Goofs

When Justin smokes heroin he mostly smokes it by straight inhaling the smoke coming off of the foil by putting his mouth/face to/into the smoke. But in reality to smoke heroin you have to use a tooter. Which is usually a hollowed out plastic pen tube. There is one part where he has/ uses a tooter to smoke it. But in the rest of the show he smokes it incorrectly without any tooter to actually catch the smoke. With most of the smoke just going up into the air. In reality if you tried to smoke heroin like he does without a tooter of some kind you would miss all the smoke, wasting it and not really getting high from it. See more »

Ani...reasons why???
28 August 2019 | by ZomaburSee all my reviews

Ani makes me feel like we accidentally turned on audio description & can't turn it off.

The first series was exceptional and I did enjoy season 2 despite the Hannah visions. Season 3 though...... How is this new girl trusted by everyone? How did she become so close to Clay so quickly? Why is Hannah barely mentioned? The tapes were released publicly she could easily have listened to them. She is obviously ridiculously interested in the group so it makes no sense that she wouldn't listen to the tapes!

I do think the whole storyline for series 3 would have been great without the awful commentary from Ani. It's just completely unnecessary! It makes sense that Bryce could be killed but we are so connected to the other characters that they would have been able to explore this story without the need of Ani! Nothing against the actress, she does a good job with what is written. It's the whole part that is just completely unnecessary & highly irritating.

I am English, so it's not the accent that grates on me. It's the personality of the character. It's making it very hard for me to keep watching! I have watched series 1 & 2 a few times each. The music & the intertwining stories were great but I will never be able to watch this series again. I want to press mute whenever she speaks!
