Did You Know?


The title is a clever play on words. The word 'transparent' refers to Maura's journey, letting the world see who she really is. Whereas if you break it down to 'trans' and 'parent', trans is short for transgender, and Maura is a transgender parent. See more »

So many stupid cliche's and in the 10's everyone is a lesbian on TV
21 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did like it at first. As many have pointed out the first season was pretty good but it went down hill in the second season. The oldest sister fighting with her husband seemed very realistic about how a lot of married couples interact. Everyone on TV in the past 7-8 years or so is a lesbian. You can't watch a streaming drama, movie or TV show, set in the present time without a lesbian couple or two. 15 years ago you never saw it or once in a blue moon. The lesbian angle is not shocking and ground breaking and cutting edge. No instead it is the cliché' of the '10s. The way it is presented on these shows it would appear that 50% of all women are lesbians. Now BOTH sisters are lesbians? What was the whole point of the younger Ali meeting the guy at the beach? What a waste of film, it had no point. Ali is a total spoiled brat and doesn't even look for a job. Ack I feel like I should finish all of it though, I am at the end of season 2 but I'm getting more and more annoyed with the idiotic plots and the annoying people. Like they were really going to kill Ed? They were all yapping about doing something that is illegal? Maura is great but his kids suck ass! That rabbi would not look twice at the ugly and non-religious son. His son Colton looks nothing like him, just not believable at all. I am going to plow through but Ali bedding Syd just is ridiculous and the Feminist professor plot line is also ridiculous.
