You've All Seen This, I'm Sure

You've probably heard about this show on Amazon Prime.  It's a series of 10 half-hour shows about a father who comes out as transgendered to his family.  I have not seen it; reviews (such as this one) have said it portrays the main character in a positive light.

I am updating this because Alice pointed out that I am an idiot and did not mention the name, which makes the jokes at the end kind of pointless.

The show is called "Transparent."

Alas, as I said, it's on Amazon Prime which I do not have.  And it costs $100 to join, which I also do not have.  Actually, I don't consider the other benefits worth the money and I don't want to throw money at Amazon, until they
change some of their current (bullying) policies towards some book publishers.  The first episode is free, and I will watch that.

All episodes were released last weekend.  If anyone binge-watches, I'd be curious to know what you think.

And if it's successful, don't miss next season's rip-off about a sibling who comes out as transgender ("Transistor") or the children and grandchildren who all come out as transgender ("Transcendent").

  1. Just out of curiosity, did you intentionally not mention the name of the series anywhere in this post? :-)


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
