September 2020 – In early June, in the midst of a worldwide pandemic and national strife, Net-flix released the fourth and final season of its teen-targeted original series 13 Reasons Why. (See AFA Journal, 5/18.)
Continuing its glorification of controversial content and culturally sensitive topics, the fourth season focuses on severe mental illness while pushing an in-your-face LGBTQ agenda. Gratuitous language blankets the season’s 10 episodes as homosexuality is constantly celebrated and praised. The season has an awkward horror-movie feel to it as teenagers wrestle with deep, serious problems while never being offered real life-changing help.
“Although the series should have never been created and has done far more harm than good, I am glad to see that it’s finally been put to rest with this fourth and final season,” said Rebecca Davis, AFA spokesperson and resident reviewer of 13 Reasons Why.
“But the devastating effects that result from watching this series are far from over since all four seasons are now streaming on Netflix.”
