Transparent: Season 4 (2017)



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

Transparent feels comfortable in its own skin.

Season 4 feels like it's caught in an identity crisis of its own doing; not trusting itself to be the beautiful series that doesn't fit neatly into any one box.

Three years after its initial wave of acclaim, Transparent is as beautiful television as ever, making great use of the hard-won familiarity between its audience and its characters.

Even after four years, the show remains fresh and daring. The rest of the family steps up to the challenge and carries their respective storylines.

It allows us to judge the characters without dismissing them, to cheer for them without excusing them, and to marvel at their small steps toward the transparency the show offers as its cardinal virtue.

As always, Transparent deftly confronts the past as a way of helping to sort out the present.

Transparent is still capable of telling stories and going to emotional places that no other series can, but the older it gets, the harder it becomes to avoid repeating itself, even in a season that largely takes place halfway around the world.

Transparent makes you care about structural inequality, prejudice and people in pain, whether you can summon an iota of affection for them or not. Because at its core, it's a hugely optimistic show, about moving onwards and upwards despite trauma.

Season 4 adds new pages to the Pfefferman's history but feels muddled and confused in comparison to past episodes.
