Did You Know?


The opening credits are a mixture of scenes from bat mitzvahs and 1968 Documentary 'The Queen'. Both are used to represent the change the main character is experiencing. The credits end with the date stamp January 1st 1994, the year frequently flashed back to in the show as the start of Maura's journey to stop appearing like a man. See more »

A waste of time
3 January 2015 | by (Great Britain) – See all my reviews

I was sent this by my son and have struggled to watch all 10 episodes. I found the family members foul mouthed, immoral and promiscuous as parts of a dysfunctional family. The lead actor was difficult to understand as he tended to mumble his lines. I also wondered why he was directed to dress as he did; I could not make up my mind whether he was portraying a gender incongruent, a transvestite or a cross dresser. If he were supposed to be acting out life as a gender incongruent, there was no sense that he had visited any Gender Identity specialist or psychosexual therapists which surely would have made the programme more true to life. As a 71 year old currently transitioning, I found the lead actor's portrayal of a transwoman less than authentic, but I felt sympathy with him when he (she) was trying to explain to his children what he was going through and they did not even listen to him, too tied up in their own lives. I informed my own family before I started the Real Life Experience so family members were aware of the situation early. I do not think this programme helped any understanding of issues that us gender incongruents face which is a pity.
