Critic Reviews for Transparent Season 2

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (25)

Nothing is more real than the Pfeffermans' faith that they are the center of the universe... It doesn't make them good people, but it does make them great television.

Between all the yelling and drama and narcissism, this is a family where the important revelations can almost slip by unnoticed. Until, of course, they can't.

Season 2 is bolder, stronger, and more audacious because now, actions have consequences.

Transparent's second season shocked me. It feels like a deep questioning of some of the central tenets of progressive society... This allows Transparent to be more bracing, more challenging, and more compelling than most any other show on TV.

Tambor and Hoffmann are still standouts, but their show is moving in a bleaker direction this season.

While much of the credit goes to Soloway and her team of extraordinary writers... and guest director Marielle Heller ("The Diary of a Teenage Girl"), the actors each deserve the bevy of attention already heaped upon them.

The only thing I didn't like about this episode was that I couldn't immediately watch the next five back-to-back.

Now more than ever, Transparent is a full-blown ensemble piece that examines the complicated, painful, confusing and messy elements of a family in search of itself.

The second season is even better: more expansive, textured, and daring; more emotional and political.

Transparent dares to have a deep, raw and blunt conversation about the freedom to be who you really are, and succeeds beautifully.
