13 Reasons Why

Tape 6, Side B - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Hannah makes the list with names involving her past events, they differ substantially between the close-up when they're written and the final wide angle once the paper is finished. Check Alexander: first an irregular oval with a straight side, then a perfect oval.

The Second Polaroid - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: Mr. Porter and Principal Bolan are having a conversation outside the building when two kids walk by as the shot is focused on Mr. Porter. When the shot changes to Bolan, the same two kids are walking by again.

Graduation - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: In the scene before the last when Clay is getting out from his house with 2 bags and goes to put them in Tony's car, he has a bag on his back but when he closes the trunk the bag disappears. (00:33:00 - 00:34:00)

Season 1 generally

Continuity mistake: During the first tape Hannah says that there are 13 tapes as there are 13 sides to every story, however we later find out that she only planned and recorded 12 tapes that night, and the 13th (Mr Porter's) was unplanned and recorded later on, so she would not have included it with the others when she mentioned how many tapes she was going to make in the beginning.

Tape 7, Side A - S1-E13

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, the scenery outside Tony's window changes. We first see a body of water and grass, which then changes to a row of houses, grass, and a smaller body of water in the big overhead shot.


Bye - S2-E13

Other mistake: In the hall during the Spring Fling Dance, Bryce reminds Justin of the night before Freshman Year when they stayed up all night talking about being kings of the school. This doesn't make sense considering Justin is then a Junior while Bryce is a Senior. Bryce does however end up in the same year as Justin when he transfer to Hillcrest for Spring Semester and goes in as a Junior. (00:52:48)
