In Episode 1 (and Tape 1, Side A) Hannah says that there are 13 sides to every story, and that this is the reason for making 13 tapes. However, at the time she recorded the first tape, she had only planned on making 12, which she reveals in Episode 12. She didn't intend to record a conversation with Mr. Porter until days later.

So important...
31 March 2017 | by markshort-78073See all my reviews

Profound, moving, disturbing and massively important. Brilliant and devastating in equal measures. Caution, this is most definitely tough to watch, but do it. A fantastically well written and acted series. "13 Reasons Why" is a difficult, but an important...no...a necessary watch. A refreshing and unflinching look at taboo subjects that are rarely touched upon in mainstream media. Well done to all involved for handling the subjects so well.
