate recognition, since I lived through that era. Any time a character had a KS lesion in a TV show or movie, you knew what was coming. Still glad they did the storyline though. It's important and I don't think a lot of young people see AIDS as a deadly disease any more.
All in all, I'm glad I watched. Even in instances where the show didn't 100% hit the mark, I applaud the attempt. They had a nicely diverse cast and really tackled some tough issues.
I bawled like a baby in the final episode, especially the scene in the gym. Didn't expect that one moment (which I definitely won't spoil).
I liked feeling like those kids were (mostly) going to be okay.
I forgot that they filmed the series in NorCal. The exterior shots of the hs were at the school my brother's step kids attended, and when they did the college tour, I immediately knew it was filmed at Sonoma State.

I enjoyed the third season and it was probably my favorite. I know some people didn't like that the Bryce character was so heavily involved, but I definitely found it interesting. What a letdown of a season the fourth one was, in my opinion. It started out bizarre and didn't get better until about the halfway mark. The therapy scenes with Clay went on way too long at times. Then the main reason for a season 4 with the investigation involving Winston and nothing even happened. Besides the emotional storyline with Justin, I could have skipped most of this season.
