    Transparent - Season 1 ?????
  • Apr 08, 2018
    I was attracted to the premise, but i just didn't find it funny. might try again later
  • Dec 29, 2017
    Puntaje Original: 7.0 Una serie necesaria para los tiempos modernos, con un gran reparto que nos ofrece brillantes actuaciones y una historia divertida e intima.
  • Dec 10, 2016
    Ok, this is the best show I've ever seen if laughs, shocks, and craving a show is what youre looking for. I have no dog in the fight on the issues it covers, I just have to admit youll be on the edge of your seat. Only dry spot was the ...spoiler....rabbi/adoption theme. Bo. ring. part. Otherwise, a real treasure of a show.
  • Sep 14, 2016
    Annoyed by all the characters. The only part of the first 2 seasons I liked was the flashbacks.
  • Jan 30, 2016
    proprio oggi, in concomitanza col family day, ho completato questa prima stagione di transparent; e niente, mi sono reso conto di una cosa: mica l'ho capito io cosa sia 'sta famiglia tradizionale.
  • Jan 27, 2016
    Great show. Excellent acting and superb story.
  • Jan 12, 2016
    So exhilarating to see a story being told that hasn't been told innumerable times before. Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Gaby Hoffmann et al are riveting to watch, and the writing digs right into one's heart. Highly-recommended!
  • Dec 12, 2015
    An unfunny comedy and bland drama.
  • Dec 07, 2015
    Phenomenal. Loved every minute of it, cannot wait for season 2 !
