That's not the right number of tapes

Postby girlwander » Tue Jun 13, 2017 9:06 am

In 13 Reasons Why each of the 13 titular reasons was on one side of a tape, so the number of tapes was 7. e.g. The last episode of season one was titled "Tape 7, Side A."

This is in reference to DLXX, Question 6.

Also, sorry if this is not proper message board etiquette. It's not something in which I'm well-versed.

Whoa, is this true? If so, that's a very nice catch.

A quick Google search for "13 cassette tapes" in connection with the show reveals that Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, Variety, E!, the Hollywood Reporter, ABC, the LA Times, People, The Telegraph, and the Independent (just for starters) got this wrong. I wonder if Netflix screwed up a press release?

That link has a still shot of the tapes from the show. There are seven. The article itself is actually a little confusing. It starts out saying, "The Tapes were a set of 7 cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker before she commits suicide," but goes on to list each of the sides as tapes 1-13.
