Goofs

Jeff's accident is ruled to be the result of drunk driving because of the presence of alcohol in his car. However, in the case of all traffic accidents resulting in death, thorough investigations are always conducted, including toxicology reports. Jeff would undergo a mandatory autopsy to determine the exact cause of death and therefore it would be known that he was not intoxicated at the time of the accident. See more »

Season 1 YES! Season 2 Eh. Season 3 No No No.
30 August 2019 | by camjgarciaSee all my reviews

I came here to write a review specifically about the character Ani, but upon seeing previous reviews, there's nothing left to be said. The show apparently needed a voice in the background because Hannah isn't there to do it, so they introduce us to a RANDOM character and make us believe she was included in this very VERY closed off group because...that's exactly how high school works, right? Love the actress, hated the character. This show turned teen detective very quickly, and the main story line is everyone is lying about something, but what clue can us teen detectives find at the end of each episode to bring truth to a lie. Every time.

I DO have to say something about the cinematography and lighting and editing. That was awesome and these poor teams hardly get credit. The seamless transitions to flashbacks worked like, for the lack of a better term, like magic. You watch a character walk away, but in the same shot as the lighting changes see the character emerge again in the flashback. Standing ovation for that. I loved it.
