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

Trivia

(February 2018) Jeffrey Tambor was officially fired from the show after Van Barnes and Trace Lysette accused him of sexual harassment (acting inappropriately and making sexual advances) in November 2017. Tambor denied any claims made against him by the actresses when they were first revealed. Already months before the firing was made official, Tambor stated that he can't see how he could return to the show due to set's "politicized atmosphere". See more »

Hit a bit too close to home at times
23 December 2014 | by egoodeSee all my reviews

I had lots of friends keep letting me know they had watched Transparent and thought I should watch it. I had been holding off though as my Dad came out as transgender about 2.5 years ago and was worried how I would react to it.

Overall I really enjoyed the series but there were conversations that were almost word for word the same as one's I had when I first found out about my Dad and I did end up in tears at points remembering how hard it all seemed at the time.

I think the series perfectly shows how you start questioning your life when you discover something major about your parents that you never could have guessed but may have felt things weren't quite as they seemed. I know I definitely felt my Dad had been hiding something for years before I found out but never suspected it was wanting to be a woman.

The acting is fantastic in this series and the story is definitely an aspect of life that most people haven't had much contact with or know much about but does seem to be something more people are willing to share and make people more aware of.
