Transparent

Critics Consensus

Transparent's fourth season forsakes tight narrative discipline for an absorbingly unwieldy continued exploration of the show's uniquely ambitious themes.

Audience Reviews for Transparent: Season 4

  • Dec 29, 2017
    Puntaje Original: 6.5 Como cuando las ideas se te acabas y llenas una temporada de diálogos explicando temas LGTB, dando opiniones políticas y pagarle un viaje a todo el reparto, olvidándose de todo lo que volvía genial a Transparent.
  • Sep 25, 2017
    Four seasons in, Transparent has admittedly developed a bit of familiarity to it (something that seemed unfathomable back in 2014, when the series premiered to so much acclaim directed at how novel it was). Still, what Transparent does well it does outstanding, and it was a smart move on the writers part to set the majority of this season in Israel. There are some inspired character reveals this season, and the gazes into the Pfefferman family history are all alluring, even if the show prefers for it gestations to be more twinkling than momentous. Jill Soloway's singular brand of subdued comedy/drama also feels as poetic as ever, even if this season's drive and pacing can't compete with the previous three years. While it's clear now that Jill Soloway is saving her experimental juices for I Love Dick, her other Amazon original, Transparent still remains a most-beautiful passion project of her's, and likely still the best family dramedy on television.

    If I could give this show 0 stars, I would. The show is so bad, yet I can't stop watching. Part of me wants it to get better, but obviously the other part of me hates it. This show is just a load of bull. They think they're addressing issues, but they're really just making their point of view look worse than it is.

    Love it. I love Josh's storyline from start to finish in the episode. So real. Ali's adventure seems real too. I love that the kids are not Botoxed, and youngish people can have sometimes un-beautiful screwed up faced emotions. Nice evolution with Davina. Some explorations seemed really interesting and then were somewhat left behind. I find the 20 minute episodes and the season way too short. Waiting a year for 250 minutes of 10 episode series, seems like a cruel tease.
