Mesmerizing
27 September 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A truly fantastic show. It is raw, painful, heartbreaking...and yet it manages to warm the heart. This show is currently at 7.1 on this site, but I am certain that rating will rise as more people see it.

All the of the performers shine. I won't go down the list - the cast is truly top-notch. The obvious mention, though: Jeffrey Tambor. He is a revelation (can an acclaimed actor be a revelation?). While he could have resorted to overplaying moments, he instead keeps the character grounded and real throughout. His monologue in the pilot is a masterclass in acting. Judith Light really gets to shine in the later part of the season - balancing humor and pathos perfectly.

If I have one complaint, the season seems to lag near the end. Not in quality, just in tone. While the series starts with a healthy dose of humor and warmth, we're offered less in the last few episodes. The action drifts away from Morty/Maura and, as a result, the the show loses some of its heartfelt center. Personally, I would have preferred wrapping up the season with the focus on Maura.

I feel confident (knock on wood) that we will get more of the Pfeffermans. I certainly hope so -- this series has been a rare treat. I think Amazon has a home run with Transparent - and they really hit this one out of the park.
