No he isn't. He's actually a very interesting, compelling, layered villain, I'd say.

13 Reasons Why was filmed in my town. The school they attend is the place I took the SAT at.

Hate the fucking show, though.
I wouldn't have expected you to like it at all, but I found it intriguing (especially at the beginning), and it elicited genuine emotion a few times-
Spoiler (hover to show)
. Yeah, there was some retarded stuff that happened just to keep the twists covered up but I still enjoyed it overall.

I'm honestly blown away that anyone on the face of the Earth enjoyed that show. It's basically a highly dramatized Lifetime movie. It glorifies suicide by painting the dead girl as some kind of martyr, and it refuses to put any blame on her shoulders. No, the fault lies solely with the mean meanies at school. If you kill yourself, you'll really be showing them!

Its morals are twisted and unsettling, and because the subject matter is handled so clumsily and humorlessly, it ends up romanticizing suicide, and presenting it as a viable option. It's arguably more backwards than the infamous "Maybe" line in The-Film-That-Must-Not-Be-Named.

Plus, you know, the acting and dialogue are simply the shits.



Still though, the first season of The Walking Dead is one of the worst seasons of TV I've ever seen, if not the worst.

Does he get better in later seasons? Because I'm pretty sure the main reason people find him "interesting" is because he poses a significant threat to the main characters and drives the plot. Character-wise, I don't think he's anything special.

Oh well, at least he's better than Ramsay Bolton...
