A powerful and moving series about a jewish family and their problems with boundries and life's problems, such as the father being a transgender, a daughter dealing with her confusion of sexuality and her own married family, a son who seemingly is looking for love and ways to get it but in all the wrong places. The series is labelled as comedy, but to be honest.. there's not much comedy in it as the series of events that happen throughout the 10 episodes are quite dark. The series as a whole for me was very entertaining though it was a little out of my comfort zone in the genre, I enjoyed every episode.. so much to the fact I watched all 10 episodes in one sitting. Im glad to hear this has been given a second season and will be waiting patiently for 2015 to come around for the next season to be aired.

The jerky start was a little off putting but I liked the over talking at the table, very realistic. Great cast, well written. I like it.

Really well done. Brilliantly written and has a nice balance of humor and drama throughout the first season. The whole TV crew did an amazing job for this production. Can't wait to see season two! Great job.

This show is incredible. It is so intelligently written and acted and produced that I was amazed. Some new, fresh, and different for TV.

At first I wasn't sure about this , but as you watch more episodes ,it almost seems like a reality show! In the sense that we all have secrets , and sometimes it is very hard to share them with someone u love! But if people really love you , you should be able to share them ,especially with your family, who are probably as f**ked up as you anyway ! Great cast making it feel real !

Great cast. An interesting topic or must I say topics. I do hope they can continue to shed light on the journey that each family member good through. A drama that is called life.

Its a beautiful story, complex and difficult to understand. Its a great star to comprehend the life of a transgerder person, still acompanied by the life of its closest relatives, who are themselves very interesting characters.

A very realistic and sweet comedy, Transparent has a very powerful premise, but like some of its characters, it struggles to find its own identity.

Jill Soloway's award-winning series is one of those modern comedies that is as moving as it is funny, with as many weepy spells as laugh-out-loud moments. Some of the third season's stories seem to be a response to the show's critics, including one forcing Maura to address the privilege with which she moves through the world compared to many transgender women. Among the best surprises is actress Trace Lysette, who gets to stretch beyond her previous role as sassmaster and share an important romantic storyline.
