R23 This show has a MASSIVE teenage fan base. It’s really reprehensible for them to do a whole storyline about a gay guy obsessed with avenging the death of a closeted guy who not only beat the shit out of him, but also violently raped another male student.

R24 But that reflects the situation of being gay in a homophobic world. Gays end up hankering for the "straight-acting" jocks who abuse gays because of their own internalized hate. The whole 13RW theme is about how the fucked up state of society affects/kills teenagers not sweet highschool romance.

You think the villains in 13RW are nuanced? My biggest problem with with this show is it sets up people as absolutely evil and immoral then shoves some half assed rehabilitation in to "save" them at the end. Bryce spends 2 whole seasons as the spawn of Satan with an actual rape shack, then once he's good as dead they try to make him seem less bad. If they didn't want to make 2 dimensional villains they should probably have tried to give them an actual personality beyond "gee I sure do love rape" before deciding to kill them off.

I think the kid who plays Tyler - Devin Druid - is the strongest in the cast, but he also has the most dramatically challenging storyline. He’s also the youngest of all the actors so it’s doubly impressive. He seems to be booking a lot of indie films so I hope he blows up.

Katherine Langton was the best of this cast. I stopped watching midway in season 3. Ani just didn't make sense to me and didn't feel organic to the story line. Season 3 moved so slow, I stopped before the payoff, which sounds pretty good. Was Bryce blackmailing Monty about the gay secret and then Monty killed him allegedly?

Monty didn’t kill him. The actual murderers framed him because they knew he was a violent rapist.

I actually think Miles is a pretty great actor, but he certainly has a very specific energy as a person that does carry into all of his work. He doesn’t have terrific range in what he can play, but what he does is generally done well (but much more grounded than most).

I also think he’s done a disservice by being put into all these straight roles. He’s one of those who pings from space, so every time his supposed straightness is referenced it’s very jarring (which makes him look bad in turn). They really need to just bite the bullet and let his character be lgbtq. He’d have been a much better choice for a gay storyline than Monty was.

RuPaul said much the same thing on his podcast. He told Miles to look at Anthony Perkins' ouevre.

I thought, despite the small part, he had a lot of screen presence in Love, Simon. Although we're supposed to wonder if his character is gay (and he was bi in the book), so it works.

Miles was also good on Parenthood, he is performance was always very soulful and he’s a very natural crier (he cried a lot). I remember thinking he was a very dreamy teen.

Russell Tovey loves to cry a lot as well. Maybe it's a gay boy thing.

by Anonymousreply 7805/23/2020

R76 I actually think Love, Simon is a great example, because he’s not in it much but does have a ton of presence (and a bunch of people wanted him as Blue for good reason). I think a lot of why he’s so effective in that part is that we’re led to believe he may be gay and Miles knew the character was bi (and played him like he was even if they cut anything that would have made that clear).

by Anonymousreply 7905/23/2020

R77 Yeah, his storyline with the deadbeat dad was one of the most effective parts of the Parenthood pilot, and he carried his character's heartbreak around the abortion storyline really well. He otherwise always felt like one of the more real characters on that show to me, just because he's got this anxious but low-key energy I feel like I see all the time in the real world but not a lot on tv

by Anonymousreply 8005/23/2020

Uh oh, I riled all the Miles fangurls.

Sorry, I've been watching him act for three seasons of this show and I don't think he is good at it. Having "presence" for a minute cameo is not a doing dramatic character arc like he has been called upon to do in this show.

by Anonymousreply 8105/23/2020

R67 for what it’s worth, he also killed Bryce because Bryce was a total dumbass douchebag who manipulated Alex into helping him up so he wouldn’t freeze to death, only to immediately start threatening both Jess and Zach.

Alex also has a TBI, a history of uncontrollable outbursts of rage because of that TBI, and was using steroids at the time (which I think make both those things worse). And Bryce knew all of that. It’s kind of hilarious really.

[quote] "We've heard from many young people that 13 Reasons Why encouraged them to start conversations about difficult issues like depression and suicide and get help — often for the first time," Netflix said in a statement Tuesday. "As we prepare to launch season three later this summer, we've been mindful about the ongoing debate around the show. So on the advice of medical experts, including Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer at the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, we've decided with creator Brian Yorkey and the producers to edit the scene in which Hannah takes her own life from season one."

r130 The thing is it sounds like they edited the actual suicide scene to stop other teenagers from doing it. Which is ridiculous when the goriness would do the opposite. But they didn't change any of the rest of the season which pretty much promotes the message that if you kill yourself your entire schools lives will revolve around you, also leave some tapes describing how everyone failed you for that whole revenge from beyond the grave factor.

R132 I binged all 3 seasons over the weekend to refresh my memory before season 4 drops. They didn't edit anything out of that scene, including showing the bloody end of the mop handle.

Even though season 3 was the most recent, it was the one I remembered least about. It was so laughably bad. The police investigation was so half-assed (a text message & fingerprint on a car door = murderer) and the amount of people they questioned without a parent or attorney present.

Then there is the school. With the amount of shit that went down in such a short period of time, more people beyond a guidance counselor would have lost their jobs, starting with the principal and coach.

I haven't watched the trailer for S4 yet, but if what someone said above is true (Winston's revenge), it sounds painful already.

Also, can we talk about Alex's dad's shoe polish hair dye? Made all the worse by the scraggly gray sideburns sticking out.

Season 3 of this show will go down in history as one of the most terrible seasons of a TV show ever. It went so completely off the rails that it’s hard to believe it’s still the same show as the first two seasons.

R267 must not have watched the show. Justin goes to a school in an upper middle class to rich area By using someone else’s address to be in that district. He is from a poor home and his mom is a junkie who chooses her junkie BF over her son.

He becomes addicted to heroine himself and gets fucked by strange men he doesn’t know in exchange for drugs or drug money. He may have contacted AIDS through the sex or through sharing needles. Many druggies get HIV/AIDS.

Also, in this season when he is stripped down to his underwear you see he has leisure’s all over his body. That is episode 7. So that means he has had it for a while without knowing and it’s probably attacking his system big time.

SPOILERS AHEAD

I finally finished the season. It was the best yet imo, maybe except season 1. I'd rank the seasons (from best to worst): 1, 4, 3, 2.

I have some thoughts on the season. First off, I'm glad they made Alex gay. It was a long time coming. They hinted at it a lot last season. I would have been pissed if they didn't make him gay. I'm so sick of gaybaiting. That brings me to Alex and Zach. I love their friendship and I'm so glad the writers didn't give into fan hype and paired them up. Zach has always been straight. I'm glad he's so cool about Alex being gay. I'm sure he wasn't shocked, lol. It's so obvious the writers are straight though as they clearly paired two bottoms at first, with Alex and Winston. At least it's slightly more believable Charlie is a top, though only slightly (lol). Charlie kinda looks like a bottom too. Overall I think they did Alex's gay storyline really well. What pissed me off however is that once again the gay guy doesn't get to have sex. Alex had sex with a fucking hooker last year, yet this year the writers won't even let him have sex with his own boyfriend? They baited us when Charlie said he'd love to do more than just sleep (as in actually sleep) with Alex. I was annoyed noting came off it. 100 % they would have showed them have sex. Same shit happened in Sex Therapy. Granted, the gay guy (Anwar) was shown having sex with his boyfriend, yet it lasted for a second. A literal second. It was laughable. The lesbians got several minutes of rubbing their clits together (sorry for being graphic), I know it's gross. It's true though.

I was shocked they killed Justin off. I thought for sure they'd make him live because this show has had way too many deaths, I guess I was wrong. In a way I'm glad about it though, because it was realistic. It made sense. Justin has lived a shitty life. It had to ruin him one day. What I didn't like with his storyline though, is that it felt... idk... kinda sudden? But at the same time they spent a whole episode on him. We had to watch him die. I'd rather see more of the storylines of the others instead tbh, like yeah, more of Alex and Charlie, though I did think their coming out scenes were well done.

Then there's Clay. The show mishandled his storyline so much. I was so mad at how the show dealt with his mental health issues, like he was crazy. Dealing with mental health issues does not mean you're crazy. Second, all the scenes of Clay forgetting stuff and picturing people... it was so exaggerated. At first I thought he was schizophrenic. No way was he just dealing with anxiety and depression. What a load of bullshit. Second, why was he never medicated? I know he was in therapy, but that is only part of what he needs. I don't think the show did a great job with mental health awareness. I'm on anti-depressants. I'm not ashamed because it's nothing to be ashamed of. I was so annoyed Clay was never medicated when he clearly needed it.

Nah dude, keeping quiet was not realistic.

R285 - the whole season was full of lazy, contrived writing.

by Anonymousreply 28806/06/2020

SPOILER

The coming out scenes were good, especially Charlie's. His dad was so loving and supportive, but at the same time not surprised. And I'm glad he came out as bi. Not enough bi representation on this show, let alone in the media in general. Tons of bi women, yet very few bi guys. Despite the fact that bi guys are real. Fucking hell, gen z is much more comfortable with being bi. More bi guys are coming out than ever before. I'm also glad it changed nothing with how Charlie was perceived by the football jocks. Also, it was cute how Alex's brother was like "you're dating the quarterback?" FUCK YEAH! lol. I would have liked a proper coming out scene from Alex too, though Alex saying Charlie was his boyfriend was better than nothing, I guess.

R288 I did like the gay storyline, although far from perfect it was well done. I loved the coming out scenes and the prom king and king thing. I'm sad that once again we didn't get a gay sex scene, but whatever, you can't have everything I guess. I'm just happy they finally made Alex gay. He was never believable as straight. Miles Heizer simply can't play straight, never could. The thing about Justin felt contrived. Too many deaths on this show already. Also, spending an episode watching him die? No thanks. Don't even get me start on the ridiculous and unbelievable outcome from Winston. He just walked away without implicating them? He's a fucking psychopath. Not realistic. And don't even get me started on Zach's sheriff father talking with the other sheriff (sorry, don't know his name) about family. The other sheriff clearly knew who killed Bryce, yet he didn't say anything?! WTF? Again, that made no sense.

[Quote]Yes. The same guy who beat the shit out of him. This show is majorly fucked up and its gay storylines are borderline homophobic.

All shows do this though, it's such a cliche at this point. Sex Therapy did the same thing, having the gay boy fall in love with the guy who bullied him and beat him.

Another thing that didn't make sense was Tony's boxing career. The guy is barely 5 feet tall. It's ridiculous how the show always tried to have him be this tough street kid when he is so short and tiny. The actor was clearly miscast. Wonder if he was cast because the competition was slim, did nobody else want to play gay?

by Anonymousreply 29606/06/2020

I've gotten through half of the 4th shitshow. They jumped the shark in a dumpster fire with this season. Clays story is a mess, there's no way he wouldn't have been medicated. They managed to make Jessica even more obnoxious and self righteous.

Alex should have been played as ambiguous from the beginning. Glad they finally went there but he spent way too much time with his character trying to have sex with first Jessica then a hooker.

And WHAT THE FUCK is up with Tonys hair? Ash blond highlights?!?!

I'm not finished with the season yet, Tyler has an intriguing storyline this season, and I know Justins fate now, although he played the broken and barely held together, traumatized and self medicating role so well, it's not a great shock given the losses he's sustained.

I'm worried that they're setting things up to follow a group of these characters to college. Haven't seen this whole season so hopefully they really end things before the show turns into a thorough joke.

Selena Gomez is the executive producer of this show. Of course they will do a spin-off. She needs to make herself more millions off this.

Clay would be medicated for sure. He’s losing it and everyone is ignoring him. Granted, our mental healthcare system sucks.

Alex isn’t a cool character and is suddenly gay. Who cares? R292 this is the shows final season with 3 less episodes as previous seasons. They were closing out the characters stories, not worries about random sex scenes. No one had a sex scene minus Clay losing his V card and that was 2 seconds. That’s it. Quit crying.

R301 that means we need to focus on a random gay “love” story? Please. Alex being gay is only believable because they cast a gay boy in the role who acts, sounds and moves gay. Miles was miscast.

There was nothing groundbreaking or even charming about his forced storyline this season.

by Anonymousreply 30306/06/2020

Did anyone notice that Alex does not actually come out as gay or bi, he just tells his parents he has a boyfriend and that’s that?

I’m wondering if Miles has some say in that since he himself has never come out as gay. He might be one of those types that if you ask him would just say he doesn’t believe in labels.

I believe that Miles has wanted to play gay and do gay projects for a very long time, he promoted Love Simon very passionately and spoke at length about how excited he was to be cast, even though they made his character straight in that.

To the morons complaining Alex didn’t “come out”, his telling them this is my boyfriend was his coming out. Afterwards he stands in shock by their nonchalant reaction, and his mom asks if he is ok and he says “I thought this would be a bigger deal”, meaning that was his coming out.

Geez.

by Anonymousreply 32606/06/2020

Also, to the morons who are crying about no gay sex, Alex is new to dating a dude. He probably is scared of his first time with a man.

What does everyone think of the spin-off rumors? Dylan Minnette has said it’s been in discussion but that he doesn’t know if he’ll be involved (he probably wants out).

They set up Alex and Jessica going to the same college. Could they pull something off where Jess is a campus activist and Alex is her pansexual bestie exploring his sexuality and place in the “queer community”? Gen Z would eat it up.

How clueless can these people be? They should have immediately admitted him to the hospital for intensive treatment, not sent him off to school and the prom.

Winston knows Monty for five minutes, and in Season 4, he suddenly becomes a crusader for him and Bryce. WTF? Why? He didn't even know Bryce. His character made NO SENSE and was just added to introduce yet another attractive gay character to the show.

Ani is suddenly pining for Jessica? What? Since when? Did the writers realize that they had made more than half the males on the show gay, and forgot to include some lesbians?

Was the prom a fantasy sequence? Charlie and Alex get prom queen and king after being a couple for ten minutes, and the football team cheers them on, as if they haven't been a bunch of alpha male jock assholes for the last four seasons? And let's not forget that the sea literally parted for Justin when he shows up, so he can dance with Jessica. Sure. Why not?

The police literally beat up students in the streets and wouldn't let them back into their school, and we get NO REACTION from the parents? Where are the class action lawsuits? Where is the outrage? These are the worst parents in the history of television.
