Don’t be surprised if you see a lot of long posts about mental health on your social media for the next few weeks because Netflix’s controversial series 13 Reasons Why is back with its second season.
Hannah had left 13 tapes and the show had 13 episodes. They told the story they wanted to tell in those 13 episodes, I don’t think it needed another season. They’re probably just milking its success at this point and it’s probably gonna ruin the show, especially given the fact they have exhausted their source material by Jay Asher. Early reviews of the second season aren’t good either.
Instead of watching the second season of 13 Reasons Why, you can watch these relatively under-hyped shows instead.
Silicon Valley is about struggles and joys of trying to build your own company with friends. It’s like TVF Pitchers, but way funnier and more interesting. 10 episodes, 30 min each per season, you can easily binge-watch the series before its season 5 finale. Definitely one of the best shows on TV right now.
IMDB Rating: 8.6

Brooklyn nine-nine follows a group of police officers in NYPD’s 99th Precinct. The show is hugely popular among people for its unoffensive humor. It never relied on stereotypes for its punchlines which is very rare for a comedy series these days.

Mr. Robot is about a young computer programmer with mental health issues who is trying to bring down world’s biggest conglomerate. If you haven’t watched it yet, you’re missing out one of the greatest shows of our generation. But if you somehow stopped watching it in the middle of season 2, I understand, it’s a bit slow and boring but I promise you, season 3 more than makes up for it. Watch it before season 4 comes back in summer.
