8 'Reasons Why' There Should Totally Be A Season 2

8 'Reasons Why' There Should Totally Be A Season 2

Hannah Baker might have finished telling her story but her story is not over.

Netflix has officially announced that there will be a second season of "13 Reasons Why" and everyone is having mixed emotions about the news.

Half the fans don't want another season and the other half do want another season. Recently an article came out about how there shouldn't be a sequel, and while it had some valid points, it also had some points I didn't agree with.

So I'm going to use the reasons she had that I didn't agree with on why season two is a good idea:

1. There isn't a second book

No there isn't a second book but that doesn't mean that there can't be a second season. I understand what people mean when they say there isn't a second book so there shouldn't be a second season, Jay Asher worked hard writing this book and Netflix shouldn't take that hard work away from him and make it into their own work. But the show brought us things that the book didn't, it brought us a story about every character involved and their stories aren't over. Season one also left a lot of unanswered questions and left room for Hannah's death to still impact a few more people.

2. Hannah Baker's story is over

Her story is not over! She might be dead but that doesn't mean her story is over. Yes, she recorded 13 tapes to tell the people that made her feel like she wasn't wanted why she ended her life. But her parents want justice for why she was led to end her life and season two will bring that. The impact she has on people because of her suicide is part of her story. With that being said the outcome of the lawsuit is part of her story, if that lawsuit changes the way the school acts towards bullying then it's because of her.

3. There is no reason to continue their story

I don't know why people seem to think that everything was about Hannah Baker. In the book yes every detail was towards Hannah Baker's life specifically why it ended but in the show it wasn't, they made a story for EVERY character. Which means that there are many of reasons to continue the story, there is a question about every character that is unanswered.

4. Hannah Baker won't be the main character anymore

Yes, Hannah Baker won't be the main character anymore but she wasn't the only main character and she's not going to be forgotten. We might not physically see her but she's still going to be part of the show.

5. Everyone is going to know the truth behind her suicide

They need too...

6. The format of the show will be different

The show didn't revolve around the tapes but the story that the tapes were telling and some of those stories still need to continue. The format of the show will still consist of those stories and the lawsuit for Hannah's suicide.

7. The name of the show won't make sense

A lot of names for tv shows don't make sense, for example, MTV's tv show "Faking It" was about two best friends faking being a lesbian couple, but they only faked being a lesbian for about five episodes and that show had three seasons. The name of a tv show shouldn't choose whether it gets another season or not.

8. There making a second season for the wrong reason

The first season started a conversation that needed to be had around the whole world and the second season will do the same. No one knows if the producers are making another season because of the ratings of the show or because they want to spark another conversation. But I highly doubt it's because they want more streams.

I personally can’t wait til the second season comes out, the first opened my eyes to things that I didn’t really put much effort into thinking about. I think the second season will bring more awareness to suicide and sexual assault. The first season was hard to watch because of the graphic scenes but that’s reality, that’s what happens and season two should bring us the same; the reality of what actually happens.

I'm Back With a "Few" Ideas

I've been away from The Odyssey for a full year. 

        I’ve been away from writing for The Odyssey for a full year now, and some interesting things happen when you tell yourself that you’re going to get back in the game. 

       At the top of the “interesting things that happen when you decide to take a time out from writing list” is an unbreakable, unpleasant, and unmerciful case of writer’s block. 

       You have so much to say, yet can’t force a single word into the keys. You go completely blank and day after day decide that tonight’s work will be tomorrow’s problem. 

       The problem with pushing things back a day, however, is that a the new day will never be guaranteed. Today’s tasks turned tomorrow’s problems might never be complete and the words in my head that I can’t force out might just live and die as nothing more than ideas. 

       I have nothing against ideas; but there has yet to be a single “good” idea that someone other than the creator didn’t know about. For an idea or a group of words to be worth anything, they have to be shared with others. 

       The time we’ve already been given may be the only time we ever receive. 

       I had no idea where to start for this first piece back so I saw it fitting to delve into something short and sweet and hopefully inspire others to start speaking and writing what’s on their minds as I attempt to get back into the game. 

       We all have something to say. Each of us has a voice and it’s now easier than ever to start sharing your ideas with the rest of the world. 

       Make sharing your voice a priority today. If you have something to say, say it. If you have something to share, share it. If you have something to teach, teach it. 

       Nobody cares about thoughts or ideas until they’re able to hear them. 

       F%$@ tomorrow, make it happen today. 

       I’m looking forward to being back on the Odyssey and sharing my voice on my own personal page. I have a ton of things to say and ideas to share and can't wait to share this journey with the people on this platform.

        If there’s anything you'd want to read about from me in the future, or have any feedback on anything I post, go ahead and let me know via email or social media. 

        I’m looking forward more than anything to hearing from the readers of this content and seeing how my ideas were shared. 

       You’ll be hearing more from me soon. In the meantime, go ahead and follow my Odyssey page and find me on social media!

       Until next time,

STORM3’s “Lost Another Chance” Boasts A Power-Pop and EDM Foundation Perfect For The Radio Airwaves and Dance Floors

Dutch Trio release debut U.S. single full of high NRG electropop

Emerging Dutch boy band STORM3 have an infectious synthpop number out now on their hands by way of their electropop gem and first U.S. single “Lost Another Chance.” Influenced by today’s electronic dance music sound, the single finds the lads and their harmonious vocals amongst some up-for-it high energy and dance floor drama. It’s the kind of stuff too that’s radio ready considering the continued influx of EDM on the FM airwaves.

STORM3 consists of members Devon Donovan, Koen van der Heide and Patrick la Lau who started the group back in 2015. Although originally written as a ballad, “Lost Another Chance” comes on strong and fierce in its current robust EDM pop incarnation courtesy of some pumping production work from Alpha-X and STORMS’s own van der Heide. The song’s theme is indeed a very universal one and all-around relatable topic. “Lost Another Chance” describes that feeling of insecurity and doubt when you start to like someone but do not know how to act or what to say or do. Even though you may have ‘lost another chance’ as their song proclaims, you can just as well become stronger from those experiences and emotions.

The unified vocal harmonies of Donovan, van der Heid and la Lau indeed elevate the three of them into a solid musical unit as STORM3 on their vibrant “Lost Another Chance” single. Courting catchy synth sounds and gorgeous singing, “Lost Another Chance” is a perfect shiny soundtrack to winter 2018 as we get ready to usher in springtime.
