There are more than a few reasons why you should watch the newly released Netflix show 13 Reasons Why, based on the novel by Jay Asher. I probably won't be able to list 13 — that's the show's job — but I can name at least three. Here goes nothing.
2. The score is chock-full of indie tunes that you'll want to add to your iTunes (or Spotify) libraries.
3. Selena Gomez wants you to watch it.
The pop star, 24, who is an executive producer for the series, shared on Instagram today her thoughts on the show's premiere.
The show revolves around around the death of high school sophomore Hannah Baker (Katherine Langford), who leaves behind a series of tapes explaining her death — she provides the "13 reasons why" she died by suicide. The Netflix series straddles two timelines, one where Hannah Baker is very much alive, and one where her classmates and friends are grappling with her passing. Kate Walsh, who produced the show alongside Gomez, stars as Hannah's mother.
