    Just watched this 13 part series. Was expecting a run of the mill teen drama, but man this show is surprisingly good. Well made, strong cast. It would be a crime if Kate Walsh is not nominated for an Emmy for her performance here.

    i thought it was really solid, except for Tony magically being anywhere and everywhere as plot needed (and that really dumb moment with the fight)... and the fact that everyone in the show kept asking clay if he had listened to his tape yet... as if his was going to be the WORST... and it just clearly wasn't anything of the kind... and was pretty predictable as to why he was on a tape.

    oh... and the thing at the end that I'm assuming sets up a S2... meh.

    man, that makes it sound like i didn't like it at all... which I did!

    That's actually a pretty short gripe list for 13 hours of television. :)

    I wasnt feeling it. Very overdramatic "Highschool is serious business" nonsense. Emotional HS girl kills herself because people spread rumors.

    Reminded me of "Cyberbully", lifetime tv movie. Exact.Same.Premise. Emotional HS girl (trys to)kill herself because people spread rumors. But she fails because of child safety caps, lmao

    I did. Thats exactly what happens. The rape was just a predictable +1 to the melodrama. Of course she was raped. Walk down the street and slip on a banana peel and you get raped in 2017. what is a teen drama without rape? Boring.

    If it's half as funny as this clip, I'm in!

    The YouTube comments have me in tears.

    Its good so far, I'm on 10, but how can a girl have so many issues in her life? Its getting a little ridiculous that everyone she knows has done something to her or someone else.
