What’s On Tonight: ’13 Reasons Why’ Lands On Netflix And Lightning Strikes On ‘Review’

13 Reasons Why (Netflix) – The teen suicide drama directed a produced by Tom McCarthy (among others) and brought to us by Selena Gomez spans 13 episodes and delves deep into the cold, ruthless hierarchy that is high school.
