Storyline

Mort has a secret that he really wants to tell his three adult children, who are so self-absorbed they don't see that something has changed for divorced, girlfriendless dad. Even when he invites them to dinner en masse to share his news, somehow, the conversation becomes about them. The secret unfolds, though, when he comes home and sees his married daughter getting intimate with her ex. Now, he knows her secret; she learns his; and the dysfunctional family finds one secret after another being exposed. Written by Jwelch5742

Absolute tripe...
12 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to imagine the levels of narcissism and pettiness required to write the words these actors read on screen. If you could take all of the pointless, self-indulgent, pretentious fluff from every pedestrian soap opera and combine it into one show you would end up with Transparent.

Tambor is easy to enjoy, as per usual, but no other performance stood out. And, for the record, Tambor's character is so cringe-worthy it hardly makes watching his acting worth the rest of the show.

I imagine this is the type of writing you would get from any typical American teenager with ego problems; vapid with a myopic and self- serving view of the human condition. If you're not going to write even one character worth rooting for, your show ought to have some intrigue, mystery, action, or psychological stimulation. Transparent offers none of these things so we're left with a troupe of horrible characters adrift in a sea of pointless drama.

The only activity worse than subjecting yourself to Transparent is acknowledging the fact that it is critically acclaimed, and asking yourself the obvious questions as to how this is possible, and what that says about the general viewing public.

1/10 stars, the one is only for Tambor
