Critic Reviews for Transparent Season 3

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (15)

Screw blasé feelings about continued excellence: Season 3 of Transparent is as excellent as ever, still better than pretty much everything else on TV, and exceptional in ways that are intrinsically tied to it being a third season.

The acting is fantastic. The themes are complicated, often without clear right or wrong sides. But when it comes down to it, what matters is there is such a great deal to say about it.

This season I found Shelly to be more dimensional and emotionally relatable than ever before, not least of all thanks to flashbacks of her as a young woman.

Families, by their very nature, require a lot of patience, and Transparent is no different. Not every moment spent with the Pfeffermans is perfect, but the pay-off is always worth it in the end.

Based on the first three episodes, this looks like another finely crafted season. Also intense, uncompromising and demanding.

Yet perhaps what's most admirable about the third season of Transparent is that it's distinctly different than the first two: More formally daring than Season 1 and less structured than Season 2, Transparent continues to push boundaries in rewarding ways.

Three seasons in and the series still maintains a superior level of quality unmatched by most current TV. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's easy to become effusive over a show that's so ingenuously crafted with performances that started spot-on and have only nudged closer to absolute bulls-eye as they've become more lived in.

... executive producer Jill Soloway pushes her characters the furthest out onto the limbs of the people they've decided to be, and the changes that happen are often thrilling.

The third season feels distinctly tougher than the previous two.
