Transparent brings boldness, braveness and brilliance to American television. Presented by Amazon Prime, it’s about a Los Angeles family whose father one day declares, Don’t call me Mort; from now on, I’m Maura.
I dubbed the first two episodes “Crazy Jews in L.A.” But as the family stories and history unfolded, I came to think of it as, with Breaking Bad, the best series in the history of American television.
But note — Transparent is not for the sexually timid. It is awash in graphic sex of nearly every description with nearly every combination of adult participants. Be prepared.
We’re so taken with Transparent that when members of the cast and crew came to the San Francisco Film Festival, we not only bought tickets, we captured their presence on the Red Carpet. Check out Effin’s photos.
